The house tour was excellent. Our guide gave us plenty of time and was very infomative about the history of the plantation and area. We followed the tour with lunch which was delicious. Everyone was very gracious.

We took a good friend to Hopsewee Plantation Tea Room for a birthday luncheon. We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was lovely, the service outstanding and the food was excellent. A true touch of the Old South. We will definitely go again.

I was glad I made the short trip from Charleston to visit the plantation. Lunch in the tearoom is very nice. Setting is lovely and tea and teapot display makes it very enticing to try teas. Food was very good, had the chicken rice soup and beet salad. Only downside was that they do not serve the teas in the... More

We are glad you came up to visit - happy to serve in the displayed pots, but don't always - if you don't like your tea, be sure to request something else - or even if you like your tea we are always happy to make other pots. More

A wonderful place to spend a Saturday! The tour was exceptional and the luncheon divine: (: Several of the ladies plan to bring guests for a visit. A big thank you to everyone who made our day special.

Lovely tour. Enjoyed our visit. Must eat lunch or have a proper high tea. No alcohol, but corkage fee. Amazing selection of teas. Definitely worth the drive. Shrimp over ocra pancakes so so good

What a great tour! The plantation is just lovely! Our tour guide was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable! We stayed for lunch at the tea room, which is a must! The appetizers were delicious! I had the tuna salad sandwich, made with yogurt instead of mayo! I loved it! My husband had the sampler, and everything in it was delicious!... More

Took my grandson who is studying SC history to see this plantation built in the 1740's and still intact and tourable along with 2 of the house servants quarters. The owners still live in the house and let people tour all but the master bedroom. Thomas Lynch Jr was the owner and he was one of the signers of the... More

Very friendly staff. Did NOT do the tour of the house, which may have been a mistake. Grounds were small with not much to see. Video helped. Consider a larger plantation to visit if you have limited time. Tea room treats were excellent!!!

Vera was so knowledgeable about making the sweet grass baskets. Her patience was unbelievable with the 12 of us. What fun it was to learn some of the history behind the baskets and to be able to take away a product.

This is a must see destination to appreciate the history of coastal South Carolina. A beautiful plantation home on the original footprint, great tour guide, beautiful grounds along the North Santee River and a delightful cafe for dining. Toured with a group of 5 friends and everyone is still talking about it !
