Reuniting families since 2008…

Log Mahal
Family Reunions were created as a way to unite families. Unfortunately, due to circumstances we call life (i.e. work, kids, responsibilities) it can be difficult to find a way for all grandparents, parents, siblings, cousins, etc. to find a way to come together. However, we all know how wonderful it is when you do finally reconnect. Siblings share stories of growing up together, cousins bond and grow closer, and parents and grandparents get to enjoy having everyone together again. That is when it’s time to settle on a date and begin planning your reunion. This is where Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations can help. We have given you a myriad of reasons to choose Deep Creek as your vacation spot but just to reiterate; lush greenery, fresh mountain air, a sparkling blue lake and adventure and activities all four seasons! Now imagine your families spending their time together spread out among some of Deep Creek’s most beautiful vacation homes.
Log Hut
Two of our homes that would make excellent choices for a family reunion are Log Mahal and Log Hut. These 2 exceptional log homes share 5 acres of rolling hillside, are tucked away for privacy but are just minutes to your lake access and lake activities. Both homes have been carefully decorated with the finest and most luxurious furnishings and bedding. I am not exaggerating when I say that the “Wow” factor is huge upon walking through the door of both of these homes. Fully stocked kitchens mean the families can share the responsibilities for meal time and then enjoy dining together. The homes also share fun filled outdoor amenities such as a unique playground, tennis and basketball courts, a picnic area and an outdoor fire pit. Don’t forget that huge 5 acres that I mentioned. Bring the badminton net or corn hole and the whole gang will love playing outside. Between the 2 homes, there are 9 bedrooms which gives more than ample room to house several multi-families.

Need help in planning your activities?  We will gladly help by suggesting state parks to visit, places to dine, where to rent a boat, unique landmarks to visit, etc. Our knowledge is vast when it comes to all things Deep Creek and we love to share that info. So, now the idea is planted and the idea of gathering with the family is a must. Text, Twitter, Facebook, call, whatever your method of communication is, get a hold of your kin and pick a date. Now, call us. (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) We can’t wait to see you at the lake!  

A Mountain of Options….

Ben & Brody: Kings of the Ice Throne
Mother Nature decided to take the “Think Snow” idea very seriously as the fluffy whiteness continues to blanket the area. Much colder than normal temperatures have been upon our area as of late; not just us but extending to the whole East coast and Midwest. All we can suggest is to bundle up and stay warm! As we get closer to the month of February, we have a lot of activities to look forward to! The weekend of President’s Day generally gives the population an extra day off, so that is always a reason to get away from the hustle and bustle but that particular weekend is also the 7th Annual Winterfest celebration held in downtown Oakland. If you are a fan of the quaint and charming small town flair then this event is perfect for you. Expert Ice Sculptor, Bill Sandusky, will once again be there tackling the large blocks of ice and turning them into beautiful sculptures. Throughout the town, these ice sculptures will be on display. There will also be vendors, games, live entertainment and various crafters around to keep you entertained. Stop by, grab a cup of hot chocolate, play ice bowling, pose with the sculptures and basically embrace the graciousness that is Oakland.
Wisp has been reporting that skiing conditions have been great lately with all of the fresh powder. Not a skier or a fan of snowboarding? There are so many other choices of activities to do! I personally, am a fan of snow tubing. It’s essentially sled riding except instead of trekking back up the hill yourself, you get pulled up by your tube. A win-win in my opinion! Embrace your inner Yamaguchi and try out the ice skating rink. Creating the perfect winter wonderland ambience, the rink is entwined in twinkly lights and complete with a large outdoor fire pit. Still unsure? There snowmobiling, snow shoe tours, cross country skiing, the list is long and guaranteed to offer something for everyone in your group. Beat the winter blahs with an invigorating and adventurous mountain escape to Deep Creek Lake. Call us (1-866-351-1119 or go online www.deepcreekvacations.com) and Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations will happily assist you in finding that perfect home for you and your guests. We can’t wait to see you at the lake!

I do @ Deep Creek!

