Nice place to stay

5 on August 26, 2018

We give The James Manning House 5 stars. Our stay was for 7 nights. Janet and Warren were perfect hosts. The private bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. The living room and dining room were also open. We were asked prior to our stay for any dietary needs and the breakfasts met all our wishes. The food was freshly made with creative recipes and ingredients from their garden. Every breakfast was delicious. James Manning House is conveniently located to Honesdale and an easy drive down to Hawley and Lake Wallenpaupack.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing the James Manning House. We enjoy our guests and hope that we meet their expectations and more. When guests return it is our best report card.

None Better!

5 on August 17, 2018

We have been visiting the B&B for years and look forward to our visits each and every time. Janet and Warren are amazing hosts and it is always a delight to see them. While there are so many things to do in the area, it is also great to relax by taking in nature, reading a book, or working on a puzzle. Good quality time.

Innkeeper Response
Our repeat guests are golden. When guests come back time and again, it's our pillar for success. We thank you for your loyalty.

Perfect spot

5 on August 13, 2018

On a recent trip to the Poconos to visit my kids at camp I stayed at the James Manning House with my wife and truly enjoyed my stay here. I arrived late evening and was welcomed by Janet and Warren who showed us to our room after a brief tour of their home. The room was quite comfortable and even had a a fireplace (which we didn’t use as it was August). We awoke each morning to the smell of a wonderful breakfast and pleasant conversation with the other guests and Janet and Warren who were able to provide us with detailed info on the area. The grounds offered space to lounge in the back of their home and relax. I would highly recommend this B&B as it was a nicely appointed and welcoming in a serene location and would absolutely stay here again. Ps My wife especially enjoyed working on the community puzzle each morning.

Wonderful Hospitality and House

5 on August 06, 2018

The house is very beautiful and comfortable. Warren and Janet were very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend staying here!!

Our Friends Loved It

5 on August 04, 2018

We had dear friends visiting us, and we wanted to treat them to a wonderful B&B experience nearby our home. We've known Janet and Warren for several years, and we knew that their hospitality would be great. They exceeded our expectations. Our friends loved staying there and felt like part of an extended family. Everything about the experience was superb. Thanks for making our friends' visit so enjoyable. Jan and Val Cheripko

Never disappointed, such a pleasure to stay here!

5 on July 11, 2018

Janet and Warren have been the best hosts one can ask for. A lovely couple, a lovely home, such lovely accommodations. Recently we had to travel here for a wedding and I made sure parents on both sides of the family got to stay here. Did I mention Janet's magnificent breakfasts?? Don't miss the chance to stay here!


5 on July 09, 2018

Warren and Janet are the consummate hosts -- friendly, informative, and outstanding cooks. Their house is wonderfully furnished and quite comfortable, even during a record-breaking heat wave in late June. And the grounds surrounding the house are beautiful. One of the very best B&B's we've had the pleasure of enjoying.

Above expectaions!

5 on June 18, 2018

The James Manning house was a beautiful home! The owners, Warren and Janet made us feel at home and a part of their family the moment we entered their front door. The breakfast was so delicious! Great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and gardens. Make sure you see ALL the beautiful decor and antiques that are part of this beautiful historic home. C and K Peterson

The perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.

5 on June 11, 2018

My wife and I spent two days at the James Manning House and we were totally satisfied! First of all, we received an upgrade to the nicest room in the house and that was unexpected and highly appreciated. Both Warren and Janet were very friendly and made us feel totally at home with their delicious home made cuisine and interesting conversation. We were also very impressed by the extremely beautiful nature around the house: lakes, rivers, parks, flowers, farms, creameries all around, made us feel totally happy, and we are definitely planning to go back.

Lovely B&B

5 on May 10, 2018

Staying at James Manning House B&B was a first for myself and my daughter. We weren't in town for pleasure but staying here, made it feel like pleasure. Janet and Warren are lovely hosts. The whole house is warm and cozy, has that old feel charm. Breakfasts was amazing. If my daughter and I are int the area int the future we will definitely cll Janet and Warren to see if they have availability.

Innkeeper Response
So glad to have made your memorial trip a more pleasant experience for you. No matter what the reason for travel a guest should have a good experience from their lodging.

An outstanding place to stay!!!

5 on February 19, 2018

I was travelling alone for business and this is the ultimate experience!! The rooms are lovely, the hosts are incredible and breakfast was out of this world!!! I have stayed in B & B's in other countries and in the US, this one is tops on the list!!!

Innkeeper Response
We hope to make business travelers feel at home, by providing a safe and cozy environment as well as provide a hearty home-cooked meal. In doing so we hope to make sure your day is pleasant to start off on the right foot.

