We wanted to see some beautiful fall colors in the mountains, shop for antiques, dine out and this place was "PERFECT". Lynne and Darren (The Owners) were fabulous .....gave us maps, suggestions, recommendations and things couldn't have gone better. We even squeezed in a ride to the top of Jay Peak which was gorgeous. The nearby restaurants were great. The... More

Thanks, PandD! We enjoyed hosting you guys and having some lovely conversations during your stay! Thanks for mentioning the personalized suggestions of things to do, the great restaurants here in Montgomery Center/Jay Peak, the fact that we're obsessive-compulsive about cleanliness, and our beautiful gardens. We hope to see you both again soon! More

A lovely, romantic place, and so very kind and accommodating for pets. We stayed in one of the carriage house suites, with the tallest, plushest bed we've ever seen. We arrived very late and the room was waiting for us, lights on and music playing. They had even left snacks out for us in the foyer, a godsend as everywhere... More

Great place for hiking, biking, trailing, and running, during off season; also it looks like snow season is good. Good people loved it, great food, enjoyed getting away, from city life; plus cell phone did not work. It was great to get away.

Glad you got to enjoy all the great activities in our area! We have guests that love that their cell phones don't work while visiting us, but it's worth reminding everyone that we have free long distance phones in every room for those who need to stay plugged in. Coupled with our wifi, you can be as connected as you... More

We decided to travel from Texas to Vermont to get married. While making preparations and calling different inns in the green mountain state, the Phineas Swann stuck out as number one in service. Lynne was a great help in planning our special day, our stay and accommodating our needs. Once we arrived we got the grand tour and felt right... More

We had a great weekend even though the weather wasn't so great. The Innkeepers were wonderful hosts. The food was made from TLC. One of the few places that not only welcomes wet dogs, they welcome them with clean dry towels too. A great place to call Home Base when you are in that neck of the woods. We look... More

Thanks for the compliments, Barry! You make some great suggestions to future guests. Every room IS different, and sometimes folks looking at our PhineasSwann.com website have difficulty chosing! It helps to know that the Main House (Red, Green & Blue rooms) have traditional B&B rooms and are the only non-petfriendly rooms. Our Carriage House suites (Honeymoon, Bulldog, Green Mountain &...

My partner and I stayed with our dog, a beagle mix, in the Trout River Suite. It was a beautiful room overlooking the river. The breakfast in the AM was overall good food and good service (more egg options maybe in future?). Our dog had a blast and the property is VERY pet friendly. There are good restaurants in the...

Thanks so much for the feedback! We love it when people like yourself who've stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts tell us we're the best B&B experience they've every had. It also thrills us when first-timers get to experience how a B&B is superior to any hotel stay. We're glad the three of you had such a good stay! We... More

We spent two nights in the honeymoon suite with our dog and it was fabulous. The grounds of the inn are so welcoming and tranquil. One could sit for hours just enjoying the birds, chipmunks and beauty. We love that we can go somewhere very nice with our dog. He also enjoyed the place and the loving that's hard to... More

We just spent a weekend at the Phineas Swan with friends and had a wonderful time. Nestle in a small Vermont village with great restaurants and lovey scenery. This is more like an Inn than a Bed and breakfast and be warned that due to Vermont liquor laws you are not allowed to bring your own liquor into the Inn.... More

Thank you for all the compliments about us, and we're glad you enjoyed your stay at the Phineas Swann! We're glad you agree our beer prices ($3 a bottle regardless of brand) and wine prices (ranging from $8 to $25 a bottle) are so reasonable.
