We Love Your Pets!
A Different Pet Friendly Stay!
Many hotels, inns, and bed and breakfasts claim to be pet-friendly.They invite you to travel with your pet, yet once you’ve arrived, you find that the best rooms are reserved for those without pets, while you and your dog are directed to the oldest and ugliest accommodations. On top of the less-than-lovely lodging, you have to pay a hefty per night pet charge, including a safety deposit. If you’ve ever experienced this kind of ‘pet-friendly vacation’, you’ll find the Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn to be a refreshing change.
Relax in the plush comfort of our fully-remodeled and fully climate controlled historic Vermont inn, conveniently located only 7 miles from Jay Peak Resort. Our luxurious accommodations are furnished with fine antiques and romantic four-poster beds. Unlike other luxury inns and boutique hotels, the Phineas Swann is a very pet-friendly inn. A great choice for a Jay Peak area vacation with your pet is our Deluxe Dog Spa Package – our package includes accommodations in our Honeymoon suite, doggie massage, grooming, bed-sleeping permission, and more! During the Winter, try our Pet Perfect Ski Package – this wonderful package includes lodging, breakfast (with a Doggie Bag treat for your pet), ski tickets to Jay Peak Ski Resort, dog-walking services, and a lot of TLC for your baby while you ski the slopes.
CNN ranked us one of the world’s 12 most dog-friendly hotels, and Lanier Travel Guides awarded the Phineas Swann its Most Pet Friendly award twice. Read more about these prestigious awards on our Reviews page.
The Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast Inn, a Jay Peak, Vermont pet-friendly inn, offers a TRUE pet-friendly vacation experience at a beautifully-restored romantic Vermont inn only 7 miles from Jay Peak.

We have found that through the years, dog owners and their pets are among our most enjoyable guests.
As a testament to our pet-friendly nature, the Phineas Swann was named one of the world’s 12 most dog-friendly hotels by CNN, and awarded two LanierBB.com Travel Guide Most Pet Friendly Awards.
