Escape to what has been named a magical destination, but most people call Charlotte Valley Historic Inn.  A place where your mind, body, and soul will relax and savor the restfulness of nature.


We your hosts, Lawrence and Joanne, welcome you to share in our warm hospitality, good food and comfortable surroundings in a lovely country setting. We are family run, and have lovingly restored this grand old stagecoach stop, originally built in 1832, into a cozy bed & breakfast and antique gallery. 


Our Goal:
We want you to experience "living history" while enjoying our interior and exterior environment.  Charlotte Valley Historic Inn is located in the hamlet of  South Worcester, and the Charlotte Valley itself is named after Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III of England.  

The Charlotte Valley has been the location of many significant events during the Revolutionary War.

Listed on the National Registry of Historic Districts, the hamlet of South Worcester showcases the authentic rural landscape of 19th Century America, and the Inn offers sweeping views of the valley, magnificent sunsets, stunning moonlit and starry nights, cool mountain breezes in summer and songbird serenades to greet you as the light of the glorious dawn emerges.

Charlotte Valley Historic Inn is the perfect retreat for those of us who appreciate the country, are antique enthusiasts, animal lovers, plant lovers, and bird watchers.  Here, nature is flourishing, and the area is abundant with a plethora of wildlife. 
Stop by Charlotte Valley Historic Inn to enjoy a one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast experience.  You can really and truly relax here.  


So, if you love or long for the country and love antiques, this is the place to be!  

Our friendly resident cat, Mr. Marmalade, might just usher you in!

 In addition to your bedroom, you will have access to the entire Inn including the main parlor with fireplace, reading room, sun room, dining room, front porch, and grounds with mature trees, shrubs, wildflowers and lilacs.  We have our hammock strung between our oldest maple and apple tree & we think you will enjoy gently swaying and maybe even drifting off into a restful nap.  Or, take a nice walk in the countryside.


The Inn has been furnished with antiques of the Federal and Empire periods with great attention to detail. 
The rooms have period lighting, wide-board pine floors and original double-hung multi-pane windows with uniquely textured wavy glass. 
The bathrooms have been restored with the original pedestal sinks and brass fixtures, flagstone floors and delft tiles. 
For your relaxation, the heated Sun Room features antique wicker sofas and chairs, a natural flagstone floor and a variety of flourishing plants.  You can watch TV and movies in this room.
You have unobstructed views of the entire valley. 
All of this creates an authentic harmonious flow throughout the building where you can feel a sense of days gone by, back when the Inn was built in the 19th Century.
