TimberCreek Bed & Breakfast is a gated, sophisticated country retreat on 25 acres. It is situated at the end of a 1/4 mile lighted, winding lane in a secluded Illinois meadow surrounded by trees and a stream. It is the ideal setting to escape fast-paced everyday living and relax, recharge, and reconnect with each other. The interior is decorated in an English Cottage decor. There are six suites with hardwood, brick, and tile floors, pickled white wood ceilings, skylights, columns, extra wide trim, fireplaces, private sitting areas, knotty alder beams and cabinetry, upscale furnishings, artwork, oversized beds, a Jacuzzi, and much more. Outside, guests will find a covered porch with rocking chairs and a nice stone patio with a large outdoor fireplace tucked into the landscaping nearby. The patio has cushioned wicker furniture, tables with umbrellas, and wrought iron chairs and benches. Firewood is complimentary. Many guests enjoy walking along the winding lane and exploring the stream. At dusk, when the birds finish their singing, TimberCreek is transformed into a country planetarium as the moon rises over the meadow and the stars appear in the sky. If you happen to be from the city, it's simply amazing!! At daybreak, deer may be found in the meadow and wild turkeys will most likely be close by. TimberCreek is one of the most peaceful places you will ever discover. Our lovely hostess, Connie Bahler, spoils all her guests with special attention and sweet compassion. If you have never tried a Bed & Breakfast, TimberCreek is a very good place to start.

We came for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The only regret I have, is not having come to stay sooner! The setting and decor are just perfect! You can not beat the service and atmosphere. We plan on coming back every year for our Anniversary!

Excellent girl's getaway

A wonderful overnight experience. We loved it from the first time we drove up the winding drive. Connie was so welcoming and tended to our every desire. The beds were wonderful, but the sheer beauty of the place made our time away a true paradise close to home. Highly recommend the experience to anyone, and we hope to be back again.

Great Bed and Breakfast

We went here for our 10th wedding anniversary. You can't do any better for a Bed and Breakfast than here. Everything is top rate: the hospitality, the food, the place itself.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend to get away even though we live close by. The atmosphere was peaceful, rooms clean and food was wonderful. The innkeeper Connie was so nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone including friends and family!

We were invited to a wedding at Timber Creek and planned to stay one night.It was so restful we decided to spend 3 days at TC.We really enjoyed walking the grounds , relaxing. A great place to get away from it all. Connie, the resident hostess, made our stay special. We hope to come back the next time we are in east /central Illinois. The Popes

This place was beautiful! Quaint, quiet, beautifully decorated, friendly, relaxing. I just can't say enough about it. 25 acres of grounds to walk on which we didn't have time to enjoy cause of weather and other plans but i will definitely go back. Great place to enjoy with a spouse or close friends! Can't wait to come back!!
