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.

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.

Great location, nice owners

  • 5 of 5

We rode out Irma with no problems, then had Charlston all to ourselves most of the week. This unit is in the heart of the French District near most of the great restaurants. We walked to eat every evening, walked to the Charlston mbarket, and just thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Charleston Charmer!

  • 5 of 5

The property was elegant yet home like and comfortable. It had wonderful amenities and was well appointed. The hosts have thought of EVERYTHING! It contained everything you could possibly need. The hosts had many tips for first time travelers to Charleston which were much appreciated. It had it's own private patio which is nice to relax in after a day of sightseeing. It is within walking distance of many restaurants, shops and attractions. We had a great time and hope to return to this beautiful property.

Lodge Alley is a Gem in Historic Charleston

  • 5 of 5

Lodge Alley is a thoroughly charming two-story pied-à-terre in Charleston's French Quarter that makes you feel like a resident rather than a tourist. It is centrally located, close to many of the city's more notable attractions, and just a short walk to numerous shops, galleries and, of course, some of the country's finest restaurants. The furnishings provide a sense that one is living the old Southern lifestyle, but with all of the modern conveniences. The upstairs bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, with lots of closet space, and the bathrooms are modern and bright. The kitchen is very well appointed with appliances that blend into the cabinetry. Everything necessary for practicing the culinary arts is available in the well-supplied drawers and cabinets. The only question is whether you'll want to cook, or leave it to the pros in the nearby world-class restaurants. There is also a lovely dining room and comfortable living room. The house is perfect for one or two couples. Anyone looking to have an "old Charleston" experience will find Lodge Alley a true gem. You will leave in anticipation of your next visit to this enchanting city.

Beautiful and Historical, but with all the modern conveniences and SO clean!! Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this wonderful home, and it honestly couldn't have been better!! Super easy booking and detailed and timely communication with the owner; beautifully decorated to reflect the past, yet so modern and functional; completely spic and span, top to bottom; the location was ideal for our quest for exploring both Charleston's rich history and exceptional food. We can't imagine any other home base while in Charleston!!
