I stay here regularly while traveling to the area for work. The atmosphere is always warm and inviting and the excellent breakfast get us off to a great start. Jovanna, Ross, and their staff maintain lovely accommodations that are relaxing to come back to after being out all day. In addition to the comfy bed, hot shower, and delightful sitting... More

It's impossible to decide which is better; the amenities or the hospitality. I travel a great deal for my job and have rarely, if ever, stayed anywhere I felt more relaxed and insanely well attended to. The entire experience of staying at the Mansion District Inn makes for a wonderful break from "typical" travel. How often does anyone ever spring... More

The owner told interesting, historical stories during breakfast about the Mansion and the town of Smethport. If you are a coffee lover, they had numerous varities of coffee for you to sample.

Everything about the mansion and the service was excellent. The breakfast was outstanding and we were treated more like royalty than hotel guests. Ross and Jovanna provided a warm atmosphere and interesting history of the mansion district of Smethport.

For our visit to Smethport, my husband and I chose to stay at the Mansion District bed-and-breakfast. I cannot say enough about our experience. The owners are exceptional people, the room was accommodating and the breakfast was delectable. We plan to visit again in the near future. Thank you Ross and Jovanna. Cassandra ~~

I travel to Smethport on business regularly and have stayed at the MDI many times. This facility is well restored and maintained and has a lot of character. The Innkeepers offer outstanding customer service. The breakfast is unbelievable. I recommend this Inn without hesitation.

Staying here for two nights was a wonderful experience! We were welcomed by Ross and Jovanna, as if we were their personal guests, into their grand home. This is a Smethport mansion, with beautiful woodwork, paneling, trims, and details. Ross and Jovanna had wine and glasses out, as a welcome to traveling guests. In our room, there was also a...

I am a Philadelphia attorney, and had an important meeting in Smethport. The chief executive of the entity I was dealing with recommended the Mansion District Inn as a place for me to stay. At first, I was not sure about staying at a B&B for work, but now I cannot recommend it highly enough. The service and accommodations are... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by Jovanna who immediately made us feel extremely welcomed. The décor of the B&B was very warm and inviting. The personal touch of the wine and freshly baked cookies added to the experience. Meeting Ross the following morning during a delicious gourmet breakfast and fabulous coffee was entertaining as well as informative. His knowledge of... More

A historian's dream...I recently stayed at the Inn for work purposes and cannot wait to re-schedule a trip for my husband and I. Jovanna and Ross are delightful, accommodating, and a wealth of information about the history of the Inn and Smethport. I truly enjoyed the scrumptious breakfast (made to order) and the storytelling by Ross. It definitely helped that... More
