I brought 35 of my tour clients to Open Gates as were returning to Florida from Savannah a few days ago. Chef Zach created a unique and delicious low country boil for the entire group, and his wife Carrie & their sons (and their friends!) delivered an A+ service experience which made our visit something very special. What a most marvelous time! After perusing the web for just the right location to add touch a southern charm to our tour, and speaking to the owners to be sure they were comfortable with what we wanted to do, Zach and Carries agreed to host our group, and we were absolutely thrilled to find Open Gates just as described. You can forever find beautiful architecture and history in Savannah, all over the South actually, but there is nothing like becoming part of a southern town like Darien, Georgia to show you what being in the South is all about. This lovely B & B exemplifies what a warm, and relaxing environment means. SItuated under stately live oaks in a town square, and in a community with a few downtown shops as well to explore, Open Gates exudes charm. We did not have the chance to stay the night, but what we did experience was the Inn's sense of comfort and the excellent meal Zach prepared. Service was top notch, and everyone was thrilled to have had the opportunity to enjoy a true southern gem. We were even treated to the delights of Sugar March Ranch - creators of the sweets for the Inn just across the tree-lined street! We'll be back of course. This is a perfect venue to host a luncheon, party, wedding reception... sits right next to a church too! Enjoy!
