About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A quaint townhouse - Huntley Lodge is part of an original firehouse dating from 1812 - adjacent to Lodge Alley - a narrow cobblestone alley that connects historic East Bay Street and State Street that is reportedly the site of as many as 50 duels.

Enjoy your own private courtyard (walled and gated). This small private courtyard is adjacent to the large courtyard with gaslights and a large fountain which is part of the Historic Lodge Alley Inn 'home away from home' for many celebrities that visit Charleston - Two blocks from Waterfront Park on the Charleston Harbor - steps away from most of Charleston's premier restaurants, one block from the Old Market, and an easy stroll to The Battery.

The townhouse has original wide plank heart pine floors upstairs and down. Two bedrooms upstairs, one with a queen bed and a king-size bed in the master; both bedrooms have private baths, and master bedroom has a small balcony overlooking the courtyard. There is a queen sleeper sofa downstairs in the main living area facing the gas log fireplace and has access to a half bath. This home is ideal for two couples, or a couple with children.

About Pam Tuttle

Sonny and Dean Huntley , along with Sonny's sister Beth , purchased 'Huntley Lodge' because they love downtown Charleston . The native South Carolinians have visited the area all of their lives and decided to get a piece of history for themselves. They wanted a place to visit with friends and family while having some income to offset the costs. It has worked very well , except they cannot spend nearly as much time there as they would like.Even though Beth lives in the area and Sonny and Dean live in Hilton Head , visiting the property has been limited. They hope to change this in the future and gather for the many fun and interesting things the 'Holy City ' has to offer!

Pam Tuttle purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Pam Tuttle chose Historic Old City

We are in the real estate and interior design business in Charleston and Hilton Head. There is a limited amount of property like 'Huntley Lodge' in the historic French Quarter area of downtown Charleston and we found this opportunity irresistable. The location is second to can park your car and never get back in it if shopping in a multitude of stores and dining in first class restaurants is your goal. The ambiance and history is palpable !

What makes this townhome unique

You can enjoy a vast array of art galleries, antique shops and historic venues within a few minutes of your private , gated courtyard and the luxury of the townhome itself is evident from the moment you step inside. Flickering gaslight lanterns and the centerpiece water fountain add a special feel to the larger gated courtyard available when more space is desired.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at Huntley Lodge several times & it just keeps getting better! The location is perfect & the condo has so much Southern charm...stylishly appointed,. extremely welcoming & comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen, TV's in living room & both bedrooms, & private courtyard are all conveniences that enhance the stay! Always feel like it's home away from home!

Great location and homey

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Charleston, but it was very cold outside. It was nice to have a warm and comfortable place to stay. The location is convenient and there was no need to drive anywhere.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Our two grown daughters joined my wife and me for this stay and we all agreed it was a wonderful property. Beds were comfortable and everything was very clean and well kept.

Note to potential renters:

Even though we received directions to get to this VRBO unit, rather than following them I simply put the address in my phone.

We ended driving around for a while as I did not enter the address correctly. Be careful to enter 46 State street, then look for unit E.

What a perfect spot! Tastefully decorated, comfortable in every respect. The location to shopping, restaurants, and Waterfront Park couldn't be beat. This is a perfect spot to make your homebase for a wonderful trip to Historic Charleston! The owners are very easy to work with and very accommodating. They helped make our girls weekend perfect!
