The Bruce House Inn is located within a 5 minute walk downtown. Pam is a very gracious hostess, very friendly, and very informative. We have stayed in a number of the rooms, and have not been disappointed at all. The rooms were spacious and very clean, and the beds comfortable. Pam accommodated my lactose intolerance. The breakfasts were outstanding and... More

The Bruce House was more reasonably priced chain hotel that was recommended to me when I scheduled a business trip to Cumberland in May. I contacted Pam before I booked to ensure she would be able to provide me with a vegan breakfast. She said yes and I was treated to a wonderful waffle and fruit breakfast with vegan sausage!...

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit, and your vegan breakfast. We are getting more and more business guests that are looking for an alternative to chain hotels. It was lovely to meet you and hope you visit us again! More

Hi Susan! Could you provide me with more information as to the room you stayed in? All photos are accurate and we have never had any complaints that they were misleading. Also, the entire inn is air conditioned and guests are advised upon check in to let me know if it is not comfortable. More

The Bruce House Inn is in a fantastic setting - up on a hill and a five minute walk from downtown restaurants. We stayed in the Library - which is quite large and has its own sitting room. The bedroom is beautiful, with intricate wood paneling. The sitting room I would describe as a little quirky, but a nice place... More

My husband and I traveled to Cumberland to take in a scenic train ride this past Valentine's Day weekend (2016) and stayed at the Bruce House. Our room was the Crow's Nest. The weather for the weekend was bitter cold but, you would not have known it in the quaint home. Our room was warm, well appointed and comfortably furnished.... More

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.

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!

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...
