Overview
More
Middleton Place is an 18th century rice plantation and National Historic Landmark comprising 65 acres of America's oldest landscaped Gardens, the Middleton Place House Museum and the Plantation Stableyards. The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Mill Pond in the spring.

I could've passed on the house tour, but there's so much more to this place! The gardens are exquisite and such a pleasure to meander. Then you can take an educational tour of the working animals on the property and learn how the Middletons lived...More

Enjoyed touring the house, stables and the gardens. Be prepared for a great deal of walking. Guides are knowledgeable. The southern Buffet lunch was good and fast. Spent 5 hours here and could have spent longer.

Pro: Beautiful gardens; Renovated pavilion for reception; Dinner for a big crowd was both timely and fresh. Con: Indifferent management who leaves mid-event with predictable service drop-off and uncleared tables, etc; Wedding site not close to pavilion, yet management has just one crummy golf cart...More
