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 excellence and oversees the inn’s decor, maintenance, 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’s an author. His first novel, Appalachian Trail, is available at the inn and on Amazon, and he is hard at work on his second book. He enjoys cooking and chatting with the guests, and handles the inn’s marketing and business operations.
Barb, Gina, & Matt, Our Housekeepers
Barb, Gina, and Matt are the best part of staying at the Phineas Swann. Their devotion to making sure guests have a comfortable stay is amazing! In addition to serving breakfast, they make sure everyone’s room is perfect, and that you get a great night’s sleep.
Austin & Jordan, Our Handymen
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 Austin doing everything from painting siding to adjusting equipment, fixing plumbing, and making sure your stay is flawless. His assistant Jordan helps make sure everything looks and works perfectly.
