I was attending a meeting and visiting my college student at Dickinson College and this B&B is within walking distance of campus. But more than that this a lovely place just to be, situated in the historic district of Carlisle. The streets are great to stroll around, rain or shine; also great place for taking photographs, handy to restaurants, and... More

I have stayed at Carlisle B&B once a year since 2004, when Mary and Alan first took over. I generally go to Carlisle for business, but Carlisle B&B is such a delightful place to stay that it becomes a mini-vacation. It is the ideal combination of old fashioned luxury and peacefulness with the conveniences of the 21st Century. Beautifully decorated... More

The Inn was beautiful and comfortable in every way. Our hostess, Mary was so genuine in her concern that we had everything we needed. Unfortunately we had to miss the breakfast, due to a Dickinson conflict, but you can be sure we would not be so foolish again as to skip a meal in the beautiful dining room. We will... More

The innkeepers pay attention to detail. The rooms are lovely and very clean. There are rooms for all occasions, from romantic getaway to family vacation. The breakfast quiche is to die for! Whether you are coming to Carlisle for vacation or for business, make sure you take time to check out the town. It is full of life, culture and... More

Traveling with my daughter to visit family, we found the Carlisle House to be a "picture perfect" bed & breakfast. The rooms are warm, charming and well-appointed. The location is ideal for wandering the downtown shops and restaurants and its proximity to Dickinson College. The innkeepers were wonderful and enthusiastic resources for local history. Mary's quiche is amazing!

I just returned from a stay at The Carlisle House B&B. From the moment Mary welcomed us at the door, I knew we were in the right place. She and Alan are, without a doubt, the most welcoming hosts. The B&B is beautiful as a property and well appointed throughout. The rooms are large and so comfortable. I had the... More

This is a wonderful place to stay! We love being close to Dickinson College when visiting our son. The Carlisle House just seems to anticipate our needs and makes an effort to make sure everything goes smoothly - from dinner reservations, to breakfast, to internet connections available in our rooms, to helping us have family time - it all was...

Mary is so nice, everything possible was thought of to make our stay comfortable. Not only was the Carlisle House pleasant and restful there were many unadvertised extras. You should stay there to check them out. Dickinson is a short walk from here. Mary is very knowledgeable about Dickinson and is a great ambassador for the college. In fact, they... More

Rooms are very comfortable. As a business traveler really appreciate the in-room refrigerator stocked with juice, soda, and water. Good proximity to major highways and good restaurants for entertaining. Owners are very friendly. Breakfast is delicious. Overall a wonderful change of pace from the chain hotels if you are a frequent traveler.
