Fallen Tree Farm Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 6 Carlisle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Husband and I spent a Sunday night recently and were quite pleased. It was lovely and our room absolutely one of the best we have stayed at over the past 20 years - we really loved it. Kim was friendly and went out of her way to make us feel at home - breakfast was delicious and Kim was pleasant in her conversation regarding the area. Kim made a fire pit for us and lit torches outside all ready upon our return from dinner - so very romantic. A few cons though - when we returned from dinner we stopped in to see the horses/ponies and they were all eating at 8:30 p.m. - their stalls did not look like they had been cleaned out in a few days - there wasn't any fresh soft bedding for them either - it saddened me seeing it all. The two dogs I had thought were inside dogs, they looked like they live outside - not brushed and Sullivan had a cut on his paw - again I was saddened to see them and gave them big hugs as much as I could. When we first arrived and drove onto the property we passed an above ground swimming pool that was filled with dark green slimy water - a tarp could be put across this - it was unsightly. With a tarp over the pool or a good cleaning, a freshened stall area and brushing the dogs here and there everything else would put this B&B at the top - it truly is wonderful inside the building and the other area of the grounds - just don't go into the stalls. We would go back - without a doubt but next time would like some apples to give to the horses - weren't offered any this trip. The prices are reasonable - the hosts are friendly - the inside of the B&B delightful - Bed very comfortable - take care of the animals a bit more or hire a college kid to come over and help out and this B&B would be off the chart!

Room Tip: The first floor library room is delightful - bed comfortable - large wall television - a true living...

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and thanks for highlighting some of the things that make the farm special. I'm glad you enjoyed meeting our horses, albeit late at night with flashlights after you returned from dinner! I can assure you their stalls are cleaned daily- they had already been in them several hours as you had specifically requested to meet them so we brought them in early to accomodate your request. Our dogs are farm dogs- we are a farm. They greatly enjoy the ability to traverse our 20 acres and often bring a "piece of the farm" back inside with them. They are extremely loved but I'm sure they appreciated that extra hug you shared with them.

Highly recommend as an alternative to the box hotels in downtown and surrounding area. Very convenient to Dickinson and downtown Carlisle. Fresh air - lovely grounds - beautiful horses on the property. Excellent breakfast and service.

This B *B is set back from the road, best to approach in daylight. The house and grounds are charming with lots of special touches. Our room, Grant Room, was very comfortable. A king and a trundle meant our college student could stay with us as well. The place is quiet and relaxing, away from all the noise and traffic. Hostess is very welcoming and provides information about the area. Will stay here again when visiting Dickinson, less than 10 min. To the college.

I cannot take much pleasure in criticizing a family owned and operated B&B but having chosen this one based on rave reviews on TA, I am feeling the necessity of saying we did not find it to be exceptional in any way. The online photos made it look far more elegant than it turned out to be. There was paint peeling off the wall in the bathroom and a shower arrangement in an old claw foot tub which was very difficult to get in and out of. The bed squeaked every time we moved In it and the two TV's in the suite had such small monitor sized screens that it probably would have been better not to offer them at all. In the end, we left feeling TA had given us a false impression of quality.

Kim hosted a flawless outdoor wedding for our daughter and son-in-law on a perfect October day. The whole family stayed in the B and B, and everything from breakfast to the garden to coordinating with the caterer was done with care and professionalism. I can't say enough good things about how beautiful and well run Fall Tree Farm B and B is!

Pull off the highway and wind your way through a wooded drive to a peaceful homestead. This classic farmhouse is beautifully appointed to take you back in time. We stayed in the Graham Retreat room and had a cozy evening by the fire. Featherbed mattress toppers welcome you to a wonderful night's sleep. Kim is a consumate host and a great cook. Our breakfast of grilled grapefruit, goat cheese and sun dried tomato tart, bacon, corn muffins, and blueberry tart desert was delicious. You'll love this place. collapse

Staying at Fallen Tree Farm was one of the most pleasant hotel/travel experiences of my life. We rented the entire inn for my husband's family to visit, and it couldn't have been a better experience.

The rooms are great: charming, historical, idiosyncratic, incredibly comfortable--and all without exploding with doilies or frills. Each room has been renovated over the past few years by someone with a great eye and a great deal of taste. We stayed in the Botanical Library, which was cozy and romantic without being at all fussy. I loved how flexible the space was: the Grey Mare's Quarters slept four tall men easily, while we used Coyle's Hideaway as a private spot for a young married couple. My in-laws spent the night in Graham's Retreat, which had a beautiful porch and a fantastic fireplace. (All the fireplaces are laid for burning if the weather's right.)

The rest of the inn is similarly wonderful. Kim, the owner, is welcoming and warm without being the least bit overbearing. Breakfast is fantastic. The outside firepit is perfect for snuggling up on a colder night, and the horses are great fun to watch. The flexibility means the place is great for family or for friends, but it could also be a great place for a romantic weekend away--something we plan to do ourselves in the near future.

I would recommend Fallen Tree Farm in a heartbeat.
