I have spent numerous multi-night stays at the James Manning House over the past two years while visiting family in the area, and it continues to be the most comfortable, most gracious, most enjoyable location available. It is without peer.
Thank you for your kind words. The best part of being innkeepers is continuing to host wonderful guests.

My wife and I were traveling to town for a wedding and realized there were no chain hotels nearby. A friend recommended this BNB and we couldn't be happier with the choice. Homemade breakfast was served each morning, and the innkeepers were incredibly accommodating for allergies and special requests. The bed was fantastically comfortable and we were delighted to have a clean, comfortable private bathroom. We also loved the charming decorations and convenient location near town.

We were privileged to stay at the James Manning House this summer for our anniversary. Wonderful accommodations, great breakfast and the peace we were seeking during our short getaway. Warren and Janet are very knowledgable as to local restaurants and attractions. Can't wait to return!

We just returned from our 8th multi night visit to James Manning House and are already planning number nine. Janet and Warren are amazing hosts who go above and beyond to make each stay memorable. You will not find a more charming and congenial place to relax a while. Breakfast is always delicious and plentiful with dietary needs taken into account. On a scale of 1 through 5 James Manning rates a Ten !!
Thank, thank you. Our number of returning guests is our true score card.

From the moment you walk in the front door you feel like you are home. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The grounds are equally inviting, day or night. Janet and Warren are friendly, accommodating, and go the extra mile to ensure their guests feel welcomed and pampered. Breakfasts are delicious and a great start to the day. We always wish we could stay a bit longer.
Thank you for the kind words. We enjoy providing a relaxing atmosphere for our guests. No matter the reason for our guests' travel, we hope they can leave refreshed and de-stressed.

My stay at the James Manning House was truly perfect. I was traveling for business in the area and decided to stay at this charming B&B for the duration of my stay (about 2 weeks). Janet and Warren are such warm, kind hosts, and quickly made me feel at home in this lovely place. My room was very warm and cozy (a must since the temps were in the single digits or teens the whole time I was there), and adorably decorated. I had a different breakfast every single day that I was there, and they were all so delicious I don't think I could pick a favorite. While I enjoyed my breakfast in the homey dining room each morning, Warren graciously cleaned off my car (it snowed several times during my stay) so that I could get out the door to work on time. Warren and Janet are absolute pros, and I'm so glad I decided to stay at the James Manning House. I look forward to returning on non-business travel soon!

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at James Manning House. The owners, Janet and Warren, were warm, friendly and very accommodating. We arrived on a rainy day and Warren met us outside with an umbrella and helped us in. How thoughtful. Once inside, we were greeted by Janet and a little welcome sign with our names on it. The house was adorable and filled with smells of comfort Each room was very cozy and decorated so nicely for the Christmas holiday - it felt "just like home." The rooms were perfect, traditional in the warmest kind of way with plenty of modern amenities. I was thoroughly impressed at how clean and well-kept our room was - as well as the entire house. And the breakfast served in the morning was hearty and delicious!! If you are looking for a quiet place to unwind (with plenty to do nearby if you choose) with owners who truly enjoy and aim to please their company, I highly recommend this B&B! It's a true gem and we will gladly return. Thank you Janet and Warren!
Thank you for your kind words. We enjoy providing a "just like home" getaway spot for our guests. Wishing you a healthy and prosperous new year!

We were called to Honesdale, PA upon the untimely death of our dear nephew at age 41 from cancer. The James Manning House became a special source of comfort during this sad time. The delicious breakfast cuisine was rounded with foods from the house garden. The rooms were spacious, meticulously maintained and tenderly appointed. Even the bedsheets were something to rave about! The host and hostess were kind and made great conversation. We felt taken care of. If we are ever again in the Poconos, we will stay only here.
Our sympathies for you and your family in these difficult times. We were glad to give you a comforting place to stay and hope that you will return under happier circumstances.

We do not travel much, but this has GOT to be one of the nicest B&B experiences out there! Janet and Warren are the perfect hosts - warm and welcoming, and showing great interest in us as guests. Great room, great breakfasts, great information and guidance. Next time we want to stay in this area we will not even consider anyplace else!
5 on October 21, 2015
This was our second visit to the James Manning House and had a great time! This was our 35th Anniversary and the JMH made it special. This area in the fall is beautiful all by itself, but Warren and Janet seem to know everything that is happening in the region! From places to visit, places to eat and even scenic roads to travel, it is the best! We've already booked for next year! Oh yeah, if you leave breakfast hungry, you're too picky!

This was our second visit to the James Manning house. It is a gem! It is cosy, clean, wonderful food, and Janet and Warren are gracious hosts. We plan to visit many times.

