Fantastic B & B located on the Georgia Marsh and waterways!

Fantastic location on the Georgia marsh and waterways! Dunham Farm is a rustic but very elegant charmer! Meredith met us with a warm welcome and platter of hot and cold snacks. We stayed in the converted barn, our room was very comfortable and was decorated with lovely antique furniture. Can't say enough about the location, we enjoyed complimentary coffee and teas in the guest sitting area, before strolling along the waterway and checking out the indoor swimming pool. Meredith directed us to the Crab Company restaurant nearby for dinner, most enjoyable. We also enjoyed chatting with our hostess who is very knowledgeable about the history of the area! Lots to do in the way of outdoor activities such as kayaking, hiking and bird watching, as well as a few historic sites nearby. Having only one night to enjoy Dunham Farms this trip we opted to relax by the water and watch for wildlife! After a gourmet breakfast we sadly said our goodbyes, but we will be back very soon now that we have found our new favorite Bed and Breakfast Inn!!!

Secluded B&B

Found this wonderful B&B while looking for places to stay in Savannah. It is hidden about 20 minutes away from Savannah surrounded by beautiful marshlands. You can hike the trails or visit the historical sites in the area. Our room was comfortable and super clean. Our hostesses a mom and daughter team were really knowledgeable and made our stay very enjoyable. The breakfast was great and if you make reservation 48 hours in advance they will serve dinner. I highly recommended Dunham Farms.

Wonderful Stay!!

We had such a wonderful stay here to celebrate the end of the school year. All of the food was DELICIOUS (including the cookies!!). We had a great time exploring the vast property, as well as taking a guided kayak tour with Meredith. We will DEFINITELY be back!!!!

Super peaceful B&B

Superb 3-night stay. The meals were ultra delicious and very creative. Certainly exceeded our expectations from having stayed at other B&Bs. The large property made it nice to ramble around and enjoy the uniqueness of the area. The room was private and quiet; a definite plus! Would definitely stay here again.

This bed and breakfast was absolutely amazing! The views, the rooms, the hospitality all the way down to the homemade breakfast was perfection! I would highly recommend this B & B!

Gorgeous wedding venue

5 on April 27, 2015

I recently got married out at Dunham Farms, and I must say that it was absolutely perfect! Meredith and Laura were so helpful, and not only had a business interest in my wedding, but also had their hearts into it! I have received so many compliments from so many of the guest and my entire bridal party, which all stayed at the Bed and Breakfast! I would recommend Dunham Farms to anyone for their special event, and I can't wait to go back!

Peace and Quiet in Natural Setting

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!

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!
