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!

In a medium bowl mix dry ingredients.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar and egg, and beat by hand until well mixed.  Blend in sour cream and vanilla.  Add mashed bananas and mix until blended.  Add flour mixture and stir just until combined, taking care not to overmix.  Mix the streusel ingredients in small bowl, set aside.

Pour half the batter into the greased loaf pan and spread evenly.  Sprinkle about two-thirds of the streusel over the batter in the loaf pan.  Slowly add the remainder of the batter, trying to pour evenly.  Sprinkle the remainder of the streusel over the top.

Bake for 50-60 minutes.  Can be checked for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center, and it comes out clean.
