Mountain Fresh Farmers Market

Mountain Fresh Farmers Market is one of my favorite things about summer in Garrett County. Vegetables, fruit, locally raised meat, farm fresh eggs, honey and pottery are just a few of the items you can pick up. Also, my kids love it too! They enjoy helping to choose the different, brightly colored veggies to take home. It is truly a highlight of life in Western Maryland.

Deep Creek Dunk Weekend Activities
Deep Creek Dunk fun!

Deep Creek Dunk Weekend Activities. There are 5 days until Deep Creek Lake celebrates our famous Deep Creek Dunk at The Honi Bar beside Uno Chicago Grill. Temps this week are going to rival spring, peaking at 65 on Friday. Speaking with our real estate manager this morning, we are not sure if it’s going to be easier/warmer for the dunkers or if it’s going to seem colder because of warm air temps. Regardless of the temperature, the event itself is the star and is always pure fun for event participants as well as onlookers whose numbers are in the thousands. Crazy costumes and cold water are all in good fun but raising money and awareness for the Special Olympics is the real reason for this wonderful event.

Deep Creek Dunk Weekend Activities

The Dunk may be the star but there are plenty of first class activities that piggy back on this popular weekend. Goose Bumps and Grapes which is presented by Uno’s bar and Grill, The Honi Bar, Arrowhead Market and Co-hosted by Taylor-Made Vacations and Sales on Friday, February 24 between 6pm-9pm. For a $20 cover, you can sample delicious wines around a roaring fire with Honi’s House Band rocking the crowd starting at 9pm.

 Do you know the  Dock Removal Deadline here at Deep Creek Lake? The great dock removal exodus has begun over the last month here at Deep Creek Lake. The water level has been dropped for the final time and most remaining docks are high and dry on the shores of the lake. You can hear the kaa-chink of crews who are working at a blazing pace trying to remove the docks before the end of the month.  Remember the docks have to be removed before December 1st each year.

Here’s a link of the subject for your information. LINK03 Uses Permitted with a Buffer Strip Use Permit. G.

The Autumn Glory Festival 2016 Deep Creek Lake

The Autumn Glory Festival 2016 Deep Creek Lake. There are a few towns in this wonderful country we live that have a unique and special way about them when it comes to the Autumn/Fall season. Downtown Oakland, Maryland, which is just a hair outside of Deep Creek Lake, blooms like a rare and cherished flower around the Autumn season. They boast the famous Autumn Glory Festival, which goes on for five wonderful days as we peak in the fall season. The many fun events that are hosted by this popular festival are as special as the breathtaking fall foliage itself.

 

Here are some of the events that were a huge hit this year: Antique Show, Autumn Glory Kick-Off Reception & Dinner, Autumn Glory Sale at Simon Pearce, Banjo & Mandolin Championship, Bear Creek Traders Autumn Glory Tent Sale, Bingo, Classic Car Show, Corn Maze, Craft Shows, Live Downtown Entertainment, Downtown Farmers Market,  Fiddle Championship, Fireman’s Parade, Grand Feature Parade, Historic Mt. Lake Park Tours, Horseback Trail Rides, Ice Cream Eating Contest, Oktoberfest Dinner, Great Pumpkin Race & Festival, Ski & Snowboard Swap, Southern Girls Basketball Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser, Tournament of Bands, Woodlake Tree Farm Autumn Glory Sale.

 

Locals love the Oompah night during the Fireman’s Parade which was standing room only this year with the addition of the local band Boathouse after the Oompah band finished up. My little boys loved watching the many firetrucks come during the popular night time parade.

 

The Autumn Glory parade itself is definitely the star of this 5-day event. Some folks have been going since they were little children. This year the weather was perfect in the upper 60’s/lower 70’s and the leaves looked spectacular looking down this Mayberry-resembling town. The participation is always impressive and the streets were lined with adults and children ready to enjoy a wonderful day together. How can you not love clowns, Shriners, tractors, beauty queens, floats, Scottish bagpipes, cheerleaders, marching bands, horses, firetrucks, antique hotrods, mountaineers in coonskin caps, political delegate’s and Maryland’s Governor??

 

Did I mention that Travel & Leisure ranked Oakland Maryland #2 America’s Best Towns for Fall Colors? Nuff said… Check it out.

October Fall Foliage Gallery Deep Creek Lake. Here are some fall photos that I have taken over the last few days. The weather has been pleasant in the high 60’s and lower 70’s over the last few days. Friday we will see a drop into the mid 50’s. What a fine October it has been here at Deep Creek Lake. We are inching past the fall foliage peak here so be sure and pay us a visit here soon before winter plays her hand.

“In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
the grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all,
Flowers in the summer
Fires in the fall!

–   Robert Louis Stevenson, Autumn Fires

Early October 2016 Deep Creek Lake

 

Here we are, early October and the weather could not be more perfect. The temperatures are stabilizing in the lower 60’s during the days and upper 40’s at night. The lake has a cooler, relaxing vibe this time of year and you find a few folks spending a little time on the lake enjoying the quietness.  The leaves are starting their transformation here as the maple’s start to show peeks of their stunning beauty. Life here in the Fall gears down and life seems to get a little simpler as we tentatively tip toe toward winter. The sweatshirts seem cozier and the hot chocolate taste’s more delicious as the mild humidity of summer vanishes, unmissed.  We look ahead to The Autumn Glory Festival and Halloween which makes letting summer go a little bit easier. Breakdown each season of your life and make them the best ever. Deep Creek Lake gives you the opportunity and backdrop to make special memories that are sure to be tattooed deep in your mind. Come visit us here at the lake and let your worries disappear and your senses come alive.  Be one with this diamond in the rough jewel called Deep Creek Lake that we are so lucky to have here in Maryland

Throughout the last couple of years as the focus shifts to the upcoming fall foliage season, I have found the most spectacular and soothing way to experience this sought after season via paddleboard. The visitors have slimmed down to next to nothing and the lake shifts from being a physical playground for activities to a visual backdrop for nature’s art. The season also brings calm days mixed in with traditional windy fall days. It is on these calm days that you can witness a spectacular visual ever-lasting gumdrop of emotions that will take you from pure elation to a centered mental calm. It is experiences like these that elevate the lake to spiritual status.

To see the mountains gleaming with fire and glowing with rich hues of the fall season is only magnified when you see a double image reflection mirroring off the lake. These powerful reflections bring the water alive as they transform into a three-dimensional bouquet of seasonal colors. The paddleboard becomes your soul mobile as Deep Creek Lake takes you down a peaceful highway that will recharge your faith in nature. Each quiet dip of the paddle propels you across an amazing and colorful glass-lake, virgin of ripples. The horizon slowly inches toward you like an out-of-reach oasis which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the dreamy conveyor belt that only a few have experienced.

Our nationally respected and loved Fall spectacle is an event here at the lake that a lot of folks have been lucky enough to experience year after year. This year I encourage and challenge you to try it from a different cockpit vantage point. The end of summer does not mean the end of paddleboarding or enjoying an intimate relationship with the lake. Set sail this autumn with your favorite non-powered watercraft and experience the hallowed ground at Deep Creek Lake that is worshiped by only a handful.
