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... More

My husband & I spent two nights at this bed & breakfast. We awoke from our incredibly comfortable bed each morning to the scent of breakfast wafting up the stairs. We were out of the Inn each afternoon when tea was served, but I'm sure it was as fantastic as the breakfast was delicious each morning. A different menu each... More

We spent two nights at the Governor's Inn as part of our 'leaf peeping' trip to New England earlier this month. We booked our trip through Purely New England and they described this B&B as 'unique and boutique'. It's a perfect description. It's like stepping back in time, elegant decor, classical background music, delicate bone china crockery and afternoon tea.... More

We were travelling for the foliage in Vermont and arrived at The Governor's Inn just before 7pm. Parking is just behind the house and Jim the owner greeted us warmly and showed us around. The decor of the house is very homey on the side of elegance, with lots and lots of European ceramics and antiques pieces. Our bedroom was... More

The Governor's Inn is a 'must stop' when traveling through Ludlow; you won't be disappointed! Jim and Cathy are warm and welcoming, providing their guests with all of the comforts of home, including a delicious and hearty breakfast. The Inn is well maintained, clean and quiet. If this is your first time in Ludlow, Jim is very knowledgeable about the... More

Jim Kubec on arrival introduced himself as an Inn Keeper and so he was. A more professional and attentive host would be hard to find. We arrived at about 17.30 and he greeted us with “English” tea, egg sandwiches & cake. Also available to guests a 24 hours hot drinks machine. We had the Governor’s room it being spacious, well...

This is our 4th stay at this wonderful B&B. Hosts, Jim and Cathy always treat us like family. They are gracious, welcoming, and are dedicated to making your stay memorable. Jim has such wonderful stories he shares when given the slightest prompt. We look forward to breakfast so we can share stories. Cathy is a wonderful cook, her VT cheese... More

I stayed at the Governor's in with my 79 year old mother for one night in August. The Inn exceeded our expectations in terms of comfort, space and detail-oriented pleasantness. We booked the huge Suite and Laura's room. Probably about twice the space we needed, but the suite has one bed and I wanted two, and preferably two rooms. The... More

I have been coming to the Ludlow Vt. area off and on since 1972, and had driven passed the Governor's Inn more times than I can count. In the early days, I was able to enjoy using family property for lodging while skiing, but that option is no longer available. I had always admired the way that the inn looked,... More

This inn is nice albeit noisy on the Main Street side. Breakfast is fine and the host Jim a nice person up to the moment when we have to pay. We stayed 3 nights in a medium quality room (noisy as of 5,30 am) and we were charged $997(no extra). We tried to discuss the price to no avail. Jim... More

JCKLudlow_VT, Owner at The Governor's Inn, responded to this review

Mr. Roux booked and pre-paid for his reservation through an online travel site, at a time when multiple rooms at multiple price points were available. He chose the highest priced room, with the most amenities. He also chose to visit the inn during fall foliage, our peak season, when rates are highest at bed & breakfasts all throughout New England.... More
