Bed & Breakfast
Welcome to Charlotte Estate Bed & Breakfast
Nestled at the edge of the lush forest, overlooking the Caribbean sea and within walking distance of Roseau, Dominica's vibrant capital, Charlotte Estate Bed & Breakfast is the ideal place to stay overnight for business, a few days more for a romantic getaway or even a week or two to experience Dominica's unparalleled opportunities for outdoor adventures.
This beautiful homestead built in the 1920s is at the center of an 18th century plantation named after Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III of England. The Main House contains three large bedrooms with private bathrooms, presents traditional West Indian architectural features such as deep verandah, high ceilings for ventilation, wooden hurricane shutters and a steep, pitched roof.
Slightly uphill and behind the Main House, the Cottage, which offers two bedrooms also with private bathrooms, is a newer addition built on the foundations of an old chicken coop. The property is surrounded by mature fruit trees and splendid flower and vegetable garden where our guests can walk freely, relax in the many seating areas or simply linger among the plantation ruins that shelter a chicken coop and a plant nursery.
Other amenities include the Main House's large and inviting Great Room furnished on one side with comfortable leather couches. On the other side, a conference/working area that can accommodate 6 to 8 people is discreetly secluded by luxuriant plant boxes. The Great Room is also where you will find the bar area, where you can relax and enjoy refreshing beverages throughout the day.
Every morning, a freshly cooked meal made with local ingredients and products from the estate garden is served on the veranda overlooking the Caribbean Sea. After breakfast, our guests can opt to relax on the tranquil front porch, listen to the sounds of tropical nature in the various sitting areas of the vast garden, learn about the plants of the property at the nursery or grab their daypacks and venture out to explore Dominica. From hiking the famous Waitukubuli trail to exploring the island's beautiful waterfalls and refreshing rivers, or discovering Dominica's underwater world, visiting the capital's bustling market or decompressing in a natural hot spring, we can organize all the details of our guests chosen activities
We want our guests to experience an unforgettable stay and love Dominica as much as we do.
All five non-smoking rooms are unique and nicely decorated.

“We had a wonderful stay at Charlotte Estate, it is an amazing house with beautiful rooms and fabulous views to the ocean and all around the large, lush garden.
Celine and Marcel are fantastic hosts and extremely knowledgeable about the island, they took time to advise us and help organise trips.
The food was Incredible, absolutely delicious. We especially enjoyed trying their interpretation of local Creole food.
I hope it won’t be too long before we return!”
