Joanne and Bill provide a great place to "be a local". They let you into their home and treat you like you're a member of their family, and in their case, that's a great thing. The breakfasts I enjoyed there on their back patio overlooking their neighbor's corn field were absolutely wonderful! Even when I let them know I didn't... More

Located down a country lane, but near to Carlisle and Boiling Springs (which are both well worth a visit) this is an exceptional B & B. The accommodation is well-planned, spotlessly clean and a pleasure to be in. The breakfasts are so good with Joanne using produce from the garden and the local markets and it was such a pleasure...

Bill and Joanne are such great hosts, from the warm welcome when we arrived to the wonderful breakfast and casual conversation about area attractions. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Looking forward to another chance to visit and hope to be able to stay longer.

Joanne and Bill are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The place itself is set in a wonderful location on a country road just a few minutes outside Carlisle. You'll see the red cardinal and hummingbird during breakfast in the backyard if you're lucky... Frank/ May 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Joanne and Bill are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The breakfast was terrific. And the B&B is very convenient to Carlisle and Dickinson College,

We had a great stay here. We were very busy with family events so didn't get to spend a lot of time relaxing at the B&B but what we did was wonderful. The location is country but close to Camp Hill and Harrisburg which was perfect for us! The breakfasts were delicious and very filling! Joanne uses as much from... More

First time in a B&B, first time in PA. We didn't really know what we needed to look for, but something guided us to the right place. It was "Incredible!" Bill was out on his motorcycle when we arrived, so Molly (Border Collie) greeted us warmly. Joanne and Bill have wonderful gift, just for the taking. As we sat on... More

They are knowlegable about the area and go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your stay. We stayed in the Bluebird room which was upstairs. The view was nice, the bed was very confortable and... More

We recently stayed at the Red Cardinal Bed & Breakfast while attending a car show in Carlisle. We chose the Red Cardinal based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor, and were not disappointed! Bill and Joanne (and their dog, Molly) were very welcoming and we felt right at home. Our room was large, comfortable, and very clean. Breakfast was... More
