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

My first B&B experience was this past weekend at Open Gates...Carrie & Zach have set the bar very high. They are most gracious hosts & enjoy sharing the beautiful house, history laden town, + a "secret gem" of Jekyll Island. Already making plans for a return visit to Open Gates.

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!
