My sister and I wanted to go to the Poconos for a long weekend in early fall. After finding only expensive hotels and other questionable lodging, we found the Brookview Manor Inn. We have never stayed at a BnB but Brookview's price/value was right and we are happy we booked with them. Gaile and Marty made sure our weekend was relaxing and enjoyable! Our room was clean and cozy and the breakfast was phenomenal! They even got up early on Sunday to make us breakfast just so that we could get to one of our activities on time. Gaile and Marty are terrific hosts and we will absolutely be back!

Very friendly and accommodating owners who also can cook some real good hearty and filling breakfast. Their restaurant for dinner, My Daughters Place was also excellent. The flounder special was delicious and the Figgy Piggy pork chops were unique and delicious as well. We'd recommend this place for a quiet and relaxing getaway.Kris & Steve NJ

This is a lovely old mansion with a guest house. The guesthouse is a little more rustic, but still nice. The rooms are filled with lovely antiques. The proprietors, Gail and Marty are warm and funny. Delightful to talk to, and knowledgeable about the area. The breakfasts are sumptuous and they also have a nice restaurant for evening dining. My favorite B and B. We come back every year.

We come here annually and it's always the highlight of our year. Proprietors Gail and Marty are out of Central Casting, funny, warm, quirky and engaging. The rooms are comfortable and full of lovely antiques. Breakfast each morning is sumptuous and delicious, and the highlight is Marty busting out of the kitchen every morning after everyone has been served with a hearty GOOD Morning! And staying to kibitz with all the guests. Just a delight!

This was our first time at a B&B and it was wonderful. The owners are great and keep the place looking beautiful. There are so many trinkets and treasures to keep your eyes busy for hours! Our room was quiet and cozy and very relaxing. While we did not eat dinner here, the breakfasts were amazing! We would definitely recommend and will be visiting again!
Hope we helped to convert you to the Bed and Breakfast experience. Hope to see you again soon.

This charming Bed and Breakfast with magnificent antiques through out the house will peak your interest in the history of the establishment. The owners were very pleasant and proud of their B & B.. You can see that it is a labor of love for them. The restaurant served a wonderful breakfast (included) and the dinner menu provided for a great meal for Valentine's Day. If there is any negativity, I would have to say that the bathroom could have been more clean and more up to date. However, it is, after all, a home that is over 100 years old. If you like a quiet weekend in the Poconos, then this could be for you.
Thank you for taking the time to review our Inn, yes it is a labor of love. We have been very busy updating. With a 115 year old home there is always something to update. Not sure which bathroom you were referring to. some do have the original pedestal sinks and hardware which is the charm of our home others have been more modernized with Jacuzzis, and waterfall showerheads. Hope to see you sometime soon

My now fiance and I went to the Brookview Manor on New Years eve 12/31/14. This was our first Bed and Breakfast and we chose this one because of the good reviews, the price was reasonable and they had a room available. I am so glad that we chose this place because it really was wonderful. The place is very pretty, the staff and owners are very nice and helpful and the restaurant inside had amazing food. The menu was a special one for New Years Eve and was a 7 course meal. All I can say is WOW. It was delicious. Our room, #10, was very pretty, clean and romantic with the hot tub. It was the perfect setting for my then boyfriend to propose. :) This was a memorable experience even if it was for one night. We definatly said we will be coming back again in the Spring. We plan on making this a place we will come to again and again. For some reason I was not able to put in Outstanding on the ratings above. But definatly an outstanding place. :) T.M.
Thank you for you lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to seeing you again

Better than the first. Each room is so unique. The meals are delicious. Especially the CHICKEN ABBY! the murder mysteries are so much fun. The owners are friendly and accomadating. It feels like a home away from home.

This was my first B & B and it was really quaint and nice. The restaurant was one of the best dinners I have had and the family atmosphere makes you feel at home. I would go back here again.

