To our European friends: The windows at the Inn on Charlotte Do Not Open. Please do not attempt to open the windows. And, we are cooled by a whole house or Central, Air Conditioning system. It turns on/off constantly to cool all the rooms upstairs and is controlled by a single thermostat in the hallway. We ask that everyone be considerate when adjusting it.
A beautiful brick home was constructed at 52 Charlotte Street in 1918 for a local attorney, Levi Nelson. It was built at a time when America was riding the wave of an economic high. The Great War (WWI) had been won. Modern wonders, born of the Industrial Revolution, were creating a more leisurely, carefree lifestyle in Florida. It was a lifestyle that would soon become known as the "roaring twenties." The spirit of those good times comes to life as soon as you walk into the Inn on Charlotte.
Attention to detail inside and out, during its 2003 restoration, and the use of quality antiques and grand reproductions, have captured the feeling of luxury in our bed and breakfast that denotes an era of prosperity. We think Levi Nelson would have approved of the cable TV, wireless internet access, and the many other modern B&B amenities.
