Truly enjoyed this smaller plantation home. The owners have done a great job in keeping this property for the public to view. Lovely grounds to stroll. Was fun to go into the attic as well as basement of this home.

The Plantation has lovely grounds and the house is well worth a visit. We enjoyed High tea in the Cottage which was delicious and well presented. Service was excellent. We watched a short video before the tour of the house and grounds. The guide was excellent and well informed. A must see.

Well, my wife and I were hoping to spend a few hours reveling in history and enjoying a full tea experience. What happened instead was an average bar b que lunch and a disappointing afternoon. To be clear, I don't go around panning establishments. For the most part everyone works hard to some degree to try and earn money for... More

Nice plantation along the Santee river between Georgetown and Charlestown, SC. We were in a tour of about 10 and the owner was our tour guide. A wealth of history was given. This plantation is in mostly its original state. Has never been added on. We enjoyed a delightful lunch in the tea room of shrimp and grits. Reservations are... More

Hopsewee is one of the rare opportunities to see an almost fully intact 1800's rice plantation home. And if you can join a tour conducted by Jean, you will be most fortunate. She is a wealth of information and tidbits about the house and the era. The topping on the cake will be if you can enjoy a Southern Tea.... More

Quintessential Southern Hospitality We were just in time to catch the video identifying the historical significance of the landmark and the endurable footprint that the site has left. There was this mystical feel about the grounds and you could feel yourself being beamed back in time. There was just the right mix of new technology and thinking, while capturing a... More

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon we took a trip to see Hopsawee Plantation. It is 12 miles south of Georgetown and easy to find. The home is lovely and the tour guide provides lots of historic stories and information. You are given access to all floors. Additionally there are 2 slave cottages to look at. There is a very nice... More

We enjoyed a nice tour of the plantation house. We also had a wonderful lunch in the tea house before the tour. I had the quiche with a cup of "Gin-Gin" soup. The soup is a creamy chicken with wild rice & mushrooms. Excellent! After the tour we went back for dessert. I had the sampler plate that included 3... More
