How fun to stay in a bed and breakfast over a hundred years old. The attention to detail, drinks on the veranda, breakfast delivered to your room, claw foot tub/shower, quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the rose gardens made this a very enjoyable stay.

We stayed with Rachelle and Chef Fred at their Thee Matriarch B&B in Orangeburg, SC, and it was a fantastic experience! They are welcoming, gracious and friendly - no one is allowed to be a stranger there. Their house is a marvelously restored century home, and they have a second house next door that will be renovated and opened also...

Because of some flooding in our home we had to move out for a few days and Thee Matriarch was our home away from home. Rachelle and Fred were wonderful hosts and treated us like family. Their home is wonderful! It was very comfortable with a private entrance. They were always available without being intrusive. Chef Fred served us a...

We stopped here overnight in January 2016 during our 35th Anniversary road trip. I had mentioned to Rachelle that it was an anniversary trip and when we arrived, Fred had a superb celebration layout in our room (Out of Africa )! It was absolutely perfect as I was not well and we really didn't want to go find a restaurant....

This is the second time I had an opportunity to use Thee Matriarch Bed and Breakfast to celebrate with friends and family. It was my daughters high school graduation drop in.

We only stayed one night. The rooms were comfortable and unlike most Bed & Breakfasts accommodated three travelers easily. We had an issue with a bathroom and Fred & Rachelle handled it wonderfully. No negative impact to our stay! Traveling sisters.
