  • What an unusual place to visit. Loads of taxidermy animals. The cross collection and art is worth seeing. Its free! 
  • I didn't realize that this was strictly a museum of taxidermy. Not my normal thing but I can admire the skill it took to create. The sheer size of some of the animals was amazing. 
  • The Musuem is inside the Cumberland Inn and Museum. We spent a lot of time wandering the exhibits and were amazed at the collection of animals on display. Highly recommend it. 
  • The hotel was really pretty, very clean and the rooms were pretty big and comfortable. The night manager was very sweet and helpful.
  • The Cumberland Inn is absolutely beautiful! When we first walked in we were taken aback by the staircase; WOW! Talk about the perfect place for a wedding; which indecently enough there was one being set up a few hours later. Everyone should check out the museum! It is small, but we enjoyed not having a crowd and being able to truly take everything in. There is a large area for parties - we actually had a family reunion here. The view around this hotel is of course beautiful; all of the south is. There is a separate building full of windows with an indoor pool. You won't be disappointed staying here!
  • Stayed one night on the way from Indiana to South Carolina. Wanted to try something different than your regular interstate-side chain hotel. This was a great find! The main building is impressive as soon as you walk in. Everything was clean and fresh. There was a wedding going on so I think rooms were mostly all used. The breakfast was solid, biscuits and gravy, eggs, make your own waffles, breads, hot and cold cereal. The only downside is that the doors close pretty heavily if you just let them close automatically. And someone had a barking dog on the second floor (a non-pet floor). But still five stars because you can choose the hotel, but you can't choose the other people in the hotel. If you want to stop in this area I would recommend stopping here because it's unique with all the amenities of a regular hotel. Also the steakhouse is great for dinner too, reasonably priced.
  • This hotel was AMAZING!!! It was so clean and the staff was super nice!! The only thing I think needs improvement is the pool area. Its kind of small and very hot to sit and watch the kids swim.
  • Cumberland Inn is unusal in that it's also a college and museum in addition to a hotel/motel. The rooms are nicely furnished with king-sized beds, moderately-sized flat screen televisions, mini-fridges that you can put your own damn stuff in (they don't contain all that expebsive crap that costs more than three times what it's actually worth, probably partly because there'a a convenience store within easy walking distance). I can't make a fair judgment about about the Patriot Steak House because I only had buffet breakfast there, none of the lunches or dinners. If for some reason you really want to know what they have for breakfast, read the last paragraph of this review. Anyway, they have an indoor pool and hot tub (they call it a whirlpool), which is nice. The timer for the bubbles in the hottub didn't work too well, but they probably fixed that by now. I think there's a coin laundry room there too. Okay, this the last paragraph, so if you don't care what the breakfast menu is, stop reading now. The breakfast buffet is okay, but it's nothing special. It's got "scrambled" eggs, cereal, yogurt, waffles, sausage links, biscuits, gravy, small pastries, small muffins, milk, orange juice, apple juice, grape juice, butter, cream cheese (although I don't specifically remember bagels), and... I think there might have been apples, but I can't be sure.