This was the fifth time we stayed at the Brookview Manor. Gail and Marty made our stay great. I was looking forward for the dinners at the restaurant, and I was not disappointed. It’s my favorite B&B.
Thank you, thank you ,thank you. Guest like you are what keeps us going. See you next time
5 on September 03, 2014
To stay with Marty & Gaile. I recommend the B & B the absolute best we have stayed in. If the room is available, choose the KING. Everyone at Brook View Manor was fantastic! If you have ever had dinner at a 5 Star restaurant, Make a point to eat at My Daughters Place on the first floor. Don't know when we will get back......BUT WE WILL!
4.6 on August 14, 2014
It was a prefect weekend, the drive was short and the B&B was a welcome site, the rooms were clean and very comfortable, I liked the fact that everything was right there. I could have a nice and very enjoyable breakfast (which we did) and after exploring the county side we could come back to a great dinner where everything on the menu was wonderful. The staff makes you feel right at home. We talked it over and we both will go back again for a visit or two.
So glad you had a enjoyable stay, that's what I love to hear. T

This was our second stay at Brookview Manor Inn and it was as lovely as the first time. Gaile and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Marty is an awesome chef. We were very happy that we came here again.
Thank you for your kind review. Looking forward to your next visit
4.2 on July 23, 2014
Brookview is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The food was off the chart in excellence and for a reasonable rate. The building is an old landmark and is quaint. Marty, Gaile and staff are great. Guests should not expect modern accommodations. I would definitely stay there again.
4.2 on June 04, 2014
We spent a weekend here to celebrate our 27th Anniversary, making the decision primarily on reviews and the listing of amenities. Although the Manor can use a bit of a cosmetic face-lift on the exterior (peeling paint, mostly), everything else is wonderful and in good repair. We spent two nights in Room 11 in the carriage house (with a Jacuzzi) and it was delightful. Dinner on Friday evening in "My Daughter's Place" was truly outstanding - a gourmet feast of escargot, scallops and a cioppino that was out of this world! ...and be aware that the on-line menu does not reflect all of the current offerings. Both breakfasts were equally scrumptious affairs - I have never enjoyed a French toast as much as I did Marty's version. Gaile was a delightful hostess and the entire staff was similarly friendly and accommodating. All around, it was a great stay and I would highly recommend it!

The Inn is in need of updating, it is beginning to look a little shabby around the edges. The owners and staff, like always, were wonderful.
You are correct and we had starting painting again in the spring.A little brighter, but still yellow The porch and all outside staircases were just repainted also. Our biggest project was adding the gazebo and rebuilding the stairs at the carriage house. Brookview is over 115 years there is always something on the list to renovate. Hope to see you again soon.

We came here to do the murder mystery weekend and it was FANTASTIC! The entire staff was great, especially the bartender, Paul! We had so much doing the murder mystery, we hope to go back!

My wife and I spent Veterans Day weekend at the Brookview Manor Inn and had a great time . The staff was very accomodating and made us feel as if we were with family. We stayed in the Fireplace Room on the second fall, it was plenty big and the fireplace made for a cozy atmosphere, although I was hoping it was a wood burning fireplace the gas one was very easy to control. We really couldn't use the large porch and swing because it was pretty cold that weekend but if and when we return we will definitely take advandtage of it. The breakfasts were fantastic, Belgian waffles the first morning and pumpkin and creamcheese stuffed French toast the second, both days with eggs, sausage, mini muffuns, fruit and of course coffee, tea and OJ. We ate dinner at My Daughter Place, which is the restaurant located in the B&B, the food was good, I had steak one night and chicken the other, and I cleaned my plate both nights. My wife had the pork and seafood stew and she enjoyed both, I can't remember exactly what they were called but the chicken, steak and pork were on the regular menu and the seafood stew was a special. All in we would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a nice getaway weekend in the Poconos. We hiked at Bushkill Falls which wasn't faraway, about 30 minutes, and if you like to ski there are plenty of slopes within 30 minutes. John & Teri, Seaford, NY

My wife and I had such a wonderful time last weekend. We went for a murder mystery weekend, and the event surpassed our expectations. The food was wonderful, and the staff made everyone feel at home. I highly recommend this for a fun and relaxing weekend away.

