Excellent Bed and Breakfast

5 on October 30, 2014

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.

Warm & Welcoming B&B

4.8 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


Wintery Weekend

4.8 on January 26, 2014

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.....


Absolutely fabulous

5 on June 19, 2013

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.


Excellent B&B

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.


What a B&B is all about

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


Very CLEAN, cozy, quiet and relaxing. Loved it.

4.8 on December 09, 2012

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!
