Good Deeds & Santa Claus!

Well, it’s official. We are not going to have a white Holiday this year. Since this is clearly not something that anyone can control, I think that we should just embrace it and take advantage of how comfortable it is outside. No need to dress in multiple layers and put on a snow suit just to go to the store. On the serious side though, it is nice that we can still go to the state parks and hike around. People are still jogging down Deep Creek Drive and there are several activities going on at Wisp right now (mountain coaster, canopy tours, Segway tours, and the ice skating rink). Besides if you are a last minute procrastinator and still having shopping to do, it’s much easier to lug your shopping bags from store to car when it’s not 10°. It will snow soon and balance will once again be restored to our mountain life. Nursing Home Donation
Taylor-Made employees once went above and beyond for our Holiday donation this year! Each year we choose a different organization or family in need to shop for! Every department pulls together to get the items on their assigned list. This year we choose to donate to Dennett Road Nursing Home, a local nursing home here in our area. We gathered boxes and bags of everything from crosswords puzzles, body wash, socks, blankets, calendars, CDs, and list goes on. It says a lot about our employees and why we are so proud of them. They give often and always in abundance. The satisfaction for everyone is knowing that we helped give to someone in need at this time of year. So, this is a big Thank You & Shout Out to our Taylor-Made Family!

Did someone say “Holiday Sale”?

 

While we have been teased with some snow dusting, we have not yet experienced a true Garrett County winter storm yet. We are being patient however, and still enjoy being outside in the warmer than normal temperatures.

Earrings, rings, necklaces, watches, so many pretty things. The first thing that will catch your eye though is the big Santa Claus statue that greets you walk in the door.

Thankful & Waiting!

Wisp SnowDecember 1st! Wow. We were so happy to have so many of our guests and homeowners join us over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Of course this is why we are in this industry but we just love the idea of multiple families coming together to stay in our homes. Creating meals together, gathering around the fireplace in the Great Room, challenging each other to a game of pool. Lots of laughter and knowing that you are creating memories to last a life time. Mushy. I know but the holidays can easily hit your sappy, sentimental side. Again, it was nice to see so many familiar faces.

Although the warmer weather has been nice (perfect for hitting the state parks for some mountain hiking and biking), I think that we are all getting a little anxious for some snow! We are now offering a terrific discount for the January 8th weekend! Reserve any participating home for that weekend and we will give you a 15% discount off your stay. Just give us a call at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) and let us help you find your vacation home!  Talk about the perfect holiday to give your family and friends this year!

Wisp-44 Just a reminder that if you are in the area the weekend of December 4th & 5th, The 31st Annual Christmas In the Village will be going on at the Spruce Forest Artisan Village located in Grantsville (an easy 20 minute drive from the lake). If you have never attended, I highly recommend that you take the family and check it out! Fire warmed studios are kept festive by the candle luminaries that entwine throughout the village. You can enjoy live music and choral programs in the Village Church and have a chance to meet and speak to the local artisans who will be on hand peddling their ware. There will also be various kid’s activities, again making this the ideal family event! For more information, check out their website. http://spruceforest.org/
