We arrived quite late to the inn after a long day of sight seeing and eating far too much cheese. Jay greeted us after we had a moment to set our bags down and attempt to take it all in. The sheer ammount of porcelain figurines and antiques were quite a sight to behold. Jay took us on a short tour of the first floor and the seemed genuinely sad that he could not take us out on the grounds as it was very dark when we arrived, the next morning I could see why, it was beautiful. Jay then took us upstairs and showed us our room. The room was beautiful and comfy.

I got to meet John also and he was equally as helpful as Jay. Our two servers Gwen and Karen also helped to make this trip something we will not forget. Thank you John, Jay, Gwen and Karen. We will certainly see you again!

The Inn is set in the beautiful mountains of Vermont, it is quaint, homely , warm and friendly. The staff is great, helpful, and make you feel at home. I actually miss those folks, they became friends without being intrusive or invasive. We went to get married, along with our pastor, his spouse & a very good friend. All of us walked away impressed with the great breakfast, the amazing brownies, and the overall hospitality. We felt at home, sat in the fluffy couches, played in the river out back, and enjoyed the fire pit and the lovely gazebo. Emmie & Karen made our stay extra special with their lovely smiles and willingness to help. It's rustic, & your forced to relax due to no cell service unless you drive to the mobil station due to the mountains, the rooms are kind of small but completely comfortable. I still miss the fluffy comforter. Over all, the experience was wonderful & we hope to go back for our first anniversary.

We recently spent a lovely weekend enjoying the fall foliage in Vermont, and spent two very pleasant nights at the Phineas Swann B&B . Our room was in the Carriage House and was truly lovely; the bed was enormous and soooo comfy, and the room was came with all kinds of creature comforts including a flat screen TV, gas fireplace and a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, as well as a nice selection of coffees, teas and beverages. The main house is gorgeous and welcoming, with beautiful antiques and literally thousands of whimsical dog figurines. Which of course reminds me: our little dachshund, Emmy, was welcome at Phineas Swann and also had a wonderful time. The owners, Jay and John, could not have been more friendly and accommodating and their staff - Emmy, Karen and Gwen - were terriffic. The breakfasts were amazing - blueberry pancakes one morning, strawberry waffles the next; the selection of freshly baked cookies, muffins and brownies on hand in the living room made a wonderful late-night snack. Thanks for a special weekend we will not forget - and we hope to return soon!

This place was just great! They did all the little things that make all the difference. The owners, John and Jay, should be proud of the way they, and their staff, treat the guests. The little things they provide, such as morning conversation, assistance with plans for the day, home baked goods, coffee, pet sitting and so on, goes such a long way. You just do not see this kind of hospitality anywhere. The staff, Emmy, Karen and Gwen were just so friendly they made you feel like family. The rooms were very clean and included lots of extras such as a stocked refrigerator and coffee machines with flavored coffees. Upon leaving this B&B, John and Jay gave me fresh made muffins for the road. What can I say...I can't wait to go back!

We stayed at the Phinneas Swann for the weekend of September 18-20 and it has been our greatest Bed and Breakfast experience ever. Sometimes it is hard to travel with your pet, but John, Jay, and the entire staff go above and beyond any expectations to ensure your pet is welcomed. Not only are there pet beds with rawhides, cookie jars filled with treats, the entire B&B is dog friendly. When we went hiking, they offered to watch our dog Sable for the day--treating her like their own with no extra costs. Being pet friendly, one might expect the accomodations to be less than desirable. This is most certainly not true. The rooms are clean, elegant, warm, and inviting. They provide all the ammenities of home so if you want to just jump in the car and go--you could literally just go there with the clothes on your back. They have thought of everything. The breakfasts were amazing. The friendly staff, especially Emmy and Karen, go out of their way to greet you and ensure your stay is enjoyable. Cannot wait to go back for ski season. Thanks for everything. Doug and Margaret
