Welcome to the Red Cardinal Bed & Breakfast
We invite you to come and visit us in this quiet setting where life is not so hurried.
The Red Cardinal B&B is located near the area's most popular attractions:
Downtown Carlisle, Dickinson College and Penn State Dickinson School of Law (6 miles/10 minutes),
The Carlisle Collector Car Shows (7 miles/14 minutes), the Appalachian Trail, and the Yellow Breeches Creek.
Our Bed and Breakfast is located on a quiet country road, and we provide off-street parking for your car or motorcycle.
From our B&B, It is an easy drive to Shippensburg, Gettysburg, Lancaster, Hershey and Harrisburg.
The Red Cardinal is about 25 miles from Gettysburg (about a 30 minute scenic ride). It is a perfect place to stay if you are planning on being part of Gettysburg's 150th Civil War Celebration.
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.
"Nooks and crannies" add to the charm of the house. A few additions over the years, give the house its personality.
Original art work by family and friends covers the walls in every room.
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.
