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.

About 40 minutes from downtown Savannah this place is a real gem for peace and quiet! We couldn't have asked for a nicer place and outstanding innkeepers! Hiking trails and kayaking, great breakfast, cozy reading room in the loft, comfortable and clean rooms. This was originally a barn and since we're horse owners, we felt right at home! If you're into peace and quiet, but wish to enjoy the Savannah city highlights for part of the time, this is the place to stay. We'll be back!

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.

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!

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

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.

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.
