View current planned activities for The Lodge Alley Inn™
Take a step back in time at The Lodge Alley Inn. A collection of 18th century warehouses, the buildings have been restored to preserve their history while also providing modern-day comforts and conveniences.
This Charleston landmark reflects its rich European heritage with its original pine floors and red brick walls, thick Oriental carpets, period reproductions and intimate parlors with fireplaces. The Victorian-style suites blend old-world charm in the common living areas with modern kitchens and baths.
The Lodge Alley Inn is conveniently located in the heart of charming downtown Charleston. Once our valet parks your car, let our concierge arrange a historic walking tour or a horse-drawn carriage to take you around town.
After sightseeing, return to the Inn for complimentary fresh-baked cookies and tea. For a four-star meal and an extensive wine selection, dine at the neighboring High Cotton restaurant, a winner of Wine Spectator’s 2003 Award of Excellence.
After dinner, take a leisurely stroll through the courtyard or chat by the fountain. Upon returning to your room, relax in your whirlpool tub, ascend a spiral staircase to a cozy loft, or climb into a four-poster bed. Each villa has unique offerings.
