Hopsewee Plantation was built between 1735 and 1740 by Thomas Lynch I.  The birthplace of Thomas Lynch Jr., South Carolina Signer of the Declaration of Independence, this original rice plantation house remains much the same as when it was built 40 years before the Revolutionary War.  A South Carolina National Historic Landmark, Hopsewee is a preservation and has always been long cherished by its owners.  In fact, its only been owned by five families, despite being over 275 years old.
Although still a private residence, guests are invited to enjoy a guided tour of the plantation house from attic to cellar as well as the plantation grounds.  Tour guides not only share the history of the Patriots and Planters who lived at Hopsewee but also the story of the slaves who lived and worked on the rice plantations of the area.  In addition to touring the property, guests can also just stop by to enjoy lunch or a Full Southern Tea in the River Oak Cottage Tea Room and enjoy the natural beauty of the grounds
"My husband and I always take a ride to Hopsewee Plantation when we visit Myrtle Beach and we have never been disappointed. Trees dripping in Spanish moss line the gravel drive to the tea house. We like to sit outside on the back porch in rocking chairs facing the river and plantation house. The Southern hospitality is truly genuine here and the food is simply wonderful. They make a lot of the jams on site and believe me when I tell you, you can't go wrong with the Full Southern Tea and the seafood dish. Hopsewee is a must on your list when visiting Myrtle Beach/Charleston.  ~Visited September 2011.

A secret gem

I've been to all the big plantations and I loved this tour. I learned new things. The property is quiet and beautiful. The house is all original having survived the war. It's lived in and still you can tour the whole house. Tge tea room is inviting and relaxing . The food is good. The staff very friendly. The size of the property requires no significant walking from the parking lot to the house or tea room.

If you want to visit a plantation that is unspoiled then this is your place. You won't need to look any further as you will be disappointed with others after you visit Hopsewee. We were greeted by a sweet staff and the husband and wife who work there were the nicest and felt like family. The wife grew up on the plantation. Though we did not eat at the tearoom it appeared very quaint and inviting.
