Timber Road begins at "center city" Mt. Gretna, the crossroads where the Post Office, in Mt. Gretna Borough, and the Corner Deli, in South Londonderry Township, face each other diagonally, and eventually takes you to the Timers Restaurant and Dinner Theater. Along the way you pass Gretna's only apartments, spacious one-story buildings coveted by retired Gretna residents on two sides of a large meadow. Farther along is the entrance to the Lake and more contemporary homes. The front lawns almost betray a suburban atmosphere, but most of the homes are set in the dense Gretna forest. Some have a view of "Governor Dick" Hill to the east; other face "Television" Hill to the North.
