As the blood moon eclipse passes us here under the blanket of clouds, last night we moved even closer to the fall season. Things here at the lake have settled down after the wonderful summer. The upcoming month is a great opportunity to hike and enjoy the cooler weather and the famous fall foliage.
Just a friendly reminder that we are very close to some truly farm fresh foods, a lot of them being organic. Break out the water baths and pressure canners and put away some of your own fresh foods. There is nothing better than popping open a jar of green beans, bird egg shell beans, tomatoes or an assortment of pickled veggies and sweet jams during the upcoming year. If you’re in town go check out the farmers market in Oakland for some fall food favorites. Bob and I spent some time and put enough of our favorite veggies up to get us through for a long time. It’s hard work but the end result is very healthy and satisfying.
Autumn Glory weekend is coming up here, October 7-11, for those of you that will be around. This small town festival is the backbone to our existence here in the United States. The parade is always a highlight for the children and adults alike. Here is Bob and our niece at last year’s parade, and my son Griffin’s 2nd parade.
Our featured listings for the month are: a lakefront home with lovely finishes and tons of space just reduced to $799,000; a slopeside 3-level townhome in Villages of Wisp reduced to $199,000; a brand new Mountaineer Log Home with 5-bedrooms/3.5 baths reduced to $379,000; a cabin in the woods on 2.35 acres very close to the lake and Swallow Falls reduced to $189,500; a 5-bedroom contemporary home furnished with a dock slip and seasonal lake views reduced to $475,000; a completely remodeled 3-bedroom home outside of Oakland reduced to $159,900; a new listing in Accident offering 3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms on 3 town lots for $249,900.
Check out our website for recent news or to search the MLS. Or, we can do the work for you if you provide us some details about what it is you are looking for in a property in the mountains. Have a great week!
