Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn
Travel Blogs from Montgomery Center
We have done a bit more travelling recently but one thing is for sure one does not have to venture far from home to have a fun filled weekend. Our wine tour and anniversary get-away was loads of fun and only an hour away from home. It was nice to experience well paired food and wine from the local region. We are planning to return and this summer and enjoy more of what the area has to ...
... Caudalies and Domaine Vitis . The sun was shining and the drive through the townships relaxing. After the tour we checked into our second hotel located in Bromont - the St Martin. We never stayed at either of the hotels so we decided to change locations and check both out. The package included supper from a choice of one of the ...
... college students, hippies, to working class people. There seemed to be a nice crowd in there 20's much like us, which was fun.
We headed through some rural farm areas to get to our campground about an hour outside of Burlington near Stowe. Sometimes I think just driving through these old country towns with rustic barns, open fields, and mountain backdrops are the best part of these trips. There is something very special about driving down ...
... us back by the time our bus left for Dublin. Unbelievable! We get to see the Causeway by the ocean, the Dunluce Castle, and the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge which I just can't wait to cross, just the three of us with our own personal tour guide! The people of Ireland are really very helpful!! And Saturday, we can visit all the historical sites and museums of Free Derry and do everything we'd dreamed of doing! Thank you Derry Citytours!
... was able to purchase a large Nike bag that I will be able to reuse at home. Back on the bus and off to Boston. It wasn't too long before we got to Boston and reached the hotel. We got in late in the afternoon/ evening and got our key and went to our room. Did a quick wall to get something to eat and back to the hotel for a earlier night sleep then compared to the previous nights. So far what I've seen of Boston is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn Montgomery Center
Best Breakfast Ever!
My husband and I had wonderful weekend at the Phineas Swann. We were welcomed immediately and felt very much at home. The room was lovely and luxurious, and the breakfasts were fabulous! While we enjoyed meeting the other guests, it was also easy to feel private, as though we were the only ones there. The area, near Jay Peak, was beautiful. We'd definetely go back!
Just returned from 4 fabulous days in northern Vermont and a lovely stay at this B&B. This was our first experience with a B&B and also our honeymoon so we opted for the River Annex room which afforded us some seclusion. Sitting right on the Trout River we fell asleep each night listening to the sound of the running water. Morning greeted us with fantastic five star breakfasts and we were pleasantly surprised to find that our temporary home was central to all the activities we had chosen (Jay's Peak, Stowe, Canada). B&B owners made us feel welcome and definitely went out of their way to assist us in planning activities. We drove by several B&B's while in Vermont and commented to each other that we felt lucky that we had picked the Phineas Swann as it certainly had the most "curb appeal".
Wonderful B&B: Comfortably elegant, genuinely warm hospitality
What a wonderful stay. The B&B is an incredible combination of high end amenities.. plasma TVs, Frette linen, etc. with old world antiques, then add generous spirit and embracing hospitality with the charm of northern Vermont, the availability of leisure activities, especially great skiing in the Winter and Autumn leaves, and you have an unbeatable experience.
Most everything listed in the prior reviews seem on target, so I won't repeat them. But in this review I will try and impress on any Vermont traveller that this is a destination stop... go out of your way to include a few nights here.

The Phineas Swann B & B experience
This Bed and Breakfast is a comfortable place to stay.
We stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The innkeepers John and Jay have taken great care to see that their guests are content and happy and well fed. Their attention to the smallest details is one of the things that makes this inn a cut above. John and Jay enjoy what they do and it shows.
The food was fabulous and we felt pampered and cared for.
The grounds are well kept and inviting and their dogs are a joy.
We'll go back again for a visit and look forward to it. Our visIt surpassed our expectations!

I stayed at the Phineas Swann most recently in July 2006 and previously in October and November 2005.
My fiancee and I stayed here last winter for a trip to Jay Peak and truly enjoyed our visit. We had stayed with the previous owners in years past, who were fantastic, so our expectations were high. The new owners were friendly and approachable and did a nice job remodeling.
Just got back from a 7-day ski vacation to the Jay Peak area in Northern Vermont. My wife and I spent the week at Phineas Swann B&B and enjoyed our time there thoroughly. We reserved a room (about 3 months ahead) with a queen bed but because a large group was there, we were moved to a larger room (small suite) in the converted barn that had a fireplace, TV (w/VCR combo and cable channels), small refrig., couch, fan, and tub jacuzzi. Everything was clean and well cared for, but missing was tissue, a needed commodity during the winter. The shoveling of the snow on the walkway to the parking lot and the barn could have been done better too.
Fabulous stay and a gastronomic treat!!
We had the most wonderful two nights at Phineas Swann B & B in Montgomery, Vermont.The accomodations were clean, neat, lots of antiques; breakfast was an incredible gourmet adventure complete with candels. Lovely back veranda with garden to just sit and relax.The owners, Michael and Glenn were very helpful in sending us to interesting places in the area ie.. antiquing, sightseeing, cute towns.Tea time daily with amazing treats.We went the last week of Sept. and the Fall colors were gorgeous. Not a lot of people, quiet at night. We loved it!
When we drove up to the Inn, we knew we were in for a wonderful stay!! Michael and Glen greeted us at the door and made us feel welcome immediately. The Inn is so beautiful and so cozy; it truely felt like home.
The owners of this B & B, Michael and Glen, made us feel very welcomed. The home was very clean, bright, and decorative. Upon arrival, Michael gave us a tour of the home and grounds (beautiful) and suggested we help ourselves to a variety of teas and fresh-baked desserts in the sitting room. As the weather was warm, he offered to upgrade us to an air conditioned room with additional luxuries at no additional charge. I'm certain this is not always done but the important thing here is that it was obvious that they aim to please their guests. Sitting on the back porch, it was peaceful and the beauty of the yard, with it's flowers, fresh vegetable garden, bird houses, etc. was just breathtaking. Our breakfast, prepared by Glen, was delicious. We had breakfast by candle light and fresh flowers adourned the table and some flowers even found their way to our breakfast plates. Before eating my breakfast I had to take a picture of my breakfast plate as it was also decorated so eloquently. It was a peaceful, relaxing, and enjoyable stay at Phineas Swann and highly recommend it. Michael and Glen aim to please their guests and go the extra mile to make your stay there an enjoyable one.
