The Bruce House Inn was better than home. Not only did Pam have yummy treats when we arrived, the breakfasts were inspired and superb (near the end of our stay she let on that she had a few years of culinary school experience--it showed!). The beds were AMAZING--so soft, snuggly and the rooms were perfectly appointed. Pam recommended two restaurants... More

The Bruce House Inn is a warm and inviting historic little gem! The innkeeper/owner Pam is a cheerful accommodating hostess and also a serves a great breakfast! The little touches all around, from the extensive and varied library and game shelf to the port and biscotti left out for a relaxing end to you day! The rooms are very well... More

We stayed here for two nights. This was our first time in Cumberland -the homes and streets are well tended and the people are welcoming. Biking the C&O canal was our main planned activity for this trip, so it was great that Pam provides a safe place to stow ones bicycles. We enjoyed the fireplace in our room at night... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Bruce House Inn on 3 occasions. I was in Cumberland on business & the Bruce House was a better value than any of the hotels I considered. Since my visits were in the month of February the fireplace was most enjoyable and relaxing. My wife accompanied me on one trip. She was... More

The innkeeper was gracious and accomodating, and very sweet. I will definitely recommend the Bruce House to my friends and colleagues who visit Cumberland.

My husband and I spent Valentines weekend and the room was perfect. They provided wine and chocolate covered strawberries. A complimentary wine tasting. The food was AWESOME. The owner was also wonderful No complaints. Loved it and would return again!

My husband, an avid biker, had stayed here on a cross-country bike trip and always wanted to return. After cross country skiing at nearby (about 30 minutes) New Germany State Park, we arrived on Pam's doorstep cold, wet and tired. She showed us to our large room on the first floor with a sitting area and a dressing room! The... More

Thanks for the lovely review! We try hard to accommodate both our outdoor recreation guests (cycling, hiking, skiing, etc) and our guests who want to relax, sleep in, and have 'couples' time. I'm glad your husband returned to the Bruce House and brought his lovely wife. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again! More

We stayed at this lovely B and B in November. We chose the "crows nest" & found it to be very cozy. Afternoon tea/ coffee/wine was available, (along with fresh baked goodies) in the parlor, & we enjoyed them in front of a roaring fire.
