Beautiful, clean, great area. We had a fantastic weekend!

My group stayed the weekend to enjoy a relaxing, low stress bachelor party. We found several great places to eat and thoroughly enjoyed the garden and deck out back.

Beautiful house, plenty of space!

  • 4 of 5

My Mom, sisters, and I had a wonderful ladies weekend!! 'Glass Gable South" was just as listed. Beautiful woodwork, plenty of space and a well stocked kitchen. We really enjoyed the outdoor patio and flower gardens. Diana the owner was very nice and helpful upon arrival.

I do have to mention that the owners live on the premise in the carriage house.This was not really a problem....with that said. At 8:30 am Saturday morning the lawn mowing started. Followed by weed whacking!!! For a bunch of mamas away from their little ones, sleeping in was not an option. Diana did apologize and we enjoyed the rest of the day in beautiful Carlisle.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find. The owner met us promptly and showed us the home. Everything was clean and ready for us to just unpack our bags, stock the fridge with food and drink and enjoy our vacation.
