Meet the Innkeepers

Meet the most amazing hospitality team in Maine! Everyone working at The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast of Southern Maine has a story to share of how they ended up in the world of innkeeping but if you ask any of us, we’ll each tell you that we never imagined we’d be innkeepers!

Scott Fuller-Beatty & Jason Fuller-Beatty

E Scot Fuller-Beatty

Scot grew up in Vermont and moved to Maine to attend the University of Southern Maine School of Music. After several years of teaching abroad, he found himself back in the great state of Maine for his final state-side teaching assignment. In his last year of teaching, Scot was asked to inn-sit for a couple going on vacation and that’s when he found his second calling—not only as an innkeeper but as a self-employed entrepreneur. In 2010, Scot purchased The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast and in 2016 started working with lodging properties across North America in his role of Director of Sales & Education at ThinkReservations.

Jason Fuller-Beatty

Since purchasing the inn, Scot met Jason, and they eventually wed in 2014. Jason loves music, plays guitar, and loves all things technology and moonlights as a Twitch content creator. He moved from Illinois to Maine in the fall of 2011 to try life on the East Coast and has fallen for New England’s charm. Always willing to help with a project at the inn, Jason’s day job is as a Senior Programmer at Tyler Technologies.

Erin Abraham

Erin Abraham

Erin came to The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast soon after moving to Portland in April of 2014 after nearly a decade of self-employment as a professional house cleaner and accomplished seamstress/designer. As the Managing Innkeeper, she basically runs the show managing the day-to-day operations and staff. She is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Theatrical Design. In May of 2016, Erin and her partner Zack welcomed their first child, Lilian.

Tracy Payne - Innkeeper

Tracy Payne

Tracy came onboard as the Assistant Innkeeper in 2020. She moved to Maine in 2006 and retired from the US Navy at Brunswick Navel Air Station in 2010. She is a graduate of the University of Southern Maine with a degree in Sociology. In her spare time, Tracy likes to read non-fiction, study astrology, attend live music performances, paint, and create artists’ books.

Ilsa Gruber

Ilsa Gruber

Ilsa joined The Chadwick team in June 2019 when she became the Resident Innkeeper. Having graduated from the Hotel School at Cornell, Ilsa feels right at home welcoming guests into The Chadwick. She loves getting to know our visitors and wants to make your stay comfortable! In Ilsa’s spare time, she enjoys running with the Runaways Run Club, trying new red wines, and playing with her Goldendoodle, Puddles.

Louie Giller

Louie Giller

In 2018, Louie joined the team and along with Ilsa (yes, they are a couple!) is a Resident Innkeeper helping all our guests overnight. He originally moved to Portland in 2017 to work for North Spore, a local gourmet mushroom company where he still works farmers markets and leads foraging classes. In his free time Louis loves to run, mountain bike, rock climb, and DJ for the community radio station, 90.9 WMPG. Most importantly, he enjoys cooking great food and creating a comfortable experience for our guests!

“What a beautiful inn and room! The breakfast was amazing and the staff was delightful. You really made us feel like part of the family! Tea on the porch was sunny and perfect. We can’t wait for our next stay!”

Green Initiatives

At our Portland bed and breakfast we take great pride in the part we play in protecting our environment. Our Portland, Maine inn is environmentally friendly and we are continually identifying ways in which we can improve our environmental impact, while at the same time pampering our guests with amenities. We shine in the areas of waste management, reduced energy demands, and water conservation.

How We Reduce, Reuse & Recycle

All of our business, personal, and guest non-organic waste is sorted for recycling. Recycling of plastics, glass, and metals has reduced landfill waste by 80% in the last five years. In our high season, we produce less than three 13-gallon trash bags of landfill waste for the entire week, after hosting 56 guests each week (8 guests per day x 7 days = 56)!

  • Composting all organic materials (including yard waste) in partnership with Garbage to Garden has reduced our landfill waste by approximately 1 ton each year.
  • SimpleHuman wall-mount pumps for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and refillable hand soap containers have eliminated the need for single-use disposable containers.
  • Eco-friendly air freshener. Instead of chemicals and synthetic fragrances, we opt for 100% essential oils and non-aerosol scents which reduces and/or eliminates allergic reactions.
  • All guest rooms feature low-flow toilets, shower heads, and sinks along with all walk-in showers, which has reduced our water consumption by 50%.
  • Light bulbs have all been replaced with low-energy LED bulbs.
  • We encourage our guests to reuse towels and linens throughout their stay. They are changed every three days, by request, or upon check-out.
  • As towels and linens are replaced they are donated to local charities and organizations.
  • Eco-friendly and durable (yet extremely comfortable) sheets and pillowcases by Comphy. Also, available for order… just ask us!
  • Solar path lighting for guest safety at night.
  • All guest communications all done via email, phone, or text message, making us 100% paper-free.
  • Fresh Drip Coffee: Coffee pod waste is a leading source of single-use plastic waste. All our coffee supplies are provided and brewed locally by Carrabassett Coffee Company.

 

How Guests Can Help

  • Sort your trash into our recycling and composting areas to help reduce waste. You can do this in-room for recycling. Compost is located in the dining room.
  • Reduce your water consumption by reusing your towels for multiple days, requesting to keep the same sheets during your stay, and turning off the bathroom faucet while brushing your teeth.
  • Conserve your energy consumption by turning off room lights, TVs, fireplaces, and/or air conditioners while you are away from the inn.

Our Eco-Friendly Efforts Have Been Recognized!

Our eco-friendly efforts have helped us achieve a number of recognitions within the lodging industry. Most recently, Yankee Magazine recognized The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast with an Editor’s Choice Award for Best Eco-Friendly Lodging 2019 in the May/June issue.

Since 2013, TripAdvisor has recognized The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast with their GreenLeader Award status. We currently hold a Gold Achievement level—the highest for Portland, Maine.
