Picked this one as everything was booked for New Years Eve First Nite Activities. What a great choice! It was so much nicer than staying at a hotel! Centered right with all the activities! Well maintained historic Inn with much history. New owners had some fascinating and entertaining stories of their journey to this new venture for them. Needless to... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Carlisle House several times the past few years. We were very pleased to enjoy another visit and especially enjoyed the new owners, Tim and Carolyn. They've continued the tradition of hosting a fine facility and making excellent dining recommendations.

Initially, I was going to say that staying at the Carlisle House B&B was like being at home, but that would not have been truthful. It was BETTER than home! Not only are the rooms exquisite, but Tim and Carolyn are extremely hospitable. Whenever we're in the area, there is no doubt on where we will stay.

We were in Carlisle PA for an antique show and stayed at the Carlisle house. The room was great and the breakfast was superb. I highly recommend this B&B and will be staying there the next time I'm in Carlisle.

Jim T & Mary B. Florida. We have stayed at the Carlisle House many times over the last 3 years. The rooms are furnished with a comfortable blend of period pieces and modern appliances. The hosts are wonderful and serve an outstanding breakfast each morning. We were worried when the Inn changed hands last year but Tim and Carolyn turned... More

This B & B was very beautifully decorated, immaculately clean & the beds were so comfortable. The owners Tim and Carolyn were very welcoming, kind and professional. There are also good restaurants and fun shops within walking distance.

Recently my daughter and I interviewed at Dickinson College and stayed at the charming Carlisle House, recommended to us by the Carlisle Chamber of Commerce. The accommodations were most comfortable and we can't say enough good about it. First of all, breakfast was fantastic and it put my daughter at ease to have a lovely breakfast and conversation before going... More

Thank for your glowing review. We never tire of our "research" in finding the best restaurants to recommend and telling our guests about them, although, it gets difficult, at times, because there are so many great ones here, and within walking distance. We are pleased that we could settle the nerves for your daughter before the interview and hope all... More

We stayed at the Carlisle House many, many times with the previous innkeepers, as we made bi-weekly visits to my aging mother-in-law. This was our first time back since Carolyn and Tim purchased the property. It was our home away from home and still is. It's every bit as great as it always has been, and the new innkeepers are...

We enjoyed staying here over Valentines weekend last year. We had a nice romantic night. The tubs are huge! We stayed on the bottom floor. He loved the quiche they served for breakfast. There are new owners now from what I understand but reading the reviews it looks like the transition has gone smoothly. We would visit here again!

We stayed at Carlisle House this past Christmas Eve. We were seeking a bit of coziness and charm at Christmas, and we definitely found both! Carolyn greeted us warmly on our arrival. We stayed in "Jessie's Room," which was lovely and quiet. When had a change of plans meant we would miss breakfast, Carolyn graciously offered to serve us early... More