As usual, mary and Gail were terrific and the food was fantastic as ever.

Very friendly staff; wonderful breakfasts and dinner. We will return
2.8 on October 12, 2013
In all, I enjoyed my stay here. The owners were very friendly and outgoing to make my stay very pleasant. The state of the property is quite quaint and relaxing, however, I hope it is in a transition stage, in that,it needs a bit of work on the paint and other physical attributes of the property. The Murder Mystery , in my opinion, should have been included in the price of the weekend. The "included" dinner was somewhat limited in choices and the included breakfasts were very good but again, limited in options.

My husband and I had a wonderful end of September get away weekend at the Brookview Manor. It was our second Murder Mystery weekend. Food was wonderful, our hosts Marty and Gaile were gracious and accommodating and we had so much fun interacting with the other guests. My husband requires gluten free meals and Marty made superb GF food throughout our stay. We will be back!

As a weekend getaway for myself and my other half, I elected to go to the Poconos. I booked the best room at the brook view manor, which while spacious, appeared not to have been updated in quite a while. We arrived slightly later than expected, and Gaile was very accommodating. She directed us to our room, but told us the fireplace was only for ambience, that they had turned off the heat because others had turned on both the fireplace and the AC when using it in the past. Unfortunately, that was one of the reasons I had specifically requested this room,a dn had been wiling to pay for it. Regardless, upon entering the room, which is very spacious, we found that several window screens we not secular in place, and windows that were accessible to outside stairs and the roof did not have locks on them. Other windows that were less accessible, no easy access, did have locks on them. The bathroom was huge, but with standard shower/tub, toilet and small vanity. The water temp fluctuated between lukewarm, cold and hot from minute to minute so that made it a little tough to manage at a comfortable level. There are cracks in the tub porcelain, tiles were old. Food, both breakfast and dinner was awesome as was the camaraderie with the other guests. Overall, I wouldn't spend the money on this room again, as it really wasn't up to my expectations.
5 on September 06, 2013
The owners were extremely friendly and did everything to make my stay relaxing and enjoyable. The husband is a master chef and the food could not have been any more creative or delectable. The location was ideal for convenient sightseeing or shopping.
5 on August 28, 2013
We went up for a quiet weekend for the chaos of the Fall and it was soooooo nice! everything was so calm clean and friendly. we had the room with claw foot tub across the way... it was no problem. didn't really run into anyone in the hall at the same time.. and the tub was so cute. it was well worth it.. the food was amazing! even here in nyc, ,you hardly find food even HALF as good as Marty's food and for half the price of NYC!!!!! all in all... it was great.. Gail and Marty made us feel very much at home.
3.4 on August 22, 2013
Brookview Manor is located in the heart of the Poconos and the surrounding area is beautiful. Gaile and Marty are very pleasant people and welcoming. The people that work there are very friendly. The house is 112 years old and has a fascinating history. Inside the house is very cozy. Marty is a fantastic culinary chef. His dinners and his breakfasts are 5 stars all the way. The room we stayed in was lovely.My only complaint is the cleanliness. The porch should be cleaned off on a daily basis, cobwebs and dirt. Because the weather is so beautiful you'll want to open your windows. The windowsills needed to be cleaned out. All in all, I would recommend this bed and breakfast.
5 on August 14, 2013
Great fall breakfast made by Marty - yummy! Gaile and makes you feel like family. Decor is lovely and everything has a story. The rooms are pretty and the grounds are also tastefully decorated.
5 on August 05, 2013
This is our 3rd visit to Brookville Manor Inn and each time we immediately know why we came back. Our hosts are gracious, friendly and welcome us as if we are family. The one owner is a chef and his food is absolutely delicious and you never walk away from this Bed and Breakfast without wishing you could stay longer. Clay and Carolyn Marks
4.6 on June 30, 2013
Marty and Gaile are wonderful hosts, very comfortable in conversation and very accomodating. The Inn is also My Daughters Restruant on weekends, with Marty as the chef. His breakfasts were beautifully presented. They were fine with us sleeping in and choosing what time to eat. I hope to stay here again.
5 on May 20, 2013
We stayed here for the first time and loved the personal touch of Gail and Marty! They are both a lot of fun! We got there on a Friday and settled in and ate a GREAT dinner. Talked to the owners for a little while and made our way back to our room. The room was very nice, it was quiet and we were able to relax. We woke up to a wonderful breakfast and off shopping and site seeing. We will return and hope to be able to get in on a murder mystery weekend! THANK YOU for the relaxing time there, we felt like family!

