We have been staying here for 15+ years and re fer to it as home when we're in the Carlisle area. The innkeepers (who have become friends) have always made evryone welcome. If you seek Civil War information look no further. Breakfast is to die for, what more could you want?

An interesting place that typifies the 'mixed bag' aspect of staying at bed and breakfast establishments. The upside: Jacob's Resting Place is a beautiful old historic building with comfortable rooms, reasonable rates, a nice pool, and a sumptious if somewhat over-large gourmet breakfast.
