Our experience at the Good Timber was exceptional!! We had read the rave reviews before booking and found them to be exactly right. Every detail of design, decor, landscape, cuisine, and hospitality were perfect! The Good Timber B and B made us feel welcome, relaxed, and pampered. The owners have thought of everything to enhance the experience of one's stay... More

Using a Christmas gift certificate from our son and daughter-in-law, we spent 3 days and 2 nights at this wonderful B & B on Deep Creek Lake. The home is exactly as described in its website, with plenty of privacy and beautifully furnished with unique furnishings and antiques. As our stay was during an unexpected cold snap, the fireplace in... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Deep Creek! My husband and I were there on a "second honeymoon" and had a fabulous time. Vianne and Michael were so wonderful to us! It was truly like visiting family. The house is spotless, the rooms are so cozy, and they had everything you could imagine. The owners really go above... More

We have been going to Good Timber B &B for many years. We have never been disappointed. It is a gem, and we hope the owners and hosts, never decide to retire! They are the warmest people, wonderful cooks who serve 5 star breakfasts, and make you feel very comfortable. The rooms are lovely, and the beds are beautiful pieces... More

We loved this bed and breakfast. The owners, Vianne and Michael, treated us like family the minute we walked into their beautiful home. They pampered us with wonderful breakfasts and a happy hour each evening with wine and appetizers. We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this was our favorite. Their home was built as a B&B... More

We love this place. Great romantic get-away place, less than 3-hours fromt the Baltimore-Washington area. It is right on the lake and they have canoes and kayaks to take on from their own dock. The hostess, Vianne, is welcoming and attentive and very knowledgable about the area--in short, the perfect B&B hostess. The place is gorgeous, immaculate, and perfectly set... More

My husband (and most recently sister) and I have been going to Good Timber since a few weeks after they opened. The first time we went we thought it was too good to be true. We were sure it was just because they were new. However, for the past decade we have learned that there is no other bed and... More

Viane & Michael will do everything to make your stay extraordinary~ from the sumptuous breakfasts to the best " happy hour" in the area. They are the best! Rooms are clean & quite comfortable with all amenities! Can't wait to return!

This is my new definition of the perfect B & B! We recently visited for a long weekend and wished we would have stayed longer. We decided to stay in one of the less expensive rooms on the second floor and then splurge on massages on-site (Check out the picture on the massage area on their website!). The breakfast, the...
