Meet your Innkeepers
Dee Fegan and her husband Chuck DeMarco opened 30 Timber Road Bed & Breakfast, their Mechanicsburg, PA inn, after 19+ years owning and operating another, larger B&B. That inn included a farm with horses and hosted big events like weddings and receptions. After 19 years they decided that it was time to “right size”. Their current property in Central Pennsylvania actually has more land (14 acres, mostly wooded), but the Williamsburg-styled bed and breakfast has three very large guestrooms providing a more upscale experience for guests.

Chuck loves his Philadelphia sports teams! Fly Eagles, fly!!! When Chuck isn’t mowing the lawn, feeding the birds and wildlife, walking “Nate”, the adopted rescue dog, or taking care of the “critters” (which include outdoor cats), you can find him cheering for the 76ers, the Phillies, the Flyers, or the Eagles. Chuck also does volunteer work for his church.
Chuck and Dee are so pleased to have found this lovely home tucked away in the woods. The design and plans for this home can be found in the Library of Congress because of its colonial styling. The home’s exterior includes real cedar shakes on the roof and random glazed oversized bricks. Inside, there is crown molding on the main floor and wood paneling surrounding the fireplaces. The wood floor is completed with wood pegs.
The colonial-style garden provides an abundance of herbs for breakfast dishes! The garden is a continuing “work-in-progress” with new patterns of vegetable plants and perennial flowers planned for the coming years. There are benches at either end of the garden to provide a resting place where guests can watch for the hummingbirds and butterflies making their way from flower to flower.
