Not worth the effort.

The plantation was hard to find and the only activities that I could see was a man pulling a train for kids to ride in. It appeared to be a working farm rather than a tourist... read more

Pick Pocket Plantation is sort of hidden behind an auto parts store. It took us three-quarters of an hour to find it.. even using GPS. So, imagine our chagrin to discover it's no longer open to the public. Don't waste your time... all you can do here is take a picture up the long drive. The view is pretty, but... More

I almost did not find this jewel. What a beautiful house and piece of land. The driveway was hidden and I went past it a couple of times. They also had a little farmers market set up in front of it. Too bad its so hidden in and hard to locate

This small plantation is a delight to go through. It sits back from the street and not easily seen, but we called and found out how to get there. We had a delightful docent give us a tour, and she had a unique insight into the house that she remembered visiting as a child. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of... More

Pick Pocket Plantation. What can you say? Those of you who expect to find a grand ante-bellum mansion in the midst of manicured grounds will be sadly disappointed. The house, which appears to date from the late 19th or early 20th Century, is undistinguished. It may once have been home to a prosperous farm family: but to suggest that it... More

It is difficult to find, since both Google and Apple maps don't have it in the right location. The farmers market was 8 stands: aromatherapy, soap, plants, ice cream, bread, peanut butter, and vegetables (but only 6 varieties). Nothing else interesting, no tour of the house, which was smaller than one would have thought.

It took two trys to locate the plantation so I would recommend asking at the tourist information center at the Arsenal in Beaufort. (She knows everything!!) We visited during the Sat market and all of the vendors were extremely friendly and interesting. They all had homemade goods (mostly foods) but honey and soaps as well. We took several things all...

When I travel I like to experience local color and cuisine. This place has a little of both. It is hidden well but easy to get to. The people that have been showing wares at the farmer's market are wonderful both times I have visited. The 'Candy Lady' makes home made candy including her homemade peanut butter. There is the...

Right smack dab in the middle of the city is a little farm that you would not even know was there. When you drive down the dirt road you are transported back in time! There are several buildings back there: barns, warming house, and a lovely plantation house! They have a farmers/craft market on Saturdays, they have stables, they give... More
