My ties to Deep Creek started long ago…
In 1974, my Grandma and Grandpap Smith bought a cabin on Marsh Hill Road here at Deep Creek Lake. My mom and her brothers began spending their summers at the cabin, learning how to water ski and enjoying “Buttercup” the family boat. Then in the late 80s, my siblings and I started doing the same.
My husband is originally from the area and now we live here! We’ve called Deep Creek and Garrett County “home” since 2013 and boy, it’s been one of the best decisions. I quickly became acquainted in our local business scene and with the many tourists that visit our area. Add that to the natural beauty, the people, and the energy + activity we see because of tourism and BOOM, I was excited about this place, proud of it and fell in love all over again…just like I did when I was a kid.
Tolliver! Make sure you do the full loop at Swallow Falls State Park so you see all three waterfalls, including Tolliver Falls, a very picturesque part of the forest.
a sweatshirt! Even in the warmer months we get some chilly evenings. If you're coming in October and beyond, bring a sweatshirt and a jacket...and maybe some snow boots.
Our McHenry Beverage has the biggest wine room I’ve ever seen and Deep Creek Beverage has a super convenient drive-thru. Be sure to tell owners Jim and Peg that I sent you!
The Rolling Pin Bakery in Accident makes some of the best. They're only available on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and go early because they sell out!
