I had never been to Darien and the website for Darien got my attention. When looking for a B&B, the website for Open Gates came up. I love grand old houses and this B&B offered the services of a chef. That really got my attention. I was not disappointed with the accommodations, the service or the breakfasts. The location was peaceful, beautiful square, and walking distance to the waterfront area. There was a wine bar and excellent waterfront restaurant within easy walking distance. The owners of the B&B are delightful. I was fortunate to find such a treasure. Jekyll Island is less than an hour south and it is one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see.This area of Georgia is full of history and there's lots to see.
