About the innkeepers

My background in event coordinating and venue management led to me becoming an innkeeper. I have always been a planner and organizer from a young age and I find the most fulfillment in making other people happy. I love to hear peoples stories. Who they are, where they came from, why they are here. I see every guest as an opportunity to learn more about the world and about myself. My hobbies include running with my basset hound Lilly, exploring New England, and reading a good book on the beach!
