Meet The Innkeepers
Glenn, Jaime, and Gigi moved to Vermont in May 2012 to begin their new life as innkeepers of the Russell Young Farm Bed and Breakfast and immediately began updating and redecorating the entire inn. Prior to purchasing the Russell Young Farm Bed and Breakfast, Glenn and Jaime were Massachusetts residents living just south of Boston. Glenn had a Psychotherapy Private Practice and Jaime worked in Marketing and Corporate Communications for many years.
Glenn grew up in Middlebury Vermont, went to college in Northern California, traveled throughout North America, Europe and Israel, and lived in Portland Oregon for many years before driving cross country back to the East Coast to attend a Social Work Graduate Program in Boston. When you visit, ask how he moved from Northern CA by way of Alaska to settle in Portland OR. Glenn is a self-taught cook, and his love of cooking is the secret ingredient to the dishes you will savor at our B&B.
Jaime grew up in Holliston Massachusetts, attended UMASS Boston, and has traveled extensively throughout Eastern Canada due to his Nova Scotia roots. Jaime is a self-taught graphic designer and his eye for color and detail are evident throughout the B&B where every corner features another hidden delight. Jaime’s idea of camping is staying in a 2 star motel, so he has made sure that every guestroom and common area feature comforts and conveniences for our guests to enjoy.
Gigi is the newest addition to our family, and is frequently referred to as “the Monster in the Kitchen,” (think Jim Henson’s Muppets kind of Monster). Gigi was born in Battleground Washington and flew cross country to live with Glenn and Jaime in Massachusetts when she was merely 12 weeks old. Gigi loves Vermont, she loves people, and she is EXTREMELY out going and friendly. She spends most of the day attached at the ankle to Glenn and/or Jaime, and she only interacts with guests upon request of the guest. The guest rooms and common areas are pet-free for everyone to enjoy, but you are welcome to come into the kitchen to say “hi” to our little monster or just wave to her as she lounges beside the puppy gate at the kitchen door.
Breakfast is an event at Russell Young Farm Bed & Breakfast. When you enter the Gathering Room in the morning you’ll find the side board arrayed with fresh brewed local coffee, fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, and homemade granola. The main breakfast entrée is served between 8:00-9:30, and features culinary delights crafted from fresh, local ingredients. Breakfast entrees may be sweet, such as Pecan Oven-Baked French Toast or Buttermilk Cinnamon-Blueberry Pancakes, or they may be savory such as the Russell Young Farm Frittata or the Russell Young Farm Grilled Breakfast Sandwich which features Fried Egg, Bacon and Vermont Cheddar between two thick slices of Farmer’s Bread spread with a Maple/Dijon glaze. Breakfast is often accompanied by Home Fries better than your favorite diners’, locally made Country Sausage, or Brown Sugar-Peppercorn Bacon. You’ll definitely start your day with a full tank.
