Meet the Innkeepers
Joe and Jill Lavin bought the Inn in 2006. They discovered this Vermont lodging property as customers of the Inn while visiting their son, Tyler, a 2005 graduate of Dartmouth College. They fell in love with the Upper Valley and wanted to become a permanent part of its culture and environment. Joe is a long time Hospitality Industry executive with such companies as Marriott, Westin and Choice Hotels.
