We have stayed at the James Manning many times over the last few years. What originally caught my attention about the inn was Warren & Janet's ability to serve me a gluten-free breakfast while also satisfying the needs of other guests. We hope always to be able to stay at this outstanding inn whenever we visit Honesdale.
This was the second time for us. If we could give it 10 stars we would. Warren and Janet are the best! The food is fantastic, the place is clean and comfortable. We can't say enough good things about it. We will be back and won't stay anywhere else when we are in or near Honesdale.
Janet and Warren are fantastic hosts. Everything about the James Manning House is outstanding. This was the third stay for my wife and me. We will be making a fall trip again next year. Bob and Kathy H.
The B&B was more than we had hoped for. It looked very nice on the web site, but experiencing it first hand places it second to none. We needed a longer stay to see everything and hear the story that went with them. The hosts, Janet and Warren, were very accommodating with our late arrival and we enjoyed their company while we were there. Be prepared for an outstanding, homemade breakfast!
We stayed at James Manning House for the first time. Been to others this one of the top 3. Staying in a quiet zone was what we were looking for. We had no really plans and Janet and Warren helped with suggestions. Tne owners supplied the guest with bottled, spring or homemade flavored water. There was cookies available too. We enjoyed our stay.
From check-in to check-out we had a wonderful time at this lovely B&B. The house and rooms are quaint and well decorated. The location is perfect (one of the coolest small towns in America according to multiple publications) as there are plenty of shops and awesome restaurants just a short walk away. Plenty of hiking and other outdoor activities are just a short drive away (5 minutes), As others have said, breakfast each morning was excellent. Adriane and Spencer were amazing hosts and we will definitely be back in the future.
My husband and I stayed at James Manning over a recent holiday weekend and had a fantastic experience. We stayed in the Wayne Room which was incredibly spacious yet cozy. The fireplace was a lovely touch. We really enjoyed how friendly and helpful Warren and Janet were as hosts, and the breakfasts were fantastic (incredible veggie omelet, homemade blueberry muffins, veggie pancakes, chicken sausage, fresh fruit, OJ, and coffee). We felt very pampered! A highly recommended BnB if you're looking for a cozy, affordable, welcoming, and delicious experience!
Our room was lovely. I was able to peek in at all the other rooms and they are all lovely. The owner was very helpful, friendly, laidback and not intrusive, which totally matched our style. The breakfasts were delicious and I loved that there was a small room where you could make your own tea or coffee any time of day and also have access to a refrigerator and water. The bed was SO comfortable, with high quality bedding. We loved hanging out with the resident dog and cat. All in all a very enjoyable stay. Thank you!
A lovely place in a lovely town. I can't say enough good things about it. Everything was just perfect. Adriane and Spence were terrific hosts, though I felt so much at home that the host concept almost didn't apply. The property and gardens are beautiful, with a fine porch and deck from which to enjoy them. The interior and rooms are beautifully decorated, and a terrific breakfast starts the day out with a smile. Many thanks to Adriane and Spence!
This was our second visit to the James Manning House B&B. It was like coming home again. Janet and Warren are SO welcoming and accommodating. Breakfast a real treat. Our first visit was in late fall, but this time, in July, their gorgeous yard was in full bloom, and it offered an installation new since our visit two year ago: an elegant pergola with chiminea and the soothing babble of waterfall over rocks. They offered wonderful guidance to things to see and do in the area. We will be back!
We stayed at the Harrington House over the weekend for our friend's wedding. Adriane was very accommodating and made an excellent breakfast ! Her dog is the sweetest!! and we have a very comfortable stay there. It is central to restaurants, stores etc. thank you again !