Home away from home. When visiting the area, which we do frequently, we stay at the James Manning House. Warren & Janet are warm and friendly hosts and really make you feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. The guest rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable, spotless and filled with 5 star amenities. The common areas are equally comfortable, inviting, and relaxing. If you choose to stay in, there are plenty of board games, books and movies to enjoy. There are homemade cookies, brownies or scones to snack on with coffee or tea available around the clock. The outdoor area is lovely to walk through or sit and relax and take in what nature has to offer. If you choose to venture out, Janet and Warren are very knowledgeable about the area and events and provide lots of ideas based on your interests. Breakfasts are always delicious, made with fresh ingredients and you won’t leave the table hungry. Be sure to check out the varieties of homemade jams and jellies. We highly recommend the Manning House for a quiet getaway or a special occasion. We look forward to our next visit.

Was in town for a wedding and stayed in the Lancaster Room. Warren & Janet are warm, friendly and really make you feel welcome. Their breakfasts feature local delicacies and recipes. Everything was delicious. I would definitely stay here again. Would love to check out the yoga center on my next visit.
5 on August 22, 2015
We're very picky, but James Manning House gave us nothing to complain about. Janet and Warren know so much about the area, they give plenty of tips to make the most of your visit. The quiet, gentle vibe of the house and grounds create a marvelous feeling of relaxation and well-being.
5 on August 22, 2015
i have stayed here many times during the past year, and I have only grown in my enthusiasm and respect for the James Manning House. Warren and Janet are delightful hosts, welcoming without being intrusive. The setting is comfortable and beautiful at every season, the breakfasts are alone worth the stay, the rooms and the house are spotlessly clean -- just perfect.

This is an excellent BnB! Janet and Warren are so nice and genuine. About the house – very clean-spotless in fact,warm and cozy. The hosts have thought of everything and then some. They have a ton of books,movies and board games you may use if you want. A self serve fridge and snack area along with coffee and Tea area(with tons of flavor choices),wine glasses and bottle opener that was open for guest use 24 hours. The best part of this was the yummy homemade cookies always available. They also had a microwave for guest use if you needed it. They were kind enough to keep our wedding cake topper(since it was our 1 year anniversary) in their large fridge for us until we wanted it also which we greatly appreciated. Our room: We stayed in the Wayne room although I would stay in any of them. The room was as I said spotless and had a nice size bathroom and awesome shower. It also had a fireplace,seating area,robes plenty of towels,blankets and pillows. The room also had some special features such as fresh flowers,little dish of candy,shampoo,conditioner,soap,makeup remover cloths,hairdryer and a really useful"in case you forgot it" basket with a variety of items for guest use. The bed was large and very comfy. We spent a lot of time in the room reading,watching TV and relaxing. It was the perfect atmosphere for that! The Food: The breakfasts were tasty and beautifully presented and always several courses. The first day we had Angelic Bananas,scones,pumpkin stuffed french toast with an amazing pecan maple syrup and bacon. The second day we had baked apples, a sausage egg and cheese strata and toast with a selection of Janet's homemade jams. Each day also included several juice choices,coffee and tea. Everything was baked or made from scratch and was delicious and very filling. They want you to be full and graciously offered seconds of everything if you wanted it. Janet makes many different varieties of homemade jams and jellies and we got some to take home.
It is our pleasure to make guests feel at home. We know what we feel is important when we travel so we try to meet our guests' needs.

We were guests at James Manning House this past October for the first time. My husband and I received a warm welcome from Warren and Janet (in spite of our late arrival). Since we were the only guests that evening, they were kind enough to upgrade us to the larger suite. Our night was warm and cozy with the fireplace burning. The highlight of our stay was the delicious breakfast and the warm conversation. We will definitely be back soon and recommend to our friends! L&B

We had a great stay at the James Manning House. We have come to that area for years and learned so much more about the history of the area, the eating in the area and some shops in the area. The hosts were so interesting to talk with and also interested in what we had to say. They accommodated our every need. I would go back in the New York minute. It was a great time.
5 on July 10, 2013
My husband, myself and another couple stayed with Warren and Janet for our second visit recently....They are so welcoming and warm...seems like we returned to old friends or even family when you are with them...wish we could get there more often.....maybe we will.....

