Get to know us!

Your innkeepers, Lyle and Tammy Woodrum,  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 careers, including Kansas, Oregon, Nebraska, Texas, Illinois, and even India. In early 2014, 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 June 2017.

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. 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!

Living in the owner's quarters with your innkeepers are our two Chocolate Labrador Retrievers, Mustang and Angus. We adopted these two siblings from New Leash On Life, a wonderful pet rescue center in Fairfield, TX.

We didn't know what to name them until we rounded a corner on the way back to Dallas from Fairfield and came upon a sign pointing to the town of Mustang, TX in one direction and Angus, TX in the other.

Mustang is the smarter, and the most athletic, of the two. She always has that inquisitive look in her eyes. Angus is the most lovable of the two, convinced that he is actually a lap dog. You'll probably never see either of them as they live exclusively in our owner's quarters and have their own private yard.

Some of our guests have allergies and/or fear of animals, and for that reason Mustang and Angus never venture into any of the rooms nor into any common areas or kitchen. For that same reason, we cannot allow animals other than service dogs in the inn. These two give us joy and their faces light up when they see us; they are a delight to have around.