Our stay was tremendous. Kathy was very hospitable and flexible. She knew the area well and her recommendations were a big help when trying to figure out what to do during our stay. The food was filling and delicious. It was so serene and quiet which made our stay even better
You want so much when you travel. Maybe it isn't realistic. It doesn't matter we all want a lot and during vacation we want more. This was the first time we stayed at a bed and breakfast. For me the whole idea of it was weird so I didn't know what to expect. It was anxious about the whole thing. What we found though was that the whole experience was peaceful and calming. It is really a different experience than staying in a hotel. Warren and Janet are really nice. They are professional and provide a clean and delightful place with great food. You feel comfortable and safe. All of the amenities are there. I even studied at the dining room table one night so for me it was so comfortable like you are at home. That is the key I guess: it feels like home. Even thought it is someone's home it feels like home except you don't do any work. And that is the definition of a good vacation, comfortable and pleasant, right? I think so, so I loved it.
Cozy and comfortable B& B in the heart of Milford. Adriane is very friendly and we felt right at home. Spencer, her dog came along with us on our walks. Her rooms were beautiful appointed, with fireplace in each room. There is a room available 24/7 for coffee, tea, water, etc. Definately on list to return when in the area again.
We were welcomed kindly and the decorations for the Christmas season were so inviting and cozy to kick off the spirit early in the season. I like when festive feeling comes directly after Thanksgiving and is celebrated for weeks before. The food was very good and we were given options for any needs. The sharing of house common rooms felt truly welcoming for evening time outside our room.
We spent a beautiful fall weekend at the James Manning House. From the delicious breakfasts, to the snacks and beverages that were available, we wanted for nothing! The relaxed, and cozy environment was just what we were looking for! Thank you Janet and Warren!
This was our 3rd stay at the James Manning House. My husband and I come to celebrate our anniversary each year(next year is on the books!) . Whenever we travel we stay at Bed and Breakfasts and this is by far the best we have been to. Janet and Warren are the nicest people- warm accommodating and gracious hosts! They handle special requests with ease and have struck the perfect balance between chatting with guests and respecting guests privacy. They clearly enjoy owning and running their Bed and breakfast and their passion shows! No detail is overlooked here and special touches are everywhere. The house and grounds are always beautifully decorated in every nook and cranny for the season, it is meticulously clean –but also very cozy and homey throughout the entire house, to us it feels like coming home. As far as the food- the breakfast menu is creative and the dishes served are filling and delicious with many ingredients from their own garden. If you go away hungry its your own fault!! Fresh baked treats ,beverages and other snacks are available anytime which is a very nice touch. Also be sure to check out Janet’s homemade jams. We always take several jars with us and enjoy seeing what new flavors she has come up with each year. We treasure our time at this BnB each year and would highly recommend it to anyone.
I have spent numerous multi-night stays at the James Manning House over the past two years while visiting family in the area, and it continues to be the most comfortable, most gracious, most enjoyable location available. It is without peer.
My wife and I were traveling to town for a wedding and realized there were no chain hotels nearby. A friend recommended this BNB and we couldn't be happier with the choice. Homemade breakfast was served each morning, and the innkeepers were incredibly accommodating for allergies and special requests. The bed was fantastically comfortable and we were delighted to have a clean, comfortable private bathroom. We also loved the charming decorations and convenient location near town.
We were privileged to stay at the James Manning House this summer for our anniversary. Wonderful accommodations, great breakfast and the peace we were seeking during our short getaway. Warren and Janet are very knowledgable as to local restaurants and attractions. Can't wait to return!
Lovely historic house with charm, interesting antiques, and beautiful gardens. Four rooms with fireplaces, private baths, and comfortable furnishings. The hostess is welcoming, accommodating and serves a "mean" breakfast in the delightful dining room! The inn is located right downtown, so you can walk easily to restaurants and stores. The well-behaved resident dog and cat make appearances, but do not intrude in your space. And the inn is pet-friendly, somewhat unusual in this day and age. Recommend highly.
Adrianne is a wonderful hostesses. The room & house is immaculate and the breakfast was wonderful - best blueberry pancakes & scones EVER. And least I forget - we fell in love with the assistant innkeeper,Spencer.
