We loved Boone Hall! My friend and I visited Charleston in March. Boone Hall was the highlight of our trip. What an amazing place! The Avenue of Oaks is so impressive. The house, although not that old, is what you would expect for a southern plantation home. Each of the brick slave cabins had a lot of historical information inside... More

The best part of the visit to Boone Plantation were the guides. They were knowledgeable and fun, whether talking about the history of agriculture or of slavery at the plantation. The plantation is much photographed for its alley of ancient oaks, but the real stars are the slave cabins in excellent condition. The mansion is from 1936, and the grounds... More

Sometimes the place is enough, and sometimes the guide makes the tour. Bob O. did that. House is interesting inside but is a 20th century imagination on an 18th century site. Don't expect the high style antiques found in some Charleston tour homes. This is a great location however with an interesting house, slave buildings, and great allee of live... More

Great grounds and slave cabins compel a visitor to think. Very strong exhibit. However, the house is less than satisfactory. 1935? Really? What I loved about the house tour - they educated us that the style of homes on plantations were not grand style colonials, but usually very standard sized "basic" colonials. Hollywood has educated us to think big columns... More

Seriously... The beautiful "plantation" home you see in photos -- the highlight of the entire tour -- was built in 1936!!!! Few realize this -- Unless they read VERY carefully before paying $20 each (a little less for kids... plus a $2 discount if you have AAA.) There are some very redeeming qualities to the place... The gorgeous oak trees... More

$20 for admission to the grounds and all the buildings. It's a better deal than Middleton or Magnolia plantations. There's a house tour every 30 minutes. If your guide, encourages you to leave early to catch the Gullah presentation, take their advice. The Gullah culture presentation was greatly informative and interesting. It helped you get a deeper feel for the... More

Reserve at list four hours to visite it.They offer 4 parts of visitation. You just pay the general admission of 20 dollars. The distance from Charleston is about 10 miles.

When spending a few days in Charleston, a visit to the Boone Hall Plantation was worth the experience. The old oak trees that line the road are impressive, the gardens are beautiful, the slave houses are insightful, and the Gullah Culture explanation is informative. Plan on a lovely morning walking through the plantation house, slave houses, gardens, and grounds.
