Just returned from a stay at The Red Cardinal Inn & loved it. Beautiful setting, quiet, great food and Joann & Billy were lovely hosts. If by chance we are back to Carlisle we will definitely stay again. We were only booked for one night due to availability (so we stayed at The Carlisle House the 2nd night & wished we’d stayed at The Red Cardinal Inn instead). We stay at BnB’s all the time and this was one of our favorites.
We recently spent a weekend at The Red Cardinal and highly recommend it. This is a lovely, peaceful, comfortable inn that is close to several fly fishing streams, which was one reason for our visit to nearby Boiling Springs. Hosts Joanne and Billy are so friendly and personable, providing helpful information on the area's sights, activities and dining options. Our breakfasts were incredibly delicious with generous portions. We truly felt welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I highly recommend the Red Cardinal. Joanne and Billy are the most amazing and attentive hosts. The breakfast that Joanne serves is incredible and very filling. The B&B is situated between two farms that makes for a quiet peaceful retreat and is only five miles from downtown Carlisle. Joanne and Billy were very helpful and full of information in helping us to navigate the area. They also gave us great suggestions of things to do and places to eat. My husband and I have stayed at many B&B's but a stay at the Red Cardinal is like being welcomed into the family. We will be planning a return trip.
Our stay at the Red Cardinal was wonderful! My boyfriend and I were driving our U-Haul to move from Atlanta to NYC and were looking for a comfortable place to stay halfway. I’m so glad that we found this hidden gem! The house is beautiful and Joanne and Bill are so thoughtful. We had a great time chatting with them and had a delicious breakfast. Definitely recommend staying here, we hope to be back!
My daughter and I stayed here after our first 100+ miles on the AT. Joanne and Bill were incredible hosts. They welcomed us warmly into their home and hearts. We arrived in Boiling Springs pretty worn out. Bill picked us up in town and brought us back to their beautiful home. The accommodations are great - a big, comfortable room with a private bath. Joanne was kind enough to do our laundry. Bill and Joanne provided us with lots of advice and information on the area. We also enjoyed meeting Joanne's mother. In the morning, Joanne made us an incredible country breakfast -- including eggs from their own chickens! And then Bill gave us a ride back to the AT trail head, where we set out well rested and refreshed. Thanks again to our new friends Bill and Joanne.
