Joanne and Billy were so warm and welcoming upon our arrival with home cooked goodies awaiting us. Billy took great pride and time to introduce us to their lovely home which was very comfortable. The sunrise breakfast on the patio was a marvelous way to begin our day! Florence ( Joanne's mother ) and their dog Molly were the icing... More

Look no further if visiting Carlisle or surrounding areas. Joanne,Bill, Florence and Molly treat you like family, they are amazing hosts. Very knowledgable about the areas and cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Beautiful spotless room and a gourmet breakfast, what more could you want. Cannot recommend this spot highly enough.

Bill and Joanne were incredible hosts--warm, informative and extremely attentive. We were visiting our daughter who is studying at a summer ballet program in nearby Carlisle and were fortunate to find the Red Cardinal on the internet. The setting next to a large farm was picturesque and very tranquil. We felt truly relaxed. Our room upstairs was very comfortable and... More

Joanne and Bill provide a great place to "be a local". They let you into their home and treat you like you're a member of their family, and in their case, that's a great thing. The breakfasts I enjoyed there on their back patio overlooking their neighbor's corn field were absolutely wonderful! Even when I let them know I didn't... More

Located down a country lane, but near to Carlisle and Boiling Springs (which are both well worth a visit) this is an exceptional B & B. The accommodation is well-planned, spotlessly clean and a pleasure to be in. The breakfasts are so good with Joanne using produce from the garden and the local markets and it was such a pleasure...

Bill and Joanne are such great hosts, from the warm welcome when we arrived to the wonderful breakfast and casual conversation about area attractions. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Looking forward to another chance to visit and hope to be able to stay longer.

Joanne and Bill are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The place itself is set in a wonderful location on a country road just a few minutes outside Carlisle. You'll see the red cardinal and hummingbird during breakfast in the backyard if you're lucky... Frank/ May 2012

We had a great stay here. We were very busy with family events so didn't get to spend a lot of time relaxing at the B&B but what we did was wonderful.
