Winter is here and it's time to enjoy pampered luxury at our romantic Vermont inn near Jay Peak, Vermont. We offer the charming hospitality of a northern Vermont bed & breakfast while ensuring our guests all the privacy and convenience of a boutique luxury inn. The Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn is nestled in the Green Mountains on Montgomery Center's Historic Main Street, right at the base of Jay Peak Resort, just north of Stowe and central to many attractions — Jay Peak skiing, snowmobiling, dogsledding, fine dining and much more! Our Specials & Packages will help you start planning your next romantic vacation.
Stay Here For True Vermont Winter Adventures
The Jay Peak area of Northern Vermont is one of the best regions in New England for outdoor adventure, averaging 370 inches of snow a year! In winter, you can ski Jay Peak without the hassle, crowds and noise. Our ski packages allow you to purchase your discounted lift tickets through us, and even have rental skis, boots and poles expertly tuned by First Trax waiting when you arrive. That means no matter how late you arrive, the next morning you'll enjoy a hot breakfast and go straight to the lift lines, avoiding ticket windows and rental delays. If you're interested in trying out dogsledding, local outfitter Montgomery Adventures will give you a once in a lifetime experience. Want to snowmobile? Our packages with Jay Snowmobile Adventures ensures speed, excitement and great views!
Luxury with Pet-friendly Accommodations
Relax in the plush comfort of our fully-remodeled and fully climate controlled historic Vermont inn, conveniently located only 7 miles from Jay Peak Resort. Our luxurious accommodations are furnished with fine antiques and romantic four-poster beds. Unlike other luxury inns and boutique hotels, the Phineas Swann is a very pet-friendly inn. A great choice for a Jay Peak area vacation with your pet is our Deluxe Dog Spa Package - our package includes accommodations in our Honeymoon suite, doggie massage, grooming, bed-sleeping permission, and more! During the Winter, try our Pet Perfect Ski Package - this wonderful package includes lodging, breakfast (with a Doggie Bag treat for your pet), ski tickets to Jay Peak Ski Resort, dog-walking services, and a lot of TLC for your baby while you ski the slopes.
CNN ranked us one of the world's 12 most dog-friendly hotels, and Lanier Travel Guides awarded the Phineas Swann its Most Pet Friendly award twice. Read more about these prestigious awards on our Reviews page.
Vermont's Romantic Getaway Destination
If you’re looking for a romantic getaway in Vermont, look no further than the Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn. Boston Magazine has named Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn one of New England’s Top 5 Romantic Inns in their Best Winter Escapes magazine, and Romantic Country Magazine named the inn one of the USA's Most Romantic Winter Getaways.
Our romantic accommodations are furnished with fine antiques and four-poster beds with luxurious linens, yet also have all the modern conveniences. We have a wine list the envy of every other B&B in Vermont, the perfect romantic addition to your stay.
You’ll start each day of your romantic getaway with an unforgettable breakfast – everyone raves about our breakfast recipes, such as country omelettes with Vermont cheddar cheese, raspberry-stuffed French toast made with homemade bread, and strawberry crepes. Most of our ingredients come from local farms -- Lynne picks our blueberries herself, our eggs come from nearby chickens and our maple syrup comes from a sugarhouse down the road you can tour. During the day, take a romantic stroll though our gardens, lovingly designed and cared for, or sit in an Adirondack chair by the Trout River with a glass of wine as you listen to the sounds of the river. In the evening, relax in our outdoor hot tub under northern Vermont’s star-filled sky.
