Q. What types of pets can stay at your inn?

A. The Phineas Swann is a dog-friendly inn.


Q. Is there a per night fee to have my dog stay at the inn with me?

A. No. The Phineas Swann does not charge a nightly extra fee for allowing your dog to stay at the inn with you. If you bring more than one dog, there is a flat fee of $25 per stay for each additional dog.


Q. Do dogs stay in the rooms with their owners, or do you have an on-site kennel?

A. We believe dogs are a part of our guests’ families, and as such, they stay in the rooms.  We do not have an on-site kennel. Our staff is very happy to take your dogs for walks while you’re gone for the day simply for a gratuity. You can make arrangements each day at breakfast.


Q. What are your Room Rates?

A. Our range of room rates can be found on our Accommodations Rate Card – this information describes high and low season rates (a range of rates) and holiday periods, as well as information on check-in, cancellation, etc. For more information about our rates during specific time periods, use the Check Availability link in the navigation bar at the top of this page.


Q. How do I check availability?

A. To check availability for any of our rooms and suites, use the BOOK NOW link in the navigation bar at the top of this page, or simply give us a call at (802) 326-4306.


Q. How close are you to Jay Peak?

A. We’re just 6.5 miles (10km) from Jay Peak Resort.


Q. Do you offer discounted ski tickets/equipment rental/shuttle service?

A. Yes, yes and no. We have discounted ski tickets available for our guests to save them money on their stay. You can order them when you book online or over the phone. We offer equipment rental packages in cooperation with our town’s amazing ski shop, FirstTrax. We don’t provide a shuttle since the road to Jay Peak (Vermont 242) is regularly plowed and kept clear. Guests prefer to drive themselves so they can control when they get to the mountain and come back.


Q. What if I have special dietary needs?

A. We’ll always ask you this when you make your reservation but make sure to remind us. We offer variations on our amazing breakfasts for gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, lactose-intolerant and other needs.

A. You can always save money via our packages and promotions. Click the Packages & Deals link on our website and then select the right deal for the time of year you’re visiting.
