We enjoyed our tour of Hopsewee. The house is great. We enjoyed that they have kept it historically consistent. It was also unique that the family lives in the house as well as opening it up to the public. Our tour guide was excellent as well. Very knowledgeable, gave us time to look around each room and explore the many... More

This was a fantastic day. I had the full southern tea lunch. It was very relaxing with the player piano. Then, I went on a very informative tour. It was well worth the money.

My family and I really enjoyed the Hopsewee Plantation tour. Our tour guide Pat was very friendly and informative and he was especially good at engaging our children during the tour. It was very interesting to learn what things may have been like so many years ago and see where the folks actually lived. However, the tour did gloss over... More

My husband and I visited Hopsewee Plantation in mid August. We left N. Myrtle Beach at 8:00 am and made it just in time for the 10 am tour (faulty GPS directions and traffic). The tour started in the tea room with a video. At first we were afraid we'd paid $17.50 to watch a video, but luckily that was... More

Pros: It was fascinating to see such an old house that survived both the revolutionary and civil wars. The tour guide did a great job. The food in the tea room was tasty. Cons: Could not believe the owners keep two male cats in this historic gem. The entire house and cellar smells like cat urine. The historic preservation committee... More

The tea service was wonderful, and the gumbo was really delicious. The plantation itself was absolutely gorgeous, and my husband really enjoyed looking around the grounds and main house. The staff is very friendly.

Tea for two was a joke,and as finishing up our tea time,"FINDING A ROACH BESIDE OUR CHAIR AND FOUR STEPS FROM TABLE ANOTHER ROACH , did not help the digestion of our tea and desserts. Like SOUTHERN LADYS ,we left faster than we came in..don't like sharing my tearoom time with insects!!!!

We traveled from Myrtle Beach, expecting a tearoom experience. Part of the appeal of tearooms is the opportunity to relax, and escape from modern distractions. Not so at the Hopsewee tearoom. The television in the attached room was loud and annoying. The service and food probably would be acceptable for an ordinary lunch, but neither the atmosphere nor presentation are... More

Ok the house is old but that's about it on the good side. It's been updated with power, running water, bathrooms, and a moder kitchen. Nothing is original to the house except the structure. And coming from someone who owns cats, one of the first floor rooms smelled like cat pee so bad it hurts your nose. They could at... More
