Great Rooms and wonderful Inn Keepers Neil and Darlene, We stayed in the Tranquility Suite so we could bring our dog. It was perfect. They even put out some treats for Fiona at Breakfast. Food was delicious.

What a lovely B&B....Neil and Darlene could not be more helpful and the breakfasts are to die for. Coffee and cookies available all day, and there's a pretty garden and porch with rockers to enjoy the sun. A delightful, intriguing house, and we loved our stay here - excellent wi-fi connection too.

Thanks to Darlene and Neil for a lovely weekend - it was exactly what we needed: a long weekend in the country, convenient to MetroNorth, healthy walking distance to town, and dog-friendly for well-behaved dogs! Located literally a block from Mt. Beacon and several blocks from the Hudson shore and Main Street, this is a nice place to relax. Our... More

On a get-outta-the-city trip found this place online and booked it. Neil was super nice and came to pick me up at the station, (he even waited for 30 mins coz my train got delayed). He took me around beacon on our way, and helped me mark the places I should check out. The Inn is simple and just perfect!... More

I stayed at the Swann Inn with three of my friends for a birthday. We shared the Tranquility Suite which could accommodate a maximum of 6 people and had a little kitchenette. The Swann Inn looks so pretty - all twinkling lights and homely furniture. There's a table with tea, coffee and snacks 24 hours a day. The hosts are... More

This is a perfect Victorian hideaway at the foot of Mt. Beacon, with cozy private en suite rooms and friendly hosts. Neil and Darlene were very accommodating, and made delicious breakfasts - starting our days on a very high note. Highly, highly recommended!

We just had our second visit to The Swann Inn! We love it here! Neil picks us up from the train station and Darlene makes the BEST Gluten free waffles and pancakes we have ever had! They both are very welcoming and the rooms are warm, beautiful, and cozy. They always go above and beyond to make sure we are... More

My wife and I wanted to celebrate her birthday (and found we also needed a break from the kids and the holiday madness). We just didn't want to bust the bank. We knew that eliminating car rental (taking the train) would be a great way to keep costs down, but we could not find a single B + B w/... More

I travelled to Beacon for business, and because it was late autumn, cool and dark early, it could have been a bit lonely being on my own. But Neal and Darlene were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. I stayed four nights in the Green Willow room which was cozy. Breakfast was tasty and generous. As others have mentioned, Neal assists... More

I spent two nights and three days at the Swann Inn of Beacon just before Halloween. I was picked up at the train station and welcomed with open arms. The grounds are beautiful and very peaceful. The breakfasts were scrumptious and I'd definitely go again! But, most of all, Neil and Darlene Caplan are charming and make the experience a... More
