Boone Hall is a lovely place to spend the day. It's location makes it very easy to visit if you're in Charleston or Mt. Pleasant. Definitely take the third of the property and the house. The preserved homes of the enslaved workers are amazing. Be sure to catch the Gullah presentation. You won't be disappointed, especially if you're into Lowcountry... More

We went here recently with the family to see the house and grounds. While the house is really pretty and the grounds are extensive, the tours were completely lackluster. We took the house tour and the coach tour around the garden. The house tour consisted of 3/4 rooms, maybe a minute or two in each. The tour guide literally pointed... More

Lovely drive, good story telling by the tour guide. Good value for the charge. It was an eye opener for my children who are constantly diverted by modern amenities

The grounds are beautiful. The tour of the home was really interesting. We enjoyed the tour of the plantation which is still a working plantation with produce that is served nearby in a farmer's market type setting where you may dine in or purchase fresh produce to take home. We couldn't believe the flowers in bloom in February and that... More

I wanted to go to a plantation my entire life. Love all the old movies like north & south (parts of it were filmed here), but I was very disappointed. The website and booklets say the "coach tour" leaves every 15 minutes...but they forget to tell you that the coach bus has to be filled completely before they'll begin. We... More

This is still a working plantation with many of the original buildings still in tact. There is much to learn here for both children and adults. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Plan on staying a couple of hours and bring comfortable shoes so you can walk the grounds.

This was a really enjoyable walk through history. You only get to see the first floor however because family lives in the house still so upstairs is off limits. The Gullah show was top-notch and very entertaining. The gardens that you can walk through were simply beautiful. I wish I would have been able to see the Plantation decorated at... More

We really wanted to see a plantation house, and really made the right choice here. The drive up the Oak Avenue set us up for a lovely visit on a cold, but sunny winters day. The house was lovely inside, and you do only get to see a few rooms but its enough to understand what the rest of the... More

The drive in through the oaks is beautiful and makes you think you're on a southern movie set. Which is interesting because they've filmed movies here including the modern-day Notebook. Loved walking the grounds and especially all of the history amongst the slave quarters! Each building has new information about the life of slaves and the history of our country... More

The approach to then plantation is utterly picturesque. I can only imagine what it would look like in spring/summer. I was disappointed that the tour of the home only included a few rooms, but they were very nicely done-up for Christmas. One building is said to be under renovation, though I so no evidence that they were doing anything with... More
