What a great place to stay! Excellent location; excellent rooms and overall presentation; excellent breakfast; and wonderful owners and hosts. Came for one night by chance and last minute, and decided to stay for a second night and spend New Year's Eve in Cumberland, MD. Would come back anytime. Thanks for a wonderful time!

The Bruce House Inn is comfy and cozy. It's worn charm is homey and comfortable. A nice easy walk to downtown -it's close to Washington St, which is lined with lovely Victorian era homes. Worth a walk on both sides of the street. Easy to enjoy this B&B's small town setting. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Best to book in... More

We stayed at the Bruce House Inn as a starting point for our bicycle trip on the Greater Allegheny Passage. We were amazed at what a terrific town Cumberland is! Well worth a visit! The Inn is located in a beautiful historic residential district a short walk from town. Bruce House was a wonderful choice. It was quiet with an... More

Husband and I stayed here on our 26th anniversary, driving home from the east coast to Chicago. Cumberland is a really historic town that is hopefully on its way back up but for anyone driving through or biking through the Alleghany route, this is a wonderful place to stay for a night or two. Great breakfast, too!

We love Western Maryland and have passed through Cumberland hundreds of times but never spent a weekend there – our loss. We were rewarded this past weekend with the drive up Rt. 70 to Rt. 68 at the peak of fall colors. The past few years have been a disappointment for the foliage displays but we hit the mark on...

We stayed in the Monk's Room one night on our way to the Midwest. We needed a quiet place not too far from the highway where we could get an early start the next morning. This place was perfect. You have to be ready to climb stairs, but the room was large, well-decorated, clean, quiet, and comfortable. Lots of outlets... More

We stayed in the Washington Room. It was very comfortable and fairly clean minus a few spider webs and dirty window sills. Blinds in the room aren't totally private but just don't walk around naked I guess. Shay was our hostess and was very cordial and friendly. Breakfast was just fine and very tasty with great coffee. An Italian restaurant... More

While traveling back to the DC area after a weekend in MI, my husband and I opted for the more scenic route along I68 looking for fall colors. Cumberland and the Bruce House Inn caught my interest because we cycle, and the Inn is right along the GAP Trail and the C&O Canal path. We wanted to check it out... More

My friend and I reserved a room at the Bruce House as we cycled along the Great Allegheny Passage and the C and O bike trail. Sadly, a few short miles from Cumberland, we crashed our bikes. I called my husband in California and he contacted Shay at the Bruce House. When we finally stumbled to the Inn, she was... More

Check-in was quick and easy and Pam, the innkeeper greeted us and showed us to our room. We had been a little apprehensive because we booked the last room available, a suite on the first floor. But we couldn't have asked for more. Pam informed us that it had been the library and the high oak-covered walls were beautiful. The... More
