Nov 2-9 -I’m heading to Deep Creek, Maryland next week to officially kick off the Vacation Rental Roadtrip.

I am staying in a vacation home called Amazing Overlook, a 3 bedroom town home with an AMAZING view overlooking the lake managed by Joe and Jodi Refosco at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacation Rentals.

Jodi sent me some info about the area:

  • Deep Creek Lake is 12 miles long but has 65 miles of shoreline – so a lot of coves. We have 2 bridges on the lake to make the drive from one end to the other not so bad 9probably takes me about 20 minutes from my office to get the farthest end of the lake (south)).
  • We have a number of nice restaurants
    • Dutch’s – my favorite
    • Cornish Manor in Oakland – about a 15 minute drive it is in an old victorian home – pretty cool and I know the bartenders;)
    • JG’s Pub located right up the road from us — great food, affordable and nice place for the locals to hang out (AKA looks like a biker bar – but do not be scared;)
    • Brenda’s Pizzeria – Mondays are half price pizzas – the best pizza on the lake
    • Trader’s Coffee House (right below Brenda’s) – sports the best chai tea
    • Telli’s Deli is my girlfriend’s Italian Deli – wonderful lunch items
    • Canoe on the Run – also another awesome stop
    • Uno’s is popular with everyone since it sits right on the lake and pretty consistent
    • Black Bear Tavern – closest thing we have to a club
  • Shopping
    • More boutique style places
    • Bear Creek Traders in the heart of McHenry
    • School House Earth on 42 just outside of Deep Creel Lake
    • Down town oakland is worth a day trip and chef out their transportation museums, lunch at Dottie’s Soda Fountain shop aka Englander’s – located in the back of an antique shop, cute boutique stores
  • Activities
    • So that time of year is in between seasons so not much happening but here are some ideas
    • Hike Swallow Falls – highest waterfall in Maryland
    • Lavender farm
    • Cove Run Farm Maze – neat to check out always has a different them annually
    • Wisp – mountain coaster, zip lines, disc golf – seasonal hours
    • Cobblestone Salon – bes pedicures
    • Nemacolin – short drive 30 minutes – incredible spa and restaurants
    • Discovery Center at the State park and hiking Deep Creek State Park trails
More to come!