We stayed at The James Manning House for my 40th birthday. It was a special birthday, and thus we wanted something nicer than your standard motel/hotel fare. The Manning House is quaint, quiet, and surrounded by picturesque, old-world type scenery. I love historical settings and old buildings, and The Manning house gives you a sense of being a part of history while still enjoying the amenities befitting a modern establishment. It's the best of both worlds. The owners were friendly without being intrusive, and the food was excellent. They always had various types of coffee available at all hours along with fresh-baked treats. This was important to a night owl and confessed foodie like me. I will go back one day which is saying a lot since I'm from the midwest, so getting to PA is not a hop skip and jump endeavor.
5 on May 19, 2013
Warren and Janet were outstanding hosts, my wife and I could not have asked for more. The accomodations, service and food all exceeded our expectations. I strongly recommend and will visit again.
5 on April 07, 2013
This is what a B&B is all about. The home is appealing, warm and friendly. We went for a birthday celebration and it was more than we could have hoped for. Our hosts were just terrific and we can't wait to go back again. As someone who has visited a number of B&B's, I highly recommend The James Manning House as a "must stay." Thank you Janet, Warren and Louie for making us feel so welcome. Diana and Alan Karmin Westfield, NJ

We stayed for two nights in Nov, 2012. The entire home was very clean, which is important for us because we have allergies to dust, mold and perfumes--but we had no problems at all. Janet and Warren were wonderful hosts. The food was excellent and they even had their own homemade brandy, jellies and lots of other goodies for us. The home was beautifully decorated and very cozy and peaceful, with lots of interesting things to read and enjoy in the sitting and living rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

Recently stayed at James Manning House for our fourth mutli night stay. We love returning to this fine establishment. Janet and Warren are wonderful people and provide an excellent experience. The breakfasts are lovingly prepared,, delicious and plentifull.

I can't say enough about this B&B. Everything was fabulous and the owners, Jan & Warren, could not have been better hosts. Great food, vintage historic home, very clean, beautiful grounds and gardens. We couldn't have been happier at any B&B!

Our stay ar the James Manning House was the perfect home away from home. Not only is the Inn BEAUTIFUL and so well maintained but InnKeepers Warren and Janet were the most wonderful hosts! We definitely plan on returning to this cozy Inn located in one of the most scenic and lovely areas of PA's Endless Mountains - Highly Recommended!!!! Oh - and the breakfast was absoultly delicious!!!
5 on June 01, 2012
This is a charming and extremely well-kept B &B in a lovely village located in the prettiest landscape the area has to offer. If this were not enough: Really warm hosts, wonderful home-cooked breakfasts with new surprises every morning, and a well-sized room very comfortable room. Stepping outside the house a spacious and very pretty garden, with a bench overlooking a lawn/meadow gently sloping down toward a wooded area. Simply delightful!

I was pleasantly surprised by the accommodations and genuine hospitality found at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast. I had booked the James Manning House mainly for its proximity to Honesdale, Pa for a family event. Resting in and relying on this Bed and Breakfast as our "headquarters" for a family funeral was so easy and pleasant to do. The ambience was wonderful; the hosts absolutely delightful and the Breakfast large and lovely. I would and have highly recommend this Inn as a place to stay that would enhance any trip to NE Pennslyvania. Mary Maloney, Virginia.

A wonderfully gracious home and hosts. All the amenities; good breakfasts; hospitality par excellance.

The James Manning House and the Innkeepers are truly incredible. My husband and I have not traveled the world but have been in 23 of our 50 states and this B&B is one of the very finest places we have stayed. I've spent $450 per night for a room in Boston in the past and I must say our accommodations here were more impressive. You are welcomed from the moment you pull in...you feel like you purchased the home and it is yours for your stay. We only stayed one night on our first visit here but will be going back as soon as we have the time...Outstanding doesn't really do this home justice.......Our thanks to Warren and Janet....G. Cooper

We arrived on our Bikes in some rain but were greeted with big smiles and lots of conversation. They were very warm and friendly people. The Bed and Breakfast was excellent. We have stayed in other Bed and Breakfast but this had to be the Best Yet!! Clean and very beautiful home. Truely enjoyed the stay and will return if back in the area again!! Highly recommend!

Warren and Janet totally exceeded my expectations in every way. When we pulled in on our motorcycles, it had just started to rain, so Warren pulled their vehicle out of garage so we could put our bikes out of the rain. Then, seeings how we hadn't had dinner he offered to go get take out for us so we would not have to take the bikes out in the rain. The whole house was ours and it was wonderful. From the spotless rooms with beautiful quilts, (the sample of home made wine), the homemade snacks, the spectacular breakfast, everything was exceptional. They really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and felt like we were truly part of the family. Will definetly stay there again when we are anywhere close. Thanks again. The Rockwell's

Stayed there on Thursday 8/25/11 for the first time. It was for just one night before we went on to another accommodation for the weekend for a family reunion. My husband and I loved it. Breakfast was so amazing, gourmet. This was the best B&B we've ever stayed in. After the family reunion we were hit by hurricane Irene and so we could not go home. We called Janet and Warren to see if we could stay Sunday night. We lucked out. We brought along 2 other couples with us who enjoyed it as much as we did.

