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.

Spanish moss fairyland

My sister and my roommate from college had a lovely stay at the farm. We took a walkabout of some of the vast property and just swooned at the magnificent trees and wetlands. Breakfast was lovely and held us to dinner. Laura and Meredith kept us entertained with their southern story-telling manner and charm. It's not far to Savannah which held our attention quite beautifully. Thank you very much for the opportunity and hospitality.

wished we could have stayed longer!

Our brief stay at Dunham Farms was delightful and the genuine hospitality extended to us was most appreciated! The warm and relaxing conversation helped to melt away the stress from the crowded holiday traffic we had just experienced. The most comfortable bed and the delicious breakfast were a delight! Because it had been raining, we were only able to explore the amazing property briefly before continuing our journey. However, we saw enough to know that we MUST return someday!

Thanks for a job well done!

My favorite part was having a door open up to the beautiful outside---the grounds were breathtaking. The room was spacious and super clean. Food was done with pride and thought.

This was my first trip to this area, and Dunham Farm proved to be the perfect introduction. Spectacular natural environment,interesting & informative co-owners (Meredith & Laura) and breakfasts were out of this world delicious! A couple of days at Dunham Farm provided a sense of well-being and a new appreciation of nature & life. Would love to visit again! Joan from San Diego

fantastic anniversary stay

Our weekend stay at Dunham farm exceeded all expectations. Laura and Meredith go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and are the most gracious hostesses. It's a very cozy and relaxed atmosphere, a perfect place to unwind from it all. We had many of our meals on site and the food was fantastic. We highly recommend this b&b.

kayaker's paradise

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.

unique and exceptional

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.
