About The Kensington

Rooted in historyCumberland_carriage ride-228w

Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains, near the source of the Potomac River and one of General George Washington’s encampment sites, The Kensington stands as 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.

Serving our families today

The Kensington is an integral part of the community, participating in all the annual parades and celebrations. It’s close to shopping and banks, medical services, restaurants and the library.

The building’s high-vaulted ceilings, marble floors, plush carpets and comfortable furniture create a welcoming entry. An adjacent lounge offers a scenic view of Wills Creek and historic downtown Cumberland. The family room has complete kitchen Cumb_CalSep19-228hfacilities for entertaining, as well as a large-screen TV.

New families are welcomed with a special dinner and invited to participate in the Heart to Heart program. Family Traditions events are planned throughout the year, including the annual Big Band Winter Gala and Family Carnival & Cookout. Regular seminars are offered on topics such as healthy aging and financial planning.

These and other family services provide fellowship and support, as well as special occasions for loved ones to share good times together.

Residents enjoy picnics on the patio, Bible studies, exercise classes, dancing, and their very own chapter of the Red Hat Society. HelpingKE Brochure photo 1-228w at the hospital or reading to school children make resident volunteers feel good about themselves.

Regular trips are scheduled for shopping, concerts, planetarium shows and nature excursions. Residents especially look forward to their annual ride on the famous Western Maryland Scenic Railroad, pulled by an original steam engine through the mountains, to see the fall foliage. The Depot is only a block away.
