Thee Matriarch Bed and Breakfast, Meetings and Special Events Venue

Located in Orangeburg, South Carolina and owned by husband and wife team, Rachelle Jamerson-Holmes and Fred Holmes, Thee Matriarch B&B is a pioneer of a new concept in bed and breakfast hospitality. It offers space for meetings and special events providing full catering.

The couple bought two 100-year-old generational homes back in 2001. After getting the properties exactly the way they wanted it, they opened their inn to the world Feb. 22, 2012.

Co-Owner Jamerson-Holmes tells BlackEnterprise.com, “Love starts at the front door.”
