About Us

Lyle and Tammy Woodrum purchased the Davie School Inn from original owners, Gary and Andrea Dahmer, on June 29, 2017.     The Dahmers invested many hours transforming the school into the unique lodging facility that you see today.

Lyle and Tammy met and married in Albany, Georgia where Lyle was stationed as a US Marine.   After leaving the Marine Corps, they both worked in the corporate world for over 30 years for such companies as Sprint, Northern Trust, and Walgreens.   Even though their roots are in West Virginia, they have lived in many places throughout their career, including Kansas, Oregon, Nebraska, Texas, Illinois, and even India.   About three years ago they decided to purchase a bed and breakfast as a way to ease into retirement.   This led them on many searches around the country looking for the perfect place that would fit the lifestyle they were hoping to find.    Their search led them to the Davie School Inn.     They relocated to Anna from Mundelein, Illinois after purchasing the inn.

The Woodrums have two sons, a daughter-in-law and a grand-daughter, all living in the Dallas area.   Lyle's hobbies include backpacking, mountain climbing, hiking, riding his motorcycle, painting and football (be sure to check out the yellow Steeler Mobile when you visit the inn).   Tammy's hobbies include baking, reading, sewing, yard sales/flea markets/antiquing and any other form of bargain hunting, and volunteering.    

We are excited about being innkeepers and carrying on the traditions of the Davie School Inn.   We look forward to having you as our guest!
