About Us

Heading out for another military TDY, PCS, or deployment?

Ah, yes – we know the drill. As a fellow Air Force family, we understand the unique challenges of military lodging. We seek to provide our valued military members with a superior TDY, PCS, or deployment experience that brings all the comforts of home while being away.

Just a 7-minute drive to Shaw AFB’s Sumter gate, Home Base Shaw comes fully-furnished with brand-new furniture, including our ridiculously comfortable Lovesac couch. Pick up an Xbox controller, and put your feet up! Wi-Fi, utilities, and weekly housekeeping are also included in your stay.


You can’t underestimate the power of a good night’s rest, so we splurged on The Sleep Foundation’s Most Comfortable Mattress of 2023 in all four of our luxurious bedrooms. Looking to unwind after a long day at work? You’re in luck – our Brunswick, regulation-size pool table is ready for a game or two while you mix up a cocktail from our fully-stocked bar. Perhaps grilling out by the firepit is more your speed? If so, you’ll appreciate our Traeger grill and smoker! Our private backyard with a screened-in porch opens up to a backdrop of Carolina trees.

Make our home your home base, and allow us to give you a 5-star lodging experience! We’re currently taking reservations, so feel free to contact us with any inquiries about Home Base Shaw!
