My husband and I have stayed in many historic hotels and inns, often furnished with antique and period furniture, but nothing, simply nothing, comes close to the Stegmaier Mansion. Staying here was more like staying in a museum, but without the velvet ropes. Every room is spectacularly decorated with antiques, draperies, statuary, and bric-a-brac. We stayed in Amelia's suite, which... More

Was at an event at the Stegmaier Mansion in Wilkes Barre recently. Very interesting property which hosts events as well as a B&B. I did not see the rooms but am told by many that they are very comfortable and well appointed. The over all reception was well done with various food stations in different rooms. For the crowd of100+... More

This B&B is a lovingly restored mansion. It would take days and days to take in all the details. Reserve in advance for overnight stays. Each month, the mansion hosts special theme events (In January, a Downton Abbey Tea) that are always clever. The atmosphere is high Victorian and elegant. It's a true gem and an unusual stay. A great... More

My husband and I toured this B&B/Mansion on our recent trip to Wilkes-Barre, PA and although it was totally booked and we were not able to stay the night, the owner was kind enough to give us a tour of the mansion. We have been into Victorian history for 30 years and this is one of the most fabulous mansions... More

We stayed here for one night in May in the Amelia's Suite, the most elegant room in the home. This home has exquisite detail, amazing woodworking and furnishings. I have never stayed in a room with such opulence! This was a real treat for both of us. You would have to see this room to understand what I mean. Comfortable... More

Went with my husband to an afternoon tea here for Mother's Day. The place is gorgeous and if we didn't live so close by, I would love to stay there. They did a wonderful job restoring it to its former beauty. The only complaint I have is with the tea itself. we paid $25 each and didn't expect to leave... More

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at this most beautiful B&B! Our room (Amelia's Suite) was fantastic. Our very gracious & accommodating host (Joe) took the time to give us a private tour which we enjoyed so very much including his piano solo! The mansion is breathtaking and we felt like we went back in time when guests were treated... More

From the instant you walk through the gate and up the front steps of the Stegmaier Mansion you know you've made the right choice as to where to stay in Wilkes Barre. When a B & B owner keeps the ironwork fencing and "postage-stamp size" yard attractive, gleaming and well taken care of, and every inch in sight is clean... More

Our ladies group toured the Frederick Stegmaier Mansion yesterday. While we have visited many historic homes, this one will stand our in our minds forever. Never have we seen artistic talent, unique creativeness and historic passion rolled into one beautiful house. This place is truly a treasure that needs to be absorbed slowly--as there is so much to see and... More

This completely renovated B&B is the creme de la creme'. The period fitting furniture, artwork, antiques and just unbelievable. The owner, Joe Matteo, is a perfect host and made me feel completely comfortable. He took the time to show me the other rooms in the house and I can assure you that they are decorated perfectly and are very comfortable.... More
