Do you want to have a perfect and affordable wedding? Well, then you should get married at the Phineas Swann.” – Ariane, married December 2019

“I cannot begin to describe how wonderful it is to work with Lynne and Darren of the Phineas Swann! After our initial meeting, my husband and I were completely sold. They took care of so many aspects of our wedding that I can honestly say I was not stressed about planning our wedding at all. Lynne and Darren crafted our perfect day by taking care of much of the decor, appetizers, the meal, the cake, the flowers, accommodations, linens, tables, chairs! The list goes on. Not only was our wedding weekend affordable, but it was so beautifully orchestrated as a result of the innkeepers’ offerings and abilities. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat and have them to thank for such a perfect weekend that made for a wonderful start to my marriage. And don’t take it just from me – our friends and family who stayed as guests made sure to mention how much they loved the venue, not only for the ceremony and reception but also for the accommodations and meals. And as a bonus (as if you needed more!) – there is a covered bridge, not 5 minutes away that makes for some gorgeous wedding day photos!” – Cassandra, married May 2019

“My husband and I were married at the Phineas Swann and we couldn’t be more pleased with how everything turned out. Lynne and Darren were such amazing hosts for us and our 10 family members attending from out of town. We spent two nights at Phineas Swann. Breakfast at Phineas Swann, served by Barb, was absolutely delicious! They were even able to accommodate my family members who have some dietary restrictions. My husband and the kids enjoyed the hot tub (even in the middle of a snowy March week) and we all had a great time visiting in the fireplace room at night, playing games, listening to the lovely piped-in music and enjoying our down time. The access to snacks and drinks throughout our stay was definitely a hit among all members of the family. I would highly recommend this B&B and definitely see a return visit in our future. Thanks again, Darren for officiating and Lynne for taking care of the details of our ceremony and cake and flowers!” Stacey, Married March 2018

“Darren and Lynne were responsible for the most wonderful venue and outcome for our daughter’s wedding. Their attention to detail to make this event one that her and her husband, and all that joined us, a most memorable one. They were attentive to our needs and helped us when we looked lost! The food was amazing with scrumptious breakfast entries. Their staff were friendly and worked so hard to make our event as stress free as possible. When they say they do it all, they do! They go beyond to make your stay wonderful! Thanks so much Lynne and Darren!” – Lori, Married August 2017

“This place is not only beautiful to have a wedding at, but also amazing. We bought some things for decorations but the rest was all Phineas. They did an amazing job with the decoration and the food was also amazing! Considering the price in total and what is included in the price (it’s a lot) it’s well worth it and you can bring your dog as well!” – Crystal, married September 2016

“Phineas Swann was amazing for our Vermont wedding. We are a pretty low-key couple, and were so lucky to find Lynne and Darren. From the moment we contacted them we knew we found the right place. They took all the stress out of the planning and orchestrated everything for us. We were able to make it our own without stressing over decisions and details. It was all taken care of from dietary restrictions to the decor to the officiant- they covered it all. It was a perfect low-key weekend with our immediate families and it was exactly what we wanted. We all stayed for a full weekend and enjoyed all Phineas Swann had to offer.” – Ann, married December 2015

“Lynne and Darren at the Phineas Swann made our day even better than we could have imagined! Lynne kept me organized by following up about every detail. They hosted our rehearsal dinner of 60 people and the wedding ceremony/reception of 75. If anything went awry, I was blissfully unaware. They were professional (and helpful) at every turn. They incorporated decorations and projects without hesitation. They even had heaters in the tent for the unexpected cooler weather! Our guests loved staying at the B&B over the weekend too! Breakfast was a big hit, snacks and local activity recommendations were plentiful! We’ve already decided to visit for our first anniversary. Thank you for all your hard work & for handling everything. We can’t imagine having our special day anywhere else!” – Erin, married October 2015

