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...

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...

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...

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...

Personalized attention from booking through check-out is the norm at Carlisle House. Hosts are friendly and accommodating, rooms are large and comfortable with modern baths and the breakfast quiches are out of this world delicious. Highly recommend the Carlisle House for your next trip to Carlisle, PA.
