OK Here we go! West bound out of Cumberland on US 40 according to Google maps 24.9 miles and you find the "Castleman Bridge" just east outside of Grantsville about 3/4 of a mile. Next to the bridge is a small period dated artisans village and one of the areas premiere restaurants "Penn Alps". There is a Period B&B as well. Up in Grantsville in a building that dates back to the late 1700s is another great restaurant call "The Castleman" originally owned and operated by the local Menonite community the food is good and priced is good. They also have a B&B and a motel next to the restaurant. Here then are the pics.
