B & B accommodations only offered at the Frederick Stegmaier Mansion.

5-circles“Stunning place of magical splendor! Romantic getaway.

I can say that this was the most enjoyable hotel or B&B stay we’ve ever had in our decades of world and domestic travel because of the sheer beauty and sense of luxury. Best of all, we didn’t find it too expensive…”

Estelle, of Providence, RI reviews 5-star-review

“I came all the way from Providence Rhode Island just to spend a vacation in the mansion. It was the most memorable experience of my life.”

5-circles“Wonderful experience!

My husband and I enjoy staying in unique bed and breakfasts in the U.S. and abroad and this one ranks among the best of the best. Meticulously restored, yet extremely welcoming and homey, we felt like we became part of the Stegmaier family from the moment we crossed the threshold…”


Lorna & David review 5-star-review

“Stepping into the Frederick Stegmaier mansion is like having a special pass into a little known, early American Smithsonian exhibit where the red velvet ropes have been taken away and one is free to explore an intensely detailed voyage into another era. Our host was informative and gracious, the room was almost beyond words…”

5-circles“Amazing. Simply Amazing.

My husband and I have stayed in many historic hotels and inns, often furnished with antique and period furniture, but nothing, simply nothing, comes close to the Stegmaier Mansion…”

Bridal Reviews

Both the Frederick & Mary Stegmaier Mansions offer stunning wedding & baby shower facilities, with packages & menus that are highly customizable – NOW able to accommodate seating for large parties!

5-circles“…a Once in a Lifetime Experience That you Will Want to Repeat!”

Earlier this year we took a tour of the Mansion, looking for a suitable place to hold our wedding and reception in October. It did not take long for us to decide that this was exactly where we wanted to hold our wedding. This is a place that is actually ten times + better than the website pictures. Every detail is attended to, the entire mansion is beautiful and Joe immediately makes you feel right at home and comfortable. Having our wedding here was perfect for us… This is Wilkes-Barre, PA’s best accommodations, I have never experienced better anywhere and can say with certainty you will not either.”

The mansion made planning a wedding for almost 70 people, in just 3 months, easy and stress-free. Staff is helpful and kind. I honestly cannot speak highly enough about the Stegmaier.”
