Derrick and Lynne were responsible for the most wonderful venue and outcome for our daughter's wedding. Their attention to detail to make this event one that her and her husband, and all that joined us, a most memorable one. They were attentive to our needs and helped us when we looked lost! The food was amazing with scrumptious breakfast entries.... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2016

My Wife and I stayed in the Honeymoon Suite around the end of January. The room is exactly as shown in the pictures. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat and things to do. They have an outside hot tub just steps from the room. It being January in Northern Vermont, I was skeptical of going... More

We had the Green Mountain Room, which was by far the best room. It had great lighting from the sun coming through a beautiful stained glass window. Two bedrooms: one with a very high queen size bed which was extremely comfortable and another with two individual beds (perfect for children/individual friends to stay with you) It was a very comfortable...

Thank you so much for your flattering review! We're glad you got to enjoy the Green Mountain Suite - one of our most popular rooms. It's very popular with families (kids LOVE it when they see they don't have to share a bed with their siblings!) and the spacious living room with flat-screen TV and gas-log fireplace is an excellent...

We stayed for one night and found the accommodations and the locale to be pleasing. We loved the bathroom design, though we wished for some kind of hook in the shower enclosure. The rooms and common areas are decorated with a flair for detail and thematic value. The rooms in the hotel, to be fair are maybe a bit undersized--,... More

Thanks for the extremely kind words! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at our Trout River Suite in the River House, and I know future guests will appreciate your tips. Dog owners with stair-phobic dogs probably should chose the first-floor Black Bear Suite. That said, the new staircase is far safer and less treacherous than the old one we replaced... More

We headed up north to Vermont to steal away from everyday life and this B&B was the perfect choice! The hosts were wonderful, the room was great and the location was amazing - mountains and water everywhere! We will definitely be back!

Thanks for taking the time to stay with us and enjoying the top of Vermont! It's a little bit more of a drive than staying in the southern end of the state, but the beauty, natural wonders and fun activities certainly make it worth the extra 90 minute drive! More

I'm not one to write reviews, but the Phineas Swann certainly deserves a great one, and I'd feel guilty if I didn't make the effort to give them the kudos they so deserve.

Where to start? You compliment our obsession with cleanliness - There's no better way to get to Lynne's heart. She obsesses on making sure everything is spotless and clean, so we're glad it's noticed. You thanked us for the snacks, sodas, homemade cookies and other goodies. We always like to do those little free extras that make people feel especially... More

You got to come on a great weekend! We're always surprised more people don't spend their 4th of Julys in our small little mountain town. It's much less crowded than the beach, much cooler, and the smalltown America feel you get from our Fourth of July Parade and the charity barbecue that follows is unique and unforgettable.
