The Combes Family Inn

953 East Lake Road , Ludlow, VT 05149 USA (Show map)


This is a true family inn on a quiet country back road in the heart of Vermont's mountains and lakes region. There are 50 acres of rolling meadows and woods to explore and to cross-country ski. The inn itself is a century-old farmhouse. The dining room has exposed beams and a bay window overlooking pastures and Okemo Mountain. Relax and socialize (BYOB) in our Vermont barnboard 'keeping room' furnished with turn-of-the century oak. Sample Bill's country breakfasts.

We did not want breakfast as we had been to a large eating reunion but the Combes were very friendly and served us coffee and muffin

A true Holiday in Vermont

Our stay at the Combes Family Inn was really one of the best in our many years of staying at B&B's. A true warm family setting, great food, very attentive service, and great times in the family room. We have tried others and the Combes Family Inn is the only place we will stay in Vermont.

Just a wonderful week!

I went to Vermont with a friend in July. Never having stayed at a bed and breakfast, I wasn't sure what to expect. First of all, it is situated in a very lovely and quiet spot where you could just enjoy the sounds of nature. Ruth and Bill were very accommodating. Ruth gave us information about places in the area to visit while Bill cooked up and served a great breakfast every morning. They have rooms there for people with dogs. My friend brought two dogs with her. They stayed in one room while I was in a different part of the house. It worked out well for everyone; I never heard any noise at night from any of the dogs that were there. It was a wonderful week all around. Thank you Ruth and Bill!

Country Setting, Nice rooms, Great Service...You can't go wrong here.

Wonderful Experience

I am a youth leader at a church in CT and we have brought our YG kids here at least once a year for a ski trip since 2007. Bill and Ruth are incredibly accommodating and patient with large groups of kids...and they cook the best meals! We have never been dissatisfied with our stay, and strongly recommend this place for both small groups and large. Thank you Ruth and Bill!

Comfortable, quaint, lovely place

We stayed Friday through Sunday to do some hiking around the area. Ruth gave us maps of two great trails, and we actually did both in one day! The Healdville Trail was slightly more advanced than I expected, but it was a beautiful trek. Quite gorgeous snowy top. Ruth also recommended The Loft. We visited the restaurant for lunch and a couple beers. The food is delicious, and we had leftovers from the large portions. Finally, the Combes Family Inn is a scenic drive away from the Vermont Country Store in Weston. We spent at about 2 hrs there! I'm happy I brought home some mix to make Chardonnay dip. This trip was very memorable, and I would definitely recommend Combes Family Inn.

Outstanding for Ski Clubs!!

4.4 on March 26, 2010

Our ski club has been going to The Combes Family Inn for at least 15 years, same time each year. Bill and Ruth run the best B&B we have ever stayed at in Vt. Food is excellent with such a variety of dinners and breakfasts that keep us coming back year after year. One of the clubs most popular trips, it sells out first day offered each year. Best part is the apre ski party each late afternoon when we return from a day on the slopes. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere, you really must try it to appreciate the hospitality!!
