Falling for Fall in Deep Creek Lake
Autumn is positively my favorite season in Garrett County. The mixture of crisp fall air with the bright orange, yellow, and red hues that sprinkle the mountain top never ceases to amaze me! We so often get asked by visitors if there is anything to do in the area at this time of year and of course, the answer is emphatically YES! My all-time recommendation to everyone, locals and visitors alike, is to take a day and head to Swallow Falls State Park. Not only will the beauty of Muddy Creek Falls revive your spirit but after Labor Day, it becomes a fabulous place to take the dog for an afternoon hike (leashed of course!) Looking for something “kid friendly”? Then I highly recommend that you check out Cove Run Farms Corn Maze! For an extremely reasonable rate, you can take the kids and check out the maze and the petting zoo. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day out of it! For those that seek a little more adventure, Wisp Resort is once again offering the haunted shack/ mountain coaster ride! Nothing like getting your scary Halloween groove on than a good old fashioned haunted house. Put yourself on a mountain coaster at the same time and a guaranteed “frightening” good time is sure to be had by all!! For those that just aren’t quite ready to accept that Summer is coming to an end, it’s not too late to enjoy a peaceful boat ride around the lake. Stop by one of the local marinas to see what kind of deals they may be offering! Be sure to call today to speak to a reservationist about booking your perfect home for your Fall getaway. We are running some terrific specials right now! See you at the lake!
