The gardens are beautiful during peak season starting -April to August. There is wildlife on the property for young children to have a break while on taking the tour. The boat ride is a must - the gentleman was very knowledgeable about History - which made it a good time -about 35 mins.Bathrooms were near by and very clean . What reviews don’t say is it’s about 45 min ride each way from downtown Charleston ( we stayed at the Dewberry Hotel)

We went here to see the plantation house and slave quarters. We thought it important to show our son how the slaves lived during that period. We took a short tour to the slave quarters and our tour guide was informative and honest. The plantation house was beautiful but the most impressive was the little zoo. The animals were friendly and even the peacocks ate out of your hand. It was January so the gardens were dreary. Keep that in mind when going in the winter.

We spent several hours at the plantation. Large parking lot, close to the ticket office. Separate tickets are required for different activities - we went on the Nature Tour (tram-like one hour tour) and a shorter House Tour. Beforehand we took a walk around the beautiful gardens ( enjoyable even in January). Both tour guides were absolutely fabulous - imparting detailed knowledge about their respective areas. Gift Shop was unfortunately closed for inventory - but the entire plantation had so many things to see and do that we easily spent 2 1/2 hrs there and could have stayed longer.

Beautiful gardens, well maintained and safe. The home was beautiful to see and the Little zoo at the end was an extra treat.
