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!

New Gallery in Town

artgallerySmall towns could stagnate.  However, we feel lucky to live in a small town that continues to change and grow and promote the arts.  Last year a wonderful addition brightened our town: The Great Wall of Honesdale.  A very large blank wall was covered with art from local artists making a wait at a traffic light now an intriguing and wonderful sight.  The arts of music and theater have grown including open mic nights as well as artists from around the country at the Cooperage.  It was exciting to see this new announcement from our Wayne County Creative Arts Council.

Grand Opening - Art-a-Pelago Gallery

Curated by David Harvey, the mission of Art-a-Pelago is to work in synergy with three local businesses.  Art-a-Pelago is a gallery in three parts where the businesses provide access to the arts, and the art enhances the businesses.   The third location, LESVOS at Loose Leaf Pages  627 Main St. Honesdale is scheduled to open in April.  Exhibits at all three locations will change seasonally.  The gallery locations are open during the regular hours of each business and during Second Saturdays in Honesdale.

We are hoping that you will plan a trip to “Eat, Shop, Play and Stay in Honesdale, PA” real soon!
