This was a lovely outing with my mum and husband. We couldn't believe the people actually live in the home! How nice of them to share this treasure. Lovely grounds and tour. We stopped at the tea house after and it was so quaint. I had the minted lemonade which was absolutely wonderful. This is a must see.

We were excited to see a plantation during our trip to the south and found hopsewee was fairly close to where we were staying. We got to the plantation at 11am just in time for a tour. We were a bit shocked to see it was $35 for two people to do the 1 hour tour, but we were already... More

We had driven by this place several times but had never stopped. This is a great historical property once owned by the Lynch family of Thomas Lynch, Jr. a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The house is original. Our tour guide was awesome. Next time we go, we will try the Tea Room. The house is occupied & the... More

Beautiful property. I was very impressed with how well kept the property was. So much history. The woman that Gabe the tour was charming and did a wonderful job. I would recommend that they get rid of the video. It seems outdated and a little boring. Other than that the tour was awesome. Well done!!

If you want a delicious lunch with a wonderful view and experience a plantation setting this is the place for you. You can also have a guided tour of the plantation. The owners are very hands on with the tea room and tours.

This is a nice tour. The home was built in 1740's using a "peg" system and you will see this in the attic and the basement portions of the tour. Was a home to a signer of the Declaration of Independance. Has an operating tea house on site, but did not stay to try any of the food - although... More

This is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. Go for a tour of the Historic Plantation House once owned by a signer of the Declaration of Independance. Stop by the Tea room for a lunch of prepared on site soups and salads and fantasitic sweets. Have tea time with your choice of numerous kinds and blends of teas and... More

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.
