Wedding receptions at the Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast near Jay Peak Vermont


“My husband and I decided on a family elopement wedding in November, found Phineas Swann online and they had the best package for the price. Everything was done online and over the phone, but when we got to the inn, we were taken by Lynne and Darren, the nicest and most genuine people. The inn has the charm of the 1800’s, and the trendiness of the 21st century. The wedding itself exceeded our expectations, food, decoration, service. … Breathtaking. Our family had the best time, and we had a wedding to remember.”Katia, December 2014 elopement wedding

“My wife and I contacted the Phineas Swann Bed & Breakfast Inn to host our wedding and we are so glad we did. Not only did we have our ceremony there but we also booked the whole Inn for our dream weekend!”Matthew, August 2014 wedding 

“We decided to travel from Texas to Vermont to get married. While making preparations and calling different inns in the Green Mountain state, the Phineas Swann stuck out as number one in service. Lynne was a great help in planning our special day, our stay and accommodating our needs. Once we arrived we got the grand tour and felt right at home. Lynne and Darren were always able to recommend places to go and things to see for us and our guests (ranging from 2 years to 70 years).  Lynne was great on our wedding day when the flowers arrived and were not what I expected. In the midst of my bridal meltdown, she jumped on it and made it right! The Phineas Swann will always be our forever special spot and we hope to visit again!”Remy, August 2014 wedding

“We came to the Phineas Swann for our daughter’s wedding and couldn’t have been more pleased. Lynne and Darren both went out of their way to make us feel at home, to assure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, and to make not just the wedding but the entire stay special. Everyone in our party raved over what a wonderful place it is and every single one said they’d love to go back. Which says a lot because the guests were very diverse in age and interest. Lynne was fantastic at grasping what we had in mind for the wedding and putting it all together wonderfully without a lot of input. She’s very perceptive and had a great handle on what “fit” all the personalities involved. Both she and Darren were great at giving helpful advice and helping to make decisions for every detail – from the vows to the decorations to music to recommendations on great locales for photos. The inn itself is wonderfully eclectic and warm and welcoming.”Linda, October 2014 wedding

“We travelled from Indianapolis to be married at the Phineas Swann B&B and we relive our incredible experience there as often as we can through video and photos. Lynne and Darren were such wonderful hosts and made us feel so at home. They made sure every detail was taken care of down to making our reservations for dog sledding and our massages. We were truly very sad to have to say goodbye to them to return to Indy but hope to visit their beautiful inn again some day. Congratulations you guys. You have a gem in the Phineas Swann B&B.”Scott, March 2014 elopement wedding

“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. Owners Lynne and Darren were extremely helpful with every detail of my event and went above and beyond to accommodate 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!” Shana, October 2013 wedding

“From the second you call or contact them making your arrangements to the time you’re 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 strawberries 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.”Garrett, June 2012 wedding 

“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.”Rand, February 2012 wedding
