My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and felt the Charles Inn had a lot of amenities. You can take a water taxi from dinner/lunch right to the property,it is less than 5 minutes walking from Main St., and the price is reasonable. Our bed was so VERY comfortable and Paula and John are extremely hospitable. Breakfast was WONDERFUL each morning and we enjoyed the elaborate dining details that accompanied our meal. We chatted with other guests and then created a relaxing day walking about the city. There is a little park right down the street from it that's wonderful for sitting with a coffee and checking out the boats on the water.
The owners do have pets (a dog and 3 indoor/outdoor cats), and the cats do own the living room. The rooms themselves are unique and fresh feeling and we recommend the two larger rooms for your stay. We stayed in the Little Star which is cute with a tub in the bedroom but would have preferred more space. Next time!
