If you are sitting in your office dreaming of enjoying virgin corduroy ski slopes with your family and friends, I have one question for you…why aren’t you here?? After all, this is the time of the year when you can find the slopes with minimal traffic and fantastic conditions. I passed by Wisp Resort today on the way to work and saw two snowboarders on the first runs of Mainstreet throwing up huge rooster tails on the freshly groomed slope.  Passing the lodge area confirmed my thoughts on the “crowds”. They are non-existent during the week days and manageable on the weekend. Normally we see a huge peak of traffic during the Martin Luther King Holiday and then things taper off to a steady through February leading up to the Deep Creek Dunk on 2/25. This is also a great time to look at real estate in between winter sports and making merry. Call Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales to find a last minute vacation rental home or call Betsy Holcomb at 301-616-5022 to sit down and discuss the real estate options here at the lake!

Springtime Weather Update Deep Creek Lake May 19, 2016. As the abundant and looming Springtime rain gives us a reprieve from its fury we start to understand again why Deep Creek Lake is such a special place to so many. On my commute to work this morning it was refreshing to see Blue Skies above me as the fog burned off the lake. You notice instantly all the springtime flowers that have been blanketed by rain over the last few weeks flexing their colors and reaching for the sky. The birds have come alive and are vibrant in their springtime splendor with the warm temperature returning like a welcomed friend.

HART stands for Homeless Animal Rescue Team.

All HART animals receive:

  • Top notch veterinarian care
  • All currently needed vaccinations
  • Specialized treatment and surgeries as needed
  • 24 Pet Watch Microchips
  • Spay / neuter of all animals
  • HART members share the same goal to save, spay / neuter, love, and find them forever homes
  • HART is a 100% volunteer, non-profit 501c3 charity organization with no paid staff of any kind. All donations are tax deductible and will directly benefit the animals.

 

HARTS MISSION

HART’s mission is to improve the lives of animals in Western Maryland by:

  • Rescuing animals and transporting them to areas where they will have a better chance of being adopted.
  • Reducing pet overpopulation through low-cost spaying and neutering.
  • Building a humane and friendly animal center, where adoptable animals will never have to be euthanized.
  • Providing information and education to owners about responsible pet ownership, obedience training and rehabilitation of rescues to reduce the number of relinquished and abandoned animals.

To achieve our mission, HART has raised $2.75 million dollars to build and equip the HART Animal Center and to provide ancillary services that will ensure the continued operation of the Center by creating a source of revenue and a permanent endowment. The Center also is creating job opportunities and training county residents interested in animal care, rehabilitation, and rescue and support Garrett County’s efforts to enforce the laws against animal cruelty and neglect.

AND VISION…

HART’s Animal Adoption Center has become a model for compassionate animal rescue and community involvement in saving the lives of companion animals. HART has brought about a community where the famous words of Mahatma Gandhi inspire the efforts of everyone involved in making the center a reality:

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.”

Deep Creek Lake’s Top Spring Activities

 

We are often asked what are Deep Creek Lake’s best spring activities. In a four-season resort like Deep Creek there is always plenty to do as you transition into each season. As we start getting closer to the end of the 2016 winter season it’s a great time to start planning next season’s family adventures. Springtime always has a special place in my heart personally because of the abundance of “new life” after a long winter of hibernation. You will not be disappointed with the diverse amount of activities we have here at Deep Creek to experience. Here are a few to get you started…

Deep Creek Lakes Top Spring Activities
Early morning fishing trip Deep Creek Lake.

 

  • Fishing- Like fishing? Get up before the crack of dawn and get out on the lake with a pale full of golden shiners in some secluded little cove near the dam and get ready to wear out your wrist reeling in 14+ species of fish. All your favorites are here such as largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye, black crappie, yellow perch, bluegill and many other species. Start your day enjoying the peaceful calm that Deep Creek offers every morning and fill up your cooler with lunch for the family.
