My daughter and I stayed here in August while she danced at CPYB. I am so glad we chose to stay here rather than a hotel! Tim and Carolyn make you feel like right at home as soon as they open the door! We stayed in a room in the front of the home which can be a little noisy...

Thank you so much Jennifer B! It is great to hear from you. What a wonderful time we had with you and your daughter. We are so glad you enjoyed the Rose Room while she was here learning at CPYB. Her enthusiasm and smile was contagious. We would love to see you again on your next visit. Take care.

My husband and I spent a Saturday night at the Carlisle House B&B as a stop en route to our destination south of Carlisle. Tim and Carolyn were so inviting and easy to talk with; they offered great suggestions for dinner and beer tasting options. Very reasonably priced for the great accommodations and private parking; easy to get into and...

My daughter and I stayed in Molly's Garden room on the 3rd floor. The house is gorgeous, the room was wonderfully comfortable, and breakfast was perfect! The location is great for walking to nearby restaurants or Dickinson College. I have already recommended this B&B to friends, and hope to go back again!

While on a road trip, we thought we'd perhaps spend the night in Carlisle as on the route home to NYC and a good half way stop so we called earlier in the day to just check out if they were open and had room. We had to call 3 numbers before someone picked up. When we arrived (still without...

Dear NPWNewYork, We are very sorry that you had a less than wonderful experience at our bed and breakfast. It does take us a minute to get to the front door since the Inn is large and this being our home, also, UPS had tried to deliver a package about an hour earlier, while we were at an appt., and...

We had a fantastic stay at the Carlisle House. The host were friendly and inviting. Our rooms were supplied with everything we needed. The breakfast was amazing. Especially the quiche. Quite inviting.

It was great to have you and your group of friends come through our area as hikers on the Appalachian Trail. We always love to hear about the experiences that each group has while on the trail. We can't wait to see you guys again. Keep hiking!

Caroline and Tim are first rate inn keepers, providing lovely rooms and sumptuous breakfasts. They are delightful people! Carlisle is a fun, active town with many attractions, chief among them Dickinson College. Having visited Gettysburg numerous times, my next battlefield junket will find me headquartered at the Carlisle House. An enjoyable, memorable visit awaits you.

Our one-night stay at the Carlisle House B&B met or exceeded every expectation. For us, we wanted a nice location to explore historic Carlisle on-foot, catch a nice dinner, and enjoy staying in a historic property. The owners Tim and Carolyn were very welcoming and the quiche was probably the best I've ever had. We stayed in the Molly's Garden...

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed the quiche! I always tell our guests that every quiche that Tim makes is better than the last. Molly's Garden Room is a popular room; we just had a writer stay there and also commented on how quiet it was. We look forward to your next visit...

I was pleasantly (and instantaneously) surprised by the graceful Southern hospitality I encountered during an impromptu business overnight stay in Carlisle, PA. As a last minute necessity (after my reservations fell through at a different local B&B), Tim and Carolyn Carlisle welcomed me into their Carlisle Home - as if we knew one another for a lifetime. I will definitely...
