House rules
The host doesn’t allow pets or smoking.
We encourage our guests to disconnect and unwind while staying at our Inn. Once you check-in you’ll find that we make it very easy to relax. With no distractions such as televisions or wifi you’ll be able to truly enjoy the natural beauty of the smells, sounds, and sights of rural farm life. Hear our rooster crow and watch them nest in trees at dusk. Watch the goats and sheep play in pastures. Collect free-range eggs. Cut flowers or stroll out to barn.

The space
Please check out all of our rooms at Red Tomato Farm & Inn on Airbnb: Big Boy Suite, Box Car Willie Room and Beefsteak Room.

Enjoy your stay in our renovated farmhouse that was initially a log cabin built in the 1800’s. It is perfectly nestled in between pastures and trees and is a short walk to our gardens and a beautiful bank barn.

The staff that you will find cleaning the Inn, making up your room and setting out coffee and other treats are learning how to be inn-keepers. This is an active farm with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities that work daily with our livestock, agriculture, and the Inn. They take great pride in making your stay as comfortable as possible. By staying at the Inn guests increase opportunity for inn-keepers to make interesting acquaintances, learn about new places, become more proficient at hospitality and housekeeping, and share their enthusiasm and knowledge about Red Tomato Farm & Inn.

Guest access
Guests will have access to their private room and bathroom, a shared living area, dining room, work space, kitchen, laundry room, outside patio, backyard, pasture and picnic area. Guests may also use our pool in warmer weather. (Swim at your own risk, no life guard on duty.)

Other things to note
Unfortunately, due to the age and interior architecture, the inn is NOT handicap accessible. All guest rooms are located on the second floor via stairs.

Currently, we are following Covid-19 precautions at the Inn. We thank all of our guests for their patience and understanding as we work to keep our staff and guests safe during this time.

The Inn is still OPEN for travelers, but with the following precautions/guidelines in place:

We are asking guests to please wear masks when they are in our common spaces in the Inn and to please follow social distancing guidelines of 6-feet.

Guests will be asked to answer this Covid-19 Symptom Questionnaire on the day of their arrival. If guests answer YES to any of the questions, we would ask that they delay their stay for 14 days to prevent the spread of Covid-19 to our staff and other guests.

1. Do you have a fever (over 100.0 degrees) or respiratory symptoms such as: cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, chills, body aches, muscle pain, headache, or new loss of taste or smell, headache, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, and runny nose?

2. Have you tested positive for COVID-19, have a test pending for COVID-19, or been told by a medical provider that you may or do have COVID-19?

3. In the past 14 days, have you had a potential exposure to a person with COVID-19?
A potential exposure means a household contact or having close contact within 6 feet of an individual with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 for at least 10 minutes. The timeframe for having contact with an individual includes the period of time of 48 hours before the individual became symptomatic.

Location

Newville, Pennsylvania, United States

Our Inn is conveniently located just south of Carlisle, Pennsylvania allowing for an easy drive to Gettysburg, Hershey, Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Lancaster. Our Newville, PA lodging is close to the Appalachian Trail for fantastic hiking and gorgeous fall foliage in the autumn months. Kings Gap Environmental Education Center has varied trails to accomodate all levels of hikers. Yellow Breeches or the LeTort Spring Run provides an excellent opportunity for fly fishing.

For those that enjoy cars, Carlisle is known for its collector car shows held at the Carlisle Fairgrounds during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.

The Carlisle area is the home for many higher education institutes such as Dickinson College, Messiah College, and Penn State’s Dickinson School of Law. Also, Shippensburg Univeristy is located nearby. It's also notable that the US Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, home of the Carlisle Indian School (Jim Thorpe’s alma mater), is in close proximity to our Inn.

Please visit The Cumberland Valley and Gettysburg Travel sites for more information on area restaurants, shopping and current events.

As part of our concierge services, local maps are offered with directions to tourist attractions, restaurants, and other places of interest.
