ABOUT THE INN
In 1950, Andrie Rose opened up her home at 13 Pleasant Street as a guest house named ‘Pleasant Lodge’. At that time, all Andrie’s family and the Pleasant Lodge guests shared one bathroom off the living room on the first floor.
Later owners renamed the building ‘Andrie Rose Inn’, and added bathrooms and additional guest rooms to the main building. A second building was also purchased and renovated, adding another 7 rooms to the Inn.
In July 2017, the last owners and innkeepers of the Andrie Rose Inn retired after 17-years, and the elegant buildings were purchased by Courtenay with the intent to continue the Inn’s tradition of gracious hospitality, with a refreshed and revitalized experience. Inspired by the family histories of Ludlow residents in the nineteenth century, Courtenay renamed the Inn after the Pettigrew family, and used other Pleasant Street residents from that period to rename the guest rooms.
The Pettigrew Inn strives to honor Andrie Rose and her tradition of warmth and hospitality which began with the Pleasant Lodge over 65 years ago.
THE PETTIGREW FAMILY
Andrew Pettigrew brought his family to Ludlow from Massachusetts in 1800, where he settled on South Hill and opened the first store in town. His family continued in the mercantile business in Ludlow for 100 years, with his grandsons, J.W. Pettigrew and E.G. Pettigrew purchasing land at the corner of Main Street and Depot Street to open a grocery store in 1857. The Pettigrew family was always very involved in their community, holding offices within the Baptist Church, town government, and even the Vermont State Legislature.
