This was the 5th or 6th time we have stayed at the Charlotte Inn. Architecture is typical of the grand Edgartown "sea captains' houses" but the Inn goes well beyond typical in the attention that has been given to the decor, the details, and the maintenance of multiple buildings and grounds. The original owners are on the property every day... More

A friend of mine and I went for a getaway weekend. My friend had been at the Inn before but it was my first visit. What a gem. The staff could not have been nicer, our room was neat and clean and very charming. We ate in the dining room our first night and the food/service was outstanding. I can't... More

We are personally offended by this one seemingly "hatred generated" review of the Charlotte Inn. We have been guests at the Inn on repeated occasions since 2005. If you find yourself in a setting of elegance and finery -embrace it accordingly. in July ( busy MV tourist season) or September (off season) the Charlotte Inn is refined. ( Refined with... More

After given time to reflect on this, I apologize for bringing Eliot and his wife into this conversation. That was not my intention. I definitely am not the writer that Eliot and his wife are. This review reflects me alone. I have attempted to remove the previous review, but the current rules don't allow removal of a previous post. So... More

To be sure.... the world-class Charlotte Inn evokes the aura of a better bygone era in a property brimming with Anglo-American elegance and luxury. And while even the most discriminating traveler is bound to be impressed The Charlotte's Relais & Châteaux higher taste and style levels... the very heart of the inn lies in proprietors Gery and Paula Conover's passion...

The Charlotte Inn is a welcoming compound in Edgartown comprising a main house and several surrounding properties. When my wife and I arrived we were greeted curbside, escorted to the front desk where we signed in and were given a brief tour of the first floor while our luggage was taken to our room. The Inn is located on a... More

We were given a room valued at far less than what was prepaid, even though there were apparently many other larger and nicer available rooms. The room is pleasant but not worth over $700 per night. One would think for that price breakfast would be included or afternoon tea. Also, the internet did not work in our room. The grounds... More

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the Charlotte Inn and could not have been happier. We were in Room 5 located in the main house. All of the rooms are furnished with antiques and although they are small, they are very charming. The inn is "storybook perfect"....from the perfectly landscaped grounds to the attention to detail on... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Listed as one of the "Top 101 Hotels in the World" by Tatler's 2012 Travel Guide and a long-standing member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux small luxury hotel group, The Charlotte Inn is settled just a half block off Main Street and two blocks from the harbor-front in downtown Edgartown. Among 4 buildings are 17 guest rooms and 2 suites individually decorated with fine antiques in a wonderful English garden setting. The Charlotte Inn provides guests with what we consider the "ultimate luxury" - a glimpse back in time to a more peaceful and restful frame of mind. A visit to The Charlotte Inn - from an overnight or a week vacation - is an opportunity to escape from the hectic, rushed, technology and gadget driven daily routine and enjoy the simpler things life has to offer. With all that Martha's Vineyard has to enjoy as your daily playground - from beaching, boating, fishing, and sightseeing, to fine dining and shopping, to simply strolling along the historic whaling captain’s home lined streets along the harbor and down to the lighthouse, The Charlotte Inn offers our guests a relaxing home away from home to retreat to and an opportunity to cherish life's simpler times. Whether iced-tea on the porch with a good book, chatting with friends and fellow guests on a garden terrace, or enjoying a glass of wine by the fire with your companion in cooler weather, we hope that our guests embrace the opportunity to join us in the experience we work so hard to provide - a getaway from the stress and pressures of today’s fast-paced lifestyle and a chance to enjoy a peaceful reprieve in an atmosphere that is the perfect combination of elegance, luxury and comfort. Nothing satisfies us more than to provide our guests with this experience, and to watch them enjoy, unwind and cherish their time spent at The Charlotte Inn in the way that we prefer and as our adage suggests - "Behind The Times on Purpose". ... more   less
