Darien Waterfront Inn
Ranked #3 of 3 Darien B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 January 2012

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.

Just spent Christmas Eve and Christmas day with Jo Ann. Had a relaxing, and enjoyable time. Biked around Darien and kayaked the river. Jo Ann is a great hostess and cook, and Kelly was quick to prep the bikes and kayaks for us. Perfect get away for a couple, any time of year.

We will return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tara room. Highly recommended.

We stayed here on our way up to NC. It was right off the highway. The rooms were very nice and clean. Each one has a theme. They are in walking distance to some really good clubs and restaurants. Sit outside in the morning and enjoy a coffee with a great view of the river. One ding would be the thin walls. There was a mom and her two kids next door and the kids where up all night. Joann was real nice and offered us a free night though.

We have stayed with Jo Ann multiple times going back to her opening. The Darien area is a jewel of the low country with a people and a heritage that puts you back in a simpler time. The Inn's deck is huge and overlooks a river. The deck is shadowed by Spanish moss covered trees that make it the perfect place to enjoy a nap, a good book, good conversation, or a cool drink. Each room is differently decorated but all are wonderful and immaculately clean. The Continental breakfast is second only to the great time you'll have talking with Jo Ann and the other guests. Nearby restaurants and the wine bar are great as well. The Darien Waterfront Inn is a bed and breakfast where you will feel at home but pampered, welcome at anytime, but never pressured to fit a schedule. We'll see you there.

Room Tip: Enjoy a different one every time you stay.

The Darien Waterfront Inn is the perfect combination of a motel and BnB. with a super sunny deck overlooking the Darien waterfront
The Inn has private rooms like a motel but Inkeeperess Joane sets out a great breakfast every morning so guests can talk and share experiences . Joane also joins in the lively conversation. It is walking distance to a great Wine Bar with live music and three restaurants including the Darien River Inn Where Chef Eric serves haute cusine at moderate prices Skippers 100 yards away makes the best crab cake I have ever eaten or made.

The B&B is in an old warehouse that has been converted into a B&B. We stayed in the "Gone with the wind" room, which was large and had an imitation fireplace. The high bed was very comfortable due to the mattress topper. Breakfast is Continental, with homemade cake and an egg quiche. Better be on time or there might not be any quiche.

Room Tip: Room #3 is the "Gone with the Wind" room

3 couples traveled by open 25' deck boat down the intercoastal from Beauford Sc to Fernandina Beach Fla. we found Darien on the way down and Joanne and Kelly were so kind and picked us up from the marina. We didn't know where we were going to stay unitl we looked up places on the internet. The rooms were unique each of us had a great room. The breakfast was very nice.We enjoyed the waterfront restaurant and the people there. Not being sure how far south we were going, we called at the last minute for 3 rooms on the way back. we were delighted to return there in time for the 1st oyster roast and live music at Skippers . We were able to dock our boat at the dock out front so it was most convienent. All in all a great experience for boaters down the waterway. The Two Way marina was excellent too.

Room Tip: the room with the king 4 poster bed and fireplace was the best!
