Reviewed 6 January 2005

Our third time to stay at the Carlisle House and it was great as usual. Janice and crew could not be more friendly and accomodating. We tried room #20 this time. It is on the second floor with large four poster bed and fireplace. Great room that makes you feel like you have stepped back in time but with the modern goodies like triple sheets, comfy bed linens tv and a/c. The breakfast porch looks out over the garden where you can eat outside in the warmer months. Best in town location for us, close to beaches and ferry.

Reviewed 30 August 2004

We stayed at the Carlisle House this past weekend - definitely our first and last stay. The staff was extremely rude (and even tried to charge us for an extra night), the room we stayed in was not the one we had reserved on the phone (nor is it listed on their website), and the place was pretty run down (e.g. you cannot use a hair dryer and have the air conditioner on at the same time). There was nothing positive about this b&b, except perhaps the location - but there are many other wonderful places to stay in the area.
