Regarding Cleveland Cottage. After the White House wedding in Washington, DC, President Cleveland sent two wedding guests off in the Presidential Carriage as decoys. While the press chased after the carriage, he and his new bride quietly headed off to the Baltimore and Ohio station and took a train to the Deer Park Hotel, a classy railroad resort in the Allegheny Mountains of Western Maryland. They probably traveled in his private rail car, which still exists.
