The romantic accommodations are furnished with fine antiques and four-poster beds with luxurious linens, yet also have all the modern conveniences, such as flat-screen televisions, wi-fi, courtesy phones, and individual climate controls. Our main inn is cozy in the winter (imagine yourself relaxing in front of the fireplace with a hot cocoa) and airy in the summer, offering tea, coffee, cold beverages, and endless snacks throughout the day.

What’s included at the Phineas Swann? Items that would be add-on charges at any other lodging accommodations in the area, including:

• Access to WiFi throughout the property
• An all-you-can-eat gourmet breakfast made with locally-sourced Vermont ingredients,
• Full cable TV with premium movies
• All-day coffee, tea, soft drinks, snacks, cookies & brownies
• Long-distance telephone service anywhere in the US and Canada,
• Complimentary DVD “rentals” for you to enjoy in your room, and
• Use of our outdoor Hot Tub

Local activities this time of year: Bicycling, Sightseeing, Hiking, Long walks in the small village, Jay peak ski resort & more.

The Phineas Swann’s unique attributes is its Pet-Friendly nature. Unlike other luxury inns, The Phineas Swann is a very pet-friendly inn (in only designated areas), and we look forward to making your next Vermont vacation safe and special for both you and your pet.

The inn is located in northern Vermont, near Jay Peak Resort in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. It is said that Vermont is what the United States used to be, and that northern Vermont is what Vermont used to be. Our historic village of Montgomery is uniquely situated to allow guests to easily travel to nearby Canada as well as Stowe, Burlington, and Newport, making us the perfect gateway for points of interest in Northern Vermont.

Your hosts, Darren & Lynne, welcome you to the Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn.
