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... More

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... More

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

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.
