This was my second trip and did not disappoint. My friends and I loved it. Lunch in the Tea Room was wonderful. We have already planned a return lunch trip soon

We shared desserts and enjoyed the Hopswee's own Tea . The hummingbird cake was amazing. The tour was so informative and the tour gulde was great at providing all details about the... More

We visited this remarkably well preserved plantation home of Thomas Lynch Jr one of the 4 signers of the Declaration of Independence from South Carolina. The home was built circa 1735-1740 from black cypress wood. Incredibly the exterior siding is entirely original with 80% of the blown glass windows still in their frames! The interior crown molding was intricately carved... More

We had a wonderful educational tour of the plantation home. We also took time to watch one other educational videos that are offered at the plantation as well. We learned a lot and had a guide who answered all of our questions and added so much to the tour. After the tour we had lunch at the Tea Room. Afterwards... More

I absolutely love the tea room! I've been there about a half dozen times. It's quite a drive from Goose Creek, but it's well worth the trip. The food is fresh, beautifully presented, and delicious.

We had a few hours to spare and decided to visit the Hopsewee Plantation. We were so glad we did. What a wonderful example of the plantations of the Carolina delta. We had a wonderful, knowledgeable guide and enjoyed a tasty desert at the Tea Room after. Highly recommended if you love history.

This is the second time I have taken lady friends to see this gem of the south. We had a delightful tour by a lovely African American of Gullah decent. Oh boy, she was exceptional! We loved her! Please book the tea room for lunch afterwards. We all tried various dishes and everything was delicious and you will not go... More

A friend of mine was visiting and we took a tour of Hopsewee and then arranged to have lunch at the little restaurant on the property. The home is not what I think of as a plantation (Tara in Gone With the Wind) but in original condition (minus a few important updates). The original structure has not been added to... More
