The Terrace at The Charlotte Inn has been called the most romantic restaurant on Martha’s Vineyard and a showcase for local artisanal ingredients, with good reason. The elegant, old-world ambiance perfectly complements our classic American cuisine, prepared using the island’s abundant seafood, fresh farm produce, and pasture-raised meats and dairy. Our conservatory dining room and ivy-covered brick terrace set the scene for an exceptional dining experience. The Terrace is also available for private luncheons, wine tastings, and custom cooking classes. It’s become a culinary destination of its own on Martha’s Vineyard.
Visiting The Charlotte Inn is like stepping back in time. Exquisitely appointed with fine art, European antiques, and period furnishings, the inn revisits the grand and glorious lifestyle of Edwardian-era England. Throughout each of our meticulously restored buildings, you’ll find a remarkable collection of traditional nineteenth-century oil paintings, antique sterling silver and hand-cut crystal, leather and fine wood furnishings, and charming Edwardian-era accoutrements. Our book of full-color photographs, “Behind the Times on Purpose,” perfectly captures the inn’s attention to every period detail, a romantic reflection of a bygone era.
The romantic gardens and grounds at The Charlotte Inn are reminiscent of an old-world European country home. Our guests can relax in the privacy and serenity of our English-style perennial gardens, amid the inn’s intimate courtyards, meandering brick walkways, comfortable wicker and wrought iron garden furnishings, and vintage planters and statuary. Guests say our gardens are an inspiration for their own gardens at home, a welcome oasis of calm within the heart of Edgartown village. And we carry our love of flowers indoors too, with beautiful fresh floral arrangements to delight the senses throughout the year.
