Stayed in the terrier room. Gorgeous and comfortable 4 poster bed, iron-stove, private bath, and many extras. Wife sat and knitted in the living room with a local knitting group. Breakfasts were awesome. Special care to treat us right. Enjoyed the stay with Darren & Lynn.

Stayed at the Phineas Swann mid-week to catch some great skiing at Jay. We try to always travel at off-peak times to avoid crowds and this was no exception. I usually pick larger resort type hotels to stay at, due to my bull in a china shop partner, but i was dying to mix it up with a cute and... More

Perfect accommodations to accompany a fabulous two days of skiing at Jay! Attentive and helpful staff, very comfortable room, hearty breakfast to start the ski day, within walking distance of several restaurants, discount lift tickets, and an idyllic hot-tub under the stars for weary muscles.

Thanks so much for the glowing review of your stay! We have so many people this time of year discovering what a joy it is to avoid the chaos of staying in a room at the ski resort and instead staying at our quiet, relaxing B&B. We make sure everyone get's a traditional, gourmet breakfast before the head the short... More

We just got back from a great weekend at Phineas Swann. This place has to be the nicest and most romantic B&B that accepts dogs- ever. Highlights for me were the blueberry stuffed pancakes and playing scrabble by the roaring fire. The innkeepers Lynne and Darren are lovely and accommodating. The inn itself is beautiful. Can't wait to go back... More

This was our first stay at a B&B and this place didn't disappoint. After speaking with other guests, it sets the bar fairly high for B&B's. The owners and staff are friendly, great and helpful. Breakfast is served every morning. There are snacks and beverages (water, coffee, tea, hot chocolate) available all day long. Wine and beer are available for... More

We're so glad your first visit to a B&B was so awesome. So many of our first-time guests tell us they were afraid of staying at a B&B, because they pictured staying at grandma's house and not a more contemporary, high-tech and fun place! We wish everyone would do what you did and give us a try. Like you, they... More

This is our first time. We were two couples and one dog. We were there for 3-nights (starting 12/30), skiing at Jay Peak and celebrating the New Year. We stayed in the Green Room and our friends stayed in the Black Bear Suite. The women loved their stay. It was cozy, clean, great décor, the B&B (wife/husband) hosts & owners... More

Hank, thank you so much for your glowing review of your stay at the Phineas Swann. We loved having you and your family here for New Year's. Your grand description of the Green Mountain Suite and all it's extras was better than our own! we hope we get to host you and your family again soon. Happy New Year! More

We were very impressed with the inn. Our calls were returned promptly, and the owners guided us to the right room for our family. The suite had plenty of room for a family of 4 people. Breakfast was excellent, and the little extras (free soda, free afternoon cookies) are nice touches. The hot tub worked very well. Also, the B&B... More

Thanks so much for your 5-star review. We're glad you enjoyed the little extras we provide! We're glad you think Lynne & I do all the tasks, but to be fair we have a great team of housekeepers, cooks and a handyman who work behind the scenes to make things seem effortless. They take it as a compliment that their... More

From the minute we arrived to the minute we checked out, this was a fabulous experience. This is the 1st time we have stayed in a Bed and Breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by Darren when we arrived and were brought up to our room which was very cute and cozy. Anything that we needed while we... More

"I've never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before!" You guys are the kind of guests we love - those making their first stay in a B&B, and discovering how wonderful they are compared to more impersonal hotels. We love spoiling our guests, providing snacks, drinks, wi-fi, long distance for free -- all the things hotel chains charge extra for.... More

The sign at the entry of our suite gave the idea about the way pets are treated there: "Pets welcome, people tolerated". Our pet (bulldog mix with a passion for couches and pillows) was indeed very welcome and spent the vacation in total comfort on the pillows of her choice, which in turn allowed us to relax knowing that the...

Thanks for the great review! We're firm believers that dogs and their owners both deserve a great vacation. We enjoy treating our guests to great meals (you were fortunate to experience one of our dinners - our next formal dinner won't be until our Farm-To-Table Dinners start in July). We're also glad you found the Black Bear Suite in our... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the Honeymoon Suite with our two dogs. This really is a pet friendly B&B! They had beds, bowls and towels for their paws ready and a supply of baggies on the deck.
