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. Breakfast, prepared by Barb, was out of this world (blueberry pancakes one morning and stuffed French toast the next). There was fresh fruit and several choices of juice each morning as well as...

My Wife and I stayed in the Honeymoon Suite around the end of January. The room is exactly as shown in the pictures. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat and things to do. They have an outside hot tub just steps from the room. It being January in Northern Vermont, I was skeptical of going...

Thanks so much for your rave review! We're glad you to enjoy our outdoor hot tub, which is open and operating year-round! There's nothing more enjoyable after a day of skiing, biking or hiking to come back and relax in our outdoor hot tub with a cold drink. We're glad you mentioned our Green efforts as well.

Can't say enough about our 2-night stay: Engaging innkeepers who took the time to chat and get to know us while giving us a quick tour of the property and making us feel like we were in our very own home; our room in the main house was beyond incredible with lavish furnishings and bedding and a beautiful modern bath...

The service and property exceed even 5-diamond level hotels? Wow! What a wonderful compliment! We appreciate your kind review and glad you enjoyed every aspect of your stay, from the quaint yet modern rooms and baths to the great breakfasts and places to have dinner here in town. We hope we get to see you again soon!

When searching for a place to go on our honeymoon, we wanted something beautiful, relaxing and where we could bring our pup - Phineas Swann was just that! The inn was incredibly comfortable, and accommodating.

Congratulations on your new life together! We loved hosting your elopement, and love hosting your fur-baby! We love being able to match guests' interests with all the fun things they can do at the top of Vermont. For some, a visit to Ben & Jerry's is a must. For others, exploring trails and hidden gems in what they want. Regardless,...

Thanks for your great comment. You make a good point a lot of potential guests miss: Just because you're going to arrive late in the evening doesn't mean you should avoid a stay in a B&B. With us, if you're going to arrive late, we can leave you self-check-in instructions so that you can settle into your room, have a...

We stayed at Phineas Swann after a long day of biking around Vermont. The inn was so comfortable and relaxing after such a hard day. Our hosts were warm and friendly. Our room, in a separate house in the rear of the property, was very quiet. Something very nice that the inn does is have snacks available around the clock...
