Cumberland Valley B&Bs are truly unique! Bed & Breakfasts often promote their unique history, style, location, or amenities. Each B&B in the Cumberland Valley offers at least one truly unique quality that can’t be found at any other lodging in the region. In addition to the personalized services and gracious hospitality of the innkeepers, check out some special aspects of our B&Bs below.
1. Located on 14 acres between Carlisle and Mechanicsburg, 30 Timber Road B&B has walking trails carved out through the wooded property. The fact that all guest rooms have a king-size bed and whirlpool tub only adds to the relaxation and calmness you can experience at this serene and secluded Cumberland Valley B&B!
2. Imagine staying in a B&B that is a historic farmhouse and was once a stop and safe haven on the underground network of homes and farms for slaves escaping their bondage. Guests can see and actually climb down into the hiding place under the floorboards of the historic summer kitchen. Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast also produces honey from its own apiary. Each year the B&B harvests and sells the honey produced from its numerous bee colonies. Guests are welcome to suit up and learn how to tend to the bees. Pheasant Field also offers a unique respite for guests traveling with horses. Its “horse hotel” offers overnight trailer parking, three indoor box stalls, and two paddocks with run-in sheds for guests’ horses as they make long-haul trips around the country.
3. Fallen Tree Farm B&B is located in a 1797 unique stone farmhouse with lovely pastoral views. This B&B is family and pet friendly – with plenty of room for both kids and pets to roam on their 20+ acres! Fallen Tree specializes in rentals for special occasions like weddings and reunions.
4. Another historic home in downtown Carlisle is located just directly across from Penn State Dickinson Law School and is also steps away from Dickinson College. The owner of The Smith Steiner B&B also owns a home decorating shop and you can see her unique design touches throughout the recently renovated home. Guests will enjoy the beautifully detailed and luxurious accommodations at this boutique property.
5. One B&B in the Cumberland Valley is only two miles from the Mid-Atlantic Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Boiling Springs. Red Cardinal B&B offers reasonable rates to hikers and the innkeepers pick up and drop off hikers who are guests. Their location on a back road offers a quiet country experience. The road is excellent for walking and connects with the trails in the town's park system. This very small B&B offers a personal touch to the guest's stay.
6. The Carlisle House B&B is well-known for its delicious and bountiful breakfasts. In addition to their freshly-baked quiches, the Big Green Egg has also become part of their breakfast preparation. The owner occasionally leads a Big Green Egg cooking class at The Kitchen Shoppe. The fact that this B&B is located within a three-minute walk from some of the best restaurants in Carlisle makes a stay here a true culinary delight!
7. Stay in a B&B that is almost an art gallery. At Mooreland Garden Inn B&B, in Carlisle, the murals in the hall and vestibule were painted by local artist Cathy Stone. For inspiration, she observed the oriental accents on the antique furniture and antique Rose Medallion china collection that is displayed in the dining room. Cathy recently added some artistic accents to the original delivery door for the house, where 100 years ago, milk, eggs, cheese, and bread were delivered by horse-drawn carriages. The door will be re-installed soon and the innkeepers look forward to pointing it out to guests as a piece of history for the home. Cathy will soon return to add her decorative touch to the kitchen and back of the inn. We can’t wait to see her creative additions!
