After many years of opening their doors to entertain and host friends and family, Pam and Darren Tisdale decided to share their beautiful historic home with friends they have not met yet. Making their guests feel at home, like being at grand mama's house, is a passion they have for every visitor that they welcome in. The Heller House Inn has a sub-name that is simply called "Shabbat" . This is a Hebrew word for REST. They desire their bed and breakfast not just to be a place of lodging, but a place each guest can find PEACE and REST.
Pam and Darren were married in 1998 and so their journey began. In the past 19 years, they spent 12 years of that time in youth ministry. With 3 children of their own, it seemed like a perfect fit. Even though they are no longer in church youth ministry, "ministry" has never stopped. They have spent much time on the mission field and still continue to do so today. They currently spend time in Serbia, Romania and Germany ministering the Gospel.
Along with the Bed and Breakfast, Darren runs a full time commercial lawn care business and is also the Mayor of Kingstree.
They have 3 children and 3 grand children with one on the way. Bryant, along with his wife Angela, and the newest addition Lincoln, reside in Columbia, SC. Cole, along with his wife Lindsey and 2 children Colton and Presley Kate are based at the Marine Corp Base on Paris Island, Beaufort, SC. DeAnna, along with her husband Derrell will welcome grand #4. The family is based at the Marine Corp Base in Hawaii.
