... race. I have mixed feelings about it, especially since I had been in the top 5, but I gave it my all and finished pretty well. It was really warm today, I think it got up to 40°. I really lucked out, a bunch of competitors crashed and broke some poles. Thanks so much for aunt Katie coming to watch me!! She gave me a bag full of really good cookies, and they are almost gone, curtesy of my teammates!! Super excited for the relays tomorrow!
... better. I was so excited that 3 of my teammates and I were all in the same quarterfinal,meaning there was only 2 other girls in our heat. I was the lowest ranked, so I knew if I beat anyone in the heat, I would move up in places. Our coaches told us we needed to make it a fast heat because if midwest went 1-2-3-4 our 3rd and 4th skiers would have a chance do being lucky losers. The race started and I had an okay start. I knew that ...
After our morning ski, we toured a Ben&Jerry factory! After watching a film and then watching the workers, we got to test a new flavor, and then bought some pints for our villa! On the way back we stopped at a shop that had doughnuts, ciders, teas, honeys, syrups, it's was so cool! I ended up getting a tea for the morning that was mountain ...
... hills because my kick slipped a little, but it was so exciting when my coach yelled, "awesome job! Your in 6th place and 5 seconds behind Hannah and Anna!" It was really exciting because my goal was top 10, all American. I ended up finishing in 6th place and moving into 12th by the time all the skiers finishing which was a little disappointing, but classic isn't my strong suit, and the Midwest girls did REALLY good. We had 5 girls into the top ...
Today is mildly similar to yesterday The girls are eating at 9:00 and then we are going skiing afterwards when we get back, we are eating lunch and the. Around 1:45 we are heading into town for the opening ceremony! U16 girls have decided to dye our hair Monday night, after the first race!

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.
