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.

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.

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!
