Our two night stay just after Labor Day was simply too short - I wish we could have stayed with Karen and Dave at Timbercliffe Cottage longer. It was the best B&B of our 11 night vacation in Maine and Rhode Island. Dave and Karen are warm and helpful hosts, they feel like friends right away.
Our experience was fabulous. The rooms are very thoughtfully put together and give you a true early New England feel. Sitting out on the wrap-around porch one evening when the house was quiet, we were able to pretend the lovely view belonged to us alone - it was a sweet daydream!
I especially admired the pantry filled with treats for the guest, well, more specifically the uber fabulous expresso/coffee machine. I saw the same model at Williams Sonoma. Delish coffee to go with the fresh baked cookies, heaven!
We stayed in the 1620 Chamber and it was a very nice size room with a king bed and had a lot of nice little touches and decorations. Towels and bedding are high quality and super comfy. I will have to say that the bathroom for the 1620 Chamber is seriously tiny, but this is a seriously old home. It is not surprising that a bathroom could be small and it did not impact the enjoyment of our stay at all. If a big bathroom is important to you, however, you should absolutely still stay at Timbercliffe - just choose a different room.
Both mornings we were able to have our breakfast outside on the porch. The food was artfully presented and delicious. Karen works hard on the quality and variety of dishes and it shows. We never left hungry.
Timbercliffe Cottage is the perfect choice for the traveler to Camden who appreciates warm hospitality and lovely surroundings (and a cookie or two!).
