I dined at the Charlotte Inn alone. I embarrassingly made the reservation for the wrong date, but when I arrived the staff was wonderfully accommodating and quickly arranged for my unexpected arrival. The service and the fare were well beyond any expectations I may have had. I intend to dine again with my spouse and family as soon as I... More

Stayed during the second week of July with my partner. I usually rely on tripadvisor for many of my travel arrangements, however I believe this hotel's 4 star review lead us astray. As others have noted the hotel is very snooty, and upon my arrival I witnessed a manager/older woman screaming at one of her employees. That did not make... More

Our dining experience at the CI was a treat from start to finish. Our waiter was polished and personable and offered advice about the menu without being pretentious or pushy. We all chose different fare and everyone raved. Does the food taste better because the surroundings are so gorgeous? Who cares? It was just lovely and I highly recommend a... More

The Charlotte Inn is exquisite in every way. Gerrett and Paula are wonderful host and you feel relaxed from the moment you enter the front door. The rooms are beautiful and the dining experience is amazing. The staff are warm and personable and are ready to make your stay enjoyable. Can't wait to return.

8 of us friends rented a house on the Vineyard and we are all foodies from CA, NYC , NJ and AZ and we all agreed that our premier dinning experience was at the Charlotte Inn, from the Carb Ravioli to the unique cocktails this meal sent us to heaven. It is not often one is able to impress us... More

A beautiful and charming Inn in the heart of Edgartown, tucked away to allow a private and exclusive feel. The service was welcoming and professional. Rooms are charming and comfortable. Treat yourself to this nice treasure.

We have stayed here now for the 4th year in a row and we simply love it. Paula and Gary are the best hosts you can imagine and make you really feel at home from the moment you arrive until the minute you leave. The rooms are fantastic, decorated with passion and taste in a very unique way with lots... More

my wife and i just finished three days at the inn and really i have nothing negative to report EXCEPT that our room was a bit small, BUT it came as advertised and exactly what i paid for and had more charm and warmth in those square feet than anyplace we have encountered. Next time around I will focus on... More

heavenly...we just spent the weekend in the Carriage House suite. A room with a soaring ceiling, fireplace, and a large arched window facing the sea. Tall green velvet curtains were drawn for us at night covering the gardens and terraces below. Perfect English fabric and beautifully polished furniture furnished our room...The restaurant in the main house resembles an English glass... More

The Charlotte Inn is owned by the gracious and elegant Paula. Her personality is personified by the elegant and meticulously maintained gardens and buildings. Our room was filled with artwork, antiques, books and other treasures collected by Paula, over the 43 years she and her husband, have lovingly owned and cared for the property. We were very fortunate to have... More
