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.

Eagles Landing

Sometimes winter can be a strange month in Northeast PA.  It’s cold, then it’s warm, it snows, or not, or we get stuck in the slush.  All this makes outdoor activities difficult to plan.  Personally, I like the snow.  I like to cross country ski and snowshoe.  Ice skating is fun while others ice fish.  My family enjoys a day of sledding.   So far this winter has been a bust for all those.  However, I’ve found another fun activity, regardless of mother nature.  Eagle watching.  Those majestic birds have made a come back in our area and a day along the river in January and into February will almost always result in a sighting or several.  Bring along your camera.  We have a wonderful organization in our area, Delaware Highlands Conservancy, that has been a predominant factor in the eagles return and is key to learning more about the eagles in our area.  In the winter they also provide bus tours for your benefit.   For more information: http://delawarehighlands.org/component/rsevents/event/97-eagle-trip?Itemid=556