We just celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary at the best bed and breakfast we have ever visited. From the house architecture and old world charm to the sumptuous breakfasts and dinners everything went above and beyond our expectations. But the jewel crown was the presence of the owners, Marty and Gaile. They are fantastic people who made our stay so enjoyable. They are great hosts who constantly made sure our stay would be memorable. We can't wait to return.
4.6 on May 08, 2013
This was a great bed and breakfast! The owners were wonderful and friendly. When we go back to the are, we will certainly want to be at the Brookview manor again.

What can I say I was happy with everything the Inn offered. Marty and Gail were excellent professionals, the food was top notch, the service was great, the rooms were clean. The decor was charming. We would definitley go back. We had a wonderful weekend. Bob

Spent a February weekend at brookview . The food was wonderful! Thanks Gayle and Marty!!
4.2 on February 20, 2013
I booked our trip and did not know what to expect. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. The breakfast was terrific and the rooms were clean and cozy. The outside of the building looks like it could use some repair but I had no complaints. The main area has a bar and several rooms to relax. My wife and I would stay there again.
4.6 on December 16, 2012
We meet friends at the Brookview Mannor for a Murder Mystery Weekend. Oh the fun we had. The place was a quaint beautiful place. The people were welcoming and the activities were fun! I cannot wait to go back for another weekend!
4.6 on November 19, 2012
Gaile greeted me at the door and toured me round the first floor. She is so hospitable, and knowledgeable about the house, furnishings and the area. I felt perfectly at home and relaxed. This is a lovely 112 year old house, gas fireplaces everywhere, antiques abound, cozy sitting areas, a bar built into the Victorian tower. Indoor and out door dining. Then I was ushered to my beautiful room with gas fireplace, four poster bed and wing-back chair and private bath. After settling in I returned to the living area and porch to lounge and crossword while waiting for a friend to arrive. The B and B was on a generator following Sandy's devastation of trees and power lines in the Poconos. Not a glitch in service. Everything worked. Marty, in his grandiloquent, whimsical fashion manned the kitchen with humor and a booming voice. His cooking matched his style, elegant, generous, delectable. The Superstorm caused many cancellations from the greater NY area so sadly the Murder Mystery weekend was also cancelled. There were several couples who made it. All were delightful dinner companions and friendships kindled in the glow of fireplaces, food and wine. I will return in January or February for the Murder Mystery Weekend. Highly recommended.

4.2 on November 11, 2012
This B & B is cozy, clean, and is a great place to spend a weekend away from home. Gaile and Marty were both so welcoming and friendly, and really wanted to make sure that all of their guests had a wonderful experience. As a foodie from Philly, the food was fantastic, although service was occasionally on the slow side. I highly recommend eating dinner here every night if you can! My only issue was that there was an uncovered glass panel above our room door, so if the hall light was left on at night, the light came right into our bedroom. That problem, however, is easily fixable. I would absolutely suggest you choose the Brookview Manor if you want a homey B & B with great food.
4.4 on October 15, 2012
Recently stayed at Brookview Manor - first time ever in a B & B. I was very impressed and will return. Gaile and Marty are phenomenal hosts, and the food was amazing! If you are staying through Sunday though, there is no dinner service that night so make plans to eat elsewhere; there are plenty of choices within a 10 mile radius. Thanks for a great weekend Gaile & Marty!!!

