Dunham Farms is a family-owned and operated, nature-based hideaway a short, 35-minute drive from the Old World charm of Savannah, Georgia. This gorgeous, pristine part of the vanishing Georgia coast offers sweeping river views, mysterious wetlands and majestic moss-draped ancient oaks. With luxurious country house lodging accommodations and gourmet dining, Dunham Farms has a special appeal to those who enjoy a quiet, secluded and beautiful break from the rest of the world. Overnight guests are nestled in the middle of 6,000 completely private acres of forests, marshes and fields. Nearby Melon Bluff Nature and Heritage Reserve features an unspoiled 2,200-acre landscape of woods, marshes and river provide miles and miles of private grassy trails abounding with wildlife.

What else a kayaker could wish for? Bring your own kayaks, or rent from Farm - and paddle in the beautiful salt water marshland! You can fish or hike - right on the property, too.

I could not have asked for any better of an experience than my husband and I had at Dunham Farms. The property is absolutely gorgeous! Breath taking! We were made to feel at home by our wonderful hostess Laura. Laura was so welcoming and friendly. She took so much of her time to talk to us, answer our questions and give us the history of her beautiful property. We thoroughly enjoyed her company. The afternoon hors d'oeuvres and morning breakfasts were delicious. The room we selected was quite large and very comfortable. I felt like we got a great value for our money.... delicious food, a comfortable room, a history guide and more. We are already planning our next trip back.

We loved our stay with Laura and Meredith. They are both so passionate about conservation, history and wildlife. The grounds are beautiful. Meredith took us kayaking in the salt marsh, which was a highlight. We will definitely stay there again.

We only had one night at Dunham Farms, but I promise you it won't be our last! The grounds and accommodations were beyond our expectations - majestic moss covered oaks, beautifully restored buildings tastefully decorated with an eye toward the rich history of the property. Our host, Meredith was charming and very informative about the history and restoration of the area. We cannot recommend this B&B enough!

It felt like a visit to your favorite cousin. The place was off the beaten path, loaded with history, and accommodations were just right.

More than enough activities and environment to keep you busy yet serene. Learn local history, eat great food, kick back and watch the everchanging wetlands. Beautiful grounds and what a view of the waterway!

Live oaks. Kayaking, marshes, coastline, birding, biking, hiking. And then there's Savannah ga 30 miles away in one direction and St Simons& Sea island an hour or so south. The owners: plantation is still owned by original family who received the charter in 1775. Daughter is an historian/archivist with T Jefferson lineage and mother is an equestrian and artistic art critic who built the jumps for Atlanta 1996 Olympics. So you can see there's lots to do and talk about!
