Meet the Innkeepers

All Roads Lead To Gloucester….

One never knows where an unexpected turn in the road may lead. Troy grew up in Hatten, ND, attended the University of North Dakota and made his way to Los Angeles to pursue a career in investment management. Theresa grew up in Rye, NY, attended Dartmouth College and eventually joined a brokerage firm in New Canaan, CT where she was assigned to cover Troy’s account. Bi-coastal careers brought them together and Warner Hall became their destiny!

After moving to Williamsburg, VA in 1992 and immersing ourselves in the world of financial services, we decided to recalibrate our personal navigation systems and cross the bridge – literally, over the York river, from Williamsburg to Gloucester!

Beginning with the restoration of this magnificent, historic gem in 1999, our life at Warner Hall has been an incredible adventure.

Transitioning from Financial Services to Hospitality has been one of the most satisfying and wonderful journeys of our lives. What really counts for us, is the opportunity to share stories and experiences with a multitude of interesting people like our guests, and hopefully spark a little joy and happiness in everyday life.

So please, take a turn down Warner Hall Road…we can’t wait to welcome you!