Definitely will return for another stay. Close to many great hiking trails and quaint towns.
5 on August 22, 2012
We are a couple from Spain and love rural tourism. We have to say this place is one of the best we've ever been. The room was beautiful, and the service awesome! Breakfast outstanding too. I highly recommend it!
4.4 on August 15, 2012
My wife and I stayed for two weekend nights and enjoyed everything, especially the friendly owners and excellent food. The inn is a historic mansion and carriage house, and the main house has an excellent restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was muffins, eggs, fruit and a different entree each morning, enough food to keep you going until dinner. Dinner at the restaurant was a nice surprise, excellent quality and range of choices fro a small country inn. The owners take real pride in their place and are full of useful information on the area. We will be back.

The owners of the property couldn't be more pleasant. The food they served was excellent. Eat the breakfst, but be sure to have dinner there as well! We will be back next year.

A cozy and relaxing place to just hang out. Lovely common areas, including a glassed-in wrap-around porch. Attentive service and outstanding gourmet breakfast -- we will return for dinner the next time we are in the area. Recommend spending a little more for the second-floor rooms with larger windows and views.
3.8 on July 01, 2012
We stayed at the Brookview Manor of our anniversary. We choose this place for its historic value, close to shops and attractions and for piece and quiet. The breakfasts were excellant and hardy. The inn keepers were friendly and attentive. The porch with the swing is romantic and peaceful. My only negative is that in the description they state that they are off the road. True but not far enough. They are more up a hill and not far enough from the road where we heard cars, trucks and motorcycles. However between them you can hear the sound of the babbling river. A must stay. Can't wait to go back.
5 on June 13, 2012
Having needed a nice quiet atmosphere to conduct a meeting and do some group writing, this place stood out. Gail and Marty are extremely friendly, and met our few needs without delay. This place has a charm about it that has to be experienced, and the breakfast was nothing short of delicious. We will definitely be returning for a murder mystery weekend and making this place a must attend on a regular basis.
5 on June 10, 2012
Your host and hostess make you feel just like family...The food was out of this world...we ate at My daughters place one of our nights and the food was great.
5 on May 23, 2012
The owners were friendly, courteous, and accommodating. It was quiet, relaxing, and I wish we could do this once a month. The breakfasts were delicious and they give you a lot. The restaurant inside the Bed and Breakfast was outstanding. It was one of the best places I've eaten. The rooms were beautiful and clean and everyone there was friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone!
5 on May 06, 2012
We enjoyed ourselves very much. If you want a romantic get-a-way with out all the noisy hotels or motels. This by all means is the spot. Very quanit and lovely. The staff was very nice and on top of every need and want. We will be returning on our next aniversary! oh and the food was excellent!

I had a wonderful time up in the inn. It was so nice to get away from the noise of the suburbs. I promise to come back!

We were a little bit hesitant at first about staying at a bread and breakfast, since we've never dont it before. But it turned out to be a nice weekend. The room was comfortable and relaxing and the breakfast was tasty. No complaints and I'd definitely do it again.

This inn is perfect for a getaway from the NYC Metropolitan Area. Turn your cell phone off and enjoy the peace and quiet that this inn and the surrounding area provides. Restaurant in inn is VERY GOOD. Gaile and Marty are a pleasure as country hostess and host. We would recommend this inn to anyone looking for a close and affordable getaway. -John and Maria

my wife and i went to celebrate our 5 yr anniversary and expected a nice fall getaway. instead we were in for a winter wonderland. the owners Gail and Marty were very accomadating. On Saturday night there was 6in of snow on the ground and the restaurant staff couldn't make it in but Marty opened the restaurant (My Daughters Place) just for my wife and I. Thats why we'll be back again!!!!!

