At a distance of 2 km from Matheran Railway Station, Charlotte Lake, also known as Sharlott Lake is one of the popular Matheran tourist places situated near Echo Point. It is the prime source of drinking water in the Matheran region.

This 50 feet deep lake was built in 1956 AD. Water from this lake gets filtered and is supplied to the entire town of Matheran. This popular tourist destination is splendid during Monsoon and mostly gets dried up in summer. An ancient Pisarnath Mahadev Temple is located on the left bank of the lake. The two beautiful viewpoints, Louisa point and Echo point are located close to this lake. Bird watching is also a popular activity at the lake, especially during early morning and evening.
