We have stayed at very many hotels, motels, inns and B&Bs throughout the US and Canada and this was the best we have experienced. We have never before been so pampered at any other establishment. The Phineas Swan is a B&B/Inn that should not be missed.

The carriage house suite was the perfect place to start and end each day on our honeymoon in VT. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful, the room was spotless, and the Inn was as charming as you’ve always imagined the perfect B&B might, well, be. Run, don't walk, to the Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn!

I spent a few days at this B&B during a recent work trip to Vermont and absolutely loved the place. The hosts were extremely friendly and the rooms were superb. A fantastic locally sourced breakfast also boosted the experience. I will certainly be returning ASAP.

We had a wonderful time during our two night break, where we stayed in the terrier suite with our small dog. Beautifully appointed rooms were supplied with everything you could think of including extras like Keurig coffee makers, sweets and baked goods upon arrival, stocked fridges,bathrobes and even bowls, towels and treats for the dog.

My husband and I and two of our furry children had the pleasure of staying here for two nights. The thing that drew us to them was their advertisement that they were a pet friendly bed and breakfast. I must say that they fulfilled that in every way. Our English Springer Spaniels were greeted as warmly as we were. The...

We had an amazing 3 day stay on the first floor of the River House @ Phineas Swann. The suite was perfect and way more than we needed (we wished we had stayed for a week) with a bedroom, full kitchen, dining room, sitting room, and big porch overlooking a picturesque yard on the bank of the Trout River.
