Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Deep Creek Dunk 2014-Wisp. Mother Nature is granting us a much deserved reprieve from the snow over the next few days, which will make for a warm and comfortable (for the spectators, that is:-)) Deep Creek Dunk this Saturday. Temps are estimated to be in the mid-40’s. Shed those layers; here comes the heat wave!
Many kind-hearted folks commit to raise money and “do the dunk” each year and our manager, Bob Carney, is one of them. We will be there to cheer him on as well as many other friends that will be dunking this year. The pre-party begins at the Honi-Honi at noon and the after party flows to the The Black Bear Tavern in McHenry with the ever-so entertaining band the Davisson Brothers from 5:00-8:00.
In other news at DCL, Wisp has been constructing a Yurt Village over the last few months consisting of eight yurt structures. The new area will be used as the beginner ski & snowboard area in the winter and in the summer they will be used for golf operations, dining outlet and group meeting space. Wisp opened there new retail store, Outdoor Elements, this season with locations at the base lodge and in the White Water Lodge atop Wisp Mountain.
There is also a new Italian deli, Telli’s Deli, coming to the area in The Fort plaza right beside Deep Creek Sweets. I haven’t seen a menu yet but it’s always nice to have another dining option. And, if you haven’t tried Ace’s Run located at Will ‘O the Wisp then give it a try. They have a unique menu – from shepherd’s pie to angus beef burgers.
There have been some price adjustments on some properties here at the lake: http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=56137737641. We can expect that inventory will pick up over the next few months as we head into spring/summer. There are always some vacation rental specials in March, April & May and it’s typically easier to get into properties for sale since the rentals are not back-to-back. Let us know if a trip to Deep Creek is in your forecast. Enjoy the rest of your week!
