  • I actually did my homework before choosing Hopsewee as our "plantation" stop in South Carolina. It was a very good tour and exactly what I expected of a 1700's plantation. I read other reviews about not getting much information about the slaves. I guess I'm a proponent of asking questions. We asked about why the house was spared Sherman's burning spree and that led to a great conversation about the slaves on the property, the other plantations Lynch owned. The tour guide had a wealth of information and was very willing to talk about any topic that was brought up by those on the tour. Come armed with questions and you won't be disappointed.
  • Well preserved home. Excellent tour guide with high knowledge of the local history. Better visit than anticipated!
  • One of the highlights of our trip to South Carolina! We stopped here while driving from Myrtle Beach to Charleston. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the visit was. We were hungry for lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find a tea room that served tea and lunch. Food was good. We then took a tour which is given by a lady that has known the property all her life, lived there from age 13 to 19. This is well worth the visit, the property is beautiful and the owners are awesome.
  • Beautiful venue for my buddy's wedding. Really nice place to see in general, as well.
