This is a fabulous B & B. The rooms are great! Breakfast was delicious, and Pam truly did everything to make you feel comfortable. My wife and I had a great weekend, and can't wait to go back. If you are planning a trip to this area, this should be your only option!

We stayed one night midway on our bike trip from Pittsburgh to Washington. We had a good sized room on the ground floor with an en-suite bathroom. The bedroom is inviting and comfortable, with a well appointed en-suite bathroom. Bar-breakfast area has a fridge stocked with chilled water and cheese, and there is biscotti and fruit available for tired travellers...

We have stayed at the Bruce House since 2008 and every stay has been great. The rooms are comfortable and airy.

There is abundant on street parking and the Inn is within walking distance to the downtown restaurants. When visiting Cumberland the...

My wife and I spent our 37th anniversary at the Bruce House this past week and the entire experience was outstanding! The room we stayed was on the 3rd floor ("Monk's room) and was very charming with an incredibly comfortable bed. Pam, the owner was very gracious and an exceptional chef as our breakfasts were wonderful. We visited many of...

The Bruce House Inn is a wonderful alternative to a hotel. The house is beautiful. The rooms are finely decorated. The innkeeper, Pam, is a delight. The beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts are delicious. The inn is located high on a hill within walking distance to downtown. When in Cumberland, give Pam a call. You will not be...

Lovely old house with an interesting history. Pam the owner was gracious and solicitous and cooked a fantastic breakfast, to get us on our way for the first day of our four-day bike trek. Room was very clean and comfortable. I give it 4 stars.

This place was absolutely wonderful. We were riding the GAP and expected to arrive early. Towner arranged for us to get into our room and store our bikes at mid-day. The house is cool everywhere inside - a relief on a 90+ degree day. There is a good wifi signal and a computer for use by guests. There were afternoon...

Up to the 3rd floor (two big flights of stairs, not for those with bad knees) and surrounded by windows, we slept soundly in the Monk's room, a quiet get-away. The separate AC unit made our stay very comfortable. As it's under the eaves, be careful near the walls where headspace is limited (6'1" husband was at risk, and had...

The Bruce House Inn was a luxurious stop-over midway between Georgetown and PGH - Pam was out of town - but her staff were attentive and helpful in settling us in. There were 8 of us and we took up most of the inn (with the exception of the Monk's Room). Everyone had a brilliant night's sleep. Pam was back...

Everything at this B&B was immaculate. We stayed in a guest room on the first floor, which was warm and inviting. Comfy bed, nice linens, pretty bathroom. The Innkeeper made us feel right at home. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding with a western style omelet, muffin, fruit and yogurt, served in a lovely dining room. The historic downtown area...
