This is really a tail of two B&Bs. Was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The rooms appear clean and the breakfast was very good and the owners very helpful and accommodating. However, we stayed in the end of May and it was very, very hot outside... the rooms had no air conditioning and it must have been over 90 in the rooms at night - the upstairs was a good 10 degrees warmer than the downstairs - hence the revised name from Swann and sauna to the Swauna Inn. Also, two of the rooms upstairs share a bathroom which is not convenient. As others have mentioned, the outside of the home needs some work but the inside is well kept.
