We offer a wide variety of wedding friendly homes that are ideal to host your big day.  From intimate affairs at a classic mountain lodge to larger gatherings at a luxury chalet, there’s something to meet the taste of every couple.deep creek lake spring weddings

Depending on the size of your group, the ceremony and reception can be held by the water’s edge or on a deck overlooking the lake and mountains. Our event coordinator can guide you through the process of contacting vendors for tent rentals, catering, flowers, and more.  We’ll help you with all of the small details that go into making your day truly memorable.

If you’re looking for Deep Creek Lake vacation rentals to house your group but would like to hold your ceremony elsewhere, we can help with that too.  We assist you with choosing homes that are close together and in the area that you prefer.  Additionally, we can provide you with a list of local churches or other unique venue options like Swallow Falls State Park.

Spring weddings in the mountains of Western Maryland gives you the chance to combine a great getaway with the most important day of your life.  Imagine enjoying Deep Creek Lake activities like boating, hiking, and kayaking with your favorite people as you look forward to the big event.  It’s an opportunity to share time with people that you may not see often enough throughout the year.

Soups On! Who’s Hungry?

Taylor-Made 5th Annual Soup Cook Off
Yesterday was Earth Day. Mother Nature played a little surprise trick on us by decorating our mountain tops with some fresh fluffy snow. Just another part of the adventure of mountain living! Speaking of which, our spring generally comes a little later than most places but the reawakening has started and we are so excited. Buds are forming on trees, the grass is getting darker and brighter, and the wildlife is starting to come out and play! Now is the perfect time to get away for the weekend and come to Deep Creek to play. Our local golf courses are open and Wisp is still running the mountain coaster (a single ride coaster that winds down the mountain and you can control the speed. So much fun and a Must-Try!) Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales is offering some fabulous last minute discounts! Give us a call and let us help you find that perfect vacation home for you and your family (1-800-851-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacatons.com).
Today marks an important day in the Taylor-Made world as we held our 5thAnnual Company Soup Cook Off! This is where we call on all Taylor-Made employees to show off their culinary skills by bringing in their favorite soup in an attempt to win the coveted title of Soup Cook Off Champ! Over the years, we have seen many different soups from Jambalayas, Seafood Bisques, Veggie, Chili, etc. Basically if it can be made in soup form, it was at some point entered into the contest. The one conclusion we come to each year is this: our employees have some mad cooking skills! Each year we pick our “Celebrity Deep Creek Judges” who are responsible for judging each soup and rating them accordingly. They must then get together and judge who the real winner is going to be. Not an easy task for any man, I can assure you of that. This year our grand prize when to Chris R in Reservations for her entry of Creamy Crab Soup. This was followed up with 2nd prize to Rita in Accounting for Potato Bacon & Tied for third, Jason and Heather from Housekeeping/ Laundry with their soup entries of Mexican Tortilla and White Chicken Chili!

It’s also just a fun way to take time away from the usual hustle and bustle of a daily schedule to mix and mingle with coworkers. We love it when all of our departments can take a short time out to get together and enjoy each other’s company. (Throw in yummy food and it’s a win-win for everyone!) A great deal of fun was had by all and a huge thank you to all who participated, both by entering and judging!)

So close to Pittsburgh, Washington D.C. & the surrounding areas, why not just take advantage of some awesome deals, pack up the car, & in just a few short hours spend an amazing weekend resting and relaxing with your favorite people! We can’t wait to see you at the lake! #deepcreeklake #taylormadevacatonrentals #springfling  

Let’s Spring Forward Already!

Swallow Falls State Park
As February crawls to a close, we are officially entering that time of year where the zeal for winter is just about over and need for spring is here. Record snowfalls have been hitting the East Coast for a while now. People are jumping out of windows into snow banks (those crazy Bostonians) and now that all the major winter festivals and holidays are over, it just seems like time to move on. What better way to ward off the winter woes than to plan a spring getaway. Somewhere fun. Somewhere fresh. Somewhere like Deep Creek Lake. If you have not experienced spring in the mountains then I highly recommend that you put this on your Must Do list! Whether you are witnessing the lake beginning to peak out of the ice or the deer & other wildlife venturing out, you will definitely appreciate the beauty of watching the mountains “spring” to life. “Doesn’t seem like there would be anything to do?” We hear this sometimes and can’t wait to tell our guests how wrong they are! J If you enjoy the outdoors, it is the perfect time to walk and hike through our state parks. Always #1 on that list, of course, is Swallow Falls State Park which houses the largest waterfall in the state of Maryland. Muddy Creek Falls is a crashing 53 feet, a breathtaking sight any time of the year. The main trail that winds down around the falls will also lead you to several smaller waterfalls and some insanely gorgeous photo ops! Many of our state parks also have some great mountain biking trails! Looking for something a little more soothing?
Hole in One!
Fore! Golf, anyone? We have several top notch golf courses here in our area and many of our vacation rental homes are within walking distance or just a short drive away adding to the convenience. Always a great escape for a guy’s weekend away! For the ladies, maybe they just want some time to gather and catch up, check out some our wonderful little shops, plan a massage? Many of our vacation homes are specifically designed with a nice open floor space making gathering with friends fun and easy!
Spring Sunrise!
Call us here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) and let us know what type of spring getaway you are planning and we would be more than happy to help.

In the meantime, for those of you that are visiting us this weekend or in the next several days, enjoy the sunshine! The slopes are freshly groomed and currently the weather is calling for warmer temps and lots of Vitamin D over the weekend. We can’t wait to see you at the lake! #deepcreeklake #springfling #weekendgetaway

Anglers Welcome!

Our mountain area is finally beginning to bloom! After being covered in white for the long winter season, the sight of buds on the trees and the grass growing green and plush is rather exciting. I even got giddy over watching some ducks playing in a quiet cove last week. Spring in Deep Creek is one of my favorite times as you almost feel like you just woke up from a nice, rested nap. Anglers are beginning to visit now that docks are going in the water and to take advantage of the quiet stillness of the lake during the Spring season. Fishing is a popular activity on the lake at this time and a good time to go, particularly if you are looking for large and small mouth bass and walleyes. Many mornings on the  commute to work, you will catch sight of those that enjoy the quiet solitude of mornings spent on the lake. If you are planning a fishing getaway, make sure to give us a call here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations (1-866-351-1119 or online @ www.deepcreekvacations.com). We can not only help you find the perfect house for you and your party, we will search extensively to find the one has a dock slip or is located on the part of the lake that is known to be a superior fishing spot. One of our smaller homes, Cross the River, is a gorgeous little two bedroom home that is located right on the shores of the Youghiogheny River, also known as a great river to fish, particularly if you’re fan of trout. Imagine spending your mornings and afternoons casting from your very own dock or from the lake’s shores. 
 For those that have no interest in fishing, now is still a wonderful time to visit for a relaxing weekend in the mountains. Choose to spend the weekend trying out one of our numerous golf courses, go horseback riding at a local stable or head to Wisp for a ride on their mountain coaster. What’s a mountain coaster, you may ask? Basically it is a one to two person (depending on size; think adult and smaller child) coaster that winds down Wisp Mountain. You even control the speed so if you are a big wimp, like me, you can slow it down. The daredevils can go a full 28 miles per hour). It’s extremely fun and a neat thing that you can brag to your friends about! Currently many of our homes are offering 3 nights for the price of 2 through the month of May so take advantage and give us a call. A weekend in the mountains can do wonders! We can’t wait to see you at the lake!
