I highly recommend the Swann Inn. The B and B was beautiful, quiet and had great food and great service. The owners were very nice and helpful with all requests. The room was very clean and very spacious. The breakfast was so good and service wonderful. I would definitely go back there and recommend it highly.

We loved our stay here. The inn itself is a beautiful, historic home dating from the end of the War between the States, circa 1865. Darlene and Neil were most accommodating and made us the most delicious breakfast of multi grain pancakes, preceded by fresh local fruit and Darlene's own Colada sherbet. Our room was cute and had all the...

We very much enjoyed the low key hospitality and accomodations. Breakfast was excellent and The Willow Room quite comfortable. We were the only guests on a Thursday night and were treated very well by the innkeepers, who work hard to keep up the place single (or double) handedly. It's not as "fancied-up" a place as some might like, but it...

So this is a bit quirky. Run by a very pleasant couple who, unlike the other B&Bs we have stayed in, seem to run the show on their own without help. We appreciate how difficult it is to keep up, but it does show it's wear and tear and could use a bit more attention. The bed in green willow...

We like to thank you for your comments, as they are important to us. The Swann Inn of Beacon is a small Bed and Breakfast and therefore we have to do all of the work. Each year, we spend money to improve the inn. Recently, we installed a new bathroom for the Blue Sky Room, so all of the rooms...

We enjoyed our one-night stay in July 2015 at the inn. The inn itself is interesting and comfortable, and the owners are extremely accommodating. Breakfast was absolutely delicious! Coffee, an assortment of tea, and cookies are available all day. It is easily accessible to downtown Beacon and hiking areas. We stayed in the lovely, spacious red room on the first...

What a lovely B&B....Neil and Darlene could not be more helpful and the breakfasts are to die for. Coffee and cookies available all day, and there's a pretty garden and porch with rockers to enjoy the sun. A delightful, intriguing house, and we loved our stay here - excellent wi-fi connection too.

Thanks to Darlene and Neil for a lovely weekend - it was exactly what we needed: a long weekend in the country, convenient to MetroNorth, healthy walking distance to town, and dog-friendly for well-behaved dogs! Located literally a block from Mt. Beacon and several blocks from the Hudson shore and Main Street, this is a nice place to relax. Our...

On a get-outta-the-city trip found this place online and booked it. Neil was super nice and came to pick me up at the station, (he even waited for 30 mins coz my train got delayed). He took me around beacon on our way, and helped me mark the places I should check out. The Inn is simple and just perfect!...
