Where to Stay When Visiting Your Carlisle, PA College Students

Whether you’re planning on visiting your college student for the weekend or dropping them off for the first time, it’s comforting to stay close to campus until you say your goodbyes. With Carlisle being home to Dickinson College and close to Penn State Dickinson Law, our luxury Carlisle Inn makes visiting your scholar convenient and comfortable! Here are just a few reasons to stay at The Smith Steiner while you’re in town.

Penn State Dickinson Law

Walking Distance to Both Campuses

If you’re planning a campus tour with your prospective student or visiting for a special parent’s event, you will want to take advantage of close lodging for your visit.

Here at The Smith Steiner, the best bed and breakfast in PA, we are lucky enough to be walking distance to both prestigious schools.

Being this close to both schools makes it a breeze to travel back and forth between the comfort of your luxurious guest room to the hustle and bustle of campus. Some of our favorite times to host parents include welcome weekend and parents’ weekend. Both campuses are buzzing with excitement and the town is full of life.
