We had such a fantastic time touring the Cumberland Gap National Park. The best part was staying at the Cumberland Manor! Jill, our hostess, was so kind and gave us some fantastic tips for various things to do while traveling in Kentucky. She has such a warm personality, and it is clear that she loves what she does.

While on a business trip to the area I decided to try Cumberland Manor B&B instead of the usual hotel and couldn’t have been more pleased. The room and accommodations were clean and comfortable – just like home. I wish I had gotten there earlier and taken advantage of the enormous front porch. Ask Jill for an omelet for breakfast!

This is a wonderful place. The house and room are very spacious. The food for breakfast was delicious and attractively served. Jill is a wonderful hostess. She communicated with us and let us know how we could get into the house, if she wasn't there. It was fun visiting with her, too. She gave us some great recommendations of places...

A most welcome and relaxing environment to view scenery as well as be in awe of the ambiance of the front porch feel of watching the morning start or the day to end.

This Victorian house was a joy to experience in the inside decor and the carefully tended outside. Jill is the finest hostess, making us feel at home right away and providing us with the most delicious breakfasts. We highly recommend this superlative B&B! Rob and Kathleen Conway Tempe, AZ

My wife always wanted to go to Cumberland Gap, and she found this very nice place. Huge Victorian house, comfortable beds, wonderful host, great eggs Benedict for breakfast. Jill advised us on things to do, and interesting geographical history of the area. A bit out of the way - but we liked that.

A wonderful stay in a historic mansion, beautifully furnished. Jill was so helpful and went out of her way to make my visit very special. The food was excellent, and the site is unique: on the rim of a crater caused by a meteor crash eons ago which formed the crater is which the city sits.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This 124 year old Victorian mansion, built for John B. Cary, the secretary-treasurer of this uniquely historic town, has 20 rooms furnished in period antiques and stained glass windows. Overlooking historic downtown Middlesboro, it has views of three states and the Cumberland Mountains. One mile from Cumberland Gap, TN, you can enjoy wildlife, scenic hikes, State and National Parks, golf, lots of special events, museums and history. I try to use fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs from my garden at every meal. I offer healthy and gluten-free options and something special for those who have a sweet tooth. ... more   less
