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. The Charlotte Valley itself is named after Queen Charlotte, who was the wife of King George III of England during the Revolutionary War. The Charlotte Valley and its environs have been the location of many significant events and battles during the Revolutionary War.
Listed in the National Registry of Historic Districts, the Hamlet of South Worcester showcases the authentic rural landscape and structures of 19th Century America. The Inn offers sweeping views of the valley, magnificent sunsets, stunning moonlit and starry nights, cool mountain breezes in summer and morning 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, nature lovers, history lovers, plant lovers, and bird watchers. We take pride in offering you a truly one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast experience. So, if you love or long for the country and love antiques, this is the place to be!
In addition to your bedroom, you will have access to the entire Inn including the main parlor with fireplace, reading room, sunroom, dining room, front porch, and grounds with mature trees, shrubs, wildflowers and lilacs.
The Inn has been furnished with antiques of the Federal and Empire periods with great attention to detail. 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 play games or watch TV and movies in this room. You have unobstructed views of the entire valley.
