It's amazing what can be produced by a team in a small Airstream trailer. I selected to have my 70th birthday at this charming retreat in the woods. Seemed like a good place to gather a family, and I was not one bit disappointed. We reserved four cabins in a row and it was perfect. Yes, the wonderful, old, historic... More

Manka's is not for people who bring their white noise machine everywhere. Or go to sleep with the television on. Manka's is for people who want to curl up by a roaring fire and finally read the book that has been sitting by the bed. Or the couple who wants to sink into a deep cocoon of a four poster... More

At first I was disappointed, considering how much I was paying, but by the time I left I was sorry to go. It's rustic but posh. My room, #10 was huge - more a mini-suite than anything. It had a private deck with a beautiful view, a window seat and table and best of all, a wood burning fireplace. I... More

We stayed in the Inn last night and it exceeded out expectations by far! We followed Michael as he drove to our rustic upstairs "boatman's lodge" on the bay. We enjoyed a fire (already completely prepared with an ample supply of wood). It came equipped with a charming closet beautifully supplied with supplies to make coffee or tea and half... More

Quirky, charming....but certainly not worth $400/night. Excellent breakfast, comfy bed and nice linens, yes. But barely any lighting in the room (7), made it hard to read or see. Industrial handles on the shower---not so charming. Only one vent working on the hot tub. This is an OLD hotel, and I just don't see that it's maintenance and minimal staff... More

I love hotels with personality, and Manka's certainly delivered. I decided to book the Sweet, one of the cheaper rooms, since reviews are so mixed and wanted to check it out before committing to a higher end room. Well, I will definitely be back and want to try all of the rooms! From the hot spiced cider upon check-in to... More

Another wonderful trip to Manka's. We stayed in the Boathouse, too, and damned if they didn't help us with our luggage either. For those of you who stay in "the most expensive hotels" and need help with your luggage, please go somewhere else. It's tough enough getting a room at Manka's. And the coffee-maker worked just fine in October....thank heaven's... More

We stayed four nights at their most expensive accommodations -"The Boat House"- in July 2013. These comments are not about the cost since we usually stay at the most expensive hotels. This property did not come to our high standards. To make a very long list of disappointments into a very few to just prove the point. 1. No offer... More

We stayed at Mankas, cabin 7, for two wonderful nights. It was so quiet, secluded and very romantic. The cabin was beautifully appointed and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. It is luxury from a rustic point of view, which was exactly what we wanted. The fireplace and loaded iPod were the only things we needed! Also, cabin 7 had a... More
