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

The Hopsewee Plantation is well worth the visit. The home is actually lived in and the tour covers almost all of the home and grounds. Our guide was most informative and made the tour both fun and informative. They also showed a short film telling the history of the plantation. If you like you can grab a bite to eat... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the Hopsewee Plantation. The video presentations were very good in explaining the history and life on this former rice plantation. It was amazing to see a house from the early 1700s that had remained virtually untouched other than having electricity and indoor plumbing added. There were very interesting artifacts, paintings and antique furniture in... More

We added this tour to our recent visit to the area. The grounds were very nice and fairly well maintained. The house was interesting in terms of its construction and how it has been used over the years. More context and more information on the cultural aspects of how life would have been for the different families who lived there... More

This was a lovely outing with my mum and husband. We couldn't believe the people actually live in the home! How nice of them to share this treasure. Lovely grounds and tour. We stopped at the tea house after and it was so quaint. I had the minted lemonade which was absolutely wonderful. This is a must see.
