Well first I will say that you can see the whole tour by just watching the video right before the tour. The house was not kept up and they tell you someone still lives there which I find hard to believe it is dusty smells like cats and where would they do laundry?? I advise you to look for that...

I have been here twice and have enjoyed a delicious lunch with great service. Setting is quaint with different china settings at each table. The owner has been in the tea room each time we were there and is warm and welcoming. Have only taken the house tour once but would recommend it since you really do go from cellar... More

We stopped on a whim on our way to Charleston. The house is great, and the tour was given by a lady who lived I the house from the time she was 12 until the time she got married. I will definitely be going back and timing it to have lunch in the tea room.

Worth a few hours of your time. House basically unchanged in almost 300 years. Our guide lived there as a child, so we had some very special insights. Have lunch afterward in the tea room. Pimento grilled cheese and great home made soups!

First let me say- this is a rice plantation not a cotton plantation. The two are completly different. I didn't know this until my visit. This plantation was active around the year of 1740. Thomas Lynch was born here and was a signer of Declaration of Independence. There are tours on the hour that were narrated live and very interesting.... More

We visited the Hopsewee Planation and had lunch at the Tea Room and had such a wonderful time. We started the tour off with a wonderful lady (can't remember her name), she was so good at the tour. Then she had to start a new tour so we finished our tour with Cassie who actually had grown up in the... More

My wife and I had a Valentines Day lunch at the Hopsewee Tea Room which is on the grounds of the Plantation. Our lunch was excellent . The meals were artistically presented and consisted of freash ingredients. Service was personal and friendly. All tables were dressed with white tablecloths and included a floral centerpiece. The menu consisted of elegant salads,... More

You've once and for all had enough of "Burger" Places screaming their messages at you and serving food that Michael Douglas so unforgettably called "sorry" (in 'Falling Down')? Why not try a different setup for once? Say you're taking the Outer Banks Route heading for Charleston on US 17, be sure to plan a stop when you hit the road... More

Back in November, on the day my husband and I were headed home, we stopped at Hopsewee Plantation. I had seen an ad for it in the tourism book at our hotel and it looked interesting to me. It was a beautiful, sunny, slightly chilly day. We walked around the grounds, including walking down to the water, where the sun... More

We went on the tour of the plantation and grounds on the last day of our stay in Myrtle Beach. It was only a 45 minute very pleasant drive from our resort. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and the preserved plantation home was just lovely. A truly "don't miss" attraction. Don't forget your camera - there are lovely views... More
