About

Come,relax and enjoy Charlie-Jane's, built in 1882,decorated with antiques, oak woodwork and family treasures, a tranquil setting just right for you. Rest in one of the 3 delightful upstair bedrooms, plus read a book, entertain family, or finish a puzzle in our comfortable seatingroom downstairs. Take advantage of our "Extend A Stay" rates and Special Packages. A homemade breakfast is served every morning in the Dining Room, or have breakfast to go. One of our specialities is Creme Brulle French Toast, but our egg whites are whipped and folded into our homemade Flo's Waffle batter, and our Amish Sausage Potato Casserole has lots of flavor, so that is why we let you decide. Enjoy walking our peaceful community, get comfy on one of the wrap-around porch chairs, or swing softy in the pergola surrounded by our flower gardens. Don't forget to check the things to do, places to see and the festivals! We look forward to spoiling you at Charlie-Jane's!

Best place ever. Breakfasts to wake up early for. Chatter in the kitchen. Stress relievers to pet. And do ask about the bed selection process. You will keep coming back.

Fantastic place to stay

4.4 on September 28, 2013

I was in Ringgold county for a work project and Charlie and Jane's was the perfect spot to "come home to" after a long day...especially since the job was supposed to take 2 full days to complete (meaning I only booked one night) but ended up taking longer and they were able to take me in for another night on short notice (as in I just showed up on their doorstep, exhausted and stressed out and they welcomed me in with absolute graciousness). The bed and room were very comfortable (I stayed in the Rhodes suite) and the breakfasts, which were vegetarian friendly per my request, were delicious. I really enjoyed my stay and recommend Charlie and Jane's to travelers looking for a homey place to enjoy Midwestern hospitality.
