I booked the Ewing room at this lovely bed and breakfast, because my husband wanted to fish Letort Spring Run. From the time we rang the doorbell, until our departure, this stay was nothing short of perfection. Since we had never visited this area before, we were impressed with the number and variety of restaurants to be found, all within... More

A wonderful place to stay. Carlisle is a very interesting historical town to visit and the Carlisle house is the perfect place to stay. Amazing breakfast each morning. The owners are attentive and very friendly. Wonderful bed and breakfast. I hope to return one day!

Naturally-gifted innkeepers, Tim and Carolyn attend to every detail. From arrival, to parking, check-in, orientation, dining recommendations, breakfast and check-out, the guest is never left hanging, nor is the guest hovered-over. The rooms are gorgeous and very clean. The location is perfect for exploring historic Carlisle or Dickinson College.

We discovered the Carlisle Inn in our Select Registry book, and were immediately drawn to it's history,quaintness, size and location. The new owners Carolyn and Tim do a fantastic job of making you feel welcome and making sure you have everything you need for your stay. We stayed 2 nights in Jessie's room which was on the second floor. It... More

We made last minute plans for a stay at the Carlisle House while touring nearby Dickinson College. Even with short notice, the hospitality of the new owners was exceptional. Our room was spacious (huge!) and very, very clean. Everything we could have needed was available in the room. And those sheets!!! We were given advice on where to go for... More

For to many years I slept at hotels on the strip between 81 and the Turnpike (76). Just 2 miles from the turnpike entrance is the town of Carlisle. Centrally located in town is the Carlisle House Bed-and-Breakfast. Tim and Carolyn are wonderful hosts. Parking in the back is convenient. The rooms are not excessively antiqued but are very charming.... More

It would be her first time away from home and we stayed at the Carlisle House the night before we had to take her to the college. It was an trip of mixed emotions for both parents and daughter as...

A great location, being just 3 miles from I-76, the PA Turnpike. We enjoyed the historic aspects of the 1800s building. It was a bit noisy on the 1st floor, at night. Late arrivals caused lots of squeaky floor sounds above us. We felt the price was a bit too high. However, breakfast was outstanding. The homemade quiche especially good.... More

The Carlisle House B&B was a fantastic experience, not only because of the historic setting, but in great part due to the Innkeepers, especially Mary, a former Nurse in Vietnam. My wife and I had the opportunity to visit on Veterans Day, as I had a meeting the next day at the U.S. Army War College (USAWC). By phone, I... More
