“Home to incredible gardens, an inn, and restaurant”
Middleton Place is an 18th century rice plantation and National Historic Landmark comprising 65 acres of America's oldest landscaped Gardens, the Middleton Place House Museum and the Plantation Stableyards. The Gardens reflect the elegant symmetry of 17th century European design. Sculpted terraces, parterres, and reflection pools inhabited by swans are highlights of their intricate design. Rare camellias bloom in the winter, while vibrant azaleas blanket the hillside above the Mill Pond in the spring.
Highly recommend staying overnight here at the Middleton Inn! Best bang for your buck plus a really unique experience of staying on the grounds of an historical plantation. Rates are cheaper than many hotels in the city plus it include price of admission and tours for your family. Unique rooms with inclusive wine (and snacks for the kids) reception in the evening and breakfast. We enjoyed having a 'free pass' to walk around the gardens and plantation grounds before and after hours- so zero crowds early in the morning and in the evenings. Kids loved playing in the terraced garden and walking along the water looking for gators- plenty to see!
One of the most fantastic landscaped gardens in the US. If you're in the Charleston area, and into gardening, or just want a pastoral day away from it all, this should be your day right here.
This place is America's oldest landscaped garden dating all the way back to 1741. I'd skip the tour and meander around the grounds yourself.
