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

The Swann Inn was one of the few places in the Hudson Valley that had two weekend nights available during peak fall foliage time with only 10 days notice. This did make me a bit nervous BUT I should not have been. The Blue Room was lovely, the bed was very toasty warm and comfortable, and the bathroom was actually... More

We stayed at the Inn for a night recently and had a wonderful time. Darlene greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful and welcoming, and Neil took care of breakfast the next morning. He was so friendly and accommodating, even driving us to the MTA station! The room (green) was very comfortable and a really nice blend of... More
