Art and Wine   If you haven’t already made plans to attend the annual Deep Creek Art & Wine Festival this upcoming weekend (September 11-13th), it’s not to late! Gather the girlfriends or make it a couples retreat & come visit for a weekend full of fun activities.On Friday evening, many of our local dining establishments have planned special wine pairing menus so you can start enjoying the festivities when you arrive. The Wine Festival on Saturday begins at 12 noon and goes to 6 pm while the wine store will continue to stay open until 7 pm. Activities run throughout the day and feature everything from live entertainment, carriage rides, a photo booth and more. Of course there is the reason you came to the festival; the art & wine. Over 30 local artists will be present selling a variety of items like pottery, oil paintings, jewelry, wood carvings and more. Also there will be National Distributors and Maryland wineries there to offer samplings of over 200 different kinds of wine. Definitely something for everyone’s different tastes. The food fare is another great reason to attend. There will be many food artisans there so you can grab a bite while at the festival or choose to take some home with you like Firefly Farms amazing goat cheese or fresh produce and products from Deberry’s Farm. The very best part of the festival? The proceeds go to HART which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless pets in Garrett County. A huge win-win for everyone!

It’s hard to believe that we are already heading into the end of August. Labor is approaching very quickly and kids are getting ready to head back to school. Fall, my very favorite season, will be here before we know it. There is a lot of fun festivals going on in the area in the next few months so now is the perfect time to look into reserving a weekend getaway. Our Art & Wine Festival is coming up on the weekend of September 6thand Autumn Glory extends over the long weekend of October 10-13th. Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations is more than ready to help you find the ideal home for you and your family. Give us a call (1-866-351-1115 or go online www.deepcreekvacations.com)!

Memories are made here!
Now, I realize that my opinion is completely biased but I think life in our mountains provides us with some of the most breathtaking scenery throughout the year. Aside from the natural beauty of Deep Creek and the surrounding lush mountains, we also have Swallow Falls State Park, which houses the largest waterfall in the state of Maryland. It’s highly recommended for nature lovers, especially those that enjoy mountain biking and hiking. Another phenomenal place that I like to recommend is one that is a little less known to the general public. Savage River Reservoir is a 360 acre reservoir that was formed by the Savage Dam which impounds the Savage River.  Located in a canyon, the reservoir is surrounded by a plush mountain landscape making it the perfect place for kayaking and canoeing. It is also well known as a sublime place for trout fishing. Add in the fact that you have soaring bald eagles flying high above you and you will be completely in awe. It is well worth to check it out. If you need our assistance, we can suggest an area vendor that does some amazing kayaking tours (www.allearthecotours.com). Labor Day is coming and homes are going quickly! Call today~ we can’t wait to see you at the lake!
