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.

Innkeeper’s Secret French Toast

1 Loaf Cinnamon Swirl Bread (or raisin)                          10 eggs                                           6-8 oz. cream cheese                                                       1-1/2 c. half & half                           ½ c. maple syrup                                                               8 T. butter, melted                         ½ c. strawberry preserves (or your favorite flavor)

Spray 9×13 inch glass casserole.  Cube bread, and put half in bottom of pan.  Cut cold cream cheese into small pieces and dot across bread.  Drop preserves in small teaspoons across cheese and bread.  Cover with remaining bread cubes. Hand beat the eggs, then mix the remaining ingredients together with the eggs.  Pour the egg mixture over the entire dish.  Press the bread into the egg mixture to absorb.

Refrigerate overnight.  In the morning set the dish out for 20 minutes, bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.  Serves approx. 12.   Sprinkle with powered sugar for serving.raspchocstuffft

Our innkeeping secret is to purchase the variety and seasonal swirl breads from Pepperidge Farms.  We will then adjust the preserve flavors to enhance the bread.  One of our favorite combinations is Chocolate Chip Swirl with Red Raspberry Jam.  When the bread is rich as with the Chocolate Chip, I will reduce the butter to 4 Tbs.
