Second visit even better than the first!
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.
Excellent Place to Stay
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.
Excellent Bed and Breakfast

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.
Great spot for R&R

Warm & Welcoming B&B
on February 07, 2014
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.
Would love to move in

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.
What a B&B is all about
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.
