As I touched on in that last blog, there are some classic landmarks you really should check out while staying in one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals.  The Yorktown at Patriots Point is one of them. Another is Boone Hall Plantation. Those of you who are regulars at our Isle of Palms vacation rentals or other beach house rentals Charleston SC probably already know about Boone Hall. It’s been the site of several momentously romantic things.  These include the filming of key scenes in The Notebook, as well as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ real-life wedding.  Martha Stewart was their wedding planner.  Not too shabby! Boone Hall is a must-see for visitors to Charleston.  It’s been called the most photographed plantation in America, known for its avenue of live oak trees leading to the main house.   Boone Hall is located up Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant just over the Isle of Palms Connector from your luxury house on Isle of Palms.  It’s a perfect day trip from your Charleston beach house.  Actually, it’s not far from all our SC vacation rentals, including Folly Beach rentals Charleston.
