While on a road trip, we thought we'd perhaps spend the night in Carlisle as on the route home to NYC and a good half way stop so we called earlier in the day to just check out if they were open and had room. We had to call 3 numbers before someone picked up. When we arrived (still without...

Dear NPWNewYork, We are very sorry that you had a less than wonderful experience at our bed and breakfast. It does take us a minute to get to the front door since the Inn is large and this being our home, also, UPS had tried to deliver a package about an hour earlier, while we were at an appt., and...

We had a fantastic stay at the Carlisle House. The host were friendly and inviting. Our rooms were supplied with everything we needed. The breakfast was amazing. Especially the quiche. Quite inviting.

It was great to have you and your group of friends come through our area as hikers on the Appalachian Trail. We always love to hear about the experiences that each group has while on the trail. We can't wait to see you guys again. Keep hiking!

Our one-night stay at the Carlisle House B&B met or exceeded every expectation. For us, we wanted a nice location to explore historic Carlisle on-foot, catch a nice dinner, and enjoy staying in a historic property. The owners Tim and Carolyn were very welcoming and the quiche was probably the best I've ever had. We stayed in the Molly's Garden...

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed the quiche! I always tell our guests that every quiche that Tim makes is better than the last. Molly's Garden Room is a popular room; we just had a writer stay there and also commented on how quiet it was. We look forward to your next visit...

I was pleasantly (and instantaneously) surprised by the graceful Southern hospitality I encountered during an impromptu business overnight stay in Carlisle, PA. As a last minute necessity (after my reservations fell through at a different local B&B), Tim and Carolyn Carlisle welcomed me into their Carlisle Home - as if we knew one another for a lifetime. I will definitely...

My husband and I were drawn to Carlisle for the Spring car auction and were lucky enough to get a room at the Carlisle House. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute!

The Carlisle House was a great stop for us on a college tour. It's on one of the main streets in Carlisle, two buildings that were combined over time by the prior owner. It's very conveniently located close to Dickenson, many shops and restaurants. Current owners Tim and Carolyn were relaxed, gracious, friendly and very helpful. Our room was very...

My boyfriend and I stopped at the Carlisle House on our way to Harrisburg from Pittsburgh for an event. It was the perfect location, close to Harrisburg but small, quaint and relaxing. Our room came with a hot tub and a very comfortable bed. We ended up going to dinner at the Belgian restaurant three blocks away and enjoyed the...
