We’re Not Your Average B&B!

Inviting. Charming. Relaxing.

Imagine spending a night in a historic mansion in the heart of picturesque South Carolina. Guests from around the world often find themselves welcomed like an old friend coming home! 

Nestled on Brandon Estate under a canopy of majestic trees, the Creole Dame Bed & Breakfast offers all the charm of an old home with modern-day amenities and maximum comfort. A fusion of sophisticated and characteristics architectural designs from the 1700 to 1830s. All guest rooms are on the second floor in the original farmhouse (now called plantation house), with the two wings featuring the owner’s private areas, built 84 years ago.

Adjacent to the main house is the lovely Carriage House. Built in 2015, it boasts a one bedroom fully furnished apartment, now Emma Jean Retreat. 

We invite you to visit us. We’re located near historic downtown Sumter, the University of South Carolina, Shaw Air Force Base, and historic Morris College. A short stroll to Swan Lake Iris Gardens, Patriot Hall, and dining, shopping and entertainment. Pamper yourself with the opulence of the Gilded Age, and enjoy a piece of traditional Deep South in this awe-inspiring home on age-old grounds. Happy stays are here!

Same day appointment are not accepted online. Please contact us directly.
