We have been staying in the Garden Room in October and enjoyed our first stay during our US vacation very much. Open Gates is very weel located between Savannah and the Golden Isles and that was why we have chosen this location as our base for some days. It is walking distance to a number of restaurants, so one can leave the car behind and walk along the river for a stroll.
Kelly seems to be a jack-of-all trades; always on the "go". But she and Jeff are present with advice and directions without watching every step you take. Actually, they do not live themselves at the property, so everything from kitchen to the livingrooms is left to the guests.
The good soul of the house is a lady from down the road (Stevie?), who also helps out in the Waterfront restaurant down the road. Always a different breakfast selection each day and lots of helpful advice.
The Garden Room itself (a former poker room!) was clean, quite spacious alsthough the high bed is taking for us Europeans some getting used to. Becaause of the distance from the main house, the Wifi signal was pretty weak, much better at the outside from the veranda.
The church next door was having some serious evening services while we where there. And with "Praise the Lord" the jet-lagged Europeans were put to sleep...
We would certainly return if in the area.More
