Where Business and Lesuire Meet
Southern Hospitality and Charm



Introducing... Thee Matriarch Bed & Breakfast, Meeting and Special Events Venue.
Orangeburg’s most charming boutique inn is nestled in the heart of historic downtown Orangeburg, SC and along the SC National Heritage Corridor Trail, Thee Matriarch satisfies the need for a full service small to medium size venue featuring elegantly themed guest quarters and meeting rooms.

We look forward to sharing Thee Matriarch story while strolling thru the halls of this Victorian home.   

Elegantly strong and tenaciously beautiful, Thee Matriarch Bed & Breakfast, Meeting and Special Events Venue exemplifies all of the fine attributes required to justify its name.

The 100 year old home is named Thee Matriarch to pay homage to the remarkable women that have tremendously influenced the lives of the owners as well as other phenomenal women around the world.

Each room at Thee Matriarch is named to honor some of those outstanding women.  Below are the names of the rooms, the names of its honorees and their relationship to the innkeepers.