Homey,yet elegant! Gaile and Marty are excellent host, hostess and chef!
4.2 on October 19, 2011
The best aspect of this B&B are the owners. They make an extra effort to entertain and help you have the best visit to the area possible. I should include the staff, as well, who were all genuinely friendly, efficient, and striving to help. Sure, like most B&B's that we've been too, this one had a few minor faults, but the it more than makes up for any possible minor faults with it's charm and atmosphere. We also really liked their in-house restaurant. My favorite dish was the Chicken Melli-melli, or some similar name. It was maybe the best chicken I've ever had, absolutely addictive. Most other things we tried were either excellent or very good. Good wine list, too. And all very fairly priced. Thumbs-up from both of us.
4.6 on October 13, 2011
This was our first time visit to a Bed and Breakfast and we are hooked. We could not have had a better experience. The host and hostess were so friendly we actually felt like we were friends staying at their house. Such a quaint place nestled in the woods...just what we wanted. And the food was terrific! Can't wait to go back.

For twenty years in the late 20th Century I was the Postmaster at Canadensis. Many days I bicycled fourteen miles and passed the Brookview on my way to work. Talking to Minnie Edwards, who was the Brookview for many, many years, I told her that the aromas of breakfast as I peddled past caused my bicycle to pull toward the kitchen. "Anytime, postmaster, she said, any time that bicycle pulls you in the Brookview, don't fight it. Delighted to have both of you for breakfast." It was, every time, delicious. Such memories!!

We came in for a wedding at SkyTop Ranch. Gaile was very pleasant and personable and made us feel very comfortable. They were very helpful with information concerning the area. The food was excellent and a great surprise. I would definitely recommend Brookview Manor and have already told several people about it.

This place met my expectations and especially the breakfast provided was fabulous. Marty and Gail have done a good job, and their staff is courteous and friendly. Even though not much of a view of the brook, place is quite, peaceful and recommended for couples.

The owners are wonderful and such a pleasure to talk to and do business with. Marty's cooking is amazing! Both Gaile & Marty are very accommodating - we'll be back!

My Husband and I were looking for a quick getaway for the weekend and enjoyed ourselves. The room was nice and we enjoyed the food both nights. We would consider going back a second time.
3.8 on August 26, 2011
Oh, yes, and the breakfast is top-rate. Fresh, filling, and delicious! The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated (we peeked into a few of the others!), the bathrooms were clean and had everything we needed, the grounds have shady and sunny spots to walk and lounge, and the corkscrew and wine glasses in the rooms were a nice touch. The only complaint I have is the lack of common space to just hang out or chat with other guests. The entire downstairs is given over to My Daughter's Place restaurant during the dinner hour. The food was fabulous, but it would be nice for the B&B guests to have a room to relax in aside from the individual bedrooms. All in all, though, we'll be back!
1.6 on August 11, 2011
We were expecting a romantic getaway, but we were very dissapointed. The room was small, old, and very smelly. The wall paper was peeling off the walls, the carpet needed cleaning, and the bed linens were covered in stains. In the bathroom paint was chipping and mold was growing. There is definiate potentinal but there are a lot of updates in order to make guests feel more comforatable. We have stayed in other B&B's that were clean and cozey and we excepted the same from this one. The innkeepers were very nice and I do hope that they can make the needed changes.
4.4 on August 10, 2011
We spent just two nights and two mornings at Brookview Manor Inn and we are already planning to return. Number 1 was the breakfast! It was delicious everyday and you know what made it the best? The care and love that went into making it. Chef Marty is excellent! The room we were in was also great and Gaile was a great host in making sure we had everything we needed. Very relaxing and cozy!
3.6 on August 10, 2011
I understand that a family owned and operated bed and breakfast of this size will have some flaws in some of the rooms, but the food and service more than made up for that. The rooms are clean. The hot tubs are beautiful. The setting is lovely and peaceful. The food is AMAZING! The portions are so big; I think I gained 2 pounds in 2 days. It’s so good, you just can’t stop yourself. Marty also goes out of his way to cater to those of us with food restrictions. I received special, gluten free meals prepared just for me. We plan on visiting Brookview Manor annually. Next time, we’ll stay a little longer. By Tara Deihm

Visiting our kids at camp we decided to give this lovely b and b a visit. Loved the friendly owners and staff ready to give suggestions and directions. Breakfast was great on day one, but I had to opt out on day 2 due to a meeting. Usually guests in bed and breakfasts are asked when they would like to have breakfast, but this one had set hours which were too late for 3 guests that morn.Room and bath in cottage were spotless. we opted for a less expensive room which was small, but spent little time there. Nice porch and common room for hanging out.

