The Innkeeper, Holly, was very pleasant and sociable. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding and I enjoyed the conversation with Holly. The Inn is very well maintained and Holly is very hospitable and accommodating. Thank you for the wonderful stay and I look forward to my next visit. Bill

This place was unbelievable. We went out for an evening walk to dinner and came home to fresh baked white chocolate cookies, wine, and coffee. It is truly a beautiful place. Next morning we were treated to a 3 course breakfast complete with fresh baked biscotti and cinnamon French toast with fruit and bacon. Yummy. While enjoying our breakfast we...

We have had the opportunity to stay at the property twice. The first time with Jovanna and Ross and the second time with the new owner Holly. Both times have been amazing. Holly, as the new owner is a gracious hostess and makes you feel comfortable and welcome. The home is well appointed with antiques. Our room was both large...

This place is amazing. Holly McCrary is the new owner operator but it seems like she's perfectly at home and takes great care with attention to all the details. She makes you feel at home in her home. The breakfast is a unique pleasure, you can't get anywhere else. The rooms are warm, spacious and comfortable. The whole house is...

Excellent describes our hosts Jovanna and Ross and their mansion's accomodations. Jovanna gave us a warm welcome which included access to wine or Scotch if we so desired. She had us make ourselves at home while she finished baking the best butterscotch and macadamia cookies we ever had. Breakfast was delicious and Ross' Smethport history lesson was entertaining. It was...

We love being a "fixture" on US Route 6. US Route 6 is the longest US highway running from Cape Cod to California and we often have guests traveling the entire route. A few years ago a US Route 6 author named us the best B&B on US Route 6. We'll take that name proudly. Thanks for making us a...

Since my birthday and our anniversary are in October, we usually try to get away somewhere to enjoy the fall foliage. This year we decided to stay at the Mansion District Inn in Smethport, Pa. on our way back from visiting NY state. Our main goal was to view the fall colors in the Alleghany National Forest. This location was...

We had an absolutely amazing weekend. My partner Rob and I booked this b&b based on the high reviews on trip advisor. We planned the rest of our visit around this. Jovanna's recommendations for a hiking trail was exactly what we needed. I was able to get amazing photographs of Smethport and the surrounding areas. The B&B was spotless the...

Okay. Perfect. That's our goal. To exceed expections. And we so love sharing MDI with creative, talented people. It's one of the best parts of operating a B&B. I always say that its "traveling in reverse".

Reviewed October 11, 2016

Our stay was way above average for B& B accomodations. The "Queen Ann" styling was excellent with all the minute appointments of many historical upgrades. Ross' telling of the original legends of the first Smethport generation who gifted us this mansion was quite informative and uplifting for us Hamlin relatives. It felt like we were sleeping in a 1920 era...

We love having folks with deep Smethport roots return to Smethport and be guests at MDI. And to have Hamlin and Gillett relatives to boot. It just doesn't get any better than this!! Thanks for returning to the home of your ancestors and being our guests at the Mansion District Inn!

The Mansion District Inn was stunning. The hosts were warm and inviting. The food was AMAZING and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We truly enjoyed all of the history they shared with us about the home and the area. I can't wait to go back!
