We stayed at the Phineas Swann for our honeymoon in February and brought our dog with us. The entire stay was wonderful! Daryn, Lynne and Barb were so kind and welcoming to us and the service was phenomenal. Comfy beds, good food, good drinks and a great environment. We have already booked our next trip to the Phineas Swann. We...

From the moment we entered the main building, Darren welcomed us and gave us a tour of the main house and then the grounds and finally our room. Lynne and Barb also made us feel at home. Our room had a king size bed and 2 sitting chairs, a small table to eat a snack or look out the window....

We found this Phinneas Swan B&B through Airbnb. We were very pleased with our stay. Darren and Lynne were wonderful. When we arrived, Darren showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in one of the suites that looked on the river and woods. We had access to a hot tub, and continental and hot...

We're so glad your family had such an awesome vacation with us! Happy we could pamper you at every turn, and glad you discovered that a *real* B&B is the best kind of "air" B&B! Hope to see you again soon!

This place is so comfortable...the bed was fantastic. They put memory foam and a down topper on the beds. Never have we slept that good away from our own bed. The food here is unmatched. I promise if you book at this 5 Star B&B...you will be glad you did. Darren and Lynne make you feel like you are family....

Another visit to this lovely little property, brought along a friend who said it was the quaintest B&B they'd ever been too. We stayed in the Bulldog Room this go around.

We're so pleased that our team members - especially lovely Barb - stay true to our vision of how Phineas guests need to be treated. That she was more than happy to rush downstairs and whip up more "emergency" chocolate-chip cookies after our supply ran out in the fireplace room Saturday evening says a lot about her, and also about...

We always enjoy returning here to our favourite getaway in Vermont! Hearty breakfasts, cozy fires, and comfortable rooms with amazing beds. Walking distance to some restaurants nearby and by driving 10 minutes up the mountain road (route 242). We always feel welcomed by the owners and they take good care of us during our stay along with their staff. Looking...

Phineas was the perfect place for our group of 5. We had the black bear suite and it comfortably fit us and all our ski gear. The suite was adorable with its rustic furnishings and decor. The owners Lynne and Darren were incredibly friendly and approachable. Convenient location, next to a few places to eat and drink, and a couple...

We were at Phineas Swann for 2 nights and totally enjoyed it. My brother, niece, my two kids, our beagle and I were very comfortable.

We're so glad your whole family got to enjoy a great Vermont vacation. We're only just 6 miles from New York City, and while that sometimes seems like a lot, it's really an escape worth taking.

We stayed 3 nights in the Bulldog Suite with our pooch. It was like having your own apartment - very cozy and everything you could possibly need.
