A Nice B&B in Northern VT A review of Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn

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.

Afternoon tea in the wood stove-heated den was a delightful addition after a day of skiing. The included coffee cake and/or to-die-for brownies were a nice touch.

Michael, Glenn's partner, died suddenly last Dec. '04 but Glenn has carried on, apparently, without a hitch. Vitrually everything was done to please the guests and the breakfasts were varied, tasty, and filling.

There is talk that the B&B is up for sale and you should check with the owner to see if it has changed hands.