This is a beautiful place to stay. The gardens and home are wonderful to look at and immaculate. The hosts, the Heinlys are so friendly and were very helpful with directions. I would definitely go back.

My family and I arrived in PA to visit our Great Aunt! The James Manning House exceeded all expectations. The hosts could have not been more friendly, the rooms and house were clean, bright and airy and the food was AMAZING!! Thank you so much for making our stay that much more memorable.

I always try and stay at the James Manning house when I visit the Himalayan Institute. Warren and Janet are wonderful, warm hosts, sharing their knowledge of the area with guests and offering an inviting place to unwind from the outside world. The inn is very clean, quiet and beautifully decorated. I love the gas fireplaces in the rooms!

We had always stayed in hotels and motels when traveling. The Manning House was suggested to us and was our first B+B experience. We were a bit nervous about staying in the house of strangers. Our hosts, Janet and Warren, put our fears to rest almost immediately with their welcoming and friendly manner. Our room was spacious, comfortable and extremely well appointed. All the modern conveniences were there, but nicely hidden so as to not ruin the historic charm. When we experienced the first of two breakfasts we were (to say the least) very pleased. The food was exceptional. Bravo! to the Heinly's. You will be seeing Kathi + Eric again

A nearby B&B had no room and refrred us to Warren and Janet Heinly's James Manning House. From the moment we set foot in the foyer we were taken with the warmth and quiet cordiality of our hosts. They made us feel as if we had dropped in on old friends. Their wonderfully restored home lacks no amenity that a reasonable traveler could desire. I was delighted that the bed in our room. the Berks Room, was firm and inviting with crisp linens and comfortable pillows. To cut to the chase, Warren and Janet are charming and interesting people, knowledgable about the area and quite willing to entertain and offer snacks to our children (who were staying at another nearby establishment) until we arrived. Breakfasts were especially good, but may be lunch-killers if one is not careful and doesn't say "STOP!" You absolutely cannot go wrong if you are fortunate enough to find a vacancy at the James Manning House.

Our stay was for two nights, we were very comfortable. The atmosphere was cozy, and relaxing. The Innkeepers were very sociable and friendly . I will always remember waking to the aroma of a delightful breakfast.

We stayed two nights for our anniversary and by far it was THE BEST! The owners were very helpful and friendly, the will help pick out restaurants in the area and are great cooks. If there is one place i would suggest it would be this place!
5 on November 01, 2009
Janet & Warren's phenomenal attention to detail --decor, food, hospitality, & assistance in planning our activities--made our visit an extremely enjoyable experience. Having stayed at many B&B's in N. America & Europe we have no hesitation in stating that you have set a new standard and raised the bar. We are looking forward to our next visit to James Manning House.

We were invited to a family wedding in our home town and where to stay is always a problem. We decided to check the internet to see if we might find a new place in the area. We hit the jackpot when we discovered the James Manning House. Every aspect of our stay was perfect.
5 on September 12, 2009
This was our first stay at a B&B and we loved the experience! Warren and Janet are excellent hosts. We felt completely welcomed into their home. The decor was pleasant and quaint. I loved the unique details in our room.. the stained glass, the heated floor in the bathroom, the fireplace, and fresh-cut flowers. The grounds behind the house are also very park-like and enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious (homemade stuffed french toast, peach sausage, fruit parfait, and pear bread). We were sad to have to leave after only one night, but can't wait to return!
5 on July 05, 2009
Staying at the Manning house was the highlight of our trip to Pennsylvania! The historic house was beautiful and comfortably outfitted for guests. We enjoyed touring their gardens set in a gorgeous woodland setting, eating the scrumptious breakfast and having relaxed conversation with the hosts. We recommend this to anyone who want to have a wonderful bed and breakfast experience.

Our stay at the James Manning house was simply amazing. The rooms were spacious, the decor was warm and pleasant, and the hosts made you feel so very pampered. It was a wonderful treat for us to feel so welcomed and to have such delicous food. The atmosphere was like a home away from home and we recommend the James Manning House to all of our friends and family as being the best place to be to get away from it all in style.

Everything about the James Manning House was spectacular! Our bedroom was very spacious and clean. The hospitality of Warren and Janet was warm and welcoming, and the breakfasts were better than we've had at any B&B. We highly recommend an overnight stay at the James Manning House.

We had a very enjoyable two nights stay at the James Manning House. The room was beautifully decorated and had a very homey feeling to it. The breakfast we had was very delicious. There was so much food and it was all delicious. The host Warren and Janet, were very accommodating and a delightful couple. We would recommend this inn to anyone who is looking for a wonderful place to escape to and have delicious food and meet two very charming innkeepers.
