Welcome!

The James Manning House Bed & Breakfast, located in the Lake Region of the Pocono Mountains, welcomes visitors to Historic Wayne County, Bethany and Honesdale, PA.  Guests will find our 194 year old federal-style house to offer all modern amenities along with charming, eclectic antique and country furnishings.  We offer common rooms for reading or conversation, gardens for strolling, and of course comfortable sleeping quarters with private baths.  Our hot, hearty breakfasts are prepared fresh from local farm produce and our own garden harvests when available.

The area offers much to do from historic museums, to the great outdoors of the Delaware River.  Visitors, young and old, enjoy the Wayne County Historical Society, Dorflinger Glass Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary, the Roebling Bridge, and Zane Gray Museum just to mention a few.  For the adventurous, raft down the Delaware, hike Prompton State Park, ski Elk Mountain, zip line, snow shoe, bike, fish the lakes or hunt the state game lands.  Maybe your visit includes a concert at Bethel Woods, the original site of Woodstock, or one of Honesdale’s street events, such as Roots and Rhythm, Harvest and Heritage Days, Arts and Antiques weekend, or just a great event at the Cooperage or Ritz Theater in nearby Hawley, PA.

Our historical bed and breakfast offers you tranquility and comfort. When you arrive for your stay, you will find a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, the perfect hotel lodging alternative. At the James Manning House your hosts, Warren and Janet Heinly, look forward to welcoming you with the warm, friendly hospitality unmistakable to their PA Dutch heritage.

Come be our Guest!

Love Commandments

Dan CupidThe paper is old, faded and worn.  It was found in an old box with some photos.  The photos were scenery and people unknown, judging by the clothing I’d say in the 40’s.  The text was typewriter typed.  The folds in the paper created holes, it’s been folded and unfolded many times I’m sure.  I can picture a young woman reading and laughing, perhaps before her beau is off to war. It’s clever and shows signs of respect, from an era long gone, but romantic and kind. Perhaps this Valentine spirit will warm your heart,too.

The Ten Commandments of Love

  1. Remember your sweetheart.
  2. Thou shalt not make GooGoo eyes at other girls, or boys.
  3. Thou shalt not Tease.
  4. Thou shalt not love to kiss, but kiss to love.
  5. Thou shalt not do things in public, but in private.
  6. Thou shalt not make love to other girls, one will do.
  7. Thou shalt not wink at other girls, or boys.
  8. Thou shalt not let a girl or boy guess, but let him or her know you love them.
  9. Thou shalt not ask for a kiss but take one.
  10. Always kiss a girl when she is smiling, because she has a gentle love.

young loveThe penalty for reading this is that you must pay the penalty dan cupid                                            of one kiss to the one who lets you read this.  If he or she objects take two kisses.

Signed,   Dan Cupid
