We just got back from a nice, relaxing weekend at the Swann Inn. It was a very well kept bed and breakfast, about a ten minute walk into town. Neil is a wonderful host, and could not do enough to keep us happy. Our air conditioner was making loud noises, and he immediately put another one in for us. He...

This B&B is well-situated near Main St. Beacon and nearby hiking spots (Mt. Beacon is almost next-door). We stayed for an early spring weekend (Fri & Sat night) and found the inn well-kept and the innkeeper (Neil) a great host. Breakfast was a sweet affair, with yogurt and fresh fruit both mornings with Pancakes and Waffle the main entrees. Both...

The B&B is located 10 maybe 15 minutes walking distance from Main Street. But do not worry, Neil will drop you off or pick you up anytime until 10:30pm. If you are planning on having a late dinner or hitting the bars, be advised there are no readily available cabs in the city. We stayed in the green room for...

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful one-night stay at the Swann Inn. The tranquility suite was well appointed, cozy, and impeccably clean. An assortment of hot drinks, cookies and fruit adorned the ground floor at all hours. Our breakfast was delicious and served promptly. Neil hosted us as he would an old friend. TL;DR The Swann Inn boasts genuine,...

It was like the American version of Little Britain. Every nook and crannyis full of knick knacks, overstuffed furniture, and Christmas decorations. That was all fine, and the room and bathroom were lovely. It was comfortable if overwhelming.... BUT...the guest service is very strange. Here are a couple of highlights: I helped myself to some of the range of cereal...

We stayed at this beautiful home over New Year's Eve. The Swann Inn has great proximity to downtown Beacon restaurants, Dia museum, and local hiking (all skill levels). Best pancakes I've ever had! Highly recommended.
