We stayed at Phineas Swann after a long day of biking around Vermont. The inn was so comfortable and relaxing after such a hard day. Our hosts were warm and friendly. Our room, in a separate house in the rear of the property, was very quiet. Something very nice that the inn does is have snacks available around the clock... More

Thank you for such a flattering review! We so enjoy the guests who come to our area in the summer to cycle, hike and enjoy the beautiful scenery here at the top of Vermont. We also appreciate that you go to enjoy the great complimentary snacks and Vermont beers we offer. We look forward to seeing you again! More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW

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

My husband and I recently spent a few days at The Phineas Swann B&B Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

We travelled from Toronto to Cape Breton and stayed in eight B&B's/Inns. Some were lovely and others were standard. Phineas and Swann was neither of these. This exquisite place was outstanding.

We spent one night there, a Thursday night, to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. They upgraded us to the Honeymoon Suite. The Inn provides snacks and drinks in the room and in several places in the main house. I enjoyed using the outdoor hot tub. While the price is quite high it seems in line with the environment provided. The... More

We enjoyed a very nice 2 night stay in the somewhat dark but still comfortable Bull Dog Suite. We would have preferred a bit more access to fresh air as there's no cross ventilation available. But the ceiling fans and air conditioner worked fine. Breakfasts are good and bountiful. The innkeepers friendly and helpful. Us dogs are truly welcomed!

Thanks for your feedback and review! The Bulldog suite is one of our larger suites, and some guests find the privacy inviting, while others like yourself long for more windows. It's always a tough balancing act. During your next stay, consider our Green Mountain Suite. It's layout is identical to the two-bedroom Bulldog Suite, but is filled with large picture... 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...

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
