Very good experience here. Hosts were very accommodating. Food was very good. I would come back. A quick walk to local hiking and a longer walk to the stores in town. The room was comfortable, too. Nice little town.

We booked the tranquility room which was indeed very tranquil as we needed. The best feature of this place is the very good spirit of its owners. Neil and his wife/partner were both very kind to us. They came and picked us up at the station and they made everything they could to make our stay memorable. We fell in... More

My husband and I stayed in the red room, which was one of the coolest little rooms I've ever stayed in, and the first things I noticed were all the sweet little details.There are so many hidden swans, little porcelain shoes, beautiful floral antique tea cups and lots of little ideas to make your stay comfortable.

My wife and I stayed two nights for our anniversary, and had a great time. The Swann Inn is a quaint country home, with a porch to sit and a nice common room to enjoy a book.

I'm sorry to give this low review to Swann Inn, because the innkeeper was very nice. But we had an inconsistent set of experiences, and I want to leave an honest review. We would not stay here again.
