New ownership has brought new energy into this amazing B&B on the square in beautiful downtown Darien! What a gorgeous setting on the grassy square surrounded by several old historic churches and period residences.This lovely old inn is within easy walking distance to the restaurants in town and offers a night's stay for those travelling up or down I95 that takes you off the highway and into the lovely Georgia waterfront town of Darien with a picturesque array of shrimp boats and a relaxing friendly environment. Five minutes from busy I95 and you are transported to another world. Nearby restaurants within easy walking distance offer everything from freshly fried local shrimp and flounder to world class Euro style cuisine. We love B&B's and have stayed in them all over the US and Europe. It is hard to find rooms in them that offer a king sized bed and this inn has several rooms with kings. We booked on very short notice from the highway and Zach was so accommodating. What an interesting young couple who are infinitely capable and are so eager to please. Owner Zach has culinary training and offers a wonderful breakfast, plus he is great company. I slept like a baby in that beautiful king sized bed!!! Old reviews that drag this inn's rating down are written by visitors who visited this inn during the tenure of the previous owners. Do not be deterred. We loved our recent stay in this inn and the picturesque little town of Darien. We will return again and again.
