I recently stayed at Open Gates for two nights with my school age children upon the recommendation of a relative and friend. This was my children's first stay at a B&B. We all enjoyed the time there as the room was spacious, well decorated and well furnished. We stayed upstairs and enjoyed the comfy bed.
Our hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming to our children. Breakfast was very good and the host was kind enough to fix waffles for my somewhat picky eaters. The shrimp and grits were absolutely delicious.
We spent time at Fort King George, Southeast Adventures Kayaking tour and did some shopping at the outlet mall that includes the usual suspects as well as a unique antique shop. We ate at a fun restaurant called Purple Pickle.
I really appreciate the fact that the hosts welcomed my children as I did not want to stay in a chain hotel while visiting the area.
