The shop was designed so that visitors could observe the cheese making process through the large windows. They have plans in the near future for visitors to be able to actually take tours of the facility and to hear an in depth description of the cheese making process. Although you are now able to sample the cheeses and some jams, in the future they will also be doing some wine tasting at the shop as well. While in the shop, although you cannot miss it, please take time to check out the gorgeous mural on the wall that was painted and designed by renowned local artist, Mark Stutzman (most famous for his rendition of a young Elvis Presley on the US postage stamp.) It adds a wonderful serene ambience to the already quaint looking shop.
I highly recommend that the next time you are coming to the lake that you stop into the shop and check it out. Located on Main Street, it is impossible to miss. Say hello to Andrea, sample some cheese & crackers, and check out their assortment of other delicious appetizers. It is definitely worth the trip. Until next week, we can’t wait to see you at the lake!
Deep Creek is abuzz with the news that the Adventure Sport’s Center International (ASCI) will host the2014 Canoe Slalom World Championships. Competing with entries from Vienna, Austria and Krakow, Poland, Deep Creek was chosen as the location by the International Canoe Federation in Paris.
This is especially close to our hearts because the 2014 event falls on the 25th anniversary of the 1989 World championships that were held at Garrett County’s Savage River. It also represents the return of world championship whitewater canoe and kayak racing to the United States for the first time since 1989.
If you haven’t been to ASCI’s mountaintop whitewater course (the only one in the world!) it’s a must see for any visit to Deep Creek. They kick off their 2011 season on May 14 with guided rafting tours, as well as rock climbing, rapelling, mountain biking and more.
Congratulations to everyone at ASCI!
