I'm still not sure how I got so lucky to 'find' this wonderful B&B hidden away in the PA countryside. The James Manning House is a class act - impeccably clean, wonderfully comfortable and managed by two very gracious and friendly inn keepers. The Wayne room was top of the line in comfort - the bed - well hard to describe - soft and cozy while still offering good support. The large room was nicely appointed and the bathroom a fabulous surprise. Expecting perhaps a claw foot tub with hand held shower - I found a fully modern bathroom with a large spotless shower- the bonus - shampoo, conditioner and bath gel dispenser on the shower wall! The grounds of the Manning house beg to be explored - lovely flower gardens, cute pathways leading to an old barn and fabulous old shade trees. As if all of that is not enough...the breakfast offered in the morning was indeed also a 5 star affair. Baked oatmeal, yogurt/fruit parfait, peach coffee cake and endless cups of very good coffee.
Inn Keepers, Janet and Warren were warm, friendly, gracious hosts sharing information about the inn and the surrounding area. Warren provided several suggestions for dinner places and I chose Hotel Wayne - definitely a good choice for a casual 'burger and beer' with attentive service and reasonable prices.
