Golf is another fun activity to do if you are visiting us this spring. With numerous golf courses in our area, you certainly have your choice of where to play. For those that are staying in our Waterfront Greens Community, you also get free play of the 3 par community golf course. Plan a couple’s getaway and while half the party spends the day on the greens, the other half can schedule one of our local massage therapists to come to the house and do on-site massage therapy. So whether you are coming for specific event or just to get away, there is definitely something for everyone. Give us a call here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) and we will be more than happy to help you plan your itinerary throughout your stay. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and we can’t wait to see you at the lake!

We will be the first to admit that if you are wanting to go on a true shopping extravaganza (thinking malls and outlets) if you are visiting Deep Creek you may be slightly disappointed. However, if you are looking for truly unique gifts and shops, please stop by! I had the pleasure of visiting School House Earth (http://www.schoolhouseearth.com/) last week and once again reminded of what charming and captivating shop it truly is! With 3 buildings side by side, they are able to offer a tremendous variety of items. Looking for apparel, such as the latest scarves or handbags? They have it. Garden items? Kid’s toys and room decorations? Christmas décor? House signs? Specialty wine openers? Various food condiments? Yes, yes, and still yes. There is definitely something for everyone. Take the kids and let them check out the free petting zoo which houses llamas, goats, and a very friendly yellow lab pup that will kindly greet you! The staff is so warm and friendly and are more than willing to help you find that special gift you seek! I personally fell in love with the gardening section which had a wonderful selection of wreaths and wind chimes. If you are preparing for summer and thinking of sprucing up your garden area, stop here first. School House Earth is a wonderfully unique shop that is truly worth the short drive to check out. Again, don’t forget your camera, the pets are extremely photogenic (I’m pretty sure the goat was actually posing for me!)
Still haven’t made plans for Memorial Day Weekend? Lake life really begins to come alive around that time. Imagine spending the weekend relaxing with friends and family while cruising around the lake on your rented boat? Sounds tempting, doesn’t it? Give us a call, we can help! We can’t wait to see you at the lake!

The Taylor-Made crew just finished up an exciting week by hosting what is the start of several The Big 8 Seminar~ Tomorrow’s Ideas Today. Bringing together eight various companies involved in the vacation rental industry for 2 days of Boot Camp seminars that cover everything from customer service, housekeeping, maintenance, and more. We here at Taylor-Made are firm believers that the best thing we can do for our guests is to stay as educated and current on all things related to our industry. Having the opportunity to network and share ideas with some of the brightest and best in the business is a wonderful chance to do just that. That and it was a lot of fun.
If you really want to get into the feel of spring than April is a perfect month to take the family to The Deep Creek Discovery Center. Not only is there various events held there this month but anytime is a good time to go and learn about the natural wonders of our region. This interpretive environmental center allows children to see various types of birds of our region in The Aviary or view various wildlife such as snakes, reptiles, frogs, toads, and more. Hands on exhibits include touching old fossils and looking under a microscope to check out Deep Creek’s under water ecology. If you are visiting over Easter, take the kids there to see the Easter Bunny. Bring along six hardboiled eggs and let the kids learn how to dye the eggs using all natural ingredients. This event is held on April 19th from 10 am- 1 pm. It’s a great family event so if you’re in the area, check it out!
If you’re in need of a little R & R, now is a great time to visit Deep Creek. The lake is quickly thawing and before you know it you will be spotting the early morning fisherman enjoying the serenity of a Deep Creek morning. Spring is a great time to come and enjoy mountain hiking and biking as well since you get to witness the mountains reawakening. If that doesn’t convince you, it’s also a great time to take advantage of our out of season rates on your vacation home. As always, give us a call here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations (1-866-351-1119 or online @ www.deepcreekvacations.com) and let us know what you are looking for in the perfect home and we will do our best to match your needs.

When the temperatures drop, it’s always good to have a backup plan of ways to stay warm. Mine now has formed into an addiction of caramel lattes from Trader’s Coffee House located here at the lake. Although I’m not actually recommending that caffeine be your fix, I do highly suggest that you stop by and see Brenda and her crew. A very warm and comfy vibe is felt from the minute you step inside and the smell of fresh baked goods is mouthwatering! They have a toasty fireplace which would the perfect place for reading your morning paper while you sip your coffee. They also offer free wireless internet so for those that need to stay connected, they can do so while stuffing their face full of one her yummy muffins or scones. She also serves a variety of other breakfast and lunch items that are definitely worth trying. Don’t know the difference between a latte or a frappe or undecided on which to choose? Ask Brenda’s staff. They are definitely top notch when it comes to customer service and go above and beyond to help. The view from my window is shouting “sunshine & fresh mountain air” and there is a caramel latte waiting. In the meantime, we can’t wait to see you at the lake.
