Held a family reunion/fishing trip at Streams and Dreams and we couldn't have found a better place. The accommodations were perfect for a party of 18 adults both young and old. We stayed in both Brookside and Rivers Rest, the whole cottage and it worked perfectly. Both levels had full amenities and were clean and fresh upon arrival. With a... More

Although my husband and I were not staying at Streams and Dreams, a truly unique and lovely getaway-from-it-all B&B, I called Don up for a fly fishing lesson as a surprise for my spouse. I expected a 2-3 hour overview lesson. What we received was a meticulous, fun, informative, and completely thorough seminar on the fine art and science of... More

My family had never been to the Deep Creek area before and I was determined to show them this truly beautiful area. As luck would have it I found Streams and Dreams through the local chamber and visitor center and it was literally the only number that I needed to call. The owner Don answered the phone and I knew... More

If you like nature this is a very good place go to hike, relax and fish, especially with Don's local knowledge. My beautiful wife, Jill, took me here for my birthday this past spring. Unfortunately, the streams were washed out but Don pointed us to the local attractions that were not the lake itself. While that alone was fantastic, he... More

I took my neice, 14 years old, for her first ever fly fishing lesson. Don was super patient and informative. What a wonderful time, beautiful place, and wonderful couple. I highly recommend it and would do it again!

Great place to learn basic fly fishing skills and advanced skills. All within a short walk to the scenic Youghiogheny River which is teeming with a diverse mix of wildlife. Don has a vast knowledge of the subject plus is a naturalist to boot.

Don was an excellent fly fishing teacher and I would recommend that anyone desiring to master the basics invest the time to visit Streams & Dreams. Don taught us everything from how to read a river to how to successfully wade in the Yough and everything in between. Very satisfied beginner

I was there to relax and recover; my husband spent two days to learn fly fishing. Don's approach to fishing is environmentally sensitive and holistic. You're not just there to cast; his approach is exceptional in that there's an art and science to fly fishing, and that knowing the nature of the trout is just as valuable as the technique... More

My husband and I went there on December 6, 3013. We met Don and Karen and we stayed there for two nights. Don made Pancakes for the first morning. He gave us A4 papers and pencils and he asked us to draw what ever we want. I drew Flamingo and my husband drew a camera. Then, he took our sketches... More

Having stayed at countless B&Bs, I can say confidently that Streams and Dreams is not your garden-variety bed and breakfast nor are Don and Karen your typical hosts. I rate it "very good" if you are the kind of person who can enjoy their brand of hospitality -- things move at a slower pace, the grounds are not perfectly manicured... More
