Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales is proud and excited to announce the addition to their Real Estate Company; now co-owner Betsy Spiker Holcomb. Betsy, who was born and raised in Garrett County, brings a vast knowledge of Deep Creek Lake & the surrounding areas and an extensive background of Real Estate experience with her. Additionally, Betsy brings her Real Estate Team consisting of Bob Holcomb, Karen Myers, and Karen Doerr along with her. Real Estate Agent, Broker, and co-owner of Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales, Jay Ferguson stated, “I am thrilled to add Betsy & her team to our Taylor-Made family. It’s incredibly rare to add an agent with such an established brand and with such vast experience, let alone their production in our market. Perhaps the most impressive to me is their hands-on involvement in our community and their commitment to excellence.” Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations hit a milestone in 2014 with the expansion of a new Real Estate Division to the company. Acknowledging that a large portion of vacation rental homes were on the real estate market, it seemed only sensible to create a “one stop shop” for both buyers and sellers to handle all of their real estate and property management needs. Today, the Taylor-Made Real Estate Team continues to thrive and the addition of Betsy, Bob, Karen, Karen is a positive attribute for both home buyers and sellers. Jay went on to say, “With their accrued experience of Garrett County and wisdom in all facets of traditional real estate transitions, we already consider them valuable members of Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations,”
I am reflecting on an experience over the holiday season that I thought I would share with you.
So it’s Christmas Day 2015 and I decided to go Paddleboarding on Deep Creek Lake. The mild weather had mostly everyone happy except for the winter sports enthusiasts. As the sunrise warms the mountain skyline, I notice the suns reflection cast over a glassy mirror lake that seems incredibly inviting. The warm week prior to Christmas morning shows no sign of letting up and the calm lake always triggers my mind towards the spiritual solace of a morning paddleboard session. I have an instant conflict in my mind because after all, its wintertime! The air temps seem reasonable however I wonder how cold the lake has become with the fluctuating fall weather. I finish my coffee and decide to test the waters… I certainly have to be the first one ever in the history of Deep Creek lake to ever paddleboard on Christmas Day and I’d be a liar if I didn’t mention that this fuels my excitement!
I get down to the lake and I’m happy to see that the wind is still non-existent. I have tried to explain to people the spiritual feeling you get as you slowly slice through virgin lake glass. Ahead of you is a perfect reflection of the mountains and trees reflecting off the water and behind you are fan layers of a trace wake calmly sent toward the shoreline. The only sound you hear early in the morning is your paddle dipping slowly through the water along with an occasional fish snapping the top of the water and birds far off in the distant. Christmas morning did not disappoint! I did a couple mile spin up and around some beautiful shorelines and didn’t see a soul on the lake throughout my journey.
As we roll into Martin Luther King Weekend the cold weather and snow are filling in and we forget quickly about the warm fall and winter season that is behind us. Take every opportunity that you have to enjoy the lake and surrounding areas which have so much to offer. In any conditions there is a diamond in the rough experience to be had here at Deep Creek Lake.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Market Stats-Events
We’re still catching leaves here at the lake while waiting for our first snow. Not that I’m rushing it along, but once it turns cold it might as well turn white, too! Now is a fine time to bust out the skis or snowboard and have them waxed and tuned for the 2015/16 season. Continue reading Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Market Stats-Events

Casselman River Bridge State Park is a 4-acre parcel located east of Grantsville in Garrett County on U.S. Route 40. It is a popular area for fly fishermen, photographers, and history enthusiasts. When the 80-foot span was erected in 1813, it was the longest single span stone arch bridge in the United States. Skeptics predicted that the bridge would collapse once the supporting timbers were removed – yet the bridge stood, serving as an important link on the National Road from 1813 to 1933. Although the bridge no longer carries vehicular traffic, it is open to pedestrians.
Today the Casselman River Bridge stands as a picturesque relic of Maryland’s early transportation history, and a tribute to those who designed and built the National Road. To the east of the bridge is the “Spruce Forest Artisan Village.” The village’s historic buildings were moved from various locations in Western Maryland and restored on the site. They currently serve as studios for a variety of artists. Adjacent to Spruce Village are the Penn Alps restaurant and gift shop, a historic structure that dates to 1818, and Stanton’s Mill, a working grist mill originally established in 1797.
- Picnicking – Several picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Fishing – the Casselman River is a popular spot for fly-fishing. Please check the current Maryland Fishing Guide for special regulations.
- Restroom – There is a waterless restroom for visitor use.
- Alcohol Policy – Alcohol is not permitted anywhere in Casselman River Bridge State Park.
- Casselman River Bridge State Park is handicapped-accessible, featuring a paved walkway from the parking lot to the bridge, and an accessible picnic site, parking area, and restroom.
