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!

From the moment of pulling up outside this charming Inn to our reluctant departure four days later, we were treated in the utmost luxury. Delightful and knowledgeable staff willing to help in any way possible.The decor is v "old fashioned English" without in any way seeming dated or giving the impression that the service and accomodation were not v much...

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. You walk inside to the most incredibly kept home with art, antiques and amazing furnishings. Each room... More

Of course Charlotte Inn is a Relais and Chateau property, located in the charming little village of Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard, all of which tells you it is going to be special. But nothing prepared us for just how special--The Charlotte Inn is not only a wonderful place to stay, it is also almost a museum. Filled to the gills... More

Often you pay top price for an in-season hotel on the Vineyard or Nantucket only to find a disappointing inn and surly staff. Not so at the Charlotte Inn. The inn is centrally located, on a very quiet street, absolutely beautiful with no smell and perhaps the friendliest/helpful/caring staff we have ever encountered. There are parking spaces for loading &... More

Beautiful rooms and grounds, great service, good food and excellent location. There are too many mediocre (and very highly rated) inns and B&B's in Cape Cod and the Islands, and The Charlotte Inn shines above all of these. Expensive but worth it.

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

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
