We had a wonderful stay at the Swann Inn. It was great for a little weekend getaway to Beacon. Owner Neil picked us up from the train station and made us feel right at home. The house is charming and well decorated and our room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Green Room, and our bed was just right. [Based on a Sept 2010 review here, I'm guessing that we were the first guests to enjoy the new bed after an earlier guest had concerns about the older bed. Kudos to the owners to responding so quickly to the prior guest's comments]. Neil gave us some good advice about the area and was always ready to help. The breakfast was fresh, hearty and declicious, and was served in a pretty dining room with large bay windows.
We didn't have a car. The Inn is located about a ten minute walk from town and a five minute walk from hiking trails. The Dia is probably a 20-30 minute walk, and Neil was happy to give us a lift when he was heading out.
It was the perfect place for a last minute getaway from the city. As B&B travelers know, it is often the little things that make a difference. The warmth and friendliness of the owners, coupled with the charm of the house and a great breakfast, made the Swann Inn a great find for us.
