Good Timber B&B is ranked as one of the two most remarkable B&Bs we have ever experienced.(We have stayed at quite a few over the years). It is only 1 of 2 B&Bs located on Deep Creek Lake in Oakland, MD. The other B&B is in the middle of a housing development. Good Timber is in a forested locale. Very... More

Vianne and Mike Bell are truly gifted at making you feel like one of the family at Good Timber. To date, I would have to say that our 3 days were the best B&B experience we have had to date. Exceptional decor and creative delicious breakfasts, evening wine, tasty treats and conversation attest to the devotion of our hosts in... More

My husband and I have stayed in many B&Bs but none that top the beauty of the Good Timber and the charm and spirit of its keepers, Vianne and Michael. We were lucky enough to have the cabin and innkeepers all to ourselves for a few days which allowed us to spend some quality time getting to know them. Their... More

Already booked next year. The home and room were beautiful and spotless! Michael and Vianne were great to get to know as well as their other guests. Until we can find our own home away from home this is where I want to be! Another advantage is that it is between McHenry and Oakland which makes for a great Deep... More

Our first bed & breakfast experience ever, and we bet it will be hard to beat. The fact that we've never stayed at a B&B before, I took a "huge" risk by picking a B&B as the place to go for the FIRST night of our honeymoon. But boy am I glad we did, and I could not have imagined... More

If you are ever looking to stay in the Deep Creek Lake or Western Maryland area, Good Timber Bed and Breakfast is a "must stay!" My wife and I have been going here for 9 years straight, 3-4 times per year. It is a very special place to relax, enjoy and even make new friends. It is a log-style beautiful... More

Gotta say, after a few times staying at Good Timber B&B, Vianne and Mike Bell have spoiled us rotten. This is our favorite B&B by far, definitely above the other B&Bs we have visited. Of course each B&B has it's own ambience, which we totally appreciate! But if you're looking to enjoy the peace and quiet of Deep Creek Lake... More

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
