at Stone House Farm
Our Inn is conveniently located just south of Carlisle, Pennsylvania allowing for an easy drive to Gettysburg, Hershey, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Lancaster. Our Newville, PA lodging is close to the Appalachian Trail for fantastic hiking and gorgeous fall foliage in the autumn months. Kings Gap Environmental Education Center has varied trails to accomodate all levels of hikers. Yellow Breeches or the LeTort Spring Run provides an excellent opportunity for fly fishing.
For those that enjoy cars, Carlisle is known for its collector car shows held at the Carlisle Fairgrounds during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
The Carlisle area is the home for many higher education institutes such as Dickinson College, Messiah College, and Penn State’s Dickinson School of Law. Also, Shippensburg Univeristy is located nearby. It's also notable that the US Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, home of the Carlisle Indian School (Jim Thorpe’s alma mater), is in close proximity to our Inn.
