We always enjoy returning here to our favourite getaway in Vermont! Hearty breakfasts, cozy fires, and comfortable rooms with amazing beds. Walking distance to some restaurants nearby and by driving 10 minutes up the mountain road (route 242). We always feel welcomed by the owners and they take good care of us during our stay along with their staff. Looking...

Phineas was the perfect place for our group of 5. We had the black bear suite and it comfortably fit us and all our ski gear. The suite was adorable with its rustic furnishings and decor. The owners Lynne and Darren were incredibly friendly and approachable. Convenient location, next to a few places to eat and drink, and a couple...

Thank you so much for your review! We were so happy to be your home away from home during your ski trip. You all were great guests and we're glad you got to enjoy the night life here in Montgomery, the "Fun Side of Jay Peak." Looking forward to seeing you again!

We were at Phineas Swann for 2 nights and totally enjoyed it. My brother, niece, my two kids, our beagle and I were very comfortable. The host and hostess here got out of their way to make you feel welcome. The freshly baked cookies that waited for us in our room were a nice touch, especially after driving a few...

We're so glad your whole family got to enjoy a great Vermont vacation. We're only just 6 miles from New York City, and while that sometimes seems like a lot, it's really an escape worth taking. We enjoyed your three children (and of course, Marshall & Magnolia's cousin beagle!) and the special dog bed we had waiting for him right...

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...

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...

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!

Congratulations on your new life together! We loved hosting your elopement, and love hosting your fur-baby!

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.
