In charming Edgartown on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, stands The Charlotte Inn. The proprietors have created a spirited revival of Edwardian-era elegance, which is apparent from the moment a guest steps through the front door. Upon approaching the mahogany Scottish barrister’s desk to sign the old-fashioned ledger, there is a sense of having stepped back in time.
The interiors of the Inn reflect an enduring interest in distinction and refinement. Each room has fine 19th century oil paintings and furnished with a collection of English antiques, all of which are still in use. Deep hunter greens and burnished mahogany paneling complete the mood.
Nestled on South Summer Street, shaded by magnificent linden and chestnut trees, the hotel is both secluded and accessible. In four period buildings are seventeen individually furnished guest rooms as well as two spacious fireplace suites. The vibrant and historic town center is only a leisurely stroll from the peace and tranquility found here.

The Inn’s grounds provide a unifying counterpart to the diverse architectural elements of an English country home. Immaculate lawns are punctuated by arches, tile borders, and fountains. Potted plants, English ivy, and manicured hedges underscore the distinguished air of the Inn’s lush gardens.
Start your day with breakfast in our dining room, a bright conservatory with white linens and Limoges china, or on the outside terrace amongst immaculate lawns and flowering plants. Enjoy a day exploring Martha’s Vineyard’s natural beauty, at the beach or on the water, or visiting each of its unique towns. In summertime, late afternoons are perfect for relaxing with a glass of iced tea on the porch or in the gardens. In cooler weather, enjoy a book by the fire in the living room.
From intimate fine dining to simple, fresh, and local seafood, Martha’s Vineyard offers a variety of restaurants to experience. Then, retreat at night to private terraces, fireplaces, and goose down pillows in one of our unique guest rooms.