“The Phineas Swann was the perfect location for our intimate Vermont wedding with close friends and family. Lynne took care of every detail, the decorations were flawless and the whole day went off without a hitch. The food was fantastic and service unbeatable. The grounds are meticulously cared for and that dedication is apparent in ever picture from the day. The guest rooms are inviting and the beds incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was to die for, and the hospitality was second to none. Lynne & Darren took care in making sure our special weekend was beyond our wildest dreams and they succeeded.”Abbey, married September 2015

“My wife and I contacted the Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn to host our Vermont wedding and we are so glad we did. Not only did we have our ceremony there but we also booked the whole Inn for our dream weekend! They were able to accommodate our whole wedding party for the weekend and host our spectacular wedding. From the food to the ambiance, everything was perfectly planned! We cannot thank Lynne and Darren enough for the fantastic weekend and wedding. It was perfect.”Matthew, married August 2015

“Darren and Lynne made my rehearsal dinner absolutely everything I wanted and dreamed it to be. It was a beautiful setting for my out of town guests to stay and relax. It was quintessential Vermont, Jay Peak weddings, and everyone loved it!”Brandi, married August 2015 

“My husband and I decided on a family elopement wedding in November, found Phineas Swann online and they had the best package for the price. Everything was done online and over the phone, but when we got to the inn, we were taken by Lynne and Darren, the nicest and most genuine people. The inn has the charm of the 1800’s, and the trendiness of the 21st century. The wedding itself exceeded our expectations, food, decoration, service. … Breathtaking. Our family had the best time, and we had a wedding to remember.”Katia, married December 2014

“My wife and I contacted the Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn to host our wedding and we are so glad we did. Not only did we have our ceremony there but we also booked the whole Inn for our dream weekend!”Matthew, married August 2014

“We decided to travel from Texas to Vermont to get married. While making preparations and calling different inns in the Green Mountain state, the Phineas Swann stuck out as number one in service. Lynne was a great help in planning our special day, our stay and accommodating our needs. Once we arrived we got the grand tour and felt right at home. Lynne and Darren were always able to recommend places to go and things to see for us and our guests (ranging from 2 years to 70 years).  Lynne was great on our wedding day when the flowers arrived and were not what I expected. In the midst of my bridal meltdown, she jumped on it and made it right! The Phineas Swann will always be our forever special spot and we hope to visit again!”Remy, married August 2014

“We came to the Phineas Swann for our daughter’s wedding and couldn’t have been more pleased. Lynne and Darren both went out of their way to make us feel at home, to assure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, and to make not just the wedding but the entire stay special. Everyone in our party raved over what a wonderful place it is and every single one said they’d love to go back. Which says a lot because the guests were very diverse in age and interest. Lynne was fantastic at grasping what we had in mind for the wedding and putting it all together wonderfully without a lot of input. She’s very perceptive and had a great handle on what “fit” all the personalities involved. Both she and Darren were great at giving helpful advice and helping to make decisions for every detail – from the vows to the decorations to music to recommendations on great locales for photos. The inn itself is wonderfully eclectic and warm and welcoming.”Linda, October 2014 wedding

“We traveled from Indianapolis to be married at the Phineas Swann B&B and we relive our incredible experience there as often as we can through video and photos. Lynne and Darren were such wonderful hosts and made us feel so at home. They made sure every detail was taken care of down to making our reservations for dog sledding and our massages. We were truly very sad to have to say goodbye to them to return to Indy but hope to visit their beautiful inn again some day. Congratulations you guys. You have a gem in the Phineas Swann B&B.”Scott, married March 2014

“My Vermont wedding at Phineas Swann turned out to be the wedding of my dreams—and I never even visited before I booked. Every detail I imagine and discussed came to life in front of my eyes–and even more. What a beautiful and quaint B&B with excellent service. Owners Lynne and Darren were extremely helpful with every detail of my event and went above and beyond to accommodate my family during our stay — going as far as going to the local VFW to get a wheelchair for my dad. The gardens were a beautiful venue for the ceremony and there we so many beautiful places to take our wedding photos nearby and onsite that we had to narrow down our options to fit within our timeframe. Hands down best wedding venue for an outdoor and fall wedding!” Shana, married October 2013
