The owner & chef Zach Rath, was very attentive and accommodating; he truly made our stay feel like visiting a friend. Zach is a wonderful chef, the breakfasts were as beautiful as they were... More

If you like historical places or something different than the typical hotel OpenGates Bed and Breakfast is a fantastic place. For me as I was used to this style of house growing up it felt like home away from home. Try to arrive early enough so you can enjoy a peaceful porch with live oaks surrounding the area and the...

all though this establishment is a B & B, we were taken there for breakfast only by a local in Darien. The breakfast served by Zac was just wonderful. Zac has a fixed menu which changes daily, all looked yummy to say the least. It was lovely to have Zac sit down and chat with us during our breakfast. We... More

We were there for a wedding which was held at the B&B. We stayed in one of the rooms, and were treated to delicious breakfasts made by Chef Zach. He and Carrie were extremely friendly and exhibited their interest in our comfort. We appreciate their kindnesses, and attention to our needs. Zach's crepes are amazing. If you're into B&Bs, this...

We had such a great stay. Breakfast was wonderful. Thank you so much for working with our dietary needs. The little historic city was great to walk around in during the evening. The pool was relaxing. We have told all our friends and family about this great B&B. We will be back for sure.

Zachary was a great host from beginning to end. Really comfortable bed and pleasant bathroom, love the tub with HOT water. Swimming pool a huge plus with hot weather. Great breakfast. Good location to explore a tiny old style town, walking distance of everything, quiet and safe.

Pleasant old time south, felt like I was drawn back in time. Zack met us at the door ,to his historical house, carried our bag to our upper carriage house room, then brought us water in crystal carafe and beautiful glasses. The room was shabby chic with comfy king size bed and quality linens, topped with Sugar Marsh Chocolate sea... More

Wow! What a great review! Thank you so much. We are so lucky to have found such a beautiful, quiet, quaint coastal Georgia town. We are the perfect place to explore for a quick weekend away, or great central location to explore the Georgia coast. We have great beds and award winning breakfast's!

B & B with gracious, pleasant host. Outstanding food. Location interesting, quiet and easily explorable. Clean and comfortable. Settled in a charming, historical square. I cannot think of anyway our host could have improved our visit. Come and be spoiled at a reasonable price.
