... a Strawberry Margarita. Gabrielle had the same steak as Marie with sweet potato and applesauce, the girls had steak bites, Chey with fries and Mackenzie with applesauce. The Margaritas were HUGE - literally couldn't pick them up. The staff come and sang to anyone who is celebrating a birthday - we heard 5 including Cheyenne. $90 all up.
We took a longish way one buying gas, looking for a mag for Dixie and taking Mackenzie home. Got home about 9.30.
Enjoying the morning with Uncle Dee. After a great breakfast at Bob Evans needed to run off some sausage gravy. Had a blast at the Army Heritage Museum running through the barracks and talking to soldiers. It was amazing. Porter "my favorite thing was talking the soldiers" (he had great questions too) Natalie: " my favorite thing was comparing the barracks; civil war and current time" Brooke:"lookin' at the houses" Now back to the ...
I went to see several Civil War museums around Charlottsville while Betsy was at a meditation retreat near Boston. One of the more dramatic battlegrounds was at New Market in the Shanandoah Valley. This was toward the end of the war and the Confederates were unable to match the numbers of Union soldiers. In dire straits, the general in charge of stopping the Yankees asked the Virginia Military School to send any cadets they ...
That night we made it on time for Despina's wonderful, gigantic, and yummy dinner; good thing we were hungry. After dinner Zach read two of his brilliant stories aloud and swept both Despina and Rob off their feet. Despina finished her book and I am hoping we will have a copy to bring with us to Tland. We slept in the coolest bed ever that night...
The next morning I had an ...
... grain beagle with egg and bacon and terrible coffee. I should have had two oatmeals. The parade of people is astonishing. As we sat, a hundred- hundred and fifty people walked in for coffee and some kind of thing to eat. We're nearly finished, and a man is standing off my left shoulder waiting to sit at our table. Space is precious. I start cleaning up our mess, as you do, apparently here you don't, as he had one of those looks, man are you crazy! I finished cleaning up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Carlisle House Bed & Breakfast
Spotless, Restful, and Kind
My wife and I have logded in many settings, stateside and abroad, and The Carlisle House is among our favorites. Alan and Mary are wonderful hosts who have created a unique atmosphere mixing history, generous hospitality, cleanliness, and attention to detail. Our daughter is a student at Dickinson College, and staying here makes our visits to see her even more delightful. Highly recommended.
A restful environment
Wonderful hosts, tasty and healthy breakfast, great restaurants within short walk, quiet, friendly and spacious.
A Wonderful Experience That Everyone Should Enjoy !!
Mary and Alan have a hit with the Carlisle House, it begins with their greeting you at the door and during your stay they are always there for any question you may have ! The room was perfect with the 4 Poster bed, TV, phone etc. ! Just like a victorian home with modern ambience and charm. The breakfasts are a hit and are tasty and varied with plenty of fresh hot coffee and juices. Downtown Carlisle has plenty of fun walking and stores and restaurants to enjoy, plus it is the perfect base to operate from to travel to Gettysburg, Hershey and other nice locations. Bottom line, if you plan to visit/travel in this area, do not miss staying at the Carlisle House, you will not be disappointed.
My fiance' and I had a wonderful three day excursion to the Carlisle House. The charm and splendor of an old historic house, (with period type furniture, original woodwork and original fireplaces) sucked us right in. Not to mention, the house is updated with modern convieniences like a deliciously refreshing jacuzzi to relax in, a fridge in your room and use of the "kitchen!" Even better than the house itself was the true sincerity of it's owners, Mary and Alan. They are wonderful in making you feel comfortable, not like a customer, but an actual GUEST IN THEIR HOME. Mary's homemade GOURMET breakfasts spoil you every morning! Not to mention what a pleasure to have "coffee talk" with Alan. We have recommended this place to all of our friends and family, and hope you will stay here too. Also, they are very good at suggesting restaurants/attractions in the area. Carlisle was a peaceful getaway for us thanks to the Duxbury's. A+++++++
Sweet place! My wife and I agreed it was one of the best, perhaps the best B&B we'd stayed in without exaggeration. Alan and Mary greeted us and more warm and engaging hosts you will not find. The inviting atmosphere will win you over quickly. And the breakfast, with their specialty quiches was quite a treat. They also know lots about Carlisle and it's history and love to share. Don't miss this stay.
A fantastic place to stay
A wonderful bed and breakfast with every detail attended to. The hosts are wondeful, the rooms are large and well appointed and the breakfast is only topped by the wonderful conversation. We would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Great find in Carlise, PA
Beautiful B&B with wonderful attention to detail. Hosts are welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Rooms are large and very well appointed with all amenities available. Very quiet and relaxing stay. Will return and would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
If I could give the Carlisle House Bed & Breakfast six stars, I would! Everything about my experiences there has been superlative!
A Special Memory
My friend and I stayed at this lovely B&B to celebrate 50 years of friendship. We couldn't have asked for a more special evening...a beautiful room, warm and gracious hosts, a wonderful breakfast. There was nothing that was lacking...every detail was perfect. We feel like we made new friends and hope to visit again very soon. So many special memories...now we have one more thanks to the Carlise House!
Beautiful B and B!
My husband I and have been staying at this B&B since it opened and can truly state that it only improves. The new owners, Mary and Alan, have done a wonderful job and are truly the perfect host and hostesses. Located in the center of town, next to antique shops, boutiques and excellent restaurants. We go for the cars at Carlisle's fairgound, but stay for the jacuzzi and superb breakfast!!!
Can't say enough about it!
