From hotel to home.

Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains, near the source of the Potomac River and one of George Washington’s encampment sites, The Kensington stands as a proud testament to Cumberland’s storied past.

When it opened in 1926, the Algonquin Hotel was well known for its elegance and hospitality. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s just as accommodating as The Kensington—a beautiful home for seniors since 1989.

Located in downtown Cumberland, it’s close to shopping, medical services, restaurants and the library