What an unexpected pleasure to happen on this charming and very welcoming B & B.

Marty and his wife were great hosts. We laughed with them and their brand of humor. Story after story, along with Marty's cooking which is locally known as a great chef. The Veal was great, the T-Bone better..deserts forget about it 5 star stay. When you first come in you say wow - great will be back again...Jerry and Maureen.

We dropped our daughter off at summer camp and with the drive too long to make it back home the same day, we decided to try Brookview Manor Inn. What a wonderful place to relax at! Marty and Gaile were the greatest innkeepers we have ever encountered! They were charming and very hospitable. They also serve dinner in "My Daughters Place" which is on the premises. They happened to be serving dinner that night and so we stayed. We could not have gone anywhere else and had a finer dinner! Did I mention that Marty is a trained culinary chef? With dinner being so outstanding, I couldn't wait for breakfast in the morning. Without a doubt, that was the finest breakfast I've ever eaten! Thanks Gaile and Marty and congrats on that new gran-baby!!

This will be the fourth visit and the third murder mystery weekend. The Inn is all you can ask for, the help and friendliness of Galy, Marty,Melissa, and everyone is beyond what you can ask for and the meals are outrageous. Wh have reccommended this B&B to friends and they have passed it along th their friends. No worry hurry up and book Mike

Everything about the place was terrific. The friendliness of the owners (Gaile and Marty) were highly outstanding and the meals that Marty served showed attention to not only detail in the presentation, but the taste as well. The rooms as expected, were not to big nor to small considering the occasion. My wife loved the Fireplace Room and wants to know when I am bringing her back for another weekend getaway. The relative location to the surrounding site (shopping, trail walking, etc) is perfect. Plenty of things to do and see within a 30-45 minute radius of Brookview Manor, with a lot to do inside the 30 minute distance range. Over all, my wife and I enjoyed the quiet getaway of Brookview Manor and are looking forward to returning real soom.

Marty and Gaile are wonderful hosts and the house is just wonderful. Its close to everything. We are going to be returning again in a couple of week. So Fun. The Resturant is great for breakfest and dinner as well... all i can say for that is yummmy. :)

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Brookview Manor for the 3 nights. We stayed in the King suite (thanks for the upgrade Gaile!). Gaile and Marty are wonderful hosts--very friendly, warm and accommodating. Their whole staff is great and they gave us a tour of the property and showed us around the room. The rooms could use some upgrades (some of the TV remotes don't work and some of the lights didn't work as well) but the room overall was fantastic. The breakfasts are to die for! Marty is an amazing cook and well worth getting downstairs to the dining room at 9am. Morning chats with Marty were great and the history of the King suite is very interesting. The inn is very close to the ski resorts, horseback riding and all major shopping areas & casino. Our stay was amazing and we will certainly be going back! Hopefully it doesn't snow the day were leaving the next time lol

This B&B is outstanding. It is so peaceful, and yet so fun. We stayed the weekend for a murder mystery and boy did we have fun! We will definately be coming back for another! The place was clean, Gaile and Melissa were great hostesses, and Marty makes the best food around! Can't wait to go again in the summer! ~Jen & Matt

My husband and I stayed at Brookview Manor a few weekends back and we really enjoyed our stay! The food was excellent and we loved our room! Only issues I would mention would be that I could hear the woman in the room next to us coughing-not very soundproof-and our room was very dusty. Other than that, the room was clean and I would definitely stay there again! We had a huge breakfast both mornings and a wonderful dinner both nights.

