America’s Oldest Landscaped Gardens

Sprawling along the banks of the soothing Ashley River, Middleton Place is home to deep historic roots and America’s oldest landscaped gardens. Flawless and visually striking celebrations unfold across the manicured grounds and guests swoon over the 65 acres of sweeping vistas and intimate garden rooms while onsite culinary pros wow with tailored menus and Lowcountry delights.
Middleton Place and The Inn at Middleton Place welcome weddings with unique spaces tailored to your tastes and theme. Invite friends and family to stay at the 55-room inn with wooded views or river views in every room. Kick off the weekend with a Lowcountry welcome dinner in the prestigious restaurant’s Cypress Room and adjoining courtyard. Say I Do among sculpted terraces overlooking the Butterfly Lakes, in a secret garden surrounded by marble statues or under the magical 900-year-old Middleton oak flanked by a fragrant rose garden. Design plush lounge settings around the Inn’s courtyard for a cocktail hour among award-winning architecture before moving into the glowing indoor-outdoor Pavilion reception space. Plan a memorable sunset photo shoot overlooking the city and then snap playful imagery with the property’s adorable sheep and cashmere goats.

The Location


A National Historic Landmark and home to the oldest landscaped gardens in America, Middleton Place is perched along the Ashley River northwest of downtown Charleston.

Things To Do

Charleston is steeped in rich Southern history and culture, dappled with lovingly preserved architecture, a church-spired skyline and lush legendary gardens.
The historic port city is a foodie haven with award-winning chefs serving fresh-caught seafood and delectable Lowcountry comfort dishes. Civil War sites and iconic plantations, Fort Sumter boat tours and horse-drawn carriage rides clacking down cobblestone streets offer a taste of the past while mile after mile of soft white-sand coastline delivers five beautiful beach enclaves, yachting, fishing and acclaimed golf courses. A walk down King Street unveils locally owned and high-end boutiques and the Saturday morning Marion Square farmers market is the place for local produce and artisan crafts.
