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!
