To say this is the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at is an understatement. This is my second stay here within the last year. The room is very comfortable and spacious. The breakfast is amazing. I stayed for 4 days and had something new and unique each day. Fresh cookies and hot tea in the evening helped bring my long days to a close. The best part of this stay are the hosts. They treat you like family and legitimately care about you. I cannot wait for my next trip to visit. I might just have to create a reason to return!
Here for a 2 night stay while here visiting the 2022 National Mopar car show. BiLL and Joanne are wonderful hosts...comfy ,clean room, porch to sit on, enjoyed the beauty of her flowers. Yummy, homemade breakfasts with items from her garden or local farmers. Attention to detail is awesome. Highly recommend!! Hope to be back in future. Cindy and Jay
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.
My wife and I stayed here this past Saturday. We were in the area for a family reunion in nearby Gardners, PA. The owners, Billy and Joanne, were very accommodating: We weren't sure when we would be returning that night from the reunion; their response was "no problem Joanne will wait up until you get in". We mentioned that we normally awake early in the AM and asked if we could get some coffee at that early hour; their response, "no worries, Billy is up early as well and will have coffee ready". This is the only B & B that we have stayed at, where, I couldn't finish breakfast; because, there was so much delicious food to eat. Don't be mislead by the Carlisle address (which is a high density suburb in the greater Harrisburg area); this B & B location is in the nearby beautiful countryside, a few miles outside of town. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience.…
You will be hard pressed to find better accommodations and hospitality anywhere. Joanne and Billy are two of the nicest and funniest people you’ll ever meet. Joanne’s amazing breakfast is second to none, and Billy and Joanne are so personable, we felt so comfortable and at ease. We also had the immense pleasure of meeting Florence, Joanne’s 100 year old mother, she is a truly amazing person. The Red Cardinal is nestled in the farmland and natural beauty of the Pennsylvania countryside and is absolutely breathtaking. As I promised Billy and Joanne, we will be back without question. Our stay with Billy and Joanne was one of the most memorable vacations we’ve ever had, Jenn and I thank you both from the bottom of our hearts. We will be back to get Billy in more trouble 😁
After nine cold days on the Appalachian Trail, my wife and I were desperate for a home-cooked meal, hot shower, and comfy bed—all of which we got in spades at the Red Cardinal B&B. Our stay began with Bill picking us up at the ATC office in Boiling Springs and bringing us back to the adorable home he shares with his wife, Joanne, his mother-in-law, Florence, and their dog, Molly. Upon our arrival we chatted with Bill, Joanne, and Florence for a bit, gave Molly some much-deserved attention, and enjoyed some quiet on a bench across the street as the sun set, finally retreating to our bedroom for a shower and a good night's sleep. The next morning we woke to a delicious pancake and eggs breakfast with juice, fruit & yogurt, and the most delicious blueberry pound cake we've ever had—Joanne even gave us some to take with us, which was a welcome treat seven miles into our hike that day. While we ate, my wife noticed a Disney CD sitting near the stereo in the dining room and mentioned how much she enjoyed Disney music. Well, it turns out Bill may be an even bigger fan than she is, and the two of them chatted about their favorite Disney movies as "Hakuna Matata" played in the background. Before we left, they insisted on snapping a picture of us in our hiking gear to remember us by, a copy of which we got in the mail (along with a thoughtful note) a week or two later. We greatly look forward to our next stay at the Red Cardinal B&B, where Bill, Joanne, Florence, and Molly truly treat you just like family.…
