“Cozy Darien Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We visited the Darien Water Front Inn for our 1 yr anniversary as a dating couple. The Inn was as pictured, and the rooms were as described. The Inn Keeper was very sweet, and made us feel right at home. Only draw back for this property - the walls are thin, so we did hear our neighbor snoring, and we needed to be aware of our own noise levels as well. We visited several local places for dining and loved the atmosphere of the Inn. Bathroom was spacious, but for some reason had a tiny tub, and could have used a bit of updating. We stayed two nights in the Tara, and enjoyed our stay. We would return, and would like to try another room since each one has a 'theme'.

Room Tip: Email the inn keeper if you have room questions. Rooms are as pictured, but not all things listed in...

We decided to cut our trip in half and stay at the Darien Inn again. They did not disappoint at all! The room was very clean and the AC was ice cold which was a good thing since it was late August early September and still hot ! On our last stay we had some rambunctious kids next door that made our stay lively and due to that Joann had offered us another stay. Given that this was last year that this happened we were not too sure if she would honor that but to our surprise and delight she remembered us and gave us a free night ! We are very impressed with Joann's Inn and her professionalism. We plan to make this our go to place when we make our drive from Florida to NC. We also loved the french toast breakfast ! We really enjoy sitting out on the back porch and listening to the peace and quite in the evening with a glass of wine and in the morning with our coffee. Definitely takes the stress off of a 10 hours drive.

Room Tip: Skippers fish camp is just behind the Inn so dinner is in walking distance. Also room #1 is really...

The Darien Waterfront is no doubt quirky. A renovated warehouse that fronts a parking lot of a local fish camp but affods views of the river in the deep south with a yankee inn keeper can only be described as quirky. The accomodations are nice, but not quite polished; for example the bathroom sported trim that was primed but not painted and not all the walls were flush. Jo Ann did a good job of being available but not too much in your space. The access to fun shopping and fresh seafood dining that this Inn offers are the greatest selling points.

Our bed was not the most comfortable with a partially flattened foam pad doing more damage than benefit. Breakfast was nice but simple. We had a livingsocial that included use of the house kayaks and that was a nice addition.

Darien Waterfront Inn is set on a hill overlooking the Darien river and the shrimp boats tied up there. Peaceful and delightful accomodations in very relaxing atmosphere. Great restaurant just a short walk.

Room Tip: Any room would be fine.

This is a neat inn located in the historic town of Darien. The inn is located adjacent to a river providing nice views from the expansive porch. A freshly cooked hot meal got the days started off on a very positive note. The inn keepers, Jo Ann and Kelly, were nice and friendly but not overbearing. The location of the inn is very convenient to shops and restaurants. By using their bikes you won't need the car during your stay. Bring your bug spray as the mosquitoes are on the prowl throughout the town.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the two end units being they have extra windows. The other rooms seem like they would...

We were here for 3 nights, that was not long enough. The Inn is better than we imagined. Our room (Tara) looked as if we were the first to occupy it, spotless. JoAnn made sure our needs were met, had a wonderful breakfast for us each morning and told us about the things to do here in Darien. A wonderful town to get away from the hustle of city life. Enjoyed setting on the deck watching the activity on the river. A lot of great seafood restaurants nearby. A lovely Inn. Thanks JoAnn for making our trip so special, we will be back!

We loved staying here. The one thing we didn't like was it was only for 2 nights. This year we are going to stay longer. We met the owner and her whole family. Hung out on the porch that overlooks the water with them both nights. Can't wait to get back there in June.
