Overview
More
Hopsewee Plantation is an original lowcountry rice plantation on the North Santee Rive built between 1735 and 1740. Birthplace of Thomas Lynch Jr., Hopsewee is one of just 12 remaining birthplaces of Signers of the Declaration of Independence. The home has not been modified from its original design and is furnished with 18th and 19th century antiques. Two original slave cabins remain on the property. The guided tour explores the history of the Patriots and Planters who lived at Hopsewee while you explore the architectural features of the house from Attic to Cellar. Enjoy the hour long tour or just come for lunch in The River Oak Cottage Tearoom with Lowcountry favorites such as Shrimp and Grits, Pulled Pork, Soups and Sandwiches and our Southern Tea service modeled after a British Afternoon Tea.

We took a group of 45 to Hopsewee. We took the tour of the plantation and the grounds. We then had a wonderful salad plate luncheon in the tea room. Great excursion! Everyone gave them an excellent rating!

Go slow and enjoy the grounds as well as the house. Definitely dine in the tea room. Loved it. Will definitely come again.

It was a magical day, nice weather, just enough people and activity to make it extremely enjoyable. Loved hearing "He Leadeth Me" on the dulcimer, impromptu. Food was delicious and well presented. The tour guide was lovely and knowledgeable. She graciously allowed several participants the...More

It's a wonderful setting about mid-point between Georgetown and McClellanville on US 17. Our first two visits were outstanding and I rated them five stars. We expected the same great experience when we treated our son and his friends to lunch over the Thanksgiving weekend....More

Sad to say our visit was underwhelming. To start, the establishment now requires you to pay a small fee for a reservation....hummmm, guess they are having trouble with "no show" reservations. Second, the hostess made very little effort to greet us, but we were promptly...More

Food is deliciously southern and staff is pleasant and helpful! Live oak trees and the Plantation is like stepping back in time and so much great history.
