March News

from the Carlisle House

Spring is here! Well, to be more accurate, "Meteorological Spring" which starts on March 1 is here, and the Astronomical Spring will be here in just three weeks. For Carlisle however, Spring is truly here when the Spring Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet & Corral starts on April 24! Carlisle Events puts it best - "The event plays host to thousands of collector and classic automotive enthusiasts, who travel to the 150-acre Carlisle PA Fairgrounds from all points of the globe to buy, sell and celebrate all things automotive." We have two rooms still available for each of the All-Ford Nationals and Corvettes at Carlisle so book on-line or call us soon! (717-249-0350)

Whether your preference is meteorological, astronomical, or automotive put a little Spring in your Step and come to the Carlisle House for your first Vernal Vacation of the year!
