A Necessary Retreat

5 on September 20, 2017

What a wonderful experience! I'm an event planner and my team and I were staying here to be in close proximity to the venue we were working with. Ms. Kathy was so warm and welcoming. She allowed us to check in early in order to get prepared and she had beverages waiting in a hall refrigerator for us from our long four hour drive. The rooms and bathrooms were super clean (I'm a stickler for clean bathrooms) and the breakfast was to die for. You could tell that the food was prepared with so much LOVE. Her place was such a haven from all the busyness and we even got to have a few laughs together over breakfast. I highly recommend you choose E. Kellog for you next getaway experience.

Peaceful getaway

Our stay was tremendous. Kathy was very hospitable and flexible. She knew the area well and her recommendations were a big help when trying to figure out what to do during our stay. The food was filling and delicious. It was so serene and quiet which made our stay even better

Kathy treated us like royalty. I could not have asked for more.

Great B&B Experience

4.8 on August 20, 2013

We first stayed here for several nights in July and when informed we were going back to the area for a family affair, we contacted Kathy for another reservation. Our experience in July was so nice, we wanted to come back and no longer stay at another area B&B we had for several years. Kathy makes the place work in many ways and the experience has been very enjoyable

A Successful Family Reunion

5 on July 20, 2013

My family and I took over the E. Kellogg B&B for several days in June for a family reunion (some others in the family stayed in a B&B a few houses away). Kathy was most gracious and helpful in our plans. All of us got together for dinner a couple of times at Kathy's. Using her grill, the kitchen and some utensils of her own we were able to have a great time and reconnect in a private setting rather than a restaurant. Kathy, thank you so very much! Don't be surprised if some of us show up again!

for me, a home away from home

Whenever I'm in town, I purposely stay at Kathy Schloesser's E. Kellogg B&B. In April, 2013, I stayed in the Ladd Room for a week and indulged in the comfort and serenity this B&B offers. Kathy is a great proprietor, serves wholesome, big breakfasts that are made to order, and is a lively conversationalist. Great place to stay!

Warmth and charm

My husband and I had a simply wonderful time at the E. Kellogg B&B last weekend. Kathy made every effort to provide us with delicious foods and beverages, a history of the house, places we might like to visit during our stay in Honesdale and much more. We're looking forward to returning for more relaxation and pampering. Jeannie and Ken

Great choice.

On a spur of the moment three of us decided to get away for a weekend. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were greeted by Kathy, who made us feel right at home. She gave us some ideas about what was going on in the area, especially what was not especially noted in tourist literature. We followed her advice, and had dinner in a wonderful place which is also an art gallery. Breakfast on Sunday could not be beat. I only wish we could have stayed longer, but I will be back.

Comfy and cozy

Our recent stay was wonderful! What a relaxing find- just the get-away we needed from the pace of everyday life. Kathy does everything she can to make her guests feel "at home". We will plan yet another trip in the spring.

Great spot! Great host!

My husband and I stayed at the E. Kellogg B&B last month and loved it! Kathy was so welcoming, and her B&B was really cozy. Food was great - she does little things that really make a difference (remembered our preferences, had extras for us, etc). I can't recommend this place enough and we will be back!
