One admission provides a main house tour, an open motor coach tour of the plantation grounds, and access to the old slave quarters. It was all interesting, and the only problem was the coach driver parked next to a bus that had its very noisy engine idling for the last 10 minutes of his spiel, so we couldn't hear it... More

Be sure to see the Gullah presentation. The woman who did the presentation was amazing and did a great job explaining the Gullah history and life. The avenue of live oaks is beautiful.

The only good thing aboiut this place is the Slave Huts which do have some rich history, and one has a live presentation of a slave descendant. That was excellent. The rest is a terrible waste, and if you aren't driving, add about $100 to the cost to get there and back to the city. The 'farm tour' was a... More

The whole plantation is beautiful. The house, the oak lined entry, the gardens, etc. There are several preserved slave houses on the plantation each with a different theme to the information that they display in a museum type set up. There is an awesome presentation about the Gullah culture and way of life. You can wander through the gardens, take... More

I enjoyed the house tour, as it was narrated by an informed guide in period guard. The slave quarters gave great insight into life for African Americans during the 1700's and 1800's. The grounds and gardens were quite beautiful and well kept. My only disappointment was that the bus tour was not running the day we visited due to the... More

We visited this plantation during our weekend in Charleston. We were disappointed in what was available for the cost of admission. $20.00 to view 4 rooms of the house and grounds was costly, in my opinion. We went to the Butterfly Café, only to discover there is no café. It isn't even a good "snack bar". The history of the... More

The tour of the main house was interesting but it was very rushed. Bob was a great guide but the gardeners were blowing the leaves in the gardens while we were trying to listen to him. The Gullah presentation was the best part, very moving!

My wife and I went here while on a weekend getaway to Charleston, SC. The plantation was full of such great history. We were able to look at some of the houses that were previously used for slaves. We also toured the large house on the property. The plantation property is beautiful and we were able to take some great... More

I have wanted to see this house since I saw North and South mini-series . I am a movie / history buff. I loved the drive up to the house on the beautiful Avenue of Oaks . The house was beautiful and tour guide great. Only see part of house because owners actually live there. Gardens are beautiful . The... More
