Darien GA was midway in our trip to Chapel Hill NC and in an area that had some intriguing points of interest. We were not disappointed. The inn is up the hill from the Darien River and a great seafood restaurant - Skipper's Fish Camp - and within walking or driving distance of several interesting historical sites (Tabby ruins, Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation, Fort King George). All the rooms have back doors that open onto a wide porch, which in warmer weather would be a great retreat and vantage point for watching the sunset over the river. Our room was Tara, a good-sized room decorated with a lot of bric-a-brac and photographs from Gone with the Wind. The room and bed were comfortable and well appointed with a sampling of homemade cookies and a pitcher of fresh filtered water. The bathroom was large and had nice towels. We were disappointed in the breakfast - it was okay but not the special treat other reviews led us to expect. But Joanne and her guests made it a socially pleasant experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are not your ordinary inn. Sitting at the end of historic Broad Street, we are situated in a 75-year-old warehouse that boast a riverfront porch spanning our establishment from end-to-end. A few feet from the Darien Development Authority boat docks, you can launch your kayak or take a rest on your journey up-or-down the Intracoastal Waterway. ... more less
