The remaining portion of the Historic Bostick Plantation, an avenue of oaks leads you to a spacious lodge surrounded by the beauty of Lowcountry South Carolina landscapes, pastures, cypress ponds, pine and hardwood forests.
“Visiting Bostick Plantation allows you to escape back in time to the glorious era of large Southern Plantations, easy living, and spectacular hunting. Bostick Plantation began more than 200 years ago with a Land Grant from King George III of more than 70,000 acres. The Bostick family is one of fewer than 200 families who still hold title to an original Royal Land Grant.
The original Plantation House was burned on January 16, 1865, by Henry W. Slocum, Commander of the 14th Army Corps under the command of General William T. Sherman as he marched through the area on his way to the coast. Also, many of the other Bostick family homes were destroyed by General Sherman’s troops. With so many of the families being “burned out,” many of them could not afford to pay their taxes and much of the family property was lost. Also, as the property has been passed down through the generations, much of it has been sold off to non-family members.
The Bostick family enjoyed more than 200 years of private hunting reserved exclusively for family and closest friends on this highly productive game land. With large numbers of ponds and lakes with cover and food, the swamps thrived with plenty of wild game of all kinds. Then, in 1977, Joe Bostick experimented with entertaining a very limited number of hunters on the private Plantation. The success was so great that Joe decided to open the Plantation to the public. It didn’t take long for word to get out and we had to expand our operation.
We built Bostick Plantation’s Executive’s Lodge in 1980 in order to meet the growing demands of our hunting operation and to enable us to offer our guests more upscale accommodations during their stay with us. The Executive Lodge comfortably holds hunters in an elegant atmosphere where you aren’t afraid to put up your feet after a memorable hunt. Our Executive Lodge is the perfect place for you to entertain those most important clients or key personnel. “
