 The 47th Autumn Glory Festival

 

The 47th Autumn Glory Festival. Fall is slowly passing its peak this year as we move toward Autumn Glory weekend 2014. It has been a spectacular event to behold this year! After all, Oakland, Maryland has been recognized for being #1 in the country for towns with best fall foliage. Not too shabby for a county that also boasts true 4-season lake and mountain living. As we see the leaves peak to their splendid beauty we know that the winter sports season is just a few short months away. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves… The 47th Annual Autumn Glory Festival is approaching this weekend. Check out this link for a list of all the events and be sure to pack up your family and friends and come and see us here this weekend!

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Winter-Veterans Day-Real Estate . There are very few things we can predict in life and weather would certainly be one of those!  Our temperatures here have been rising and plummeting from day to day, which is pretty typical for this time of year.  I know many of us would just as well have snow so that we can enjoy its beauty but we will have to patiently wait for Mother Nature to run its course and bless us with such.  If you haven’t done so already, now is a good time to secure your season pass at Wisp Resort.  You will not want to wait in line to get it once the slopes open!

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Winter-Veterans Day-Real Estate

 

As we transition towards winter, remember that docks have to be out of the water by December 1st and can be returned to the water no earlier than April 1st.  They like to make sure all objects are out of the water before the lake freezes.  Our snowmobiles are begging for a frozen lake this year!  The last few winters, the temperatures haven’t been consistently cold enough for the lake to freeze to the point where I’m comfortable riding the water.  We saw a few brave enthusiasts out there last year but we were not one of them!

 

                        Griffin enjoyed his first office Halloween party, especially due to the fact that Mommy allowed him to taste a few of the homemade dishes.  I’m not sure he was digging the costume, however!  I’ll have to do a better job shopping for one next year.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Winter-Veterans Day-Real Estate

 

Event wise, we are kind of in a lull but there will be some upcoming winter events over the next month that we’ll be sure to tell you about.  There is, however, a Veteran’s Day Parade in Oakland at 10:00 on Monday, November 11th.  This is something I wasn’t even aware but now that I am I’ll have to check it out for myself.  What a great way to honor those who’ve served our country!

 

The Betsy Spiker Holcomb Team’s featured listings for the week are a contemporary home in RedRunHeights, a waterfront home site on Stockslager Road and a Lincoln Lodge on Mayhew Inn   Road:

Weekly updates by Betsy Spiker Holcomb of Taylor-Made Vacations and Sales, Deep Creek Lake. As you already know, I never get tired of singing the praises of Swallow Falls State Park. This weekend we did the loop hike and met some really fun visitors from Baltimore and Northern Virginia. Even after the damaging “Sandy” storm we still see a solid stand of ancient hemlock trees towering over the forest. For some visitors, it was their first glimpse of the awesome aura put off by these majestic trees that stand guard over the powerful Youghiogheny River. We finished our hike, as always, at the calming Tolliver Falls. The water is flowing at a slow and tranquil pace which makes the falls even more calming and was apparent by the group of people entranced by the sights and sounds of this special nook of the park.

Fall golfers…Be advised that the Oakland Country Club is having a late season special until the end of the month. Bring a foursome of golfers and play for $100.00 with a cart Monday-Thursday, $25 a head! Wow, you’d think we are still in the 80’s!

 

New restaurant alert! As you pass through the town of Accident on the way to Deep Creek Lake you will notice a re-opened cafe on the right across from the car dealership called The Moonshadow Café & Bar. The food is all local – from the meats, cheeses and vegetables. With less than a week under its belt, it has become the talk of the town so don’t miss giving it a try next visit. FYI, this Friday is a Halloween Party if you like to play dress up.

 

Speaking of Halloween parties, Deep Creek Lake has THE costume party at the lake!!  Black Bear Tavern and Restaurant has long been the go-to place for the ghouls and goblin lovers as they pull in all the folks from in and out of town who like to get dressed up and dance the night away. If you have a will to be weird and fun, then make a special trip and take on your favorite Halloween character. Tell the owners Laura and Barry Clapsaddle hello.

From the real estate front, the September market numbers are all up versus a year ago, as you will see on the attached report.  We have two featured listings this week.  First, is a quaint home in a lush, garden setting with a large, open main level and a 3-car garage and a Price Reduction http://vt.realbiz360.com/Listing-1032448.html.  Also, we just listed a great lakefront home site on Stockslager Road with 135’ of waterfront and a Type A dock permit http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=54711201519.

 

Now is a great time to look at real estate.  With the fall season winding down and snow on the way (yes, this week!!) fewer of our homes are booked making it easy to show them with a moment’s notice.  Enjoy your week!

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake on Easter Week!!!!

Weekly updates by Betsy Spiker Holcomb of Taylor-Made Vacations and Sales, Deep Creek Lake. Put March 26, 2014 into your phone reminders for next season and I’ll tell you why. I have noticed that this Easter week we are having epic winter wonderland snow/ski conditions and virtually no one here to enjoy them. We have been getting dumped on with snow from a late winter storm that has left many upset about the never ending winter that we are having across the East Coast. I say, take it as it comes! The majorities of people have their minds on golf and the beach this time of the year and often miss the last week here at Wisp Resort. If you were here this weekend you could have pounced on some “West Coast” style powder that lasted most of the day because of the light pressure on the slopes. Check into rental & ticket rates next year around this time and pray for snow! Chances are you’ll score big on some sweet conditions! Check out this photo I got off Wisp’s Facebook page. “Got powder?”

Looking ahead a little when spring and summer start to show their face, consider getting your boat tuned up early before the marinas are swamped with service work. If you are looking for a boat, this is a great time to place your order to ensure getting the boat you want in time for the start of the season. Give Betsy’s brother, Adrian, a call at Deep Creek Marina 301-387-6977 with questions regarding a new or used boat. If you are looking for service, ask for Kim who will be happy to help you.

 

Here’s a little teaser that I took before a morning session with Bets and the boys a few years back.  Bring on summer!
