We toured Hopsewee Plantation in December and loved it! The tour was very informational and the guide is very knowledgeable and passionate about the history. We learned some neat stuff! At the end we wanted to experience the tea room but found they had just closed. The owner and staff actually reopened for us and we had a delightful experience... More

The tour of Hopsewee Plantation was chock full of history and artifacts, without being too long. The tea and lunch that followed (separate reservation) was simply delightful. As a strictly gluten-free diner, I was impressed with the variety of options and how well labelled the menu was - what a treat! You have to try the House Blend of tea;... More

I think every American should visit the Hopsewee Plantation in order to dispel the the notion that all Southern Plantations were like those in Mississippi and Alabama. It was interesting to learn about the contributions from African Americans to the technology needed to grow rice in America. We strongly recommend a tour of the Hopsewee Plantation

Beautiful Scenery, Tea room a little pricey, but worth it-food was deceptively filling! Very delicious meals served there! Weather was beautiful!

I took my Mother-in-law here to do an afternoon tea with the full service of finger sandwiches, scones and sweet treats. The variety and quality of the tea was perfect. The atmosphere is beautiful! I am looking forward to going back for a tour. Highly recommend a visit here.

The owners graciously open their historic home to visitors for a peak into life in the 1700's. The house has been preserved in it's antebellum state with the exception of the upgrades of central heat and air, plumbing and electricity and continues to be a home for the owners. The tea room is fabulous with typical low country foods that... More

Beautiful historic home with an adorable tea room. Excellent for lunch and/or a birthday celebration! The home is on the banks of the North Santee River and has been standing for hundreds of years.

Interesting rice plantation, built in 1740, and most of the wood is still original and in good shape. The tour guide was very knowledgable, and explained that the couple that owns the house has allowed people to tour the house while they are living there daily. Thomas Lynch jr. who signed the Declaration of Independence, was born here; find out... More

We brought family to Hopsewee Plantation for a tour last week (December 7th). I reserved our tour slot and paid $5. per person to guarantee we'd have a table for lunch. We arrived shortly before our tour time to find no other cars at the plantation. I was greeted by name (there were no other tour guests but the four... More
