  • Activities and Amenities

    Fallen Tree Farm - Carlisle, PennsylvaniaFallen Tree Farm is a labor of love for Innkeepers Kim and Brent Hanlin. They considered the idea of purchasing a home to convert into a bed and breakfast for many years before it became a reality. The home dates back to 1797 but it features many modern amenities, such as high speed wireless internet, a commercial grade kitchen and gas fireplaces. Next on the list is converting the hand dug front basement into a wine cellar.

    There are many things to do here on the farm during your stay with us. Shoot some hoops on our basketball court, tucked up in the woods. Walk our five acres of nature trails or laze the day away on one of the porches with a good book. Fall foliage abounds at Fallen Tree. The woods are an abundant source of firewood, nature walks and home to many creatures. We are in the process of clearing bridle paths for horseback riding and jogging.

    Fallen Tree is blessed with lovely old brick walkways and antique iron fencing. The gardens at Fallen Tree are a constant changing feature. Both Kim and Brent are landscape enthusiasts and enjoy experimenting with different garden themes and water features. We have many different beds planned for the future but some of the beds inherited from the farm's previous owner are quite lovely as well.

    Fallen Tree is home to 6 horses and ponies. The pony paddock features our most snuggly ponies, Fudge and Sundae. Former lesson ponies, they now spend their days grazing and keeping an eye out for visitors who might have apples and carrots. Fudge and Sundae provide pony rides for the Birthday events hosted at Fallen Tree. They like everybody but are especially fond of youngsters. .

    Fallen Tree's resident gentle giant, Sullivan is a Newfoundland we adopted. He is great with all four and two legged creatures. Sully is only allowed to visit at guests' request and does not spend any time on the guest's side of the property.
