People Behind the Inn

Paul & Janel

Paul & Janel Gamm, Owners & Innkeepers

Paul and Janel love lakes. In fact, they both grew up in the land of 10,000 lakes, beautiful Minnesota. They took at trip out to Vermont for their honeymoon, fell in love with the place, and never left.

They’ve raised three daughters — Katja, Jordan, and Isabel — in Fairfax, just an hour east of Isle La Motte. Paul is a retired high school and community college chemistry teacher. When he’s not running the inn in the summer, he conducts research in chemistry part-time at the University of Vermont. Janel is a retired medical social worker. She now spends most of her time taking care of her grandchildren, volunteering, and running the inn. They love to work in the garden, and you’ll be sure to see Paul if there’s ever anything around the inn that needs fixing.

They’re really excited about the prospects of the Inn at the Isles, and they hope that it will be a successful source of income for People Helping People Global.
