This was my husband and I's first B&B experience. It was absolutely wonderful, the staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating. The Blue room is very cozy and cute, all was very clean and comfortable. The morning breakfast was very good also.

We're just home from having spent four nights at the wonderful Phineas Swann B&B in Montgomery Center in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom near Jay Peak. We stayed in the Green Mountain Suite, upstairs in the renovated Carriage House behind the Main House. Our room was the perfect combination of old and new -- contemporary furnishings blended together with antique pieces and...

The owners, John and Jay, were away for the day when we arrived (they had called us ahead) and Jay's sister Jenny met us and showed us the property and our accommodations in the River House. It was cold and rainy - Jenny went so far as to lend my wife a sweatshirt for the stay. We loved being on...

This is the second time that I've stayed at the Phineas Swann. Jay and John continue to impress with the high quality of their B&B. They are gracious hosts, Karen prepares an amazing breakfast, and the luxurious beds ensure a good nights sleep. Thanks! I'll be back...

We stayed at the Phineas Swann after four days of hiking the Long Trail. We were incredibly well-cared for and fed. In addition to all the wonderful Inn amenities, Jennie even did our laundry and took us back to the trail the next day. We intended to hike four more days but part way through, we knew we wouldn't be...

While my partner and I may not be the typical B&B demographic (independent working professional and medical specialist resident, early thirties), we have stayed in some dozen such places over the past five years throughout North America. We've come to appreciate the comfort and friendliness of B&B's—and, as a small business owner, I make an effort to support independent business...

We stayed at the Phineas Swann B&B on the first night of our trip with a group from Bike Vermont.

This was our second trip to Phineas this year. We were married here in October and could not wait to come back.

This was my second trip to Phineas Swann...just to make sure the impeccable service, food and general warm atmosphere of the inn wasn't a fluke. It wasn't.
