A quaint townhouse - Huntley Lodge is part of an original firehouse dating from 1812 - adjacent to Lodge Alley - a narrow cobblestone alley that connects historic East Bay Street and State Street that is reportedly the site of as many as 50 duels.
Enjoy your own private courtyard (walled and gated). This small private courtyard is adjacent to the large courtyard with gaslights and a large fountain which is part of the Historic Lodge Alley Inn 'home away from home' for many celebrities that visit Charleston - Two blocks from Waterfront Park on the Charleston Harbor - steps away from most of Charleston's premier restaurants, one block from the Old Market, and an easy stroll to The Battery.
The townhouse has original wide plank heart pine floors upstairs and down. Two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and a king-size bed in the master; both bedrooms have private baths, and master bedroom has a small balcony overlooking the courtyard. There is a queen sleeper sofa downstairs in the main living area facing the gas log fireplace and has access to a half bath. This home is ideal for two couples, or a couple with children.
Sonny and Dean Huntley , along with Sonny's sister Beth , purchased 'Huntley Lodge' because they love downtown Charleston . The native South Carolinians have visited the area all of their lives and decided to get a piece of history for themselves. They wanted a place to visit with friends and family while having some income to offset the costs. It has worked very well , except they cannot spend nearly as much time there as they would like.Even though Beth lives in the area and Sonny and Dean live in Hilton Head , visiting the property has been limited. They hope to change this in the future and gather for the many fun and interesting things the 'Holy City ' has to offer!
The Owner purchased this townhome in 2004
We are in the real estate and interior design business in Charleston and Hilton Head. There is a limited amount of property like 'Huntley Lodge' in the historic French Quarter area of downtown Charleston and we found this opportunity irresistable. The location is second to none...you can park your car and never get back in it if shopping in a multitude of stores and dining in first class restaurants is your goal. The ambiance and history is palpable !
You can enjoy a vast array of art galleries, antique shops and historic venues within a few minutes of your private , gated courtyard and the luxury of the townhome itself is evident from the moment you step inside. Flickering gaslight lanterns and the centerpiece water fountain add a special feel to the larger gated courtyard available when more space is desired.
Huntley Lodge was perfect for our 5 day stay. With 2 adults and 2 teenagers there was plenty of room and the location just off of East Bay simply can't be beat. We enjoyed the private courtyard before heading out to dinners. All in all, the house was very comfortable and we would definitely rent again.
We spent two nights here for a wedding and were very pleased! The unit was very clean and comfortable, and the location was incredible. We were able to walk to everywhere we needed to be within a few minutes.
LOVED staying at Huntley Lodge! This was our fourth trip to Charleston but the first trip for my best friend and her husband who stayed with us. Huntley Lodge is absolutely perfect for accommodating two couples. The townhome is beautifully decorated, and stocked with every convenience for a comfortable stay. We spent a lot of time out on the charming private courtyard enjoying the beautiful weather. Being able to walk to restaurants, bars, market, galleries, the Battery and shopping was a plus. This was my first time ever booking with VRBO and Pam, the property manager, was quick to respond to my questions. Huntley Lodge is now our "go to" place to stay in Charleston! Can't wait to go back!!
The only bad thing about Huntley Lodge is that we had to leave it! Our party of 4 had a terrific time visiting Charleston and staying in such a perfect townhouse added to our joy. Talk about location...we walked everywhere. In less than a minute walk, we dined at High Cotton, Amen St, Magnolia's and Slightly North of Broad. It was 2 blocks to the Battery and the straw market. Harris Teeter grocery was an easy stroll to pick up breakfast items. The townhouse had everything we needed...kitchen was sufficiently stocked, beds were comfy and every room was very clean. Our favorite part was the charming courtyard outside our gate...we would sit under the trees at an umbrella table and have our wine happy hour before dinner while listening to the water flow at the nearby fountain. After dark, the fountain would be lit to add to the ambiance. The concierge in the lobby of the Lodge Alley Inn was very helpful by providing us with maps, tourist spot information and even making reservations for us. Last compliment needs to go to Pam, the property manager...what a pleasure to talk to and we were so grateful for the free street parking passes. We will definitely stay at Huntley Lodge again. Don't miss this gem on your next trip to the Holy City!
The home is truly adorable in its southern traditional charm. The beds are very comfortable. Our girls trip was made infinitely better by these accommodations. We will definitely be back. Pam was so helpful. Thank you for everything.
We stayed 5 nights at this lovely home with our 2 little boys. It was perfect for our family. I loved the fact that it was so close to everything. Well within walking distance to the bay, White Point Gardens, the historic homes, the market, churches, shopping and restaurants. The home has a fenced courtyard so the boys could play outside and I didn't have to worry about them running off. The amenities and hospitality of Pam put this place over the top. We come to Charleston every other year and will stay at this place from now on.
