Saying So Long to Summer! Make the last days count!

The local kids in our area recently returned to school this week along with many other counties here in Western Maryland. Seems too early for school but at least we have another weekend to squeeze in some summer fun before Labor Day arrives. If you are visiting our area for the week, don’t forget to stop by the Farmer’s Market in downtown Oakland on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am – 1pm. So many great choices of fresh fruits, veggies, baked goods and more. Because every vendor doesn’t come every week (although most do), you always get a variety of different tables. There was a vendor from Pennsylvania there on Wednesday that was pedaling some stunning pottery pieces. Candles, handmade carved wooden crafts, quilts, and list goes on. It’s also a great chance to check out some of the neat shops in Oakland like the Book Market & Antique Mezzanine which offers everything from the latest best sellers to a large selection of kid’s books and toys. The back of the store showcases some amazing antiques for sell. Definitely a neat store and worth the stop! It’s a perfect time to capture some of the charm of our small town flair.

If you haven’t made your plans for Labor Day yet, I suggest that you call now as our availability is starting to become limited. It’s one last chance to make unforgettable summer memories and I can think of no place better to do this than here at Deep Creek Lake. Imagine you and your family spending the weekend boating and water tubing on the water. Rent a jet ski for an early morning romp around the McHenry cove or maybe a relaxing kayak trip is just what you need. FJetSkior the outdoor adventurers, hiking and mountain biking are great options especially if you head to one of the many state parks in the area. Swallow Falls State Park showcases the largest free fall standing waterfall in the state of Maryland and is absolutely breathtaking to see. Wisp Resort offers a bevy of fun activities whether you choose to zip line down the mountain, ride the mountain coaster, play a friendly game of disc golf, and so much more. Only 3 ½ hours from the Washington D.C. / Baltimore area and 2 ½ from Pittsburgh, it’s a relatively short drive. Give us a call today (1-866-351-1119 or go online www.deepcreekvacations.com ) and let us help you find the perfect vacation home for your next Deep Creek stay. Lakefront homes are going fast so make sure you call today! We can’t wait to see you at the lake!

 

On Top of The World

The Garrett County Agricultural Fair has once again come and gone which always seems to symbolically be a sign that summer is coming to an end and the kids will be heading back to school (I suspect that some parents may be looking forward to this.) While it is always sad to see summer ending, it also brings the promises of all of the wonders and joys of fall. Leaves changing, festivals, fall sports, and the list goes on! Not to mention that to see Deep Creek and our mountainous region in a blaze of red, yellow, and gold is absolutely breathtaking. Many of our homes offer stunning lake and mountain views and we look forward to capturing numerous pictures from their decks each year!
Speaking of a home with an extraordinary view and one that is new our vacation rental market, On Top of the World, will simply stop you in your tracks. Taylor-Made employees were honored and thrilled to be invited to a luncheon yesterday hosted by the homeowners, Ray & Diana. Held at their home, this was the first time many of our employees had visited the home and there was not one person who did not “Ooh and Aahh over the sheer grandeur of this magnificent mountain home. Large, expansive windows provide you with one of the most panoramic views of Deep Creek Lake including that of the Glendale Bridge (which looks amazing lit up at night). Luxurious furnishings and décor flow throughout the home including lavish bedding throughout the bedrooms. You will truly feel like you are living like royalty when you stay here. The gourmet kitchen truly looks like something out of Pinterest or a magazine. Additional amenities outside include a fire pit, a gazebo, and a huge hot tub which lights up at night as well! Absolutely amazing! To Ray & Diana, we thank you so much for your kind generosity. The food was delicious (everything from the pasta to the salad to the cookies was divine!) and your company was delightful. Quite simply, we love your home! We are excited to give our guests the chance to experience Deep Creek in a truly premiere home such as On Top of the World!
Labor Day will be here before you know it and our homes are booking quickly. We are now offering 3 nights for the price of 2 so call today! We can’t wait to see you at the lake!
