Innkeepers Kelly & Jeff very friendly and welcoming. We felt at home. The inn is a spacious "homey" Victorian style house with great library and large parlor. One can relax on the porch or by the pool and enjoy the complimentary wine and coffee cake. We had the downstairs room which had a comfortable king size bed and huge bathroom. Although not a problem during our visit, light sleepers may have a problem with this room as it adjoins the library with a television on one side and the dining area on the other side. Jeff's shrimp and grits breakfast very tasty.
The inn is located on the quiet town square. Neighborhood is great for walkers and one can walk to the riverfront to watch the shrimp boats. During our visit Fort King George had its annual Scottish festival and recreation of an attack of the fort - very interesting.
Eating facilities are in short supply in the town. Skippers restaurant was very good and relaxing at the town's wine bar talking with local residents was very nice.
Overall, Darien is a great place to relax and walk. Youngsters & teenagers most likely would not find much of interest to keep them happy.
