The young history interpreter, Sean, made our day. We spent a day and a half touring the gardens, buildings and house museum and were delighted even though it rained thanks to Sean and his knowledge and talents (ask him to play is piccalo and penny whistle). The restaurant food and service was very good. We'll return when more plants are in bloom. (Apr/May)

Thank you for your review. It is this kind of personal interaction between guests and interpreters that Middleton Place thrives upon. FYI: camellias bloom Dec.-March, azaleas March-May. Consult our bloom list online for the annual flowerings.

We visited The Middleton Place Plantation with our family (7 grown-ups and a 4 1/2 year old granddaughter) and enjoyed it very much!. Our tour guide of the remaining original Middleton House was very knowledgeable. There was authentic period furniture, lots of historical items.
For small children, there are many animals on the grounds including free roaming sheep, peacocks, guinea fowls,

Glad our tickets came with our stay at the Inn. My elderly mother on her walker managed about a third of the grounds before we gave up. They do not have any electric wheelchairs or ways for a person unable to walk easily to get around the grounds and much of the site was too far for her to walk. She was also not allowed in the museum - and the docent did not speak to her when we started to enter - said "she can't come in with that walker" to me as though it was my mother's ears or mind that were impaired and not her legs. That was really offensive.
There was not way to access the working parts of the museum without walking at least another quarter mile - there is a driveway to the restaurant that even handicapped guests are not allowed to use during museum hours, making it out of reach. They have horse drawn carriages, but one must climb up into them - again not accessible - and do not have motorized wheelchairs or even a golf cart to take a handicapped person to the more distant parts. Had a motorized wheelchair been available to rent, we certainly would have.
Middleton Place needs to consider our aging population a little more.

Thank you for your review. Middleton Place is all about history preserved to the colonial and Antebellum period. You will not find elevators, scooters, or paved paths in the Gardens. We offer complimentary non-motorized wheelchairs for public use, and maps with suggested tours designed for wheelchairs, which can be obtained at the Visitors Center. Management has reviewed the situation this guest encountered at the House Museum. Walkers are indeed allowed inside the House Museum. In this case, the volunteer on duty went to consult a staff member on the matter, and when they returned, the guest had left. The National Historic Landmark covers more than 110 acres, and we ensure visitors are able to see as much of that as possible. A complimentary electric cart may be requested at the Visitors Center for transportation to the restaurant and Plantation Stableyards.

The place is a must to see when in Charleston.If you want to understand the spirit of South, the spirit of "Gone with the wind" times,visit this place. It has a wonderful, calm and charming atmosphere. I understood what South was fighting for in the war. Beautiful landscapes and gardens were combined with well-organized mechanizm, producing all necessary things.
