This is our third time at the Charlotte Inn and it continues to be an exceptional hotel. It always feels like we're coming home. The staff are so kind, they can't do enough for you. We have stayed at many lovely hotels world and the Chalotte Inn continues to be one of our all time favorites. Not to me missed

We came to Martha's Vineyard for a wedding weekend. Our intent was to make the weekend a relaxing few days. The Charlotte is a pure delight. Each room is a visual wonderland with many gorgeous antiques, interesting pieces of memorabilia and lovely gardens. Our dining experience at "The Terrace" was excellent. Our dinner was delicious and the waitstaff attentive and... More

I can't say enough about the Charlotte Inn. From the time we got out of our taxi until we left, everything was wonderful! We were met at the curb by a young man that took our luggage and directed us to the front desk. We checked in and we were escorted to the Carriage House. It was like staying in... More

This place is a work of art. The decor and gardens are beautiful. The staff are gracious and professional. Location is perfect....one block from Main Street surrounded by lovely historic houses and buildings. One of my favorite things was that our room was always made up when we returned from breakfast each morning. You can't go wrong here!

Every square inch of this property will leave you in awe. The gardens surrounding the property are absolute perfection. So inviting and incredibly well done. Pots of flowers, Ivy, stone planters, antiques, iron furniture...I couldn't possibly completely describe the paradise this inn is.

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
