      Historical Traveler Reviews Carlisle House Bed & Breakfast

      Spotless, Restful, and Kind

      from

      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

      from

      Wonderful hosts, tasty and healthy breakfast, great restaurants within short walk, quiet, friendly and spacious.

      A Wonderful Experience That Everyone Should Enjoy !!

      from

      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.

      Stay Here!

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Unending Charm and Quality

      from

      If I could give the Carlisle House Bed & Breakfast six stars, I would! Everything about my experiences there has been superlative!

      While my daughter was a student at the Central Pennsyvlania Youth Ballet, I had many occasions to make the Carlisle House B & B my home for special weekend visits. In addition, the Carlisle House actually became "home" for my daughter for her final six weeks with the company, when we moved her there for a "long-term stay." It was a very special and memorable experience for our whole family (seven of us!) to celebrate her high school graduation at the Carlisle House! Using the large common area, we had all the personal touches of home for a family event.

      You can't speak of the Carlisle House without mentioning the proprietors and hosts, Mary and Alan. They absolutely love what they do!! Each guest and his or her story is important to them. In addition, they possess a wealth of knowledge on the stories and families from historic Carlisle -- Mary is a Carlisle native and her family still lives there. Meanwhile, Alan can steer you to the best places for food and drink in the area. But don't miss the breakfast buffet at the Carlisle House, featuring Mary's delectable quiches -- it's wonderful!

      Just to give an example of the special treatment one receives at this Bed and Breakfast, let me relate a story about my father. At my urging, he visited Carlisle and stayed at the Carlisle House. When he asked Alan where he could obtain a copy of the New York Times the following morning, he woke up to find that Alan had personally delivered a copy of the Times outside his bedroom door. Several months later, my Dad returned to the Carlisle House. He was astounded to find the New York Times waiting for him without even asking for it -- it's those little personal touches that really make a guest feel special -- Mary and Alan have the personal touch perfected and it shows!!

      So, if you are looking for a special experience, don't miss the Carlisle House Bed and Breakfast, located in the heart of historic Carlisle. You can even select your own beautifully decorated room from their website. My daughter is not living in Carlisle anymore, but we will return because this Bed and Breakfast is one experience that I plan on repeating!!

      A Special Memory

      from

      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!

      from

      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!

      We had the opportunity and time to make a stop into Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as we are beginning our journey up north before we begin heading back to Colorado.


      We had one full day in Gettysburg. We were armed with apps that gave information on the battle and memorials/statues in Gettysburg and even stopped by the visitors center to get a paper map.

We were hoping to walk around the National Mall a little bit that afternoon so that the next day we could focus on all the museums. Unfortunately we got to D.C just as rush hour traffic was starting and ended up stuck in the worst deadlock for over an hour. Chris ...

      ... term "soccer moms" was coined. But here I see plenty of fathers and grandparents as well. Fathers who prefer to be a bit more active serve as coaches, referees and linesmen.

      I guess if I had seen this 10 years ago, I probably would have thought "big deal" But now, after seeing so much of the world, it strikes me how rare it is to see parents spending a Saturday cheering their kids as they kick a ball around.

      In much of the world, being a "good parent" means making ...
