We've been going to B.I. for the past 3 years to celebrate our anniversary wknd and we've booked a different bed and breakfast each time so we could try out new places and find a favorite. I don't know if we will be able to 'branch out' any longer as we both loved this place! The best part, by far,... More

There are many great things to say about the Darius Inn. We arrived very early with our two girls (ages 3 & 8) and we were able to store all of our luggage until our room was ready. They recommended a great restaurant for lunch and we were off to explore the island. The great thing about the Darius is... More

We spent a lovely weekend at the Darius Inn. The girls couldn't have been more helpful and gracious. They provided everything from a creative breakfast to lovely happy hour to chairs, umbrellas and towels.

My sister and I had a very relaxing couple of days in BI. We loved the decor of the Darius, as well as the great common covered porch and seating area. It rained on our second day, but there were plenty of places to spread out and read/nap. After the first night I realized my sister snores, and the owners... More

This Inn is now my top selection for a quick trip to the Block, as we are from south Florida, we aren't used to staying at smaller Inns & B&B's but coming across the Darius Inn was a blessing in disguise! There happened to be a last minute cancellation! It was super cute, clean and the girls did a great... More

The rooms are comfortable. The sisters who own the place are wonderful. The breakfast is just perfect - yummy and so many choices. You won't have to eat lunch! The inn provides beach chairs and beach towels so you can pack lighter. It is located just outside of the downtown so sound can be an issue at night. Bring ear... More

We needed a place for 1 night, and randomly came across the Darius Inn. Very laid back, and welcoming. The owners were great and the breakfast was amazing. Awesome location too. We will most certainly be back for a longer trip.

The Darius Inn is low-key and welcoming in a convenient spot near the ferry, restaurants and beach. It's decorated with an artsy and eclectic flair by the three sisters who run it. We found it be clean and homey with a lovely side porch on the second floor that is great for relaxation. We enjoyed having our breakfast on the... More

We had a delightful stay at the Darius Inn this past weekend. Christy made the most scrumptious breakfasts ever -- including blueberry cake, breakfast salads with arugula and grapefruit, amazing yogurt and plum parfaits, and frittatas with kale from the garden. Going to the beach from the Darius is a hop, skip and a jump -- just grab your beach... More

Just visited BI for the second time and both times we have chosen The Darius, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Everything from the rooms to location, and from the staff to the breakfast both times we have stayed have been absolutely perfect! Did I mention the breakfast?!
