Boone Hall Plantation
In the early 18th century, cotton plantations were enormously profitable and a giant of Charleston's lowcountry cotton farming was this stunningly beautiful estate. Boone Hall is one of the oldest working, living plantations. Instead of cotton, now they produce peaches, strawberries, tomatoes and pumpkins. During certain seasons guests are allowed to pick their own food. Boone Hall is an understandably popular setting for weddings, and has been featured in several movies. The world-famous Avenue of Oaks and the plantation house alone make this a worthwhile tour. Open all year except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Call ahead for varying dates.
RIP OFF! Do Not Recommend!! Took my family to the pumkin patch today, What a RIP OFF! $10.00 per head!! For what??? Even my 3 year old grandson had to pay $10.00!!! 2 jump castles, 1 was closed for bees! A few goats, bunnies, and a few other lame play areas..Hay ride was ok....Should have went to the park for FREE!! I Will never go back and suggest you stay away as well!
I took my mother on a Plantation tour between Charleston and Savannah and this was by far our favorite. First you have the live oak drive up to the plantation. We drove past some small brick structures on the left only later to find out that they were slave’s quarters that were built from second hand bricks that were sitting wasting on the property. The plantation owners weren’t being generous by building these houses. They use the houses to teach the slaves masonry so they could hire them out. This is still a working plantation and everything is part of the admission. We took the tram for a ride through the property and toured the house and the slave quarters. They have done a fantastic job showing the history of the property and what life was like during the early 1800s. One of the best parts was the Gullah presentation. This is a must see. It is a single women talking about the Gullah tradition and dialect. It’s funny, interesting, and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend it to anyone from the young to the old and everyone in between. If you love American history this place is filled with it, and if you don’t, you will be amazing at how much you will become interested.
I visited this plantation back in 2005. It was remarkable. The restaraunt and gift shop were then open. The food was absolutely amazing. We took the guided tour through the house, which was 3 rooms. But, due to people living in the home. We toured the grounds as a family and enjoyed our experience there 100%. I would go back and visit again.
So much for so little money. This place was gorgeous. Look for discount coupons at Charleston Visitors Center. Great learning experience for children and adults. Tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Word of caution..bring some OFF or bug repellent and dress appropriately for weather (I didn't)
I'm wondering if the positive posters went to the same place I did. Total rip off. Hidden fees after you pay and I doubt the authenticity of the slave quarters. The trees were nice but the main attraction is the mansion. You see 3 rooms and a hallway. The guide is very disingenuous never mentioning any dates. Reason; the house was built in 1936 My house in Jersey is older !!! If anyone goes, please ask the guide (when she meets the group at the front door) about the date. Watch her flubber bluster. That's the best experience at BOOne.
The price of admission IS average, however, I have been to MANY other plantions in several other states and you get to see much more of the house. This was very dissapointing, only three rooms in a house that is younger than what most of us grew up in! I think it is false advertising that they only tell you when the house was built AFTER you paid to see this "authentic" plantation home. I would spend my money elsewhere!
I loved it! Beautiful piece of history. The Gullah Theater is a must-see event. Even though the house was built in 1935, it incorporates the spirit of the Southern Plantation. They carefully used materials from the former structures and from the brickyard that had been there before.
Yes, it's a little pricey, but I'd do it again. Disappointing that the gin house is not restored.
Very expensive to see 3 rooms and listen to self guided tour of grounds that were in state of repair, restaurant and shop not open, house not original and in need of upkeep. Try for another plantation and pass this one up.
