Breakfast in Carlisle PA

On the menu this morning: "real", local strawberries! Our local strawberry producer called us yesterday to tell us that he picked the first batch of this year's crop! We appreciate the efforts of our far away neighbors in Florida & California to provide us with fruit almost year-round, but there is nothing so tasty as 'real', local fruit freshly picked! Our guests will have strawberries this morning and if you are staying with us this weekend, expect to see FRESH strawberries on the breakfast menu.

The Harrisburg Artfest will be held this weekend on Front Street. Bruce Garrabrandt, one of innkeeper friends at The Artist's Inn in Terre Hill PA, will be selling his whimsical art work at Artfest. Stay with us at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast this weekend - out of the hustle-bustle of the capital city - and visit Harrisburg's fun art festival. Say "hi" to Bruce from us!

Happy Anniversary

May is a special month at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast. We hosted our first guests in May 1994 - that's 17 years ago! Over the years, we've grown from 4 rooms to eight rooms and from 8 acres to well over 10 acres. We've met so many wonderful people - some come back again and again and leave footprints on our hearts; others pass through our area only once but still provide great memories . Thanks to YOU for choosing Pheasant Field as a resting place, a quick stop over, a retreat center, and as a home away from home! We appreciate you and look forward to a continued relationship - indeed - a friendship with all of you!

We've been innkeepers for over 17 years, but Chuck & I have now been married 30 years! Recently we had guests who were celebrating their 1st anniversary. We also help celebrate at weddings held here at Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast. We host special guests who have been married as many as 60+ years! So we experience the joy of young love and the warmth of seasoned couples. Whatever stage of marriage or life you're currently experiencing, Pheasant Field Bed & Breakfast provides a comfortable place for a celebration, retreat, or just a quick getaway.

This weekend is Mothers' Day. You can surprise Mom with a getaway at our B&B. Check availability for HER special room!
