We held our small (22 people) wedding at the Phineas Swan this month, and it was perfect. The inn is beautiful, the food was wonderful, and the staff and innkeepers went above and beyond to ensure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it to be-- and it was. It was also the perfect size for our group- small...

My sister held her wedding at Phineas Swann. We filled the B and B with our 22 family and guests. Jay and John and the "girls" made it a perfect wedding. The staff immediately knew all 22 of our names and addressed us personally during every encounter. They welcomed my baby and our 4 dogs to their beautifully decorated, elegant...

Phineas Swann is not only a great neighbor (own a shop across the street) but contributes so much to the community. We have sent friends to stay at the Inn and all have come away very, very happy (especially after the great breakfasts served in the lovely dining room). Definitely a destination and extremely dog friendly. Sabra Mountain Fiber Folk...

We stayed here for my sister's wedding; the bridal party one night and the couple the second night. We were sad that the hot tub wasn't working, but were told it is only open for the winter. I would have liked it for the cool summer night with the girls. We stayed it a suite. If you're used to hotel...

This B & B is wonderful, it's true. But even more so are the innkeepers. Jay and John are the ultimate gentlemen and caring souls. Not only is this illustrated in their many beautiful lodging options, but in the attention given to every detail with both the food and the luxurious rooms. We will be visiting time and time again,...

I booked this vacation for my husband's birthday. We love traveling with our dog so this was the perfect place. We stayed in the River House 1st Floor. This was more than just a room, it was more like a fully stocked apartment! We had a full kitchen, dining room, living room and separate bedroom. The decor was adorable and...
