Manor rooms are located in the main Manor building and provide a classic take on the bed-and-breakfast with their antique furniture and original cypress walls.

They feature four-poster queen or king beds and mountain views.For a more modern respite, go for a La Maisonneuve suite. Each of these country-style suites comes with a gas fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub, a private, wrought-iron balcony and expansive, 20-mile views.

Please note that jackets are required for gentlemen.Casual ambiance can be found at Hanna’s Café or on the Terrace, a stone veranda with a magnificent 20-mile view of the Northern Pocono Mountains.A full gourmet breakfast is served daily and is included in the price of your stay.

How to Get There
Me and my SO visited the French manor as a birthday weekend trip for me. It was a beautiful little place, the room is immaculate and had a great view of the forest. While it did snow quite a bit, I had a great time on this trip. The inn is so nice, and they offer a good list of restaurants in the surrounding area, which was great as it’s sometimes hard to find a good place in Pennsylvania to get some food as it’s all pretty far away. We also had massages at the inn, and the two women who did our couples massage were excellent. They were nice, friendly, professional, and so good at what they do. I highly recommend this place for a nice retreat or weekend trip.
Surprise getaway from my husband. Had no idea of our destination until close to our destination. 18 suites all beautifully furnished,; fireplace, jacuzzi tub, champagne and chocolates for our arrival. In the room fridge was a cheese plate, crackers and grapes as a welcome. We both had excellent massages. Rebecca did mine on the first afternoon, while my hub enjoyed the warmish water pool, inside the spa. My service was so good, I convinced my hub to also have Rebecca give him a massage the next day. Dinner in the elegant dining room, with two fireplaces, was excellent also. Only one other couple in the huge dining room, but I'm sure it gets very full as the weather gets warmer. As for dinner, my husband's scallops were delicious and a huge portion. I had delicious Sea Bass. Breakfast choices were wonderful and we both splurged on calories and had the Eggs Benedict. Small fruit sides were fresh and tasty. Just one comment on the elegant dining...at both our dinner and then breakfast the next morning, the flat ware was a regular sized knife but a salad/dessert size fork. Very strange. Apart from that, our breakfast server, Ivy, was delightful and our visit was brilliant.
My wife and I decided to spend our 20 year anniversary at The French Manor and Inn and a very wonderful time there. Upon arrival, we learned that although we had booked a room, the staff upgraded us to a suite, free of charge, This turned out to be a terrific surprise and really made for a great experience.
Dinner was a superb and quaint experience. The restaurant is elegant, the staff is very prompt and attention to detail I had the duck dinner and the lobster bisque soup - wonderfully done!
The staff was very accommodating - the room came with a complimentary bottle of champagne. Since my wife and I do not drink alcohol, I asked if they would be able to switch it out for sparkling grape juice. They didn't have any, but asked if sparkling non-alcoholic cider was okay. So, they willing swapped it out for us - which was thoughtful. The room also came with brie cheese and fruit - very nice!
We hope to go back again - definitely worth it!
I liked almost everything. Our room was huge and having parking right in front of the spa suite was a definite plus. The jacuzzi tub in the room is great. Nice and big and deep. The balcony is a nice touch. It was nice to have a place to sit outside. The fire place made the room so comfy. Everything was clean. The staff was extremely friendly. We didn’t meet a single staff member who wasn’t wonderful.
The dining room is beautiful. A little too quiet for me. The food was wonderful. Not much of it for the entree. The staff again was very nice and accomodating.
The spa was glorious. The pool is saltwater which I like better than chlorhine. Valerie did my massages and I think she was great. Friendly, great pressure and asked questions to make sure I was happy. I thought she was very nice. Julianna did my manicaure. Came out nice.
I wish there was a more casual place on site to eat. After getting a massage and relaxing all day I didn’t want to get showered right away and get all dressed up for dinner. Also, I need lunch options. There is a Johns Italian eatery that delivered and side note, their food was also awesome.
As a big person I would have preferred to check a box or something for a bigger robe. I had to ask which is uncomfortable but the staff was great about it. Same goes for the chairs in the dining hall. I know it may not be a problem for many but just in case. An option for the girlfriends get away should be at least two beds. The rooms are large enough.
The atmosphere and setting outside is just beautiful. Off the main roads and very quiet. I can imagine it looks amazing in the Fall. I would stay here again. It was a great weekend.
Everything was perfect and nothing was too much trouble The venue is just perfect for an intimate occasion or a big party. Our wedding was just soo special and we cant thank you all at The French Manor for making our day one we will never forget.