 
Amanda @ the TMDCV booth!
 I recently had the privilege of attending Cavanaugh’s Bridal Show held in Pittsburgh with our Event Coordinator, Amanda. I was a definite 1st timer so with that in mind, I had absolutely no idea of what to expect. First impression “Wow!” It was amazing and I know this sounds a little girly, if you may, but it was so pretty. Every detail that you would need to know in order to have a successful wedding, you would find here. How are you going to get to your wedding? Limo, of course. But here comes the interesting part, you now have options of what kind of limo? Certain color? Certain decorations? Music? Throughout the showcase, vendors were set up and ready to show the potential brides all of the different options that they offer. There were many mannequins dressed in bride gowns and bridesmaid’s dresses. On occasion, a Bride model would glide by. So many music options. There were many disc jockeys to choose from (I was little jealous that we weren’t closer to them as they were definitely the “fun group” to be around.) How about a violinist? Bagpipes? The choices seemed endless.                                              
Bridal Puppy!
Candy Buffets are very popular!
We were there, of course, as the “venue”. Why would you choose Deep Creek as your wedding destination? This is a no-brainer to us. Lush gorgeous mountains, a spectacular sparkling lake; clearly Mother Nature went out of her way to bless us. Surprisingly, a lot of people have not heard about Deep Creek so we were happy to tell them about it. The view from my window tells me that the snow is still floating down to the ground outside. Picture now, a winter wonderland wedding. We have that. Is Fall your favorite season? Our mountains pop with vibrant hues of orange, yellows, and reds creating a breathtaking backdrop for your special day. How about lakefront with Deep Creek shining blue and bold behind you? So, yes, we went to try to spread the word about Deep Creek.
In the meantime, we also came home with a plethora of new ideas to provide to our brides. (Did you know that photo booths and candy buffets are very “in” right now in the wedding world?) Amanda made a great deal of new contacts, which adds to list of services and knowledge that she can bring to her brides. All in all, it was a very successful trip and we came home ready to brainstorm.
Again, the snow is still coming down so now would the perfect time to plan a weekend ski getaway. Wisp is going full force so take advantage of the weather and come and play in the mountains. Give us a call @ 1-866-351-1119 or go online www.deepcreekvacations.com and we can assist you in finding the ideal vacation home for you and your guests. We look forward to seeing you at the lake! 

A Land of Fun? How can you resist?

Most of the United States has been getting hit with a cold blast this week although for us here in the mountains, it hasn’t seemed like a drastic change as of yet. Wisp has been taking advantage of the cooler temps and currently have all snow guns fired up as they prepare for the weekend visitors that will be arriving. You don’t have to be a huge fan of the ski slopes to enjoy a visit to our area. Many of our homes offer an abundance of fun amenities. Find a home with a cozy, warm fireplace, a pool or game table, and a large screen TV and you can stay warm while watching the snow dance around outside.
 For the kids in your group, I suggest that you check out Funland which still opens on the weekends in the winter season. The moment that you walk inside, you get the sense of “Fun!” Video games are crying out begging to be played. What’s your favorite? I personally rule at Air Hockey and Skee Ball. Most of the games give you a chance to win tickets which can then be redeemed for some really cool prices such as candy or toys. If you are a frequent visitor to the area, you can cash your coupons in and keep the slip to add to the next time you stop in (this is great for those that want to work towards the big, special prizes!). It’s a very fun and relaxed environment and not so big that you need to worry about the kid’s wandering to far from a parent’s roaming eye. It’s also located right in the heart of McHenry so afterwards, you can stop in at one of the local dining establishments and feed the family. Funland has something to offer everyone in your group, regardless of age so make sure you check them out the next time you are in the area!
As the snow continues to fall, this is a great time to call in and ask about some of the phenomenal discounts and packages we are offering for your next mountain excursion. Call us @ Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations today and let us help you pick the perfect home for you and your friends and family (1-866-351-1119 or go online www.deepcreekvacations.com).  We can’t wait to see you at the lake!
