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.

I recently took my mother out to the plantation for the tour and lunch iin the tea room. We had a lovely guide who actually used to live in the house. She was very friendly and thourough and was able to answer all of our questions. She took us down to the river and discussed a lot of the history of the house.

We then went into the tea room and had a Southern Tea. The server was very friendly, the tea and the food was wonderful. Over all, we had a wonderful day and would highly recommend this to anyone that likes history and enjoys beautiful views.

There is nothing to do at this location except tour the house. It is a small house and our guide was very knowledgeable but in my opinion not worth the cost. The intro video is informative, when you can hear it over the noise from the Tea Room and the kitchen. Not an ideal setup for this. The Tea Room is nice but we did not eat so I will not comment on the service there. If we would have had our children, and paid for their admission, I would have been very upset with what is received for the value. There are other plantations in the area that offer far more for the money.
