We will be back. Absolutely the most peaceful, wonderful bed and breakfast that I have stayed at.

Quiet 6,000 acre nature retreat with spacious, well appointed, claen rooms in a recently remodeled vintage barn. Fantastic breakfasts prepared by the incredibly talented owner and her awesome staff. Opportunities for kayaking, wildlife viewing and photography, and hiking. An amazing place filled with history dating back to 1755. We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts - this is the best! A perfect setting for a very relaxing getaway.

We stayed there for two nights on the way to Tybee Island. The grounds were beautiful and the room was very comfortable and cozy. The owners were away but our hosts were just great. Breakfast was waiting on the table each morning and it was delicious. We also found the BEST seafood restaurant "Sunbury Crab Co". We ate there both nights and it turned out to be the best seafood restaurant of our entire vacation.

We loved our stay at Dunham Farms!! The setting is gorgeous, renovation on the barn is amazing; The rooms are CLEAN, cozy and quiet. Quick drive to Savannah for an afternoon of shopping and dining turned out to be the perfect distance. We did have a problem with the upstairs AC not cooling well (it was the first really hot weekend of the year), but a quick call to the staff had us moved into another room downstairs in just minutes. We will definitely be staying here again for our future kid-free getways from Jax.

This was my second stay at Dunham Farms, it doesn't get better than this folks. The grounds alone are worth the stay. The owners are gracious hosts, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are spotless, and the food was delicious. Ready to go back!!

This is the second review I've done regarding our stay at Dunham Farms. Never have we ever enjoyed a more serene relaxing stay at a Bed and Breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed walking the grounds. So beautiful as the azaleas were in full bloom and the living oaks also added to the serenity and beauty we felt during our stay. Also loved the History provided by our hostesses Laura and Meredith who couldn't have been more attentive and charming. Thank you again. Mr. and Mrs. Peter Naiukow Merritt, MI.

My wife and I visited for our 4th time Feb 12-15 this year. We love to exprience new places but we just can't seem to pull ourselves away from this place! Meredith and Laura are incredible hosts who make you feel so at home. The history, nature, picturesque settings, accomodations and breakfasts are all incredible. I would highly recommend booking their dinners as well...their home cooked meals are absolutley incredible. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing, laid back, beautiful getaway.

My wife and I booked a stay with the Dunham Farms Bed and Breakfast because it was only a few hours away and we wanted to stay at a place that was quiet and close to nature. We were not disappointed. The entrance from the highway is an unimposing unpaved road draped with beautiful mature trees filled with Spanish moss. My wife and I enjoyed walking the property, admiring the nature of the tidal marshes and taking photographs. We saw a raccoon, along with various woodpeckers, kingfishers, warblers, egrets, herons, and others. The room was comfortable and decorated with antique furnishings reminding you of the history of the property. The breakfast was delicious and proprietors, Laura and Meredith, were delightful as they enthusiastically shared stories about the land and their family. We plan to return to Dunham Farms because the real attraction is not the room itself, but the natural, unspoiled beauty of the land, the history of the property, and the fascinating history of Laura and Meredith's family, which traces its roots back to a land grant from the King of England in 1755. This property will appeal to anyone interested in nature, quiet locales for weddings or family gatherings, birding, kayaking, hiking, seafood, archaeology, colonial American history, African America history, or the history of early Spanish colonization of North America. I rarely write reviews, but our stay was so enjoyable, I had to share with others who may be considering a visit to the area. Laura and Meredith, we sincerely enjoyed our stay.

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!!!
