About Lowndes Grove

DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON'S LAST GREAT WATERFRONT ESTATE

On 14 stunning acres on the Ashley River stands a National Historic Place - and the last of its kind. A circa 1786 Main House with two piazzas. A grand lawn, bluestone, brick and oyster tabby terraces. A River House with indoor and outdoor spaces. Exquisite guest accommodations. All in an unrivaled, waterfront Lowcountry setting. This is Lowndes Grove.

Patrick Properties acquired Lowndes Grove in 2007 and gathered together a team of architects, artisans, landscape and interior designers for an historic renovation. The last great waterfront estate on the Charleston peninsula reopened in March 2008 with its relaxed and refined essence and stunning settings for truly spectacular events.

    Best venue. Best company. Best experience.

    Trying to plan and host a wedding during a worldwide pandemic can be daunting and stressful. There were so many times during our planning process that I was worried our wedding would feel like a ‘COVID wedding’. PPHG put all our worries to rest with their impeccable attention to detail and thoughtful safety precautions that kept all our guests safe but didn’t obstruct from the beauty of the day. As the world was constantly changing, PPHG and our event manager Kailin kept us up to date with the latest PPHG safety guidelines so we could make any necessary modifications to our ceremony and reception. Absolutely nothing in terms of quality was sacrificed because of this crazy world we’re living in. So many people approached my husband, my family, and me at the wedding and in the weeks following to tell us our wedding was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. I will say the highest compliment our wedding received was the food! Everything was so delectable — we even had one friend say he would request the jumbo seared scallops from our reception on his death bed, if possible. PPHG not only holds the keys to the crown jewel venues in Charleston, but also to top-tier caterers, pastry chefs and event staff.

    Yes, Yes and Yes - without seeing it too!!!

    Had the best time working with Patrick Properties and securing this venue out of the others for my wedding day! I booked it unseen but could tell then just by the interaction with the staff and other reviews that I would be pleasantly surprised and thrilled with what my husband and I decided for our big day. The sunset alone was magical to see at the end of our ceremony - start of cocktail hour. The food was on point, atmosphere and staff were terrific!!! Thank you for all the time and attention put into making this venue shine for our big day - we loved it and will be back to visit soon.
