Loved our stay here! So comfortable, and every detail was just right. Yummy breakfasts, personal attention, beautiful environment, comfy beds...a perfect combination of amenities and charm. We were in the area for my brother's memorial, and Darren was thoughtful enough to save a copy of the local paper for us, which had my brother's obituary. We stayed in one of... More

High cozy beds. Personal attention. Superior breakfasts, fresh bottled milk, muffins, elegant table settings, times to get breakfast approximately 7 to 9:30. I was met with a freshly brewed cup of coffee by Darren each morning. A ton of snacks and wine options in the main room. Fire in the fireplace. Sublime.

We had a great stay here, felt like we were at home and had a great breakfast in the morning at beautifully set tables. The rooms were clean and accommodating and the hot tub was very inviting! The tea selection was the best part! The owners were so helpful in giving advice for thugs to do in the area or... More

We stayed three night at Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast in Montgomery, just 15 minutes away from Jay Peak with our two teenagers. It was just perfect and the nicest place we found uptil now in Vermont: excellent quality/price. The appartment/studio was very clean, warm and comfortable, our host Barb, just lovely and attentive, the breakfast excellent. We loved the... More

Incredibly comfortable and relaxing pet friendly accommodations, but most important, the owners leave no stone un-turned when it comes to making sure you have a wonderful experience!

Wow! My partner and I had wanted to do a little exploring in the far reaches of Vermont and decided to head toward Jay Peak and found Phineas Swann. Everything was perfect. Our room was a small slice of heaven tastefully decorated, comfortable and spacious enough for us to settle right in, questioning if we even wanted to venture out... More

Kathryn, thank you so much for your review. If we could say just two things to prospective guests, it would be what you mentioned: That just because you're traveling with a four-legged family member doesn't mean you're going to get a lesser room. And for those traveling without pets, your room is going to be comfortable, clean, spacious and welcoming... More

We were able to "get away" and yet enjoy all the comforts of home at the same time. The main house, decorated beautifully for the holidays, smelled of pine. We loved the decor, abundant snacks, yummy homemade cookies, varieties of tea, and the large collection of DVDs. Our Honeymoon Suite contained everything we needed to unwind - TV, DVD player,...

We're so glad you enjoyed your escape to the top of Vermont! We have so many guests who come here not for the awesome skiing, or great hiking trails, or shopping or scenery, but rather just to "decompress" from their day-to-day. We're glad our snacks, comfy beds, hot tub, great restaurants and DVD library gave you both a chance to... More

Low key time to stay during "stick season". Really enjoyed the spacious and comfortable Green Mountain Suite, sitting and relaxing by the fire in the main inn and of course the breakfast was excellent as usual. Friendly innkeepers Lynne & Darren are very accommodating. Looking forward to returning during the ski season!

A very nice, relaxing B&B where your four legged friend is treated like royalty. But I am getting ahead of myself. The Inn is conviently located to Jay Peak, which is about 8 miles up the road and Stowe is about 1 hour south. There is a supermarket as well as two good places to eat within walking distance (5...

Thanks for the incredibly detailed review. You've done a great job outlining to our future guests all the extras we have waiting for them. One clarification: We do charge for beer and wine ($3 a bottle and $5 a glass, respectively) but the sodas are free, along with the snacks and even our homemade cookies! We're glad you found us...
