First time staying here and is everything and more. No detail is too small, the pictures do not give justice to this bed and breakfast. It is beautiful, immaculate and the breakfasts are awesome!

Hi C&M, We love having "local" guests that escape to the nearby forest for R&R. Sometimes we have guests that we feel as if we've been friends for years. Thanks so much for "discovering" Smethport, PA Wilds and the Mansion District Inn. R&J More

We have stayed here several times for business. Ross's and Jovanna's hospitality can't be beat. The house is beautiful. I have stayed in every room in the inn and they are all spectacular. The breakfast is fantastic! I do not eat gluten and Jovanna and her other cooks happily make amazing gluten free quiche, pancakes and omelettes for me. I... More

We've stayed here a number of times while we are working in the area. Every time it is a home away from home were we are welcomed warmly. Everything from the cookies and wine in the evening to the the AMAZING breakfast and phenomenal coffee in the morning makes staying with Ross and Jovanna a highlight of our travels.

This was one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. Ross and Jovanna could not have been better hosts.

The hosts were very hospitable, knowledgeable of the history of Smethport and the Pennsylvania Wilds. The Mansion is very unique, clean and comfortable. Our overnite stay and whirlpool bath was relaxing and refreshing. The service and breakfast was first class. We hope to visit The Mansion again, possibly our 50th, God willing, Larry & GiGi

We had a lovely evening and morning at this beautiful and welcoming inn. Our room was comfortable and very spacious. The breakfast was delicious. More than anything, however, we enjoyed the innkeepers! They are gracious and kind people who made our stay wonderful.
