We stayed at Phineas Swann with our two children over Easter weekend. Great breakfast, wonderful hosts, nice rooms, nice amenities, pet-friendly. Make sure you ask for descriptions of the rooms. We stayed in the Green Mountain Room, which has empty space between the walls of the bedrooms, which restricted privacy. It worked for us, though, and it was a beautiful... More

Thank you so much for the great feedback and compliments! Your family (and your darling dog Oreo) were wonderful. You've highlighted the key difference in our two 2-bedroom suites which will help future guests decide between the two: Our Green Mountain Suite where you stayed is a little more contemporary in design, but has open vaulted ceilings between the two...

My husband and I stayed on the top floor of the river house for a family wedding. Our room was warm and cozy despite the chilly VT temps! Lynne and Darren cooked amazing breakfasts both days and were very accommodating of different dietary needs. They went above and beyond to make the family feel welcome for the weekend. The B&B...

Thank you so much for the compliments. As you mentioned, we host a number of small weddings from elopements all the way up to 75-guest affairs. We're glad spring is here and our weddings will move from our scenic Vermont Room outdoors into our lovely gardens! We hope to see you again soon! More

We had an awesome stay at Phineas Swann. Darren was incredibly welcoming and helpful in every way. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the room and accommodations were perfect. We really had a great time at PS and plan to come back.

It's always great to stay at the Phineas! The beds are so comfortable, the breakfasts are so delicious and the fireplace room is nice to relax after a day of skiing at Jay Peak.

My recent stay at this Inn in northern Vermont was amazing. Pre-visit I received a call from one of the lovely Inn-Keepers, Lynne to find out if I had any special dietary needs. Revealing a gluten intolerance, I was very excited to find GF cookies ready for me upon arrival. I thought the concept of a dog friendly B&B was... More

Our suite was extremely quiet, which we really appreciated. The breakfasts were delicious and generous. We enjoyed the hot tub. The hosts were friendly and personable. We arrived very late, which was well accommodated, but the pullout bed for the kids did not have sheets and there were no sheets to be found in the suite. The kids slept without... More

Very nice couple hosting. Very comfortable and clean place overall. Country style decoration with good taste. Delicious breakfast. Nice selection of wines to drink while relaxing in the lounge (more than decent charge for a glass). Highly recommended for anybody who wants to relax and find a quiet comfortable place while enjoying Jay Peak.

Thank you for your very kind review. We're especially glad you enjoyed our decor and approved of the wine selections we make available for our guests. We've worked hard to develop a list of fine wines two steps above what you might find at a local grocery store or market, but still quite affordable by the bottle or glass. We... More

We're very sorry your experience didn't meet up to your expectations and you felt misled. Unlike most hotels and almost all B&Bs, we do not charge a fee for guests for their first pet. We do allow guests to sleep with their pets and have them on the beds, but do have to charge a $75 cleaning fee for that... More
