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.

    Booking Lowndes Grove as our venue was definitely NOT disappointing. From day one we felt at ease and like the only family they were working with. Not only was the customer service FABULOUS, but every person we encountered left us feeling even better than before about our decision! Let me just say, THE FOOD, was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD. From the moment we had our first tasting we were so pumped up about the big event. Our number of guests went down from our original proposal, but we kept the same number of stations.... BECAUSE WE COULDNT POSSIBLY ELIMINATE ONE. When I say the culinary attention to detail is unlike any other wedding or food venue I have seeen, that is an understatement. Every detail of the food was perfect from the seasoning to the spices to the aesthetics. I was getting texts for days about the food. My husband and I only regret that we didnt get to eat more. That being said, PPHG boxed us up 2 of everything to take with us after the big day. The venue is beautiful, the staff is wonderful, so sad that our special day is over but so happy that we booked with best venue ever!! I also want to add that we had a big "foodie" crowd, so when I compliment the food, I dont not do so lightly!! PPHG you rock. Brides who are wondering if this venue is for you.... IT IS!!

    Lowndes grove plantation itself is breathtaking. The staff and team since day one was so helpful and timely in their response to my husband and I . We were battling a hurricane 4 days out from our wedding date to hit Charleston and the day of our wedding everything looked perfect and the team was so professional . I highly recommend.

    All we can say is wow! Rachel, Amber, and the rest of the amazing team with Patrick Properties went above and beyond to make our dream day come to life. Not only is this property drop-dead gorgeous and true to its southern roots, but the service from their sales and catering team was out of this world. They made what was already a day filled with complete love and joy because of our families and friends that much more amazing simply because of their acts of kindness, attention to detail, and overall well-run execution. We had a plated dinner for 230 guests, and it went off without a hitch. We are STILL receiving rave reviews about the food and service, and we have a lot of foodies in our families! We truly cannot say thank you enough to the wonderful team behind this gorgeous venue. You will not be disappointed if you book this venue for your big day!