Love this place!

5 on January 04, 2018

We have stayed at the James Manning many times over the last few years. What originally caught my attention about the inn was Warren & Janet's ability to serve me a gluten-free breakfast while also satisfying the needs of other guests. We hope always to be able to stay at this outstanding inn whenever we visit Honesdale.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

5 on October 27, 2017

This was the second time for us. If we could give it 10 stars we would. Warren and Janet are the best! The food is fantastic, the place is clean and comfortable. We can't say enough good things about it. We will be back and won't stay anywhere else when we are in or near Honesdale.

September Stay

4.8 on October 24, 2017

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were excellent hosts and the food was excellent. Our room was so warm and cozy, we especially enjoyed turning the fireplace on during the cold night. The place was clean and charming with the decor. We would definitely stay again! Thanks again for the lovely stay.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

5 on October 24, 2017

Janet and Warren are fantastic hosts. Everything about the James Manning House is outstanding. This was the third stay for my wife and me. We will be making a fall trip again next year. Bob and Kathy H.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful B&B

5 on October 17, 2017

The B&B was more than we had hoped for. It looked very nice on the web site, but experiencing it first hand places it second to none. We needed a longer stay to see everything and hear the story that went with them. The hosts, Janet and Warren, were very accommodating with our late arrival and we enjoyed their company while we were there. Be prepared for an outstanding, homemade breakfast!

Innkeeper Response
Part of owning a B&B is the lovely people we meet and being able to share our beautiful and historic area of Pennsylvania. Cooking breakfast; well that's just fun!

Enjoying our getaway

5 on October 15, 2017

We stayed at James Manning House for the first time. Been to others this one of the top 3. Staying in a quiet zone was what we were looking for. We had no really plans and Janet and Warren helped with suggestions. Tne owners supplied the guest with bottled, spring or homemade flavored water. There was cookies available too. We enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

4.8 on September 06, 2017

My husband and I stayed at James Manning over a recent holiday weekend and had a fantastic experience. We stayed in the Wayne Room which was incredibly spacious yet cozy. The fireplace was a lovely touch. We really enjoyed how friendly and helpful Warren and Janet were as hosts, and the breakfasts were fantastic (incredible veggie omelet, homemade blueberry muffins, veggie pancakes, chicken sausage, fresh fruit, OJ, and coffee). We felt very pampered! A highly recommended BnB if you're looking for a cozy, affordable, welcoming, and delicious experience!

Like Coming Home

5 on July 22, 2017

This was our second visit to the James Manning House B&B. It was like coming home again. Janet and Warren are SO welcoming and accommodating. Breakfast a real treat. Our first visit was in late fall, but this time, in July, their gorgeous yard was in full bloom, and it offered an installation new since our visit two year ago: an elegant pergola with chiminea and the soothing babble of waterfall over rocks. They offered wonderful guidance to things to see and do in the area. We will be back!

Innkeeper Response
We're so excited to show off the new outdoor living space for our guests. So glad you enjoyed it!

- Janet (innkeeper)

Delightfully quiet and calming

5 on May 22, 2017

You want so much when you travel. Maybe it isn't realistic. It doesn't matter we all want a lot and during vacation we want more. This was the first time we stayed at a bed and breakfast. For me the whole idea of it was weird so I didn't know what to expect. It was anxious about the whole thing. What we found though was that the whole experience was peaceful and calming. It is really a different experience than staying in a hotel. Warren and Janet are really nice. They are professional and provide a clean and delightful place with great food. You feel comfortable and safe. All of the amenities are there. I even studied at the dining room table one night so for me it was so comfortable like you are at home. That is the key I guess: it feels like home. Even thought it is someone's home it feels like home except you don't do any work. And that is the definition of a good vacation, comfortable and pleasant, right? I think so, so I loved it.

Weekend visit

Warm and inviting. Super gracious hosts.

Yearly Family Weekend

5 on December 17, 2016

We have been visiting James Manning House for about 8 years now, it is our home away from home. Janet and Warren have become more like family each year and we always enjoy our time there. Everything is perfect at the James Manning House...accommodations, food, surroundings, and especially the innkeepers!

weekend away

5 on December 06, 2016

We were welcomed kindly and the decorations for the Christmas season were so inviting and cozy to kick off the spirit early in the season. I like when festive feeling comes directly after Thanksgiving and is celebrated for weeks before. The food was very good and we were given options for any needs. The sharing of house common rooms felt truly welcoming for evening time outside our room.

Innkeeper Response
As you could tell we do enjoy the holiday season and are glad you enjoyed your time here. We enjoy sharing the season with others.

