We found that the Charlotte's inn was a nice and charming hotel. The diner was excellent but we were quite disappointed by the rigidity of the front desk staff. We have the feeling that, when compared to others Relais Châteaux visited, the service offered was inferior to Relais Châteaux's standards. We did asked for a compromise for the breakfast since...

Charlotte I, Owner at The Charlotte Inn, responded to this review

A Few Facts to Ups and Downs 1) You asked for a 7:15 AM take out breakfast for your 7:15 AM cab. 2) The cost of breakfast was and never has been included. 3) It was politely suggested to walk approximately 70 feet - 35 seconds to get "take out" breakfast at Rosewater that opens at 6:00 AM.

My favorite Inn on the Vineyard! The atmosphere is SO charming, in a rich/old-world kind of way. There's attention to detail, in every detail from room decor, to the food, to the staff - this truly made my stay a top notch experience. I think the little things count... no detail was missed and that really made this place special....

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...

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
