Great place to see a bit of history. The plantation originally belonged to one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Walking the grounds, it reminded one of being in the movie, The Patriot. The site has a modern tea room, and you can purchase tea from a selection of plantation blends. We got several boxes of the House... More

We stopped here on the way from Myrtle Beach to Charleston the week after Christmas. The tea room was closed but we got to walk around the home and other buildings. We were the only people there. Hope to visit again in the future when we can get an official tour.

On the our way south to Charleston we decided to stop at the plantation. Glad we did, the cost was $17.50 pp and my wife and I got a private tour since it wasn't busy. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She explained a lot above the house, the families who lived there and the involvement of the slaves... More

We were part of a small (7 people) tour of the plantation grounds and house, the guide was fantastic (her knowledge of history and local events was impressive, her delivery eloquent and the pace perfect). The house is still occupied so the tour really had a realistic feel rather than a museum dryness about it. We were given total access... More

The house was built in the 1730's as part of a large rice plantation. Original owners were involved in the revolution and signed the Declaration of Independence. The house and grounds including the Tea Room are real gems. The house tour covered the family's history, construction and interior furnishings. Most informative. PS: Take a break and enjoy a lovely lunch... More

Hopsewee Plantation was built in the 1700's and the house has been little changed since that time. Our guide had grown up in the house and was able to share personal anecdotes as well as tell about the history of the plantation. The grounds are beautiful with many huge live oak trees with Spanish moss hanging from the branches. A... More

A friend had stopped by without touring and thought a group of ladies might enjoy the tour and lunch/tearoom. It was a little muddy from all the rain lately. The lady who gave the tour was very knowledgable and the house is authentic 1700 and still currently a residence. The house cats are sweet but unfortunately have left their scent... More

We stopped here on the way to Charleston and are very glad we did. We first had lunch at the Tea Room, which was wonderful, and then took the tour of the house. Jeannie was our tour guide, and she was very knowledgeable and personable. The owners of Hopsewee actually live there and graciously open their home to visitors from... More

This tour was so much fun. Our guide's family owned it at one point, so she had plenty of fabulous stories. Don't miss the Tea Room for lunch, the tomato pie was to die for.
