Named for one of Bruce House’s original owners, reputed to be a descendant of the Scottish hero Robert the Bruce, this grand two-room English library-style suite features high ceilings, intricate 19th century wood paneling, a queen-size antiqued-brass bed, and separate dressing room featuring an elegant lighted vanity.

What can I say, other than that the Bruce House is fantastic. Pam, our host, was outgoing and friendly. Our room was charming, tastefully decorated, and had the most luxurious bathroom I've ever encountered at a B&B, as well as having the most comfortable mattress of any B&B. The most welcome surprise was Pam's ability to accommodate vegetarians. The bacon wasn't just absent from the plate, but was replaced with veggie sausage. This says everything about a hostess. A true find.

We were very surprised by the spacious room and exceptional retreat within a historic small town. The host did a great job helping us figure out what to see and do. Her breakfast was exquisite - unique and tasty. We have recommended this B&B to others passing through Cumberland.

Arrived on a rainy, cold evening to a welcoming hostess and fire in the fireplace. We had just traveled through some terrible sleety weather and were glad to enter the front door to such a warm welcome. Pam was so kind and helpful in every way. Our room was cozy and comfortable. Pam had thought of all the little extras that made our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was delicious and so elegantly done. We recommend this B&B and hope to return and explore Cumberland and all it has to offer a tourist.

We were warmly greeted by Pam. After showing us to our room she offered us a glass of wine and gave recommendations for dinner. Breakfast was very good with seconds offered. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean.
