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!Sent on 07/01/2019

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!Sent on 10/02/2016
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.Sent on 01/09/2016
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!
