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

Entering this historic site is a bit of a teaser as it has very expansive grounds, slave quarters, and located on the waterway - lots of opportunity for a great learning attraction. After buying very expensive tickets which totaled over $70 for 3 adults and 2 children, we were provided a tour of the house (only) which took all of... More

This was a guided tour, not too long, but hit all the info people want to know. And it's not often you can tour a plantation that is currently being lived in. Go!

We chose Hopsewee Plantation for two reasons...it is historical as well as beautiful and it had a working tea room with full Southern Tea service. Our tour began in the parking lot, seemingly as though dragonflies were going to lead us. So beautiful and plentiful we were fascinated with their continuous, albeit non-threatening, attention to us. We obtained our tickets... More

On the contrary, the desert portions were huge and very delicious.The tea room was a lovely, the... More

This original rice plantation home is unchanged on the outside since before the civil war. The house is set in lovely grounds overlooking the river. We arrived and shared the full southern tea so that we each got a taste of the exquisite home cooked savoury plates and cakes. There were over 50 teas to choose from, I really enjoyed... More

The guide was very good, and provided a lot of interesting information. It's a lovely old home that is still lived in. Beautiful grounds, and view of the river.

It was a Low country rice plantation, known far and wide for its particular brand of rice. The beautiful house stands next to the North Santee River. It's been beautiful maintained and is a fine...

Shrimp 'n grits were yummy as was the side spicy southern rice. Fancy dishes, serving pieces and china tea cups atop white crisp table cloths were a... More
