Zach & Carrie are two wonderful people. Very polite and generous. The house felt like home away from home! My husband and I traveled from Lancaster Pennsylvania on a business trip. Zach met us outside and took our suitcases to our room which was beautiful ! Zach and Carrie would go out of their way to accommodate your every need.... More

This is our second visit to Open Gates. Zach and Carrie are wonderful innkeepers . Not only are the rooms beautiful and comfortable, but the breakfasts are fabulous. Be sure to check out Sugar Marsh Cottage Chocolates. You do get a sample with your room, but you will want to buy more. Darien itself is lovely, quaint and quiet. There's... More

Great Place! Felt at home from the time we arrived--Zach is a Great host. A step back in time in a quaint southern home, highlighted by a Top-Notch "Award Winning" breakfast. A true winning combination that we are sure to visit again.

Only needed to stay one evening, but had a great night's rest in a beautiful room, with a warm welcome (including fresh baked cookies!). Great breakfast - lovely, quiet and quaint area. Would go back!

The room was very clean, well organized, the owner Zach was very welcoming, he gave us a tour of the house offered refreshments and not long he had fresh cookies coming out of... More

First time visitors but will definitely return and tell our friends! We stayed 3 nights at Open Gates to celebrate our anniversary and we already cannot wait for our next visit. The Garden Room was beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. Because it is an older home the shower was small so if you do have special needs you will... More

A delightful clean and quiet B and B with a delicious full breakfast. Located in a quaint older area with some history. The host, Zach, was a very nice and informative host. I would definitely stay here again if I were to be in Darien again.

We have searched out B&Bs all over the world and found a 5 star jewel in our own back yard! Open Gates is less than an hour from our home, but having experienced a wonderful breakfast there, we booked the entire house for a New Year's celebration with old friends. When we arrived, freshly baked cookies were available. We entertained... More
