Thank you so much for the services provided! ...Hospitality was spot on! This is a wonderful venue to share in what is a family atmosphere.  Also what some could consider a "spiritual" experience.  Thank you for sharing your family home and it's History with us!  Our prayer is that it grows into a successful venture for you all and an eye opening/heartwarming experience for all who partake.  God Bless & Best Wishes!

Dear Boykin Family, 

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with me and the C. family. I left a thank you gift.  Please look in the kitchen cabinet; top cabinet above the sink near the entrance.  I bought two wine glasses for you and your next guest.

Hello Soror Yvette, 

We had the privilege of celebrating our 21st Deltaversary  brunch at your beautiful house.  The accommodations and service were impeccable.  I would highly recommend your house for an event and housing accommodations in the Sumter, SC area. Thank You!

Dear Boykin Family, 

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, the C. family, during our time of grief!  Your generosity allowed us to spend time together under one roof as we mourn the lost of our son, Tyler - 27 years of age.  God Bless you and your family!

Dear Boykin House Family,


It’s been a wonderful experience to stay in such a beautiful home!!! The house is wonderfully furnished and you can feel the spirit of the ancestors in every room!  As my father is a native of Sumter, SC (Rembert), I love learning the history of this area, and having the opportunity to rest well every night in this magnificent space!  We all felt so “at home!”  I hope you will one day consider to add breakfast to add to this one-of-a-kind residence…I slept well every night and enjoyed reading, watching movies or various programs available to guests.  This is a “home away from home” and an experience to be cherished!


I am sharing the news about The Boykin House with my family and friends.  I am sure many will want to visit and stay here.


Thank you for an enjoyable stay!!!

“Enjoyed my stay at The Boykin House.  This place has a beautiful energy of warmth and family.  The side porch with rocking chairs was nice to sit and listen to the birds with other sounds of nature.  This house is true bliss.”

"Enjoyed myself at The Boykin House.  I felt so relaxed in the Marvin Room.  I felt like a little girl rocking in the rocking chair on the from porch feeling the warm sunshine and enjoying the cool breeze.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home.

"Dear Boykin Family,

Words cannot express being immersed in the history and warmth while staying at The Boykin House.

The clean spaces, comfort and character provided in each room create a very unique and special experience that is a much more personal and family like atmosphere you could never find in a hotel.

Being here has brought back many familiar memories of previous times we have been in Sumter.  Thank you for making this a special experience and we cannot wait to come back.