We went for a murder mystery weekend. There were only 4 couples staying there but we had a wonderful time.
5 on January 02, 2011
My partner and I have stayed with Gail and Marty twice, and we feel like we have known them for years. The food is excellent at the restaurant, the rooms are extremely comfortable, and the hospitality is lovely. Gail is a great hostess who gives lots of personal time and attention to guests while Marty is busy in the kitchen. She knows everything to know about the area, and what she doesn't know, she looks up. She'll help you plan a really nice stay. And Melissa, the "daughter" of the restaurant, "My Daughter's Place," is a personable and excellent barista who makes a good G&T and takes excellent photos of guests. A good place to stay if you want homey and extravagant comfort, good food, and easy access to area attractions.

The Inn has incredible food. The rooms need maintenance to spruce up their appearance. The lack of cell phone access is a downer. Staff and owners are superb.

Would definitely recommend Brookview Manor Inn and absolutely would stay there again. Gaile and Marty were wonderful people, very friendly and welcoming. Enjoyed conversation with them over breakfast. The food was outstanding! At the Inn, they do have paranormal experiences, which we are not in to, however they did stay away from the rooms and were respectful of visitors. Overall, a great bed and breakfast to stay in, but Gaile and Marty certainly make it that way...thanks for a great visit.

Evan with all the resturants in the area you cant beat the service style and most of all Martys cooking

Innkeepers Gail and Marty Markowitz are delightful people. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Inn needs some sprucing up (i.e. air conditioning units updated, outdoor steps need to be fixed).

My boyfriend and I went here for 3 nights in March during my Spring Break. It was a very pleasant experience. The innkeepers are friendly and Marty cooks delicious, filling breakfasts and chatted with us each morning. Our favorite breakfast was the stuffed pumpkin french toast... yummy. We stayed in the Library Room, and it was nicely decorated with antiques and there were recent magazines as well as different books in the room. The bathroom was across the hallway in this room (all the other rooms have their own inside the room), and it had a neat claw foot bathtub. This B&B gave us a friendly, quiet, relaxing atmosphere and was only 10-15 miles from all the 'civilized' parts of the Poconos (like parks, the casino, downtown areas, malls). I would recommend this to others and we will be back again.

The service was amazing. The innkeepers, Marty and Gaile, were down to earth and friendly and provided great service and accomodation upon arrival. The room was spectacular. Truly a peaceful, relaxing stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed over New Year's Dec 31-Jan 2 2010 in the Victorian room #1. From the moment we arrived til our check-out, the service was impeccable. The room was so much better than what the photos show - it was spacious, clean, with extra 2 rooms and the bathroom was fantastic. The sunroom was a great addition too - we really enjoyed fireplace there. It was nice that there were some snacks, sodas and fridge in the room. The house is gorgeous and is well kept. And the breakfasts --oh, how can i ever forget their breakfasts :scrambled eggs, fruit, pancakes, hot muffins, toasts. We will definitely recommend our friends and family to visit this place and will come back in the summer. The only issue we had was with bad wireless reception throughout the area -- neither AT&T nor Verizon or T-mobile work, so if you can leave without cell phone, it wouldn't be a big distraction. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! -Yelena and Gennadiy

What a pleasure to spend your first Bed & Breakfast experience with Gaile and Marty. What pleasant and friendly people and their daughter "Detective Noodles" is blast. Besides a beautiful place and great food (I am a pickey eater because of a throat condition) the food was excellent and Marty was all to glad to share his receipes. The Murder Mystery was a blast and we had so much fun participating. What a way to get to know a bunch of strangers. We even got to see a bear in very close range. I would recommend the Brookview Manor Inn to anyone and I definately will be back again and very soon. If you have a chance to catch a murder mystery weekend, don't hesitate unless you do not like a good time. What a pleasant surprise I walked into when I went there. My first experience was one of the most memorable I have had in a long time. Thank You All. Julia Punte

What a wonderful weekend getaway! The room was clean and fashionably decorated. Gaile and Marty were extremely welcoming and personable. We appreciated their attention to detail, the delicious breakfast and the peaceful sunsets while we were overlooking the brook. Even though Canadensis is a small town there were plenty of things to do during the weekend. Our stay was so relaxing and we plan on returning as soon as possible!
