My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Open Gates. The breakfast in the mornings was superb - Zach is a tremendous chef - and the room and the house on the whole was very comfortable. A beautiful setting for a romantic getaway. Only down side is a lack of things to do/see in Darien, but quiet may be... More

This is the place to stay in Darien, no words can describe the beauty and history of this magnificent house, the rooms are inviting, beautifully decorate and extremely comfortable. Little touches like the fairy lights on the house, the rocking chairs and swing on the porch made our stay one to remember. Our host Zach was very pleasant and helpful,... More

Had never heard of Darien Georgia but decided to give Open Gates B&B. My husband and I were not disappointed. Zach was incredibly hospitable and the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful. The B&B is conveniently located between Savannah and Jekyll and St. Simon so it did not matter that we were in Darien. Would definitely stay there again!

My husband and I just got back last night from our two night getaway to Open Gates B&B. We went to celebrate our anniversary and we're not disappointed. We are busy working parents of 3 kids and it was the quiet, relaxing stay that we needed. We stayed in the Garden room which is separate from the main house. It... More

We hopped off of Rte 95 due to some stopped traffic ahead on 95, and just figured it was time to find a place for the night anyway. So in passing through Darien, I see on my iPad this small B&B. I called late in the day, probably 7:30 pm, and Zac answered right away, although he wasn't at the... More

Thank you so much for your kind words! We hope you have the chance to come back through this way again and stay a little longer. Darien truly is a hidden little gem of the golden isles. Being just two blocks from the riverfront and centrally located puts us right in the heart of it all. All the best for... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the carriage house room, very comfortable zach was great and his breakfast was amazing! We had wonderful conversation with local visitors for breakfast as well as guests. Just loved the place. Very close to Jekyll island which was awesome after three nights in savannah. Love those Georgia shrimp.

My husband and I chose this B&B because it was a change of pace from the usual I95 offerings. We were so happy to have taken the road less traveled and drove a short distance into Darien, GA. We were greeted on the porch by Zach who immediately offered to help us with our bags and gave us a short... More

Open Gates is a perfect place from which to visit Savannah, Harris Neck and Okefenokee Wildlife Refuges, Jekyll and St.Simons islands on day trips. Quiet, small town with a few good restaurants. A charming host who also is a fantastic chef. The breakfast each day was a gourmet treat! Early spring and few bugs so we enjoyed sitting on the... More

This was a totally wonderful experience. We found the owners very attentive and helpful to our needs. It was a very pleasant time that we spent here . It needs a little TLC, but the way you are made to feel welcome more than makes up for this. We would differently stop again. GREAT breakfast.

Darien, Ga. is a friendly quiet fishing village with a fascinating history on the way to Jekyll and St Simons if you are coming from the north. And right in the center of the historic village among old southern moss draped oaks is the beautiful old home housing Open Gates B&B. I spend a lot of time on the Ga.... More
