My husband and I decided on a family elopement wedding in November, found Phineas Swann online and they had the best package for the price. The wedding was December 20th. Everything was done online and over the phone, but when we got to the inn, we were taken by Lynne and Darren, the nicest and most genuine people. The inn... More

My husband and I stayed in the Terrier suite from 12/15-12/18 and it was an amazing stay. We brought our little special needs pup with us and Darren and Lynne couldn't be anymore accommodating especially with our dog! He was having horrible anxiety the first day staying in the travel crate we brought with us and as soon as we... More

This was the third stay at the Phineas Swann for my husband, our dog, and me. It was the first time staying under the ownership of Lynne and Darren. Everything was exceptional. We stayed in the Bulldog Suite which was very comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. The weather was nice and we enjoyed siting by the Trout River and on... More

We're so happy you had such an excellent stay! We've had so many guests who've stayed at the Phineas Swann under previous owners (we're actually the fourth set of owners for this historic B&B) and it makes us especially happy when we're told we've met and even exceeded the service levels of our predecessors. We're glad you enjoyed our new... More

The best bed and breakfast we have ever visited, in the US and abroad. Delightful people (Darren, Lynne, and staff) and every need was anticiapted. I don't know what else anyone could want from a bnb. We did not have time to get to the hot tub, or light a fire by the river, or sit in the screened-in gazebo,... More

Thanks for the amazing compliment, Paul! Best B&B you've ever visited! We're pretty humbled by that! We hope you get a chance to try some of the things you didn't have time to enjoy this trip - hot tub, fire pit by the river, gazebo, gardens, fireplace room, etc. We are thrilled you got to enjoy our blackberry-stuffed french toast....

Truly the most beautiful and charmingly decorated B&B we've ever stayed in! Cannot say enough about their hospitality! From having a warm fire going for our late arrival along with the easy listening music to the wide variety of snacks and beverages for the late night munchies, we truly felt we were at our home away from home.

Can't say enough about this wonderful place. The Inn is lovely, the rooms tastefully appointed, and the morning breakfasts are delightful. But the real gem here is the warm welcome and care you receive from the gracious hosts, who will suggest hikes and drives for you, send you to wonderful local eating spots, and really make you feel at home....

We're so glad your decision for a last-minute getaway brought you to our door!
