My family and I visited Hopsewee plantation during a recent vacation to Myrtle Beach, it is approx an hour drive and easy to get to. Our tour guide was very informational and had actually grown up in the house ( I can't remember her name). The house is still lived in and has some modern amenities (like AC) but still... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The tour, the fabulous lunch, the basket making class, all made for a perfect Mom/Daughter/Granddaughter day!

Our tour guide was very knowledgable, friendly and made the tour fun. The grounds are beautiful and the house had a lot of authentic pieces still in it. We had already eaten so we didn't stay for lunch but the Tea Room looked inviting and I would try it next time. Worth the money.

I visited Hopsewee Plantation with several family members while we were attending family reunion in Myrtle Beach (an hour drive in an air conditioned car was a welcome respite from the humidity and heat!). Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the history of the plantation and rice farming in particular. The contributions of the slaves were honored, but I couldn't... More

The main house was built in the 1700s and is still in pretty good shape. Very intricate crown molding - I would hate to have to clean it. The house is on a bluff overlooking the Santee River and former rice fields. Prior to the tour, there is a brief video presentation in a former slave quarters of the property... More

We were staying in North Myrtle Beach and wanted to do a few side trips. We chose to go to Hopsewee Plantation on a Saturday morning, followed by lunch in the tea room. What a treasure! We had 3 adults and 3 children....we all learned many things on the tour which was given by a very knowledgeable guide. The residence... More

This is a plantation, but I only got the perspective of the white owner. There needs to be a broader perspective, which includes the slave's perspective. How can you talk about plantation life and not include more information about slavery.

Honestly, I was a little (maybe a lot) disappointed in Hopsewee. As a plantation fanatic, I found that this one fell very short. The house has an interesting history, but it is still a private residence and has not been restored to it's original manner. It felt strange to see big screen tv's and coffee makers in an 18th century... More

We stopped by on a day trip and enjoyed the house tour. It takes about an hour to tour the house and grounds. We were there in July and it was very hot but the house is air conditioned. The biggest draw for us was the tea room on the property, where we stopped in for lunch after the tour.

Nice little daytrip when your skin needs a break from the sun. The plantation is privately owned and really interesting. The grounds are beautiful and there is a cute tea room on the grounds. I like that it was a guided tour. Our guide lived in the house as a kid so it was neat hearing from someone that grew... More
