The Inn at Water's Edge

Boutique Bed & Breakfast
Inn 2022_edited.jpg



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 the corner of Scenic Route 100 and Kingdom Rd. outside of Ludlow.   

Nestled between Echo Lake and the Black River,

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

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

We are less than 5 miles from Okemo Mountain Ski Resort and Fox Run Golf Course, 

the only 5-star golf course in Vermont, and less than 20 miles away from Killington and Pico Ski resorts.

Camp Plymouth State Park is short paddle away as it sits on the northern edge of Echo Lake across from the Inn.


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 fire is mighty cozy on those long, snowy nights,

especially when accompanied by one of our delicious specialty drinks! 

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 are currently not serving dinners but are happy to 

recommend local restaurants, supporting our community.

We are typically are not available for bookings on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (everyone needs a bit of R&R); however, exceptions can be made depending on length of stay or other special considerations.  When booking "last minute" (within 48 hours of arrival), please call to make sure rooms are still available.

Sometimes reservations are delayed in the system.  Thank you.

All visitors traveling to Vermont are welcome.  

If not feeling 100%, please stay home for the sake of our innkeepers and guests.

Hope to see you soon!

Beautiful Weekend Getaway   

"I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast and Inn at Water's Edge blew us away!


The Inn was beautiful from the rooms to the common areas to the hosts. Every morning there was a choice of savory or sweet breakfast which was just delicious.

The rooms felt like a spa with the gorgeous features. We had some great dinners in the area (Downtown Grocery), hiked and canoed.


10/10 would recommend."
