My dad and I had such a lovely time staying at the Carlisle House. The rooms were beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was great (excellent quiche) and it really felt like you were dining in your own home. Mary and Alan were so accommodating. Thank you for a great weekend!

Mary & Alan are the quintessential hosts in the most charming old home filled with Civil War memorabilia. Terrific amenities & extras. Breakfasts are above & beyond with the yummiest quiches ever, which we've re-produced from their web-site…thank you!

This was a repeat trip for my family to meet and spend a weekend together. Once again we felt very welcome and comfortable in our lovely rooms. Breakfast is such a treat with great food and pleasant chats with guests and hosts. Perfect B&B experience!

This is a historic (1826) town home in what seems to be authentic condition with just about every modern comfort and great attention to detail. The breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed meeting the other guests. Also, Alan and Mary are fabulous in-keepers with a knack for making guests feel comfortable.

My daughter and I were in Carlisle to tour Dickinson and we rather hope she enrolls there so we can stay at Carlisle House again. Beautifully furnished and quiet, with an historic ambience, it was perfect for our stay. Both the college and a variety of tantalizing restaurants are within close walking distance. We enjoyed meeting the other guests at... More

I found this jewel by chance and could not have been happier if I had picked it out of a guide. The accommodations, the host, location and breakfast all great. I not only recommend the Carlisle House, I recommend the city. I will be back, what a great experience!

Wonderful place to spend a night when visiting Dickinson College since it's within walking distance. It's also great to have restaurants and stores nearby. Mary was super friendly, and helped make the stay more personable. The room was great. I hope to return someday, but the next time, it should be with a boyfriend, not my two teenagers. The only...

I was in Carlisle for just two nights to drop my daughter off at CPYB. My only regret is that I didn't plan to stay longer! The Carlisle House was clean, nicely decorated and the bathroom was wonderful. The bed was so comfortable and the room was very cosy. Alan and Mary shared information on the history of Carlisle and... More

Quite objectively speaking, this is the single best B&B we've ever experienced. The rooms were outstanding; the bathrooms were perfect. Breakfast was gourmet quality. The hosts were more generous than one could possibly imagine, especially for the very reasonable cost. The building and town for that matter is very historic. We will definitely return.
