About Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn

WEDDING WIRE EDITORS PICK 2016: PHINEAS SWANN BED & BREAKFAST INN

Beautiful romantic northern Vermont Bed and Breakfast Inn, the perfect venue for your Vermont destination wedding.

Congratulations on your engagement! The Phineas Swann wants your wedding to be a very special day, so we offer options to best fit your needs.

The Phineas Swann is an all-inclusive wedding venue, providing everything you need to make your wedding a memorable day! Most venues charge extra for many of the items that we include. We want our couples to enjoy their day so all you have to do is bring your family and friends and sit back, relax and focus on each other. We only host one wedding a weekend so we can focus all our attention to you and your guests.

The Phineas Swann offers an on-site ceremony in our gardens under a beautiful wedding pavilion, complete with chandelier and bell to ring after you say “I do!!” Or if you prefer there are two historic church buildings in town that you can rent for the ceremony for about $300. Your reception will be held in the venue's enormous wedding tent, which is adorned with chandeliers, antique furnishings, a sound system and a dance floor. The Phineas Swann also provides white table cloths, china, stemware, silverware, and table runners and napkins in your color choice. It also incorporates your wedding color with chair bows for all the reception chairs. Wedding director Lynne Drevik has table décor available for you to choose from including antique bottles, votive candles, copper or silver tea kettles, old wooden crates, copper wash basins, lanterns, white birch vases and all sorts of other vases and candles.

    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! I would reccomend staying in the Black Bear Suit if you are having a decent sized wedding and want a room to accommodate your wedding party for getting ready, that is what we did then just had to stay another night to enjoy it again!

    Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn's reply:

    Thanks for the kind comments! You've hit the nail on the head about what we try and do: Take care of everything so the only thing you have to focus on is each other. We're glad you had such a great experience and found it such a good value. Good tip about the Black Bear Suite. It and our Green Mountain Suite are the favorites for wedding parties to get prepared.

    Phineas Swann was amazing for our wedding. We are a pretty low key couple, and were so lucky to find Lynne and Darren at Phineas Swann. 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. They also refered us to a few local photographers and the one we went with was fantastic.
    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.

    Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn's reply:

    We know weddings can be stressful, and we make it our mission to try and "de-stress" everyone in the wedding party. As you noted, by providing an "all-inclusive" package, you don't have to worry about all the details. We're glad you had a low-key weekend with your families. That's what makes us happy: Seeing two families blend together over the weekend and leave on Sunday morning as best of friends!
