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.

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 (that I came up with at the last minute) without hesitation. They even had heaters in the tent for the unexpected cooler weather! Our guests loved staying at the Inn 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 again for all your hard work & for handling everything. We can't imagine having our special day anywhere else!

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, and everyone loved it! I love the fact that they are dog friendly, so my now husband and I were able to bring our lab with us!! The food and beverages were delicious, and we really enjoyed the bonfire to end the evening at the Trout River house! The smores were delightful! They made my guests feel extremely welcome!

My 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. The new owners Lynne and Darren were extremely helpful with every detail of my event and went above and beyond to accomodate 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!

Let me start off by saying we are a same-sex couple and nobody else took as good of care as Jay and John did for our wedding. From the second you call or contact them making your arrangements to the time your packing your things to leave the staff at Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast are at your beck and call. We arrived to a perfectly manicured location full of amazing gardens and grounds and freshly made chocolate strawberry's made only about 10 minutes before waiting on our bed for us. They made sure that every need that us or our families needed where always at hand and at the ready whether it be restaurant suggestions or directions to get the girls nails done. The breakfasts were the best I've ever had and the fact that its personally made for you and your guests makes it even more amazing. They made our cake and helped us find a great officiant that had the same quirky personality as we did. Being that I am a florist I made our boutineers and corsages but the other flowers that they supplied were beautiful and went well with every part of our wedding. The service was in the gardens tucked in a little grove where we stood and everybody could stand around us and join in such an amazing day.

I hope this gets posted. I rated this establishment (5) stars. My youngest daughter was married there and I was a bit apprehensive on the location, but once I got there I was impressed at the decor. It brought back a lot of memories and made quite a few more. I did not know that a place like this existed in Vermont being I am from Montana. The food was fantastic, the staff went above and beyond accommodating the last minute changes. The only regret I have is that I could not spend more time there. There was so much to see . Decor is not the word I am looking for it's Nostalgia for all ages. Feel free to call Rand E Booth 802-895-4227 . I wish I could put the experience in better words. It was great!!!!!

I don't really know where to begin with reviewing the Phineas Swan. Below is a link to my TripAdvisor review (which was curt but well intentioned):
http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g57323-d269880-r124830307-Phineas_Swann_Bed_and_Breakfast_Inn-Montgomery_Center_Vermont.html

- Food:
Absolutely delicious. We went with Chef's choice and what Vermont had in season. It 100% surpassed anything I was expecting.

- Service:
Amazingly friendly and flexible staff. They honestly made the B&B feel like it was ours for the weekend. Every face had a smile and everyone was extremely inviting and warm. Everyone was also responsive and attentive to anything we needed done/changed.

All in all, this was the perfect wedding spot for my wife and I. Vermont is an amazing state and the Phineas Swan is a perfect addition to Vermont. If you plan on getting married in Vermont, I would look Phineas Swan up first.

We had our wedding at the Phineas Swann in June 2011, and were thrilled with the entire thing. We booked it sight-unseen, as we were planning from NC and didn't have the opportunity to travel to VT in advance, based on reviews and talking to Jay on the phone. We could not have been happier with the results. The location is quaint and picturesque; the staff made our entire party and guests feel like we were truly at home, and they did EVERYTHING we asked to make our wedding weekend perfect. The wedding dinner and breakfasts were delicious.

Perfect wedding weekend-- all of our guests stayed on-site, and we didn't have to do a thing except relax and enjoy the weekend. They handled all the details! New managers now, but they are hopefully following the same process that John and Jay (previous owners) established.
