We needed a getaway for our anniversary, and thought we'd do some new things. 1) Go to Vermont for a stay rather than just driving though, 2) Stay at a bed & breakfast, 3) Go dogsledding. After researching a bit online, we decided on the Phineas Swann and their Romance package. From the moment we made the reservation to the moment we left for home, Darren and Lynne and the rest of the staff made our stay pleasant and easy-going. From arranging the dogsledding and personal masseuse for us, to the warm conversation and lit fireplace in the main house, to the scrumptious breakfasts each morning, to the beautifully appointed carriage house suite & outdoor hot tub - we were spoiled! For lunch or dinner, there are a number of restaurants nearby with good food; amazing for such a little town. Jay Peak is not far, if you want plenty of action. The Canadian border is only 15 minutes away if you want to do a little shopping & sightseeing, And of course, there are maple farms and dairy farms for local fresh goods. A foot of fluffy snow fell over the weekend, and it was relaxing just to watch the birds and squirrels get to the feeders. My husband and I agreed that we must come back in each season of the year, because there would always be something delightful to see and do.

In search for snow and a place to XC Ski, we made a last minute reservation at the Phineas. From the time we arrived, the hospitality was remarkable. The B&B was beautiful, more so than we had expected. We stayed in the red room in the main house which was a little small. The large bed took up most of the room although being high off the floor I was able to put some of my ski gear underneath. The breakfasts were fantastic; stuffed French toast, eggs benedict. We extended our stay and plan to return again.

Words do not begin to describe this B&B and the most wonderful Inn Keepers, Lynne & Darren. When we arrived we were greeted as though we were close friends for years, this dynamic duo certainly have it right in making their guest feel at home in theirs. Our stay was twofold, one being a short excursion to Vermont and second a planned elopement with my partner of 21 years. We found this B&B in Northern Vermont called Phineas Swann that looked perfect. And it was perfect. They have a wedding package, the rooms are wonderful, the town of Montgomery, Vermont is magical, Phineas Swann is pet friendly, and I could go on forever about how great the entire wedding was thanks to the town of Montgomery, VT and the owners of the Phineas Swann Inn...Lynne and Darren. After a long seven hour drive up there in constant snow...with two dogs...they made us feel welcome, and never took the reason why we were there in the first place for granted. So if you are straight or gay and you're looking for the absolute perfect place to get married quietly, I would highly (five star) recommend Phineas Swann in Montgomery, VT. We stayed in many inns and B&Bs on Cape Cod and none could compare to how wonderful these people are at Phineas Swann. They left nothing out, from rose petals on the bed to chocolate covered strawberries near the fireplace. If you have the chance to be in Northern Vermont and do not stay here, you will miss an opportunity of a lifetime!!!!
Thank you so much for the kind feedback! We enjoy hosting weddings here so much, and northern Vermont is a secret, beautiful place that not going to stay a secret for long. We're glad you enjoyed our B&B and the town itself. We hope we get to see you again for anniversary visits and other stays!
