The Inn is two historic homes, one of which was owned by President Grant's father-in-law. The innkeeper was friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. We reserved room 9, which had two attached bedrooms for us and our teenage boys. The rooms were incredibly homey and comfortable. One thing to be aware of: the website says the room has a private bathroom. This is technically true, in that the bathroom down the the hall is labelled 9 and we got a key to lock it, however, we had to walk past rooms 10 and 11 to get to the bathroom. This was not a problem for us at all because rooms 10 and 11 were not occupied the night we stayed at the Inn so we had the entire floor to ourselves, however, if there were other guests on the floor it would not have felt like I had a private bathroom. Also, this is an Inn, not a B&B. There is no breakfast. On the whole, this was a lovely place to stay. Be aware that Cumberland appears to be struggling. Downtown was all but abandoned.
