Perfect for a romantic getaway or relaxing vacation retreat, each of the inn’s nineteen rooms and suites embodies old-world charm, elegantly appointed with period artwork and antiques, fine linens, goose down pillows, and supremely comfortable furnishings. Some rooms have working fireplaces or private garden terraces, and one is home to a baby grand piano. Call 508-627-4751 and allow us to select with you the perfect guest quarters for your leisurely escape to Martha’s Vineyard.

Make a reservation

The Charlotte Inn experience begins long before you arrive at our luxury hotel in the heart of Edgartown village. Gracious, personalized service starts with your first phone call to the inn, when your reservation is made in a one-to-one conversation with someone who cares about your needs and is dedicated to meeting them.

A personal welcome helps ensure the quality of your experience with us. By speaking with you directly, our knowledgeable staff can determine which of our fine accommodations would be best suited to your stay. Therefore, while we happily respond to your questions submitted via e-mail, we accept reservations by telephone only.

Pre-Arrival Concierge Services

The Charlotte Inn’s pre-arrival concierge services allow you to start planning long before you check in, to help ensure that you get the most out of every moment of your stay. Prior to your arrival, our manager will contact you to provide transportation assistance for airlines, ferry service, and car and bicycle rentals. We’ll happily make arrangements for dinner reservations, special events, picnics, and island excursions such as sailing and fishing charters. Here at The Charlotte Inn, we’re pleased to assist you in planning the perfect Martha’s Vineyard vacation.

The fine print

  1. When making advance reservations, please understand that just as The Charlotte Inn is making a commitment to its guests, the guest is also making a commitment to the inn. All credit card charges will be processed at the time the reservation is made.
  2. For reservations of three nights or more, we ask that the total amount due be paid in full. We require a 50 percent deposit on all advance reservations of six nights or more.
  3. Cancellations must be made 30 days prior to the day of arrival to ensure a full refund (minus a 5% service charge). Posted rates are subject to change except on confirmed reservations. Rates for rooms in the off-season may be slightly higher during holiday periods such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Rates do not include state and town room taxes (9.7 percent).

As a member of the Relais & Châteaux international association of luxury hotels and restaurants, The Charlotte Inn is committed to ensuring the best possible experience during your stay with us.
