LeAnn is the Twin Gables Innkeeper extraordinaire!

She treats every guest with TLC and goes above and beyond to create a fun-loving atmosphere. From personally greeting guests upon arrival and giving house tours to recommending wellness services and lighting fires outside, LeAnn and the Twin Gables team have it covered. 

 

LeAnn relocated from sunny Florida Keys to be closer to her family living in Lake George, NY.  After owning and operating her own small resort in Florida, she was excited for the opportunity to continue doing what she loves closer to home.  

 

Previously a restaurateur; her lifelong involvement in hospitality and service to people is truly her passion (along with food + wine.) 😉 Ask her about local restaurants and live music; she has made the town of Woodstock her home and will point you in the right direction. 

 

LeAnn's early career was in media sales and marketing, working with radio stations and newspapers in both Florida and New York. Experience in organizing many promotions and events for companies such as Pepsi and the Great Escape, helps with creating a great environment for people to enjoy!  Twin Gables is a perfect place to host your small wedding or retreat.

OWNERS

Travis, Azie, and their sons (Hunter + Kingston) discovered the sweet Victorian Guest House, Twin Gables, in January 2019 after visiting Woodstock several times. They knew it had potential to be restored to its former glory as an art-centric boutique hotel. 

Travis is an experienced hotelier with over 20 years in the hotel and leisure industry. He most recently spent five years at Highgate Hotels.  As a result of his success in executing a turnaround effort for over 1,000 New York City rooms owned by DiamondRock Hospitality, he received the 2017 Leadership Award from the publicly traded lodging REIT.

Prior to Highgate Hotels, Travis was a Managing Director at Centerboard Group, where he co-founded Roughneck Lodging, a temporary workforce lodging company for oil & gas, mining, power and infrastructure projects. 

Before joining Centerboard, his career experience included roles such as the VP of Special Asset Management at TriMont Real Estate Advisors, Vice President in the Real Estate Investment Banking Group at Bank of America, and Director at CNL Hotels & Resorts.  He is known for his love of basketball, his personal take on street style, and his proficiency in creating complex Excel spreadsheet models that dazzle board members. 

Azie Shelhorse is an accomplished interior designer + artist with experience in both hotel and residential spaces. She collaborated on projects with Marriott, Highgate Hotels, Aparium Hotel Group and DiamondRock Hospitality, prior to launching her own boutique hotel collection with Travis in 2019.

Azie has a creative arts background and her design work has been featured in a number of publications, including Elle Decor, Lodging Magazine, Hotel News Now, InspireDesign, Travel & Leisure, Forbes Magazine, Architectural Digest, Montclair Magazine, and Domino Magazine. She been one of the 70 New York City area designers featured in Housing Works’ Design on a Dime benefit for several years, and has a strong social media following.​ She is best known for her authentic original interiors, her compassion for the community, and her casual zodiac references to explain everything that happens in her life. 

More important than his extensive hospitality and finance background or her interior design accolades, on Travis' first date with Azie in January 2006, he told her he was going to have his own hotel one day. They were in their late 20s, eating at an Italian restaurant overlooking Lake Fairy in Longwood, Florida. Once he got her attention, he also asked if she would ever consider moving to New York. She promptly canceled her newly minted cabaret contract which would have taken her to Tokyo and far away from him. Six months later, they packed up their lives into a UHaul and drove up the East Coast together to take a chance on love. 

They opened their storefront {verdigreen}, a design-focused indie home furnishings shop and painting studio, in 2010. They had two showroom locations in Montclair and the East Village, NYC, before retiring from retail in 2020 to focus on their growing boutique lodging brand, {verdigreen} hotels. ​​

Twin Gables was their first foray into inn keeping and they hope you take a moment to breathe it in. They would love to hear about your stay!
