THE LODGE ALLEY INN
195 East Bay Street
Charleston, North Carolina 29401
Built in 1983 in 18th-century Federal style, the Lodge Alley Inn is set in a courtyard bordered by gardens in Charleston's historic district. With a view of Charleston Harbor, it is within strolling distance on cobblestone streets of stately antebellum homes.
Guestrooms as well as public rooms carry out the 18th-century decor. Each room is individually decorated, and many have oriental carpeting, a fireplace, seating area and mini-bar. The penthouse has a full-length balcony, two bedrooms, living room with fireplace, dining room and kitchen. Rooms are furnished with 18th-century reproduction furniture.
The primary color scheme of the dining room, called The French Quarter, is forest green and burgundy. It also has a glassed-in atrium and chandeliers. Tables are set with floral linen overlays, fresh flowers and candles.
Dinner may begin with a Charleston crab cake or Shrimp-n-grits, feature Grouper Calhoun or a wonderfully tender Filet Mignon, and finish off with a dessert of white chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce. Entertainment is offered both in the lounge and the courtyard (seasonal). Complimentary sherry is served in the parlor.
Lodge Alley Inn is convenient to all the area attractions, including antique shops, boutiques, theaters and the new Waterfront Park.
