What makes a small downtown "charming"?

It's all very abstract and subjective. Personal preferences dictate the perception, really. What it comes down to, in most cases, is having a right balance of history, culture, nature, architecture and lighting. It varies depending on personal background. No one wants to live in an exceedingly bleak town, but equally no one wants to live in a theme park either. It's not like designing a movie set with a shopping list of "Charming" things to put in. Personal connection to the place is paramount.
