Mullet Hall Equestrian Center
Among the most unique event venues in the Charleston area, the 40-acre Mullet Hall Equestrian Center on Johns Island is nestled in an exquisite landscape of pristine meadows, farm fields, and equestrian barns and show rings, all flanked by southern pines, magnolias, and moss-draped oaks. Visitors may find themselves roaming the grassy meadows alongside deer, wild turkeys, and other wildlife as they explore a corner of the Lowcountry largely unknown even to locals. This outdoor setting can accommodate large groups, yet is intimate enough to host small groups. A site tour is recommended to view all aspects of this special property.

Set against the backdrop of a restored antebellum plantation house, the tree-lined estate offers a beautiful and historic setting for multiple-sized groups. Prices vary based on season.
