Mist rising over rolling farmland lifts the curtain on another day in this scenic gateway into Amish Country. Morning feels as calm as dew. You’re well rested and ready to start the day. Rise and shine. This is your country wake-up call—courtesy of the Carlisle Inn Sugarcreek.


A Haven of Peace & Comfort

History and heritage, natural beauty, and all the modern comforts work in harmony to make the Carlisle Inn a special destination for everyone. Couples can relax and reconnect. Families can reunite and share quality time together. Groups can gather for productive meetings and enjoyable social events…all within easy reach of dozens of cities and towns in America’s heartland.

More than the Comforts of Home

Everything about the Carlisle Inn feels special—especially the warmth and charm built into the inn’s public spaces and guest rooms by local Amish woodworkers and craftsmen. Their handiwork is everywhere you look—from the cozy wood paneled library to the wide variety of handsome, handcrafted beds.

Each floor is distinctively decorated in a different style—such as Shaker, mission, cottage, or country—with oak and cherry trim, doors, and moldings. Off the wide, welcoming hallways, generous guest rooms feature either two queen-size or one king-size bed. Other room options include executive rooms, with a fireplace and Jacuzzi, or two-bedroom suites, each with a large, comfortable living room connecting the sleeping quarters

Every room at the Carlisle Inn also features a balcony or porch for experiencing this country oasis—from the whitetail deer grazing at dusk in the close-by country churchyard to the slow sky circle of a red-tailed hawk or the blue flash of a kingfisher.

Modern Amenities

Spacious sitting areas and cozy nooks with comfy couches and chairs are scattered throughout Carlisle Inn—perfect spots for reading and relaxing. Check your email through our free wifi or on our guest computer. For more active pursuits, there’s a swimming pool and hot tub in an all-season room with a retractable glass roof, and an exercise and game area.

In the second floor sitting area, you can play the piano, challenge someone to a game of checkers, or work on whatever jigsaw puzzle is in progress on the corner table by the fireplace. There are plenty of tables by sunny windows for enjoying our complimentary country-style continental breakfast (upgradable to a hot breakfast at nearby Dutch Valley Restaurant), and you’re always welcome to help yourself to a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

All within walking distance, shopping opportunities abound with our gift shop and retail food store, as well as dining at Dutch Valley Restaurant.
