My girlfriend treated me to a tour and lunch at the plantation. The tour was wonderful and the current residents have done a great job with the house. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was very pleasant. Do be prepared for bug bites, but they do have spray there for you to use. After the tour we enjoyed a... More

Our tour was more meaningful because our tour guide had actually lived in the home as a young girl. Her recollections and memories added to the history of the home. After the tour we had lunch in the tea house, the shrimp and grits were very good. The mosquitoes were swarming everywhere. Although they provide spray in several locations, make... More

We drove an hour from Myrtle Beach to Hopsewee Plantation as it was recommended by our concierge. This is our first visit to this part of the country and we did not know much about the history of South Carolina, nor the differences between the economy of the cotton plantations and the rice and logging plantations of South Carolina. This... More

Food was awesome, service wonderful, and spectacular views. Went with a group of friends and really enjoyed ourselves. Some of us went on the tour and really enjoyed hearing about the history and culture of the plantation. Lunch was reasonable and very delicious! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Choices for lunch were variable and very southern.

While the Hopsewee Plantation Home was a "working farmhouse" according to our tour guide, it was very informative about life on a rice plantation in the Sourth Carolina low country. The grounds overlooking the North Santee River are beautiful, but bring insect repellent - the mosquitoes can be quite pesky! If you are looking for original furnishings, you might be... More

My husband and I enjoyed our outing to the Hopsewee Plantation. We started with a delightful lunch at the tea room (so elegant and the food was delicious). It was very relaxing. Our tour guide was excellent. We not only heard about the history of the plantation but she was filled with knowledge of the rice era. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

The tour was interesting and informative. Our guide Cassie, had even resided at Hopsewee when she was young so she was able to provide a lot of insight into the running of the house. The tea room had delicious food and the staff was very conscientious. Might even do this again if I am in the area.

Tour of Hopsewee Plantation was very informative. Our tour guide was excellent. Next was lunch in tea room. Tomato soup was delicious. Then we took a sweetgrass basket making class. Instructor was Vera Manigault. We had so much fun on such a rainy day in Georgetown, S.C. Highly recommend.

Well maintained, unaltered original rice plantation home & grounds, tea house, original slave quarters, informative guides. Well worth a visit. However, the guide tended to minimize the slave experience, by insisting they were "happy, well cared for, never punished ..." I wish they would have been a bit more realistic about that aspect.
