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 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.
SHARON JOHNSON purchased this townhome in 2007
Charleston is such a wonderful small city......Charming people, History, Great Restaurants and always something fun going on in the city year round.
Location,Location,Location..... its so close to some of the very best restaurants in the city. We walk to everything!
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!
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.
Everything was perfect. This is a lovely home in a great location. We could walk to everything we need. Would definitely stay here again.
We truly enjoyed this home. It had all the amenities anyone could need. The location could not have been better. We were able to walk almost everywhere. The only downside was outside noise, but that is part of living in the middle of the action.
Everything about this property was perfect. It truly felt like a "home away from home." Beautifully furnished, with a kitchen that provided all the things you would ever need; and a quiet, attractive location just steps away from restaurants and shopping and the gorgeous historic homes. We will return!
We so enjoyed stating in your lovely home. The location was perfect, the courtyard was a delight, it was very clean and comfortable. The decor was so to our taste. Wish we had stayed longer. We will definitely try to come back. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
