“Everything I could have wanted in a B&B”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We chose this B&B because of the Tripadvisor rating. To say we were more than satisfied is an understatement. Upon arrival we were greeted by Warren and Janet, our hosts. We were welcomed with the smell of fresh baked cookies for our arrival. Our room was more than expected. It was large, had a fireplace, a private bath and many amenities for our comfort. Another couple also were staying that weekend and it was a pleasure. The common areas are available when you feel like socializing and you also have the privacy of your own room when you want. Warren was full of suggestions for our entertainment in the area as well as dining choices for dinner. Breakfast was always a treat. Janet made a decadent spread of delicious homemade recipes with beautiful trimmings from the garden. We will make this a regular addition to our vacation get aways.

Room Tip: Try to get the Wayne room as it is the largest. All rooms however would have been a pleasure. Some r...

My sister-in-law and I spent this past Saturday night at this lovely B&B. We found the hosts, Janet and Warren, warm and very accommodating. The almost 200 year old Federal home is beautifully maintained and furnished with antiques and old Americana decor. We shared the Wayne room which has a large double bed and a day bed which was great for us. The Wayne room is quite large with a fireplace, large TV/entertainment center and large bathroom. The bathroom was beautifully updated and very comfortable. Janet has supplied the bathrooms with plenty of amenities, and the water pressure great (not always the case in these old homes). The home is set on a beautiful lot with fruit, vegetable and perennial gardens. Breakfast was yummy, with plenty of home made breads and jams. It's also a great value! We will definitely return if we find ourselves in this area of PA again! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: One of the 3 bedrooms has access to a hallway bathroom. We liked the Wayne room because the bathroo...

This is a great B&B. Warren and Janet are wonderful hosts. Very thoughtful and accommodating. We rode our motorcycles there and they were very hospitable and moved things out of their garage so that we could park the bikes inside. The breakfasts we had were very good, thoughtfully prepared and adjusted to the guest's food allergies/preferences. Wonderful common areas on the first floor with a good supply of videos to watch there. Interesting decor throughout, lots of wonderful antiques and unique pieces. The weather didn't cooperate for us to enjoy their outside patio area, which we had hoped to enjoy one afternoon. Will definitely recommend this to our friends and family.

I can't praise this find enough. Janet and Warren are lovely people who take an interest in their guests treating them more like family. They make suggestions for you of where to visit and eat, offered the use of chairs if we needed them for the drive in, spent time finding about us and sharing experiences. This of course goes hand in hand with a stunning location, beautiful house, comfortable and spacious bedroom and delicious breakfast. We will definitely return and look forward to seeing Warren and Janet again. Angela and John, London

This B&B was a wonderful find--- the beautiful grounds and gardens were the perfect place to unwind after a day of travel. Tastefully decorated rooms are exceptionally clean. Breakfast was plentiful, delicious, and food had good presentation. Hosts Janet & Warren are warm and focused on making your stay memorable.

Will definitely be back again! Dawn, Baltimore MD

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the James Manning House July, 2013. We felt very comfortable, relaxed, with our hosts, Janet and Warren Heinly, who treated us with a good balance of personal attention and respect. They have beautifully decorated rooms with just the right amount of charm, history. The breakfast was delicious, with various choices to appease everyone's food preferences. We highly recommend staying at the James Manning House B&B when traveling through northeast Pennsylvania. Ruthann from central PA

This B&B is a very quaint and peasant place to stay when traveling. The rooms are nicely furnished with modern amenities while decorated in a nice B&B style. The hosts are very welcoming and provide a very tasty breakfast.
