My fiancé and I just spent an extended weekend at Governor's Inn, and we had an unforgettable experience. Weekends such as these really make me wish that there were more gems to replace all of the impersonal large hotel chains. The b&b is run by a very sweet couple that really know how to make guests feel welcome and comfortable....

We visited this lovely Inn for a second time. We stayed in Priscilla's room, which has a large gas fireplace with a carved mantle, a large wooden bed, comfortable bedding, a large wooden armoire and dresser to store coats and clothing. The bathroom and toilet is in one small room. The sink and vanity area is outside the bathroom. Large...

Fabulous B&B. Inn Keeper was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Room was up-to-date and clean. Loved the turn down service at evening. Town of Ludlow had a lot to offer (i.e. dinner, and shopping).

This B&B is in a gorgeous Victorian home. It has all of the ambiance of the period, china, afternoon tea, lace curtains etc. In addition, there are flat screen TV's and wif-fi to make it very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding.

Great Stay, the breakfast was amazing! and enjoyed great conversation with the InnKeepers! The Inn is right in town, and walking distance to resturants for dinner. It is also very close to Okemo MT, where we had a event there during the day. It was a great find and the breakfast food was unbelievable!

My husband and I loved every minute of our stay, from the cozy, quaint furnishings, delicious hot homemade breakfasts, and amenities. We had a toilet in our room that flushed automatically when you closed the lid and a fireplace in the room that was connected to the manual thermostat! The afternoon tea was such a nice touch after a day...

We have never stayed in Ludlow, VT and were skeptical at first, sight unseen. We stayed two nights and thought the Inn was personal, cozy, clean and the Inn keeper was friendly and helpful. We stayed two nights to go skiing @ Okemo, and would definitely stay here again! BTW, the breakfast (which is included) was excellent!

We were in town to ski after spending a few days skiing several hours north of Ludlow. We got lucky when one room became available over the president's day weekend. The inn is charming and clean and attractive. The innkeeper was very friendly. Our room was clean and neat and perhaps a bit on the small side. Such is life...

This home, the former residence of the Governor of Vermont dating back to 1890s, is a beautiful home with a lot of charm. From the fine china at breakfast, the high quality linens, and the beautiful woodwork throughout, it's a top notch establishment that pays great attention to all details. The hosts Jim and Kathy, along with their staff, work...
