Greetings from Deep Creek Lake,

Mother Nature graced us with a beautiful weekend that was perfect for Griffin’s first Easter egg hunt.  Hunting them was mildly entertaining to him but throwing them was much more thrilling!  Hope you were able to enjoy the warm weekend with your family.

Start Scheduling Your Summer Home Maintenance Projects

This time of year is when our minds tend to shift toward cleaning up our yards, garages and vehicles.  To get started, begin compiling a list of projects to get your home ready for the new season. Consult the checklist to keep projects organized and on schedule.

Clean your outdoor cooker – Make sure to get ready for all of those upcoming BBQs you will be having in the summer months by deep cleaning your grill.
To clean a gas grill: Turn up the heat to high with the lid closed for about 30 minutes. Once the grill has cooled down, use a grill brush to clean the grill.
To clean a charcoal grill: Empty the grill completely, cleaning off any leftover ashy residue with dish soap and warm water. Allow enough time for the grill to dry before you use it next.

Plan a watering schedule – Planning a watering schedule will ensure that your plants will stay healthy and hydrated during the hot summer months.

Trim tree limbs touching or near roof surface – Summer months can mean stormy weather. By performing regular tree maintenance you can reduce the risk of storm damage.

Vacuum upholstery and pillows – After getting the patio furniture out of storage, vacuum the upholstery to remove dirt and dust.

Clean out rain gutters and storm drains – Removing debris from gutters and storm drains can prevent clogging during storms.

Change out the HVAC filter – Put in a fresh filter at the start of the season to prevent indoor air pollution.

Wash all windows – Since the temperatures are up, this is a great time to get out and clean your windows.

Have your roof inspected – Have your roof inspected for leaks every 3-4 years or more often as it ages.

Clean out dryer vents – This is the perfect time to check your dryer vents to prevent build up.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake,

Warm weather has set in (we hope:-)) here in Deep Creek.  We’ve had some nice days recently, helping us locals shake off the cabin fever.  The local marinas are on the move – putting docks in the water and servicing boats for the 2014 summer season.  This photo was taken from my office window on April 2nd.  There was actually still some ice on the water in a few places.  It also happens to be my husband Bob’s former boat, which is now one of Deep Creek Marina’s service fleet.

One of our favorite local attractions here in Deep Creek is Swallow Falls State Park.  This afternoon was gorgeous and in the 60’s so we took the opportunity to slip away from the office and take our 16-month old son Griffin to see the waterfalls for the first time.  He was in awe of the gorgeous Muddy Creek Falls and enjoyed walking the pine needle trails (as well as picking & throwing sticks of course!).  Remember to bring your walking shoes on your next visit to tour this beautiful park with multiple waterfalls.

The market is picking up speed and there are still some true bargains out there, depending on the segment of the market you are looking of course.  To use the word “deals” or “bargains” sounds so cliché but those are the simplest, most descriptive words that come to mind when I see some of the prices on these properties.

We had a $200K price reduction on one of our lakefront homes last week!  This home sits on an incredible lot on a private part of the lake (North Glade Cove) with extraordinary decking, an outdoor grilling kitchen and a lower level entertainment room.

We also just listed an incredible lodge-style waterfront gem and a lake access home site with a dock slip.

  • The Thousand Acres lodge sits on 3.81 acres with 373’ of lakefront!  This property consists of the original lodge home, a massive addition to the home, a new guest house and a detached garage.  Plus, it offers multiple flat stone patios overlooking the water, a campfire area, playground and lots of privacy!
  • The home site is in a well-established community known as The Pinnacle near the Glendale Bridge.  It offers a deeded dock slip, 1-acre of buildable space, a community tennis court, community lakeside clubhouse and seasonal views of the lake.
