Deep Creek Lake Friday 5 - VOL. 3
Every week I cover my 5 favorite events, announcements, new businesses, and fun from around the Deep Creek Lake Area and Garrett County, Maryland!
1. GCPS Plants Trees at Hickory
The Maryland Forest Service and Garrett County Public Schools staff planted approximately 50 trees on Maryland Arbor Day, which is the first Wednesday in April. The trees were planted at the Hickory Environmental Education Center which is located on Pride Parkway in Accident, Maryland, behind Northern Middle and High Schools. They planted a variety of species and sizes which will expand the arboretum at Hickory. Abor Day is nationally recognized on April 30th. Start making your plans now, get out and plant a tree (or 50) and help keep our area beautiful!
2. Help Hunter Get Outside Fundraiser
Tomorrow, is the Help Hunter Get Outside fundraiser, beginning at 11AM at the Southern Garrett Rescue Squad. A community effort led by Brent and Autumn Sanders; the fundraiser will assist a local family in purchasing an Action Track wheelchair for their young son. The cost for entry is a donation. Meals will include a bbq half chicken, smoked beans, coleslaw, and a drink. Everything will be available while supplies last. Because of the goodness of this community, all of the food, supplies, and time have been donated. Many individuals and businesses also stepped up to donate gift baskets to be raffled off at the event. As of April 7, Mr. Sanders estimated that as many as 60 baskets had been donated.
3. The Tiny Corner Bike Shop
The Tiny Corner Bike Shop reopens for the season tomorrow, April 10th at 930 AM! Located at 103 Town Park Lane in Downtown Oakland, MD the bike shop offers bike repairs, apparel, gear, tools, new bikes, and soon, bike rentals!

4. Taylor-Made Road Clean Up
The Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations and Sales team divided and conquered this week as we cleaned up miles and miles of Deep Creek Lake roadways including Glendale, Lake Shore, Deep Creek Drive, & Marsh Hill! As part of the Adopt a Road Program, out team goes out to clean up trash from the sides of these roads, helping to keep the Deep Creek Lake area beautiful! For more information about the Adopt a Road program of Garrett County, contact the Garrett County Dept of Public Works – Roads Division. The Adopt-a-Road program is a great way to become involved in beautification of the scenic community.
5. This Week in Real Estate
There are currently 94 homes on the market with 20 new homes coming on this week. There are 110 homes pending sale, 12 of those are new contracts this week. 8 homes were sold this week, making the total so far for 2021 160. The average days on market so far this year is 63.25 and the average sales price has been $510,504. The average list to sale percentage is 100%. All of these numbers add up to one thing, NOW is a historically incredible time to sell your home. While you’ve been hearing this from every agent you’ve spoken with in the past year, I also want to add that, I understand why you might not want to sell your home in beautiful Garrett County. If you’re a second home owner who may be interested in capitalizing on your investment, let’s talk about some strategies to make that happen, and make sure you don’t lose out on time here at Deep Creek Lake. I’m willing to get creative for you! Interested in ANY homes, land, or commercial property in ANY part of Garrett County?? Give me a call, shoot me a text, send me a message in a bottle today!
