My husband and I recently returned from our second visit to The Good Timber B&B and we loved it so much that we hated to leave. If you want to stay in a beautiful lodge and room, in a relaxing environment close to nature, with gourmet food and good company this is the place for you. The lodge itself is lovely (appointed with treasures made by local artists) and our room (the larger room on the main floor) has an oversized king size bed, a large double shower, large whirlpool bath, large flat screened tv with DVD player, and its own covered porch with lounge chairs reaching out into the woods. The lodge is surounded by lovely natural gardens that lead you to the Lake where there are canoes and kayacks for your use. See the photos attached of the lodge and the gardens. Fishing off of the pier is also good; my husband caught a 25" fish that we all ate! Every day at The Good Timber, the owners, Vianne and Mike, treat you not only to an exceptionally delicious gourmet breakfast but also a 5:30 pm wine and food delight. Also complimentary cold drinks, fresh cookies and candy are always available. And it is not just the lodge itself, its location, and the gourmet food that makes The Good Timber very special. It is also the good cheer and helpfulness of the owners Vianne and Mike who can't do enough for you and are happy to guide you to local attractions in the area where everyone knows them as they support the local businesses and artisans. The first year we went we spent 3 nights; this year 4 nights; and next year we hope to spend at least 5 nights. My husband and I have travelled and continue to travel the world (going to Southern France in September) and the Good Timber rates right up there with one of the best places we have ever visited. If you go there for a visit I am sure that you will agree and will become one of their many return visitors.
