    Perfect and beautiful

    We had our wedding ceremony held at Phineas Swann this past March. There were 8 of us and 4 dogs. Our requirements for the wedding included: a cozy place for us and our guests to stay the weekend, a reception dinner, and having our dogs part of the fun. We booked Phineas Swann for our wedding weekend, sight unseen going solely based on reviews. Darren and Lynn’s bed and breakfast fulfilled all of our wishes and more. They have established a professional, beautiful, and flawless business with all the needs any guests would want or didn’t think of. The staff (Gina and Matt) were personable and you could tell they enjoyed their jobs. Darren and Lynne made our stay feel like we were in the comfort of our own home. The owners have put their heart and sole into Phineas Swann and it shows. The rooms, including the common areas, exceeded our expectations. The rooms have the coziest beds and the cutest decor. Their food (breakfast and ceremony) was exceptional!! It’s nearly a month later and we are still talking about the delicious food. The staff even accommodated a special diet restriction for one of our guests. As for the wedding, we were just at the start of the coronavirus pandemic so you can imagine how anxious we were days leading up. Darren and Lynne assured us we would be safe and the inn would be clean/sanitized. There was no doubt about it! The wedding ran so smoothly. Darren and Lynne have developed relationships with outside vendors such as hair, florists, bakers, etc. Our wedding package, “Just the 10 of us”, included a cake which I must say was the best cake we have ever had at a wedding. Couples worry that the cake is wasteful but this was the absolute opposite. The flowers were also gorgeous and we even dried them so we could have a wedding day souvenir. We plan to return again as a family in the near future and look forward to a relaxed, fun filled weekend.

    Absolutely Perfect

    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!

    Phineas Swann Inn & Spa's reply:

    Cassandra, thank you so much for the amazing compliments! We so adored hosting your special day, and love how much you, your family, and guests enjoyed themselves here at the Phineas Swann.
    We pride ourselves on doing exactly what you spoke of: Taking away all your worries about details, and allowing you to focus on each other. We always stress that affordable weddings don't have to be small affairs -- yours was a great day from start to finish and we're thrilled we got to share it with you. Enjoy your new life together! - Lynne & Darren

    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 Inn & Spa'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.
