“What a cozy place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2007

This was my first time at a bed and breakfast and I was extremely delighted with my experience at the Phineas Swann. The different rooms were each decorated to perfection and were not only aestetically pleasing, but were as comfortable as my own home! All the antigues give the place a very cozy feeling, and I certainly can't forget the delicious homeade breakfasts! It is apparent that John and Jay love what they do and take pride in how they run this Inn. They were wonderful hosts and I can honestly say I look foward to returning.

  • Liked — The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was delicilous!
  • Disliked — There wasn't a shelf or anything in the bathroom to put my toiletries on.

My fiance and I wanted a nice romantic place to stay that was close to skiing in Jay Peak and that we could bring our small dog. Wow! Were we happy we found the Phineas Swann Inn!!!
The inn keepers were extremely attentive and friendly. It was immaculately clean and charming! The breakfasts were delicious - big hearty meal that was perfect to keep us going while skiing on the mountain. We stayed in one of the suites and our dog loved the doggie bed they had set up for her and the treats they gave her. The inn keepers have really thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! The bed was great and the down comforters and linens were dreamy. The hot tub was right outside our room - we enjoyed going in at night and looking up at the stars! We will definitely return to the Phineas Swann Inn!!!

Phineas Swann is the most comfortable, lovely, friendly and enjoyable B&B I've ever stayed in. Jay and John are wonderful hosts; the breakfast was delightful; the atmosphere is elegant, eclectic and completely kick-your-shoes-off relaxing. Beautifully decorated and just a terrific place to stay. It was a treat! And they're doggie-friendly!

  • Liked — Incredibly comfortable, beautifully and creatively decorated
  • Disliked — I couldn't live there forever!

Far enough from home but didn't take all day to get there. Located near fabulous winter activities for daytime adventure (snow shoeing, alpine skiing). Ideally situated "in town" so you can walk to dinner then come back for a late night hot tub. Delicious breakfasts, plenty of snacks and lots of little extras from the terry robes and flip flops, to the in-room DVD players, complimentary phones and internet access. Plenty of privacy, as much interaction with other guests and the inkeepers as you wanted, and interesting decor, reading material, and overall comfort to make you want to come back!

I would strongly recommend the Phineas Swann B&B for any couple! The home was beautifully decoratated and the perfect setting for a weekend getaway. Location, owners, breakfast, intenet, hot tub, dvd collection - all pluses. Looking forward to going back!

Jay and John are tremendous hosts. All aspects of our stay at the Phineas Swann exceeded our expectations. From a bountiful gourmet Christmas dinner to the most comfortable room we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. If you are in Northern Vermont this is truly a destination not to be missed.
