Build Your Own Vacation Package
Vacation packages can be a great way to make the most of your vacation - by letting you do the planning up front, you'll spend more of your vacation doing the things you want to do instead of chasing down last minute details. The only problem is when your vacation package choices don't meet your needs, by either charging you for things you don't want or by falling short and not providing the things you do.
With that in mind, although the Phineas Swann offers pre-built packages on our seasonal packages pages, unlike other lodging properties we also give our guests the opportunity to "Build" their own package from the choices below. Choose Romantic add-on's, like champagne, flowers, and chocolates, Spa Experiences, like a massage, or Outdoor Adventures like dogsledding, canoeing, and kayaking.
HOW TO BUILD YOUR PACKAGE: After you've browsed this list, simply give us a call, and we'll add these your choices to your reservation. Or, if you are booking online, after you choose your room and dates of your stay, you will be guided to a page where you can select any of the choices you see below. Simply click on your choices to add them to your reservation. We'll send you an email to confirm your choices. There are no black-out periods for Build Your Own Packages, although some choices are subject to seasonal availability.
