It’s Almost Game Time….

It’s coming. All of the pre-signs are evident; the air is beginning to get a little chilly (not quite crispy yet but it is noticeable), a tree, here or there, is getting a little antsy and turning a few leaves orange and red, kids are stuffing their backpacks and of course, pre-season football is upon us! Yes, my friends, fall is right around the corner. As I have been telling you now for several falls, this is my all-time favorite season at Deep Creek Lake! The mountain side just lights up in a blaze of vibrant hues, the lake takes on a sparkly blue, and the festivals are many! We here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales love any chance we can to celebrate, so what better way than offering huge fall savings on a September stay in our premiere Deep Creek home known as Celebrations at Deep Creek. This immaculate 8 bedroom lakefront home has everything you and your family could want for a true dream vacation. With 3 levels of living space, there is more than ample room for everyone to spread out and engage in their favorite activity. Let the adults gather in the beautiful Great Room which showcases cathedral ceilings, a massive stone fireplace and large floor to ceiling windows. The kids can choose either play foosball in the lower level Family Room or billiards in the loft. For those that just want to kick back, breathe, and take it easy, they may enjoy taking a soak in one of the jetted tub, relaxing in the sauna, easing sore muscles in the outdoor bubbling hot tub or just enjoying a cup of tea on the wraparound deck as you enjoy breathtaking lake views.
And let us not forget the Pièce de résistance, the private indoor swimming pool (one of the largest in a vacation home in Deep Creek Lake!) Colorful murals give this pool area extra character along with the brightly hues Adirondacks that line the room. Raining outside? Who Cares? Imagine spending endless hours of fun splashing and playing without leaving the home? Swimming in the lake is certainly still an option. Your community dock slip is just steps away. Bring a boat or rent one locally and keep it at the home so that you can come and go as you please! Okay, so now that we have sold you on the idea, how about throwing in an incredible, can’t pass up kind of deal? Rent any 2 nights now in September and get the 3rd night free plus a 20% discount off any available dates. Yes, we are serious and you did read correctly. Give us a call here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com) and let us help you create that dream vacation for you!
 
 For those that are not yet ready to give up on summer, days are still beautiful and warm, and lake is calling. We are now offering 3 nights for the price of 2 for Labor Day weekend, so call now! We can’t wait to see you at the lake!

Go Team USA!

My job has many perks and today was a perfect example of that! When I was told that I was going to interview the Olympic C-1 Slalom paddler that Taylor-Made is sponsoring for the Deep Creek 2014 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships, I was excited! How often do we have someone from Team USA walk through our front door? Casey Eichfeld is a 23 year old young man who has been canoeing for as long as he can remember and actually began slalom racing at the age of 5. He is currently ranked as the top C1 paddler in the United States. He hails originally from Pennsylvania, has impeccable manners, and you can tell that he generally loves what he does for a living. When he isn’t spending time training for events, he uses his time to teach and coach group and private clients around Charlotte, NC where he currently resides.
He is a world traveler visiting many different cities and actually just came back from Prague where he came away as National Champion of the C-1 Slalom race! He is a 2 time Olympian and we @ Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations are proud and excited to be sponsoring him and helping me to obtain his dream!
Interesting facts about Casey (I give credit to the off the wall ones to Chad who thought my questions were to “ordinary”):

·        Casey trains on average 20 hours a week which includes time in the water and in the gym.

·        In Sports Illustrated for Kids September 2000 edition, Casey was listed as a future “Olympic Hotshot”

·        Once in Beijing, Casey had the chance to eat a scorpion on a stick. He declined.

·        Casey paddled whitewater from the time he was 2 years old

·        Casey took dance lessons for 7 years to help with balance and flexibility for his back

Best of luck to you Casey! You truly are a remarkable person and we look forward to watching you thrive!

Festival Fun!

Autumn Glory Parade
Springs Folk Festival!
If you are joining us here at Deep Creek Lake sometime in the next week or two, I would suggest that you bring a sweater as the temperatures at night are beginning to cool down. Perfect bonfire weather if you ask me! There are some exciting events happening around the lake in the next month so now is the perfect time to plan a fall retreat.
The weekend of October 3rd is the annual Springs Folk Festival held in Springs, Pa, which is just a mere 30 minutes from Deep Creek Lake. This festival is a celebration of the arts, skills, and labors of their forefathers. Guests will be able to wander around the grounds and observe the women weaving and baking bread while the men replicate the days of threshing grain and hewing logs. Continuing performances of blue grass and gospel music can also be enjoyed throughout the weekend. Visitors will also have the chance to view the wares of over 140 artisans who will be showcasing paintings, baskets, wood carved furniture, quilts and more. Find you inner-kid again and enjoy the fresh made lollipops, kettle corn, and homemade ice cream. Authentic Dutch style food can also be tasted with sausage meals, pancakes, bean soup and fresh baked bread. If you are looking for something unique but fun and family-oriented, make the short drive to check it out!

The beauty of Deep Creek in the fall!
Speaking of festivals, it’s hard to believe but our Autumn Glory Festival is just around the corner coming up from October 10-13. Aside from the big Autumn Glory Parade, there is also the Fireman’s Parade, the Band & Color Guard competition, car shows and craft and antiques shows just to name a few. It’s one of the best times to visit Garrett County. If that doesn’t convince you, then simply come and enjoy the breathtaking fall foliage that takes over our area at that time of year! Call us at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations and let us help you find the perfect home for your Deep Creek stay (1-866-351-1119 or online www.deepcreekvacations.com). Can’t make it that weekend?
