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-Art and Wine Festival. It’s hard to believe that Labor Day has come and gone.  This also means that some of our ice cream shops will be closing up for the year or going to fall hours.  It was only right that Griffin get one ice cream cone of his own before the season endedJ.  And believe it or not, Jensen has been in the real estate business since day 6 of his life.  He’s a seasoned veteran now, using a smartphone and all, at the ripe ole age of 11 weeks!

 

Boating on the lake after Labor Day can be a real reward for very little traffic and still good water temperatures.  The lakefront restaurants will not pull their docks until after Autumn Glory so there’s plenty of time to dine by boat.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake,

Memorial Day weekend is upon us and it looks like most of the docks and boats are in the water for the season.  Now we just need the skies to clear and make for a perfect weather weekend, which I hear is in store.  No rain in the forecast and mild (but sunny) temps in the low to mid 70’s.  Dust off your paddleboards, kayaks and waterskis and get out on the water for some weekend fun!  And, let’s remember the meaning of this holiday by thanking and remembering those who have served.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Memorial Day Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Memorial Day

The housing outlook from the “economists and experts” is that prices are expected to increase in 2014 by 4.4%.  More than 100 housing panelists participated in a recent quarterly survey to arrive at this prediction for home values.

Having lived here my entire life, even I forget some of the wonderful activities and options we have here.  Did you realize we have 6 State Parks in Garrett County?  This is more than any other county in Maryland.  Taken straight from the Maryland.gov website, there are details and links to each of our parks below.

Mountain bike paths, swimming areas, and boat launches and rentals are available at Deep Creek, Herrington Manor and New Germany State Parks.

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.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Swallow Falls-March real estate

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 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.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Fresh Snow-HART Animal Center. Happy Monday!  We woke up to about 4-6” of fresh snow this morning.  Just enough to freshen up the slopes and remind us that we still have another few weeks of ole man winter.  March 30th is the last day for skiing/boarding this 13/14 season.  For some enthusiasts, early spring is their favorite time of the winter season; the lines are short and the conditions are still good, plus there’s a chance you could be skiing in a lot less clothing!

I know one doggie who turns 6 tomorrow that will certainly miss the snow:).  Mali is such a winter dog!

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Fresh Snow-HART Animal Center Greetings from Deep Creek

All this dog talk leads me to some great local news…  The Bredel Veterinary Clinic at the Hart Animal Center is now open.  They are located on Bumble Bee Road at Deep Creek Lake near Garrett College.  They are a full-service clinic, offering surgeries, preventive care, “Healthy Start” vaccinations and annual boosters, puppy and kitten packages, annual physical exams, dental care, and treatment of emergencies during clinic hours.  Their other bit of news, which I am pretty excited about, is their Bed ‘n Bark Inn has just opened.  Parents can travel “pet less” all the while knowing that their furry loved ones are in good hands.  They have 25 luxury dog suites, Doggie Doors leading to private patios, Doggie-cams available in several suites, Two to three walk and exercise periods per day, Spacious Cat Condos with three levels, Individual exhaust systems in each Cat Condo, Maid service twice a day, Convenient check-in/check-out hours and Full grooming services available in their salon.  301-387-7729
