Welcome to the Red Cardinal Bed & Breakfast

The Red Cardinal Bed & Breakfast is located near the centers of Carlisle and Boiling Springs.

From our B&B, it is an easy drive to Shippensburg, Gettysburg, Lancaster, Hershey and Harrisburg.

We are centrally located to the area's most popular attractions: The Carlisle Collector Car Shows (15 min/7 miles), the Appalachian Trail Center in Boiling Springs (5 min/2.5mi), the Yellow Breeches Creek, Dickinson College (15 min/6 miles) and Penn State Dickinson School of Law.

We would be happy to help plan your visit so that you can enjoy  many of the exciting winter events coming up in the area.

Our beautiful home dates back to the early 1880's. The land and the dwelling were part of a larger tract belonging to the Craighead family, who settled the area in 1742.

As you approach our home, you will see a charming house with an inviting front porch and red shutters. When you step inside, you will be greeted with old-fashioned hospitality.  A few additions over the years, give the house its charming personality.

Original art work and quilts by family and friends cover the walls in every room.

Although the Red Cardinal Bed & Breakfast sits among the farmlands and mountains in South Middleton Township of Cumberland County, it is a short drive from I-81 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

We invite you to come and visit us in this quiet setting where life is not so hurried.  Call us today at 717 245 0823.
