About

Up to 300 guests

The Two-Mile House was built in the 1820s by James Given in the Federal Style. It served as a tavern from 1826 to 1857, hosting many a weary traveler. After its life as a tavern, the property became a private residence. The last owners Joseph and Mary King bequeathed the house to the Cumberland County Historical Society, who today administer the property. The King’s loved to entertain and in their memory the property is available to rent for parties, business meetings, weddings, and receptions.

The Two-Mile House rests on a five-acre property in Carlisle, PA. The House has nine rooms available during the rental and an outside patio that is tent covered from spring to fall.

Included in the rental are four 48-inch tables, four 33-inch pub tables, 65 chairs, six card tables, six 6-foot rectangle tables, three easels, dishes, glasses, flatware, two ovens, a dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator. The Two-Mile House, along with the full kitchen, has two dining rooms, two parlors, a terrace room, two powders rooms, and two dressing rooms.

This property is available from 8 am to 10 pm.

    Simply amazing

    Sharon was awesome! She helped us reschedule several times. She was quick to respond to any questions we had and made sure everything was perfect for our big day.

    2020 Wedding

    I knew the moment we met Sharon this was our venue. She is passionate about her job and the history of the amazing property. There are amazing places around every corner to get great pictures. They have a supply of chairs, tables, decor, and fully stocked kitchen which we used and was a money saver at the end of the day too. We looked at several local venues but none had the charm of the Two Mile House and none had Sharon, who was easy to get ahold of and full of enthusiasm and information

    Great venue!!!

    I could not recommend the Two Mile House enough! We had our wedding and reception on the property. Having all of the outdoor space and the house amenities, how could you need anymore?
    Not to mention, the possibilities to customize anything and everything there, to make your special day EXACTLY what you would want! If you like the rustic/historical setting, this is the place for you!

    Sharon, with the historical society is the BEST to work with and she will go above and beyond to help you. Love, love, love everything about this house and property. I am SO happy that we had our wedding here!
