Take a step back in time with a stay at The Lodge Alley Inn in the heart of old Charleston, the cultural capital of the South, where layers of history await your discovery. The resort is actually a collection of 18th century warehouses that have been lovingly restored to preserve their history while also including visitors with all the modern-day amenities and comforts. Accommodations at the resort include appealing studios, bigger 1-bedroom suites and lofts for up to 4 visitors, and enormous 2 bedroom town homes that can sleep up to 6 visitors.
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 magic in the common living areas with a boutique accommodations experience.
The Lodge Alley Inn is comfortably located just steps from Charleston Harbor, the Market and Rainbow Row. Once the 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 new-baked cookies and sherry. For a four-star meal and an comprehensive wine selection, dine at the neighboring High Cotton restaurant, a winner of Wine Spectatorâ€™s Award of Excellence since 2003.
After dinner, take a laid-back walk around the historic district or just relax in the courtyard and chat by the fountain. Upon returning to your room, relax in the ambience of Charlestonâ€™s long history, ascend a spiral staircase to a calming loft, or climb into a four-poster bed

During your Stay
- Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any problems soon after you arrive. We also suggest immediately phoning the rental home manager with a report of any problems, together with your request for any needed repairs.
- When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, condo access, swimming pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the rental home manager immediately. A quick phone call avoids many complications.
- Remember to be a good neighbor. Residents most likely live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a vacation substantially more relaxing.
- Ask a local. Residents are a terrific source of suggestions.
- Make sure you protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation rental secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.
- Double-check every space of the vacation property to make sure that you've packed all possessions.
- Please make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and look for property damage. If you can, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
- Did you love your rental? Just about all vacation rental management companies and vacation rental websites make it easy for travellers to provide feedback. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was terrific, they will likely appreciate your praise. If anything was disagreeable and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the property was not as described, you may want to make it a point as part of your review.
