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.
A couple events coming up to mention…
The Garrett County Health Fair will be held this Saturday, April 12th at the CARC (Community Aquatic & Recreational Center) on the Garrett College campus. The event will be held from 8:30-1:00 and along with health vendors there will be speaking presentations, free preventive health screenings, information displays and demonstrations and a food distribution by the Maryland Food Bank. Admission is free to the community!
An Easter Egg Hunt is being held Saturday, April 19th from 10:00-12:00 at the Spruce Forest Artisan Village in Grantsville right beside the infamous country Penn Alps restaurant. Registration is at 10:00 and the egg hunt begins at 10:30. There are three age categories with over 1000 filled eggs to find. This is also a free event!
Below are statistics from our MLS system from the activity that took place in our market in March 2014. The indicators are looking up, setting the stage for a great year in real estate.
We have been busy working with owners and getting their homes on the market for the summer season. The link below will take you to 6 of our new listings, ranging from a cozy log home in the woods, a lake access home with a dock slip, a beautiful waterfront contemporary home to a slope front & water view lodge that will woo you! Be sure to click through the photos and visual tours of each and if you’d like to arrange a time to preview any homes now is a good time to do it. http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=57020431609
Have a delightful weekend and we look forward to seeing you in the mountains!
