Carlisle Inn Walnut Creek

Carlisle Inn {WALNUT CREEK}

Holmes County Ohio is a particularly lovely part of the world. And the town of Walnut Creek seems to have sprung up within the folds of its rolling farmlands as naturally as the weeping willows that line the creek banks. Just as the trees instinctively situate themselves to take advantage of sun and water, the Carlisle Inn is planted in the perfect spot.

A Room with a View

The Carlisle Inn gracefully stretches out atop the gently sloping ridge that leads into the village of Walnut Creek, affording guests a remarkable view of the Ohio countryside.

To the south are the green pastures, grazing horses, and three-rail fences of Mud Valley, which is a great deal more picturesque than its name implies. To the north is the picture postcard landscape of Genza or Goose Bottom Valley and its bustling Amish farms.

A Place with Tradition

While the natural features of this charming country landscape shaped the inn’s design, the labor and craftsmanship of the industrious people who live here built it.

The building of the Carlisle Inn was a community effort, employing many of the county’s Amish woodworkers and carpenters. Their painstaking efforts are evident everywhere you look, from the oak and cherry wood trim to the sweeping curved staircase and wonderful handcrafted furniture. As construction began, orders were placed with local craftsmen for more than 75 wooden beds to place in the guest rooms. Quite possibly the most beautiful beds you'll ever sleep on in a hotel, you’ll still find these solid oak and cherry bedsteads as beautiful and sturdy as the day they were made.

A Peaceful, Comfortable Stay

The entire Inn is decorated to emphasize the beautiful setting and quaint character of Walnut Creek. Each spacious guest room has its own style. Pastoral scenes captured by Holmes County photographer Doyle Yoder brighten the Inn’s wide hallways and cozy little sitting areas. Additional welcome touches are found in the Carlisle’s meeting and banquet facilities.

The experience of staying at the Carlisle Inn also emphasizes warmth, rural charm, and small-town hospitality. Carlisle staff members consider it a privilege to get to know our guests and go out of their way to make each stay a truly memorable one.

An Abundance of Things to Do (or not!)

We think the Carlisle Inn is the ideal “home base” from which to discover all the simple pleasures of Amish Country. We get you off to a delicious start with a complimentary, country-style continental breakfast served in our sunny, second-floor sitting room.

Just across the street, you’ll find one-of-a-kind shopping experiences at Carlisle Gifts. We even offer an opportunity to see Walnut Creek the way the Amish do—from the seat of a custom-made, horse-drawn buggy. Purchase your ticket at the hotel and head over to the hitching post next to the shops.

Come Stay with Us Soon

Just be sure to make your Carlisle Inn reservation well in advance, especially if you’re visiting during peak seasons. That’s when many guests and groups return to the Carlisle Inn year after year.

Even when it’s snowing outside, it’s as warm as wool by the fireside at the Carlisle!
