It was like the American version of Little Britain. Every nook and crannyis full of knick knacks, overstuffed furniture, and Christmas decorations. That was all fine, and the room and bathroom were lovely. It was comfortable if overwhelming.... BUT...the guest service is very strange. Here are a couple of highlights: I helped myself to some of the range of cereal... More

We stayed at this beautiful home over New Year's Eve. The Swann Inn has great proximity to downtown Beacon restaurants, Dia museum, and local hiking (all skill levels). Best pancakes I've ever had! Highly recommended.

I highly recommend the Swann Inn. The B and B was beautiful, quiet and had great food and great service. The owners were very nice and helpful with all requests. The room was very clean and very spacious. The breakfast was so good and service wonderful. I would definitely go back there and recommend it highly.

We loved our stay here. The inn itself is a beautiful, historic home dating from the end of the War between the States, circa 1865. Darlene and Neil were most accommodating and made us the most delicious breakfast of multi grain pancakes, preceded by fresh local fruit and Darlene's own Colada sherbet. Our room was cute and had all the... More

We very much enjoyed the low key hospitality and accomodations. Breakfast was excellent and The Willow Room quite comfortable. We were the only guests on a Thursday night and were treated very well by the innkeepers, who work hard to keep up the place single (or double) handedly. It's not as "fancied-up" a place as some might like, but it... More

So this is a bit quirky. Run by a very pleasant couple who, unlike the other B&Bs we have stayed in, seem to run the show on their own without help. We appreciate how difficult it is to keep up, but it does show it's wear and tear and could use a bit more attention. The bed in green willow... More

We like to thank you for your comments, as they are important to us. The Swann Inn of Beacon is a small Bed and Breakfast and therefore we have to do all of the work.

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.
