We had travelled from UK and very much wanted to visit a plantation house during our Carolina and Georgia tour and were delighted to read about this wonderful place. Easy to find, just off the highway, you are soon transported back in time as you approach the house down the drive. The house is beautiful with porches on every floor... More

The Plantation was easy to find, and the staff was kind and knowledgeable. There are a lot of mosquitoes, but the staff had bug spray available for us to use for free. The house is beautiful! I wouldn't recommend bringing young children though, as there isn't much to capture their interest or activities that are age appropriate for children under... More

I would highly recommend a visit to Hopsewee Plantation. You learn a great deal about Southern American history, architecture, geography, etc. Do beware the mosquitoes! The owners and staff have bug spray stationed all around so it really is not an issue as long as you use it :)

We are all retired educators with a fairly good grasp of American and African American history. However, our visit to this plantation offered insights and facts that we had heretofore not known. The guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The video pretty show was also historically based and excellent in setting the stage for our tour. Highly recommend.

Just came through after heading about an hour south out of myrtle beach. Totally awesome place to stop and imagine the days of long ago. Unique history of the grounds and house. Pre-revolution period. Had a delightful lunch in the tea room. The food was fantastic. Enjoyed the summer time tomato pie. A must ! And the pimento cheese,gumbo, soups,... More

When you think of a plantation, you think of the history which it didn't have and the people who own it live in it. It was to modernize to fit the history. The tour guide seemed to talk more about growing up there then anything. Also there was a lot of ants in the home.

We were able to enjoy several hours here. We did a house tour and lunch. Then we participated in a basket making class. Everyone was wonderful. They have a tea room on site for lunch.

Was a great time and recommend for all ages. The tour guide shared her knowledge of the plantation with visitors. Nice to know site is being cared for by the community and a very hard working family. Was educational as did not know rice was grown in South Carolina
