Thank you Lynne & Darren & staff for taking such wonderful care of the three of us; two adults & one dog. What a lovely slice of Vermont. This town is a bit out of the way and very rural, but is close enough to Jay Peak, Canada and other sites to make it just perfect. We have stayed in... More

This was my first B&B experience, and it exceeded my expectations! Lynne & Darren really go above and beyond to make us feel at home. It is only 1 hour from the Ben & Jerry's Factory tour, nestled in a cozy town in Northern Vermont. It is also only a short 1.5 hour drive to cross the border and visit... More

Thanks so much for the compliments! We have so many prospective guests who never visit us because they think "you're too far a drive" or "there's nothing nearby to see." We're so glad you dispelled that myth. From Ben & Jerry's to Montreal to Jay Peak to great trails, lakes and attractions, everything's just a short drive from our door.... More

From the time we arrived to the time we had to say goodbye, we loved it. From the warm welcome to the outstanding breakfasts we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. The Bulldog Suite was perfect for our group of four. Thanks to Lynn & Darren...we WILL be back!

Came on our yearly trip to place flowers on family graves in Montgomery Center and Richford with my 85 year old mother-in-law and her 91 year old sister. We had stayed here with the previous owners and new the rooms were great. What we didn't know was how great the service and "extras"would be with the new innkeepers. Looking forward... More

My wife and I decided to come out to Vermont for our Honeymoon since we could do all of the the things we love out there with it's gorgeous scenery.

We love the fact that the two of you and your pup came all the way from California just to enjoy the Phineas Swann, and all the great activities we offer here at the top of Vermont. You two certainly got a great smorgasbord of fun during your stay, with kayaking, cycling, hiking, walking along the Trout River in our... More

This place is cute and welcoming and all around really really nice. We were looking for a cozy country B&B feel and were not disappointed. I scored huge brownie points with the lady for booking this one. Highly recommended.

We visited this area to give us access to some great hiking and biking (and we found it). What we got as an amazing bonus, was not just a nice place to stay, but an incredible place to stay. We decided to bring along our medium-size dog and she was treated like royalty, just like we were. We loved the... More

Upon arrival to the B&B we were immediately struck by how pleasant and attrractive the location was. Being a slightly larger group (six in total including one couple) the accommodation logistics could have been a little challenging. However, the owners, did a fantastic job in situating our group in a format that made sense and comfortable for us all. Due... More

Thanks for the compliments, Phil. We enjoyed having your cycling group and only regret we got to enjoy your company for one evening. But you make a good point for groups thinking of staying at the Phineas: We're a B&B and people think just two-person rooms. And while we have three of those in our Main House, with our one-... More

Lynn and Darren are the best hostess and host. They make you feel right at home. The breakfasts are delicious and all the added touches, cookies, wine and very good coffee. The only problem was that our time was way too short. Will be back again and of course will promote a trip to Vermont and a stay at the... More

Thanks for the compliments and for being our guest. We're glad you enjoyed the coffee, cookies and wine (what a great combination - my favorite!).

Wasn't sure what to expect from an inn so far North in Vermont. The front of the in was very pleasing. I especially liked the sleigh. The owners were extremely nice and willing to give advice on what to see in the area. We brought our dogs and they loved swimming/wading into the stream, had trouble keeping them out. So... More

We're happy you enjoyed your stay and the gourmet breakfast we make here every morning. Don't worry about rating our "pool." While we don't have a pool, we have a great mountain stream with nearby swimming holes that are a blast to swim in. And of course, we have our outdoor hot tub right between the Main House and Carriage... More
