The Charlotte Inn of Edgartown received the 2011 Forbes Four-Star Award for its third consecutive year, making the inn one of only a select few hotels worldwide to earn the organization’s rating designation that recognizes superior guest satisfaction.

The Charlotte Inn’s review by Forbes Travel Guide’s incognito experts can be found online at It notes that the “Charlotte Inn is a quietly posh bastion of Edwardian splendor, is an oasis of tranquility even though it’s located in the middle of the busiest town on Martha’s Vineyard. Once you walk along the garden paths under the linden and chestnut trees, you just know this is a place coveted by those with a penchant for privacy and peace. Inside, the rooms are outfitted in elegant 19th-century art and original antiques. The guest rooms continue the luxe treatment with flatscreen TVs, down pillows and comforters and Bulgari toiletries.”

A delighted Gery Conover of the Charlotte Inn said, “Each day we strive to provide our guests with a level of satisfaction based on the gold standard set by Forbes Travel Guide.”
