Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-News-Sailing-Events. There are many reasons to love the lake!  One of my favorite past times is watching the sunrise.  And thankfully, our 2 ½ year old son makes that possible at 6:00 each morningJ.  He enjoys it just as much as we do and chatters away with excitement as we watch the sun come up over the mountains and listen to the birds chirp each morning.

Deep Creek has been in the media quite a bit recently.  My hometown was rated one of TripAdvisor’s 30 Rising Vacation Rental Destinations in 2015.  And we were also featured in a Washington Post article “Where to Shop for that Home Away From Home”, where I was interviewed in regard to current buyer trends.

If you’ve ever considered learning to sail, start right here on peaceful Deep Creek Lake.  My husband Bob took the week-long course two summers ago and caught the bug.  His description of his experience is summed up here.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to join so I’m not able to crew but I’m not sure that’s a good idea for a married couple anyway!  Bob had nothing but good things to say about the DCL Sailing School.  Classes book up fast; do not wait to reserve your spot.

Real estate showings are heating up and offers have been coming in on some properties early in the summer season, which is a healthy sign of stability for our market.  Our featured listings this month range from Lakefront, Lake Access and Lake Area Homes & Home Sites – some of which are new to the market and some which have had $10,000-$50,000 price adjustments.  And a few are established rentals generating $60K in annual income.  There’s something for everyone at the lake!  This is a link to our featured listings where you can view photos and visual tours (attachment shows a printable version of the same): http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=63571918628.

There are quite a few activities coming up in the next week’s – Fire on the Mountain, Taste of Garrett, Boat Parade and Maryland Symphony to name a few.  And our local Chamber of Commerce site has an event calendar as well.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake! If these photos do not smell like summer to you then it’s time to get out and enjoy your own slice of paradise here at DCL!  For Mother’s Day, we paddled to Trader’s Coffee House – my request– for a café au lait and protein wrap.  One of my favorite summertime stops by boat or paddleboard.  Griffin enjoyed his first 2015 slice of sweet watermelon just this week and as you can see it made him very happy!  Jensen is experiencing one of his first ice cream cones and is still deciding if the brain freeze is really worth it!

There is a change coming to our county building permit requirements as of July 1.  Although the sprinkler system ordinance has been around for quite a while, Garrett County was able to work around its enforcement until now.  Sprinkler systems will now be required in all new single family dwellings.  If you are planning to build in the next year or so, you can apply for your building permit in June to avoid the sprinkler system requirement.  A building permit is good for one year.  The county will host a seminar on June 3rd from 3:00-5:00 in Room 205 of the Continuing Education Building at Garrett College.  Presentations will be made by two gentlemen in the fire protection industry and the county will also review the permitting and inspection process relating to the installation of residential sprinkler systems.  Anyone is welcome to attend.

The Spiker Team’s Featured Listings are two beautiful waterfront homes, neither of which have ever been rented.  They are both equally pristine and ready to occupy.  Close to the water with nice views and a single dock slip.  For additional info/photos/tour: http://mrislistings.mris.com/DE.asp?ID=63044257276.
