It was 7 years ago that I made my first trip up to Good Timber Bed and Breakfast after reading a glowing article about this very special place featured in the Maryland Magazine. That first stay was all the rave reviews had claimed and more. Good Timber is more than just a place to stay in Deep Creek Lake. Vianne and Michael have designed a home that they open to their guests in a very unique way. They demonstrate a genuine interest in getting to know the people that they welcome as they share their life on the lake.
Their home exudes the dedication they have to the Appalacian community that surrounds it. Numerous local artisans have contributed to the beauty of the home, from furniture, to nick nacks. And as you arrive,, your individuality as well is celebrated in the hospitality rendered. When Vianne serves breakfast, she never fails to mention the jam or other special item made by one of her guests, who she no doubt treasures. As you relax during the afternoon wine and homemade refreshments, guests share their stories in a very intimate, comfortable environment. The rooms are extremely clean and inviting, providing a luxurious, yet simple respit.
Vianne and Michael are very active members of their community, therefore extremely helpful for any interest or question a guest might have. They demonstrate a sincere desire to make your stay at their home and in their community a wonderful experience. Although I have traveled to many wonderful places around the world, Good Timber remains my favorite, a very special home away from home that I return to on more than one occasion each year.
