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

The Charlotte Inn is a lovely facility, only steps from the center of quaint Edgartown. Filled with antiques and other decorative touches, each room is unique and at first it's almost enthralling. You feel as if you've stepped into a Ralph Lauren ad or perhaps a guest room at Downtown. But that's the rub. After a day or two you... More

We stayed in the Charlotte Inn a weekend in late October. We picked Edgartown, not knowing too much about the differences between the towns in MV, but this was the perfect town, as well as the perfect inn. Starting with our arrival, and the tour and personal service we received, we were treated royally, and were totally floored by the... More

This place exudes elegance and character in a beautiful setting just a few steps from the harbor. It is filled with English antiques and artwork everywhere to give you a feel for a real English estate. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed with great amenities and filled with antiques.There must be at least 15 antique lamps in our... More

If anyone wants to viscerally feel how the area became known as "New England" then visit Edgartown in Martha's Vineyard and stay at least 3 days at The Charlotte Inn. It is a nineteen room ultra-comfortable, supremely elegant, antique and art filled inn with an absolute world class restaurant, the Terrace. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rent a bike.... More

The hotel is charming and unique. The staff are personable and very professional. It oozes character with its eclectic collection of art and antiques mostly from England. Our room was luxurious and elegant. It was cleaned immaculately every day with wonderful Frette sheets and towels. We breakfasted most mornings in the beautiful conservatory with a stunning garden. Breakfast was excellent... More
