Innkeepers and Staff at Phineas Swann
Welcome to our house. We hope you will enjoy your time with us. We began this journey like you, as guests of the Phineas Swann, and so fell in love with it that we purchased this lovely bed & breakfast.
If you feel comfortable and “at home,” then we know we are doing something right. We enjoy nothing more than opening our home to others.
We would like your days with us to be as enjoyable as our days here. We would love to see you again and again, and we hope that in the future, we can consider you our good friends.
Lynne & Darren
Lynne Drevik, Innkeeper
Lynne retired after 20 years working as a logistics planner for Colgate-Palmolive in Atlanta and New York. She grew up in downstate New York and has fond memories of vacationing and skiing in Vermont as a child. Lynne is in charge of the inn's stunning gardens, serves as our baker par excellance and oversees the inn's decor and housekeeping.
Darren Drevik, Innkeeper
Darren is a writer and former newspaper editor. As you'll quickly figure out from his accent, he's a Southerner, originally from East Tennessee. He recently completed writing his first novel, Appalachian Trail, and is working on his second. He enjoys cooking and chatting with the guests, and handles the inn's marketing.
Emmy, Assistant Innkeeper
Emmy is now working with her third set of owners here at the Phineas Swann. She oversees breakfasts, serves as head housekeeper and is dedicated to making every guest's stay exceptional. She's a great mother of a 12-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son, so in addition to her work at the inn, you can imagine that she keeps very busy!
Barb & Lori, Housekeepers
Barb and Lori have both been with the Phineas Swann for several years now, and not only work to keep everyone's rooms looking great, but aid in preparing breakfasts and keeping all the details of the inn just right.
A great inn requires a great handyman to keep everything in tip-top shape. If you're here during a weekday, you're likely to find Michael doing everything from painting siding to adjusting equipment and making sure your stay is flawless.
Marshall, Director of Security (right)
At 12+ years old, Marshall, on the right, is a very seasoned beagle. You won't see much action from him, but when someone comes by he might just lift his head and let out a howl just to let you know he's there. If you give him a petting, you'll never see a dog's tail wag harder.
Magnolia, Chief Kissing Officer (left)
Our other beagle, Magnolia is our CKO (Chief Kissing Officer). The official greeter of the Phineas Swann, she'll jump up and give you as many kisses as you can stand. There's not enough attention in the world for her, but you're welcome to try.
