I have visited The Charlotte Inn many times over the years, and it remains our favorite romantic destination. The stunningly restored architecture, impeccable period decor, and meticulously maintained grounds have historic character that put the inn in a class by itself. The service is warm and personal, and yet gracious and refined. I cannot imagine what a labor of love it must have been to create this masterpiece of a setting, down to every elegant and authentic detail.
I am amazed by how flawlessly maintained the property is: gleaming brass and chrome, glossy paint, spotless walls and floors: how do they do it?
And the location is unsurpassed, on a quiet street but right in town and just a few steps to the shops, restaurants, galleries, and harbor.
All the staff, from the owners to the housekeepers, are so warm and helpful; I really have the sense that it is their pleasure to be of service. And the resident golden retrievers, Barclay and Nikki, wearing a necktie and bow respectively, are so sweet and well- trained.
It's a small thing, but I do love the Bulgari "green tea" toiletries. I normally don't use scented products, but there is something about the fragrance of these that transports me into heaven.
I also appreciate all the ways the staff go out of their way to guide us to the experiences we want to have on the island, including making available such a deluxe fitness center and spa. We loved relaxing and playing bocci and shuffleboard with our friends.
The inn is a peaceful, relaxing, luxurious refuge where I feel completely pampered and transported a million miles away from the hustle and worries of everyday life. Much gratitude to the innkeepers and staff for their creativity and dedication. I look forward to the next enchanting visit.
