Amazingly friendly staff, well appointed rooms, pet friendly, and generous snack/beverage availability, plus good reasonable priced local beer/wine on premises. Hot tub was nice, but even more so the back river and campfire. The coup d'grace was the daily all home made breakfast -- fresh fruit and juices, local eggs, blackberry jam stuffed french toast, pancakes, the list goes on.... More

The Phineas Swann B&B was truly an amazing experience. The location is just beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating and I plan to return for another visit in the near future. You will feel right at home staying at Phineas Swann!

Great experience. We went to Phineas Swann for our elopement, which Darren made enjoyable and hassle free. Darren directed us on how to apply for the marriage license in town (which was really easy) and then gave us some tips on how to customize the ceremony vows. It felt like a very special day. It's worth remembering that it is... More

We were looking for a great B&B away from home, and (cell service). Boy, did we find a wonderful, cozy, and most charming B&B.

Absolutely delightful. The owners and staff are gracious and provide everything to make it comfortable and friendly. Food was exceptional. Decor gorgeous. Clean, appealing and exceptional. Coffee, tea, sodas and snacks available at all times. Adult beverage selection was extensive and reasonably priced. Breakfast feature was great but other options were also available on request.

We are an active family with 3 teenage boys, so we usually head for full service resort hotels, but with last minute plans and limited availability, we found ourselves reserving our rooms at Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast.
