Falling for Fall @ Deep Creek Lake!


Autumn is positively my favorite season in Garrett County. The mixture of crisp fall air with the bright orange, yellow, and red hues that sprinkle the mountain top never ceases to amaze me! We so often get asked by visitors if there is anything to do in the area at this time of year and of course, the answer is emphatically YES! My all-time recommendation to everyone, locals and visitors alike, is to take a day and head to Swallow Falls State Park. Not only will the beauty of Muddy Creek Falls revive your spirit but after Labor Day, it becomes a fabulous place to take the dog for an afternoon hike (leashed of course!) Looking for something “kid friendly”? Then I highly recommend that you check out Cove Run Farms Corn Maze! For an extremely reasonable rate, you can take the kids and check out the maze and the petting zoo. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day out of it! For those that seek a little more adventure, Wisp Resort is once again offering the haunted shack/ mountain coaster ride! Nothing like getting your scary Halloween groove on than a good old fashioned haunted house. Put yourself on a mountain coaster at the same time and a guaranteed “frightening” good time is sure to be had by all!! For those that just aren’t quite ready to accept that Summer is coming to an end, it’s not too late to enjoy a peaceful boat ride around the lake. Stop by one of the local marinas to see what kind of deals they may be offering! Be sure to call today to speak to a reservationist about booking your perfect home for your Fall getaway. We are running some terrific specials right now! See you at the lake!

Fabulous Feast or Devine Sweet Treat? Why Choose? Have Both!


We are always super excited when a new business comes to our area, but there is something about a new place to dine, that really gets us stoked! Throw in the fact that it’s reasonably priced, fast, the food is fresh and delicious, and is within walking distance to our office, and well, it’s easy to see that we are big fans. Gourmet to Go came to Deep Creek Lake in December and from their open house on, we were hooked. Autumn Newcomb-Shay and Terry Fram took their culinary talents to a whole new level and wanted to bring fresh gourmet style meals to the dinner table. Their menu is quite vast and extends from “build your own” sandwiches with all fresh produce, comforting warm and delectable soups, to entrees that provide your family with a full healthy meal.
Not quite satisfied with stopping there, Autumn and Terry bought the chocolate shop next door and opened up the shop to offer sweets (think a bevy of yummy chocolate!), wonderful aromatic coffees, and even breakfast. They added a touch of color to our outside walk by adding some tables and umbrellas. Many of our renters have ranted about how much they love the food and the luxury of dining outside in the fresh mountain air. These gals seem almost unstoppable as they are now conquering the catering world with their wonderful variety of food. So, the next time you are in the area, I highly recommend checking out their full menu. It is perfect for the couple that wants to grab a quick bite before they hit the lake or for the local mom who is running crazy from sporting practices but still wants to give the kids something more substantial than any old take out. The food is divine, the customer service is always pleasant, and the chocolate…well, how can you go wrong with chocolate. Still lots of gorgeous days to be spent here in the mountains, so see you at the lake!
