After a day skiing, this is a place you want to come to...hottub, fireplace, hot chocolate, great dinner cooked by the owner, friendly staff! The beds are incredibly comfortable. What makes it great is that you have everything you need available at all times; a magazine, book, dvd, wine , beer, coffee, tea, extra toothbrush if you have forgotten...and brownies!

We are still basking in the after glow of our Vermont vacation and our exquisite stay at Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn which is located in the quaint town of Montgomery Center Vermont.

I took my family to the Phineas Swann for a short getaway over New Year's weekend, 2011. The spectacular reviews I read on TripAdvisor before the trip set my expectations high yet Jay and his team found a way to thoroughly exceed them anyway. The service and ambience at the Phineas Swann are just about perfect. The decor of the...

We eloped here and gave them only 10 hours notice of our arrival. John and Jay were on vacation so Raz, Karen and Emme were standing in for them. I must say, this was the most amazing experience. The riverfront suite where we stayed was perfect. We enjoyed drinking coffee by the fire and even though it was snowing, we...

I usually let these wonderful reviews speak for themselves, but I was so gladdened to read this review which confirms what I already know.....we have the most wonderful staff of any inn in Northern Vermont. They take care of this inn like it is their own, and it is so exciting to see so many guests mention their names in...

We stayed at the Phineas Swann to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and to ski Jay Peak. What a lovely "home" to return to each day after skiing. We enjoyed many things about this Inn and found it tops in hospitality (Janie makes awesome breakfasts), the Christmas decorations and music were so beautiful, and the bedrooms were clean, comfortable and...

Jay and John made my wife and our puppy feel very much at home-- except if we ate such scrumptious breakfasts every day at home we probably wouldn't be able to fit through the door for very long! The whole staff, Emmy, Karen, Jessica, Justine and Mark were gracious and friendly. The staff also watched our puppy when we did...

We received gracious hospitality from everyone who worked there - especially from Emmy and Karen in the kitchen. They made a scrumptious breakfast and were ready to personalize it according to my diet. They gave sightseeing tips, directions and restaurant recommendations. Fresh fruit, snacks and assorted beverages were available all day. The bed was fantastic - comfy, luxuriously made, did...
