We spent one night there, a Thursday night, to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. They upgraded us to the Honeymoon Suite. The Inn provides snacks and drinks in the room and in several places in the main house. I enjoyed using the outdoor hot tub. While the price is quite high it seems in line with the environment provided. The...

We're so thrilled you got to spend your 60th wedding anniversary with us. We were happy to help you celebrate your big day with us, and thank you for the compliments about our garden, hot tub, and house. We're glad you enjoyed your breakfast - next time we'll treat you to some French Toast, waffles or crepes!

We enjoyed a very nice 2 night stay in the somewhat dark but still comfortable Bull Dog Suite. We would have preferred a bit more access to fresh air as there's no cross ventilation available. But the ceiling fans and air conditioner worked fine. Breakfasts are good and bountiful. The innkeepers friendly and helpful. Us dogs are truly welcomed!

Thanks for your feedback and review! The Bulldog suite is one of our larger suites, and some guests find the privacy inviting, while others like yourself long for more windows. It's always a tough balancing act. During your next stay, consider our Green Mountain Suite. It's layout is identical to the two-bedroom Bulldog Suite, but is filled with large picture...

Derrick and Lynne were responsible for the most wonderful venue and outcome for our daughter's wedding. Their attention to detail to make this event one that her and her husband, and all that joined us, a most memorable one. They were attentive to our needs and helped us when we looked lost!

We had the Green Mountain Room, which was by far the best room. It had great lighting from the sun coming through a beautiful stained glass window. Two bedrooms: one with a very high queen size bed which was extremely comfortable and another with two individual beds (perfect for children/individual friends to stay with you) It was a very comfortable...

Thank you so much for your flattering review! We're glad you got to enjoy the Green Mountain Suite - one of our most popular rooms. It's very popular with families (kids LOVE it when they see they don't have to share a bed with their siblings!) and the spacious living room with flat-screen TV and gas-log fireplace is an excellent...

We stayed for one night and found the accommodations and the locale to be pleasing. We loved the bathroom design, though we wished for some kind of hook in the shower enclosure. The rooms and common areas are decorated with a flair for detail and thematic value. The rooms in the hotel, to be fair are maybe a bit undersized--,...

Thanks for the extremely kind words! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at our Trout River Suite in the River House, and I know future guests will appreciate your tips. Dog owners with stair-phobic dogs probably should chose the first-floor Black Bear Suite. That said, the new staircase is far safer and less treacherous than the old one we replaced...

We headed up north to Vermont to steal away from everyday life and this B&B was the perfect choice! The hosts were wonderful, the room was great and the location was amazing - mountains and water everywhere! We will definitely be back!

Thanks for taking the time to stay with us and enjoying the top of Vermont! It's a little bit more of a drive than staying in the southern end of the state, but the beauty, natural wonders and fun activities certainly make it worth the extra 90 minute drive!

I'm not one to write reviews, but the Phineas Swann certainly deserves a great one, and I'd feel guilty if I didn't make the effort to give them the kudos they so deserve.

Where to start? You compliment our obsession with cleanliness - There's no better way to get to Lynne's heart. She obsesses on making sure everything is spotless and clean, so we're glad it's noticed. You thanked us for the snacks, sodas, homemade cookies and other goodies.