Girls Weekend

5 on November 01, 2016

We spent a beautiful fall weekend at the James Manning House. From the delicious breakfasts, to the snacks and beverages that were available, we wanted for nothing! The relaxed, and cozy environment was just what we were looking for! Thank you Janet and Warren!

Just like coming home

5 on October 28, 2016

This was our 3rd stay at the James Manning House. My husband and I come to celebrate our anniversary each year(next year is on the books!) . Whenever we travel we stay at Bed and Breakfasts and this is by far the best we have been to. Janet and Warren are the nicest people- warm accommodating and gracious hosts! They handle special requests with ease and have struck the perfect balance between chatting with guests and respecting guests privacy. They clearly enjoy owning and running their Bed and breakfast and their passion shows! No detail is overlooked here and special touches are everywhere. The house and grounds are always beautifully decorated in every nook and cranny for the season, it is meticulously clean –but also very cozy and homey throughout the entire house, to us it feels like coming home. As far as the food- the breakfast menu is creative and the dishes served are filling and delicious with many ingredients from their own garden. If you go away hungry its your own fault!! Fresh baked treats ,beverages and other snacks are available anytime which is a very nice touch. Also be sure to check out Janet’s homemade jams. We always take several jars with us and enjoy seeing what new flavors she has come up with each year. We treasure our time at this BnB each year and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The Best

5 on September 11, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. The best part of being innkeepers is continuing to host wonderful guests.

- Janet Heinly (innkeeper)

Fantastic Find

5 on August 30, 2016

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.

Home Away From Home

5 on August 29, 2016

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!

Best of the Best!

5 on June 23, 2016

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 !!

Innkeeper Response
Thank, thank you. Our number of returning guests is our true score card.

The Perfect Get Away.

5 on April 24, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

An enjoyable work trip

5 on January 20, 2016

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!

Highly Recommended B&B - Absolutely Lovely!

4.0 on December 28, 2015

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!

Innkeeper Response
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!

Wonderful stay under most difficult circumstances

5 on November 22, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

- Janet (innkeeper)

Delightful Stay at this B&B!

5 on November 21, 2015

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!

Terrific Autumn Getaway

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!

Family visit weekend

5 on October 06, 2015

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.

5 on October 04, 2015

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.

A cozy B&B experience

4.0 on September 14, 2015

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.

Second visit even better than the first!

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.

Excellent Place to Stay

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.

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.

Innkeeper Response
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

Beautiful home, delicious food, warm hospitality. Highly recommended.

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

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.....

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!

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.

The Best B&B Ever!

5 on September 11, 2012

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!

Great B&B

The Perfect Home Away From Homw

5 on August 13, 2012

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!!!

Could not have been better!

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!

A Delightful Experience!

5 on May 29, 2012

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 JamesManningHouse is one of the top 3 places we have stayed in this Country

5 on October 16, 2011

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

We went back for more

5 on September 10, 2011

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.

A wonderful place to stay

4.0 on August 20, 2011

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.

A GREAT Stay!!

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.

Wonderful Retreat

5 on November 22, 2010

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!

Wonderful first time experience

4.2 on October 27, 2010

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

Delightful people at a wonderful place

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.

Comfort and cozy

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.

This is an exceptional B&B located in a very pleasing rural area; the accommadations were outstanding and the hosts were exceptional. It was like being at home. We have been twice so far and can't wait for the next visit.

I don't think you can find a better place

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!

Raising the Bar

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.

Best Ever

We had not been in this area of NE Pa. Our friends booked us in the James Manning House. I can only say FANTASTIC. Lord willing ~ WE WILL ALL GO BACK

The jackpot weekend

4.8 on September 22, 2009

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.

Loved the experience!

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!

Beautiful and Relaxing

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.

Excellent B&B Inn

Highly recommended – we booked 2 nights, but stayed for 5! Interesting Federal style house with very nicely decorated well equipped clean rooms and comfortable beds. Outstanding quality breakfasts - varied daily menu and generous quantities. Warren & Janet are fantastic hosts that really make you feel at home.

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.

Simply the best!

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.

An 1819 Federal style home. Beautifully decorated, spacious rooms, coffee or tea or water always available (with homemade goodies, too)! Excellent breakfasts. Friendly hosts always willing to please. Very clean. Cute little porch to sit out on with a cup of tea & a book.

Warm reception

Innkeepers, Warren and Janet, treat you like a treasured family member. Our room and the inn itself were spotless and exceptionally well appointed. The surrounding grounds were beautiful and well tended. Breakfast was superb. You will not be disappointed.

A Great Find
