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.

Nothing short of PERFECT

This was our first time at an actual B&B. My girlfriend and I were stunned with how peaceful, beautiful, & perfect Dunham Farms was from beginning to end! Our Inn keeper(Becky) was more than kind and helpful with anything and everything we needed. It was such a wonderful place I proposed to my now Fiancé there and we will be planning to to have our wedding there in the near future aswell. We will definitely make this “our place” after the amazing experience we had there.

Wonderful and Peaceful

Relaxing stay

If you like amenities but like spending time outside on the Georgia coast, Dunham Farms has the land. You can swim, canoe, kayak, or just relax.

Dunham Farms is like going back in time at an exquisite southern plantation. Our hostess Meredith, greeted us outside when we pulled in and walked with us to the bluff overlooking the tidal flats. After we toured around the property we were escorted to the Palmyra barn with the most wonderful rooms furnished with upscale linens and comfortable furnishings. Our breakfast was wonderful! Our only consideration with our stay was that we could only spend one night. The next time we visit Dunham Farms, we are going to plan on a much longer stay to take advantage of everything the plantation has to offer. Thank you Meredith!

An Idyllic setting that is picturesque in its natural simplicity

If your desire is to find a place that is bucolic, pastoral and peaceful, then you need to visit Dunham Farms. The hosts and staff are delightfully congenial and really try to accommodate all reasonable needs. I will definitely go back.

Magical Christmas!

I combined a stay at Dunham Farms with their Christmas Illumination Night gathering. This was a surprise for my significant other to start the Christmas season. Let's just say she was thrilled and my expectations were far exceeded! Absolutely magical evening and stay! The B&B is wonderful! Full of low country charm. So peaceful and quite. We had a wonderful sunrise view of the river, right through the windows of our room! The staff is equally warm and charming. We will definitely return! Looking forward to visiting during warmer weather for some kayaking!

An amazing weekend!

My wife and I traveled to Dunham farms for our 5th wedding anniversary. We needed some down time and a lot of relaxation and this was the place. First impression driving on to the property was breath taking, the farther on the property we went the more excited we became. We literally felt like we left the modern day world at the gate. The rooms are excellent nothing more than what we needed, had amazing views, were extremely clean and were perfectly comfortable. The views on the property you just have to see for yourself. We ended up being the only 2 staying that weekend and thought we might get shorted, we didn't we felt pampered. Scott cooked an amazing breakfast both mornings and talked to us like we were old friends. We met the owners but I don't recall their names but were great! Its a small drive from Savannah but its worth the drive for the relaxation. We highly recommend and so long to make a trip back. This is honestly the first vacation I've left from and felt relaxed but so sad knowing we had to go back to being adults!!! Thank you Dunham Farms Staff!!

Exceptional hideaway

Only 30 minutes from Savannah this lovely rural property was beautiful! The rooms were unique and cozy, and the food superb. My family loved this place and I recommend to anyone looking for a break from typical hotels in a gorgeous setting. Really enjoyed learning about the local history from the owner.

Dunham Farms - an awesome visit

5 on September 19, 2016

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.
