We stayed at Bruce House to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. The Columbia Bruce room was cozy, quiet, and relaxing. Pam provided us with lots of recommendations about what to do and where to eat during our stay. Breakfast was scrumptious and filling! Port wine and cookies also added a nice touch. We hope to make it back at some...

We spent 3 nights at Bruce House as we explored Cumberland at Christmas. So nice to come in from the cold to warm up in our delightfully cozy room. Each morning we had a delicious and filling breakfast with creative fruits and eggs and muffins. Pam was a wonderful host. Will definitely recommend to friends and would readily return.

This place could not have been more cozy and quaint. My husband and I were only staying one night but everything was great. We had the third floor to ourselves and it was so warm and clean and beautiful. We had to check out around 6am and the innkeeper was sweet enough to leave us muffins. We plan on spending...

We spent two nights at Bruce House to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We couldn't have chosen a more relaxing and beautiful place. Our second floor room provided beautiful views; church steeples and lights from the town below. It was comfortable and evertything we needed was there.

This review will be similar to the last review on TA. Stayed for 2 nights as part of a trip to Falling Water. Great place, great host, the room (the library) was even nicer than depicted on the web site. Pam's suggestions on places to see and eat were just right.

We had a great weekend stay at this beautiful B&B. It was well located for the activities we were interested in: about a 3 minute bike ride to the start of the C&O Canal Towpath, and about 1 hour 10 minutes from the Fallingwater House. Breakfast was a special treat, and we loved indulging in nightly port and chocolate. Highly...

Beautiful home wonderful host and a delicious breakfast can all be found at the Bruce house. Also went to the Charis winery and received tasty when we mentioned staying at the Bruce house. She has some of the port available. Yum. The bed and breakfast is close area attractions but is in a very nice and quite area.

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!...
