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.

Do I hear a Distant Train?

Calling all train enthusiasts!  We are happy to talk about the Stourbrige Line getting “back                                                          on track”.  Under new ownership, we will hopefully see

StourbridgeLion_Locomotive_Replica excursions again as soon as next summer.  Our train            has been missed by the town of Honesdale and this is            wonderful news.  The Stourbridge Lion was first run in            Honesdale in 1829. Being the first steam locomotive run in the United States, it is now located in the Smithsonian, but visitors to our town can see a full scale replica in the Wayne County Historical Society. Tourists and local residents alike have fond memories of riding the rails with such distinguished guests as Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.  Many remember trips to see the beautiful fall folliage along the line to Lackawaxen.  As for us we enjoyed seeing and hearing the train, and loved meeting the visitors who came to ride.  Hear more about the story from the local news:  http://wnep.com/2014/12/17/excursion-train-back-on-track/
