Boutique Bed & Breakfast

The Inn at Water's Edge

was established in 1999 and completely renovated in 2020. 

Our boutique waterfront Inn is strategically located

in the Green Mountains of Vermont on Scenic Route 100 outside of Ludlow.   

Nestled between Echo Lake and the Black River

and minutes from Okemo Mountain Resort and Killington Ski Resort,

The Inn at Water's Edge offers a plethora of adventures for those who enjoy exploration,

and sweet solitude and peace for those who just want to relax.


Our eleven bedrooms have been completely renovated and are uniquely and beautifully decorated. 

Each bedroom has an adjoining, private, custom-tiled bathroom

with handmade toiletries developed exclusively for the Inn.


Our public spaces have also been rejuvenated and exude the warm flavor of hospitality and welcome.  

Our authentic English Pub adjoining The Gathering Place offers

a lovely space for meetings, family reunions, celebrations, and retreats. 

Our dining rooms are intimate and timeless, showcasing beautiful parquet floors which are

original to the 1878 home.


Breakfasts at the Inn are a delight to the eye and palette 

with plated farm-to-table creations ranging from coconut french toast to chilaquiles.

We will close briefly from October 25th to November 23rd for "Sticks Season"

 but look forward to seeing some old friends and new guests next month when our winter/ski season begins.

Our fire is mighty cozy on those long, snowy nights, especially when accompanied by one of our

delicious specialty drinks!  Hope to see you soon!

All visitors traveling to Vermont are welcome.

Free Wifi


The fastest internet Ludlow,VT has to offer.  Don't compromise connectivity even in rural splendor.  Plenty of speed for streaming video, conference calls, etc.

Garden & Games


Curl up with a novel in our gazebo or by the trout stream.  Or best your companions in bocce or horseshoes. 

Echo Lake and Black River


Take a dip in gorgeous Echo Lake or paddle around in one of our canoes or kayaks.  Our lakefront has its own dock and beach and our river front has excellent trout fishing.  To end the day, what could be better than gathering around the fire pit with s'mores?



  Fresh sheets, towels and robes will keep you in the lap of luxury.  Let us tidy your room while you enjoy the slopes, lake, or relaxing premises. 


Our stay at The Inn At Water's Edge was great.  The Inn has undergone a complete renovation and the finished product is incredible. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed and the food was amazing.


Mitch, the chef, makes almost everything from scratch and he puts his unique spin on all of the dishes whether it is his soup, pancakes or gelato.


Great place to stay for families or for a couples get away. We can't wait for our next visit.
