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.

Fantastic stay at the Carlisle House. Beautiful room, gorgeous quiche and Alan and Mary make you feel right at home. Loads of great places to visit all within a stones throw. Thanks guys for looking after us, we've had the best time. Oh and ps, pop into Molly Pitchers Brewery around the corner for a flight, you wont be disappointed!

This B&B experience in Carlisle was among the best we have ever enjoyed. The co-hosts, Mary and Alan, were thoroughly welcoming, attentive to details, and knowledgeable about Carlisle's restaurants, cultural venues, institutions and history. On the 2015 Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, there were many guests who were 'delivering' students back to Dickinson for the semester, and the hosts were... More

Mary and Alan were wonderful hosts for our short stay at their well-appointed B&B. I was particularly impressed with their attention to detail in all areas. I enjoyed the sitting room where I could work early in the morning while my daughter continued sleeping. Alan went above and beyond by helping to clear the snow off my car while we... More

Accommodations and breakfast were comfortable and lovely. Mary and Alan were gracious and conscientious about food restrictions in our party (GF, some food allergies), which made the experience much more pleasant. The location of the inn is convenient to Dickinson and the little downtown area. We found their restaurant recommendations not quite in line with what we were looking for,... More

We were completely satisfied, even very pleased, with the service, the food, the room accommodations, the personal attention provided by Alan and Mary and recommendations that they made for our visit. If we ever return to the area we will plan to stay at the Carlisle House again. We are frequent travelers but this was our first experience at a... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Carlisle House and enjoyed every moment! The house was beautiful, the food was delicious, and Mary was a most gracious and accommodating hostess. It is everything we could hope for in a B&B and more. Thank you!

Thanks Amy. We always look forward to gifting our veterans with a complimentary night for the annual B&Bs for Vets celebration. We are so pleased that you and John could come and celebrate on Veterans Day. Thank you for your service! More

The gorgeous Ewing Room was super romantic, and larger than the pics can convey. It was an excellent value. Mary and Alan were the most gracious hosts ~ warm and friendly people who seem to enjoy and are quite natural at their calling. A nice touch was that they have menus on hand from area restaurants, and on each one... More
