The suspended time at | Martha's Vineyard Island

After visiting The Point in the Adirondacks, Martha's Vineyard is bucket-list destination and the Charlotte Inn proposes to elevate this already exceptional visit into an experience worthy of a lifetime residency in your most valued memories.

Within our first few steps inside the Inn, we are submerged by a warmth emanating from the authenticity and kindness of the receptionist as well as from the picturesque and typically English decor. A welcome in absolute refinement and enthusiasm.
Our suite transports us into an era where the real luxury of life was to be surrounded by objects and items that permitted the enlightenment of the mind. We are indeed encircled by books, relics, paintings and thus inevitably succumb to the endless charms of this place. We make the most of the sweet evening hours with the latest Instants publication in our hands.
Time seems to have been frozen here at Charlotte Inn. The greatest classics from the English literature inhabit the shelves of our apartment. This small Tiffany & Co clock plays along, keeping steady for the picture...
A picture is worth a thousand words someone once said. But more precisely, a thousand words that communicate an atmosphere which is tangible, graspable. This shot of our chambers should charm you for the good reason that it accurately conveys the atmosphere we got to experience first hand.
What better time than this short stay in this unique setting to play along? The furnitures and the overall aura of our suite is the perfect way to completely immerse oneself and thus better understand the mindset of the protagonists who once inhabited these quarters.
At first glance, the common rooms of the hotel may seem a bit overcrowded by the different ornaments and relics. But once we take a step back and appreciate the spaces as a whole, everything suddenly makes sense and becomes an organic whole. Every component of the interior decoration is such a fascination of its own that it would be a great loss to not have it on display.

The warmth of this lounge never ceases to charm us. We indulged in a scrumptious breakfast at the table in the far-left corner of this picture. It’s while experiencing moments like these that we truly grasp the importance of the context in which eating takes place.
The main house is located in the heart of Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard capital so to speak, and we love the dark green accents that make it a very appealing and noble estate. The architecture is unmistakably neocolonial and fits splendidly with its most Edwardian interior.

While you’re in Martha's Vineyard, it would be a loss not to visit the whole island, an activity easily achievable in one day. The gingerbread houses in Oaks Bluff are a comical sight and while one may understandably question their practical aspect, they are worth the stop.
