    Beautiful Venue

    The Cumberland House is absolutely beautiful! We knew we wanted to get married there the moment we walked inside. Kathi is a joy to work with. She is so helpful, and we love that she was a part of our day. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how lovely the house and garden are. There are several options for ceremony locations on the property as well as gorgeous places to take photos. We are so happy we chose The Cumberland House, and we highly recommend it!
