Trip Planner: USA / South Carolina / Coastal South Carolina / Mount Pleasant / Boone Hall Plantation
A pre-Civil War plantation that was destroyed, Boone Hall Plantation home was rebuilt in the 1930s. The ground's original slave quarters still stand; many slave houses were used as living quarters for sharecroppers into the 20th century. You can follow Avenue of Oaks--which you may recognize from period films like "North and South"--to the plantation's entrance. Boone Hall Farms is part of the plantation's land and still provides farm-to-table produce to restaurants and residents, making the attraction one of the only working plantations in the United States. No photos or video recordings are allowed on the plantation's grounds.

First stay here, but we would come back for sure! Everyone so friendly and efficient. The shower is awesome, and the bathroom has lots of room. The bed very comfortable. A view of the city outside our window! Close to the market and bay! The Spectator Hotel is what I am reviewing, not Boone Hall. We did visit Boone Hall, however, and it was a beautiful place with much history. Would recommend it to anyone!
We loved our visit! What a beautifully curated facility - staff was so knowledgeable, very friendly, incredibly accommodating! We brought our 1.5 year old who was sorta losing it during the stable tour but the guide told us to make ourselves at home and do what we needed to do to keep him entertained - we were so thankful!! Very cute photo op for him on a saddle on a hay bail too! The former slave homes were all turned into mini-museums and they were so well done. It’s a tough topic and they taught us responsibly and with care. We LOVED the Gullah culture presentation - they had a wonderful storyteller who provided history of the area, the plantation, Gullah culture, and more. Our toddler wanted to escape and he could - We just pulled our stroller up the back so if he wanted to run, he could do so in the grass, and we could still hear the presentation. This was a really thoughtful stop on our list and we’re so glad to have spent time here. (We brought a picnic lunch and ate at a picnic table, 3 hours is about right to see everything).
