We stayed at Bruce House Inn last week while my husband rode the GAP and C&O canal. The Inn is historic yet modernized where it counts. Our Monk's room was a large one on the 3rd floor with a spacious bathroom and lots of windows. Only drawback was that it was warm for sleeping despite the window a/c, probably because... More

The Bruce House Inn is a favorite location to recommend and book for my out of town guests. I booked the Robert The Bruce suite for my out of town son and his fiance - now wife's - engagement. They were thrilled! Other friends and business connections who have stayed at the inn have been equally complimentary. Though I live... More

We enjoyed our nights here at The Bruce House Inn. Our stay was perfect and restful. Our room and bathroom were clean and everything was excellent. Pam is a great host and her breakfasts are to look forward to every morning.

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
