“Can't believe this is in Cumberland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

This house is huge, owned by an influential rail road baron family in Cumberland, which was the Queen City to Baltimore's King City. It is just huge for such a small town sitting on Washington Street with lots of other mansions. An excellent tour. An undiscovered gem. They start off the tour with hot tea and cookies. You will learn about Cumberland through the history of the house. Well worth it....

“Great tour of a fantastic Victorian house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

We were passing through Cumberland and wanted to stop and see some of the sites there. Fortunately, we had found through the web, something about the Gordon-Roberts House. It's a beautifully restored home with wonderful Victorian furnishings. Our tour guide was well-versed not only in the house but also the lifestyle of those who lived there. They started our tour off with hot tea and cookies in the front hallway. What a nice added touch and a great way to get the Victorian feel of the house. The garden is lovely too. We finished our tour with a trip to their well-stocked gift shop. Everyone in my group felt it was indeed worth the trip and we definitely want to go back for one of their Victorian teas which they hold in the parlor.
