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!
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!
The planned focus of this trip was to see Savannah. The real highlight for us was the time we spent at Dunham Farms. The propery is absolutely gorgeous. We stayed at the Palmyra Barn in the Hideaway Suite. The room is huge and very well furnished. It's hard to believe you are in what used to be a hay loft. We slept better there than at home and it was soo peaceful. Each day started with a multicourse breakfast prepared by the owners and wonderful chefs, Laura and Meredith. The walking trails have all kinds of wildlife to observe as well as beautiful flora. This is a definite getaway to return to with plans to stay longer next time. The hosts really do make you feel like more than just guests.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dunham Farms. A highlight was the opportunity to walk around the property with one of the owners and learn so much about the history of this area The property was beautiful and peaceful.
Spent most of the evening in Savannah celebrating St. Patrick's Day, so we unfortunately did not get to enjoy Dunham Farms as much as we might have. But I can say that the staff bent over backwards to accomodate our late arrival time, offered us a late breakfast after all the other diners were finished, and when we declined, sent us on our way with a chunk of delicious Irish soda bread. We did get to spend some time that morning touring the grounds, and I can say without reservation that the location is beautiful. Watching the sun rise over the salt marsh was a memorable sight indeed. Recommended! Especially if you're visiting Savannah but would prefer to stay out of the fray in regards to accomodations.
Dunham Farms is everything it claims to be and beyond. A historic, wonderful, peaceful atmosphere. Inn is cozy yet spacious, comfortable and tastefully arranged. Views, grounds and breakfast are amazing. Owners are lovely, prominent family with an impressive history.
Dunham Farms is the perfect b'n'b in the Savannah Area. My girlfriend and I are huge star gazers and hikers. The trails at the Farms were very well kept, and sprawled out for miles. It is very close to the city and all the local islands. We were in love with the room. We were in love with the staff. They were all super nice and the breakfast... Worth it!!! Did not expect it to be that Amazing. THANK YOU!!
