Lake. Life. Love.
This past weekend was the absolute essence of what fall means to me: time spent with family and friends while enjoying the splendor of our beautiful region. Friday afternoon on a field trip with my son, we got to explore the Cove Run Farm Corn Maze. If you have not visited this unique spot in Accident, MD I recommend checking it out! Cove Run Farms is a 160 acre dairy farm nestled in a beautiful cove right outside of Accident, Maryland. With 140 registered Holstein cows, 155 heifers and calves, a miniature horse, dogs, cats, goats, and the Bender family, the farm tends to be a busy place. Each year they create a corn maze dedicated to a local non-profit. This years non-profit is Foster Appalachia. While at the farm we enjoyed working our way through the maze, a hay ride, cow milking, and the playground! Friday evening was spent at Accident Elementary school at the Fall Fun Fest hosted by the Accident PTO. Saturday we checked out the very first Oktoberfest at Wisp which featured a live Oompah band and awesome kids activities. Sunday we ventured about 40 minutes from Deep Creek Lake to Davis, West Virginia where we explored a new-to-us trail in the Blackwater State Forest. We wrapped the afternoon up with our favorite Davis treat, Hellbender Burritos. Check out the video for shots of our hike and the stunning overlook views we found!

Finding The Right Home For You
Deciding To Buy A Fixer-Upper
If you are a fan of HGTV, you have probably seen your fair share of fixer-uppers. TV shows tend to make everything look easy, especially home flipping or updating. So how do you decide if a fixer upper is worth your time? Here are a few scenarios where diving in usually pays off.
1. The upgrades are simple.
First, you need to find out what types of issues are going to need updated and recognize your personal skills. If a home has foundation, electrical, or plumbing issues, chances are those aren’t easy fixes unless you are a contractor yourself. When it comes to cosmetic fixes, there is usually less of a safety risk so if you’re willing to do the work, those are the houses for you.
2. When the numbers pencil out.
You need to ask yourself if all the work you will put in is going to make the property worth as much or more after you’re finished. Sit down and run the numbers, and decide if you are willing and able to stick to a budget. If you’re handy and willing to put in the hours, your budget may be much smaller than what you would spend on a move-in ready home.
3. You have the time and resources.
Sometimes when investing in a fixer-upper, there will be work that needs done where you may not be able to be in the house. Do you have a friend of family member close by where you can crash while the house is getting rewired, or the insulation is getting installed? If not, is there wiggle room in your budget for a night or two in a hotel when there’s a small emergency with the water pipes? It is important to recognize where you are in life and if you are mentally, physically, and fiscally able to invest in a fixer-upper.
