About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

A wonderful townhouse 'Johnson's Pied-a'- terre' in the heart of the Historic French Quarter District. Tucked away in the courtyard of the historic ''Lodge Alley Inn '' with a fountain and gas lights to add to the quaintness of this very special place. This alley connects East bay to State Street.

Relax in your own walled and gated private courtyard, or sit on the balcony and just enjoy the sound of the fountain or flicker of the gas lights. Before walking steps to the finest restaurants Charleston has to offer. Only two blocks from the Old Straw Market and Water Front Park on the harbor. You are right where you need to be in this remarkable location to enjoy all downtown Charleston has to offer.

The townhouse has just been newly furnished and sports fabulous original wide plank heart of pine floors throughout. Two bedrooms upstairs with queen beds, private baths for both. A small balcony from the master bedroom with view of the fountain. New kitchen with top of the line appliances. There is a queen sleep sofa in the living room with use of half bath.

The townhouse works nicely for two couples. Please check out our (video) virtual tour..Located under LINKS TO MORE INFORMATION.

We live and work on Martha's Vineyard, MA

We both would love to spend more time in Charleston, but work gets in the way. We have to pay the mortgage!!! So we thought we would share our special home with you our guests.

We are so lucky to have Carolyn our housekeeper who takes care of the house for us , she keeps it sparkling in between our guests visits.

Every thing was top notch, nothing left out. We were here over Christmas, the kitchen had everything I needed to cook a delicious dinner for my family. We sat outside sipping cocktails, playing games that we brought with us, and snacking on cheese and crackers. Couldn't have been more enjoyable. Would definitely go back.

Perfect Location- Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our selection of Lodge Alley, its amenities and the communications with the owners. The home offers a newly remodeled, updated kitchen with modern appliances- though we ate out most of the time it was nice to have the option. The home is well appointed with nice furnishings, lovely art, beautiful authentic floors... The only reason for not offering 5 stars is because I wish the beds were newer and more comfy. Other than that, I highly recommend Lodge Alley and will consider staying again.

What a town, what a townhome!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had at this perfect townhome for our 3 weeks in Charleston. The ambiance is perfect! We spent much time outside in the patio, cooked several meals in the well-stocked kitchen (I want some of that stuff!) and enjoyed nights in front of the fireplace. We had the pleasure of meeting Sharon and Tom, the owners, briefly upon arrival. They are lovely and very accommodating...even responding to questions about good restaurants. Caroline, their in-town person was very attentive and asked many times that we call on her if we were to need anything-which we did not!

We explored by foot for two weeks and rented a car for one. Everything to see in Charleston is easily reached by walking, checking out restaurant menus and gawking at the beautiful architecture along the way. And what history! We were amazed and learned a great deal. After renting the car, we went to outlying areas (none of which were too far) to see Beaufort (don't miss the river walk!), Savannah (Pink House Restaurant and a carriage tour), and Mt. Pleasant (Graze restaurant for lunch). Don't miss Shem Creek while out Mt. Pleasant way (Water's Edge restaurant-wonderful happy hour!!), Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palm and the Wild Dunes Golf Course, Kiawah Island and the incredibly beautiful Ocean Course. On St. John's Island see the Angel Oak and stop at the Fat Hen restaurant (music outside at night). The Wild Olive restaurant was recommended there, as well. Going that way, we visited Drayton, Boone, Middleton and Magnolia Plantations, as well as the Carolina Tea Plantation.

Get the local Charleston map and see everything! Walk, pedi-cab or take the trolley. Visit the great old houses. The docents are very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the Charleston Museum and the South Carolina Aquarium. Visit the USS Yorktown by boat from Liberty Square.

Restaurants are so good and so many within a few blocks of home!! High Cotton (yummy Expresso Martini, tasty Primetini, good jazz), S.N.O.B (chicken livers, shrimp and grits), Magnolias, Husk (great, great burger in bar in the evening!!), rooftops at Market Pavillion and Vendue, Cypress, Amen Street and, Basil for Thai. Looking and tasting is an adventure in itself. We went to Fulton 5 (Italian-need res) for our last night on Sharon's recommendation. Don't miss it!

I could go on and on. Give yourself a treat-visit Charleston and stay at the Lodge Alley Townhome. You will not regret a minute. Really!

Great Location & Charm

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Lodge Alley Town-home for 3 nights. Great Location...only two blocks from the Market in Charleston and right in the heart of the French Quarter. The home was beautifully appointed...very warm & inviting. We did not do any cooking, however, the kitchen is completely equipped with everything you would need to prepare your meal. There is a wonderful private patio for cocktails, meals or to read a book. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will highly recommend it to our friends, as well as, return for another longer stay.
