As Assistant Inn Director, Abby coordinates group stays, manages guest service staff, makes sure rooms and cottages are ready for guest arrival, and does many other tasks, both large and small, to keep the Inn running smoothly. She is a familiar face on the Farm, having worked at the Inn since 2015 as the PM Front Desk Attendant, and then as Guest Services Assistant Manager and Inn Keeper. Abby lives with her partner Tim Fox, a chef in the Inn’s Farm-to-Table Restaurant. She brings to our community a strong sense of teamwork, attention to detail, organization and a healthy dose of humor. The people, the place, and the purpose of Shelburne Farms are what keep her here and happy. Prior to her work here, Abby was the Dining Room Assistant Manager at the Home Ranch, a Relais & Château property near Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Her time at the Home Ranch taught her how to provide ideal customer service and the immense benefits of being detail oriented. Outside of work she loves hiking, cross-country skiing, foraging and other outdoor activities that are so bountiful in Vermont. Abby looks forward to providing guests the highest level of hospitality to allow them to enjoy the Inn’s beauty, informal elegance and services to the fullest.
