I recently stayed at the Carlisle House with my daughter during a college visit road trip. The BB was charming and the hosts were fabulous. This was a wonderful find and I would definitely stay at The Carlisle House next time I am in the area.

I was visiting for genealogy research at Cumberland County Historical Society Library. Carlisle House was convenient to so many things and I could walk to the Library. Comfortable room and delicious breakfast. Mary went the extra mile to help me in my research. And, if you wish, you can engage in political banter with Alan! Just be prepared to look... More

My daughter and I were in Carlisle for a college tour and we felt like we were at home at the Inn. We were tucked in and cozy in our beautiful rooms and enjoyed a delicious breakfast as well. Parking was convenient also; can't wait to visit again!

Carlisle House is very close to Dickinson College. Mary and Alan were great host and hostess. The breakfast was amazing. I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed some of the restaurants in Carlisle.

My daughter and I stayed in the "Molly's Garden" room on the 3rd floor while we paid a visit to nearby Dickinson College. Mary and Alan greeted us before we even reached the front door and were wonderful hosts. They were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area and were genuinely concerned with our comfort. The room was spacious, clean... More

Three of us stayed here in the Hayes Room. The suite has two bedrooms, two televisions, two separate heating/cooling units. It is located on the top floor. This was our second stay at the B&B and we were quite happy. We had quiche and muffins for breakfast. There were also some cereal choices for those who prefer. Free parking is... More

I stayed here while attending a conference in Carlisle. I had a lovely, spacious suite, the owners were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. Carlisle is a quaint little college town and Carlisle House added to the charm. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful experience at the Carlisle House! Mary and Alan were wonderful hosts. Our room was nice and we loved the oversized jacuzzi tub. They offered a celebration package for Valentine's weekend which included a dozen beautiful roses, a dozen chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champagne (we got prosecco on request) and two champagne flutes! They gave... More

I have stayed at the Carlisle House several times over the past 8 years and have always experienced the best of beauty, hospitality, food and company. I have been there with teenagers, with friends, with family and most recently with an adult daughter for mother-daughter weekend. Mary and Alan are the consummate hosts. No wonder this charming B&B enjoys national... More

This was the perfect Valentine's getaway. The room was spic and span, beautifully preserved with 19th Century antiques...and enhanced with modern amenities like a spacious jacuzzi! Mary and Alan were great hosts, and amazing chefs at that. You can tell they both love what they do. Downtown and close to great restaurants. Would highly recommend.
