The Governor's Inn

86 Main Street , Ludlow, VT 05149 USA (Show map)


Step back into the 19th century, but with 21st century amenities! Afternoon tea, sweets and tea sandwiches served in the parlor with its extraordinary slate fireplaces, polished wookwork, and oriental rugs. Retire to your cozy bed chamber, warmed by a gas fireplace, read, watch cable TV or a video, or connect to WiFi; relax in the whirlpool. Awake to a bountiful breakfast -- perhaps apple cinnamon pancakes or our Vermont Cheese and Eggs in a puff pastry. Then off to explore Vermont. Experience outstanding food, impeccable service, gracious surroundings, friendship, and warm hospitality.

Our stay at the Governor's Inn was a great experience. Jim and Cathy pay attention to the details that add up to a great vacation. Proximity to Okemo during ski season is a great plus.

Great hospitality and lovely setting

We stayed at Governor's Inn for a ski weekend and had a really nice stay. Lovely hosts, great breakfasts, charming and historical home, and a nice relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Steps to town and only a mile from Okemo ski resort. Would definitely stay again, thanks!

We recently stayed at The Govenor's Inn and did not know what to expect because we have never stayed in Ludlow. The Govenor's Inn is well managed, clean personal...we can't wait to go back next year. Thanks Jim!

Great host, super breakfast! Rooms need some TLC just due to wear and tear. Inn is up for sale so perhaps the next owner can help.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you found our service and dining outstanding. I am concerned about your guest room and cleanliness ratings. We would like to know how we can improve.

One of the best bed and breakfasts

5 on August 27, 2014

The owners were more than hospitable. Amazing serivice and knowledge of local history. The home is updated with the latest technology from keypad door entry to automatic toilets. We stayed on the second floor. There was even a butler basket for items you may have forgotten tooth brushes, shaving cream, etc Breakfast was outstanding!!! Easily the best BB we have stayed. A must visit for any vermont goer. More than reasonable prices.

Excellent service and customer care

4.0 on July 09, 2014

Jim (with a J, not a G) was very welcoming as soon as we walked through the door. He gave us a tour of the house and explained the history of the area and of the previous owners. The Inn was beautiful and very well-kept. The Innkeepers were always available to answer our questions, and were extremely helpful in regards to local events, dining, and driving directions. We went for just one night to celebrate a special event, and were treated with as much time and attention as the guests staying for longer. The afternoon Tea was an excellent way to socialize with the other guests and the Inkeepers, and the breakfast was simply delicious. If I return to the area I plan on checking for availability here before going anywhere else.

Truly enjoyed the entire experience. Was having so much fun and enjoying the hospitality, that found it hard to leave each morning. Jim, Cathy and the team were wonderful hosts. We would definitely recommend to anyone.
