The Lake Pointe Inn Staff participated in the 2nd Annual July 5th Boat Parade. We moved our “Inn Experience” to our Pontoon Boat –“ The Tight Squeeze”. Ed was cooking, Chris was taking reservations, Ginger was dusting, George and Carolyn were bathing, Tom and Melissa were sleeping, Captain Steve was driving and Linda was gardening. It was truly a fun event to raise money for the Lion’s Club who are dedicated to helping those who are visually impaired. Send us your suggestions for next year’s event!
While you are staying at the Inn mid-week in August, walk over to the Wisp Resort and enjoy the FREE Wisp Concert Series on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 9:00 PM. More information can be found at: http://wispresort.com/wisp-events.php
Sweet Corn might be long gone in your neighborhood in DC, Baltimore or Pittsburgh. But the Fratz’s farm which is located between McHenry and Accident carries their sweet corn, pumpkins and other vegetables through mid -September! Bring some home on your departure from the Inn.
Both Wisp Resort www.wispresort.com (Labor Day Weekend) and High Mountain Sports www.highmountainsports.com (starts August 1st) will be having their used/rental equipment sale. Interested in picking up a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard? Great Prices! If you purchase one – test it on the waters at the Inn!
September is a perfect time to come, relax and enjoy the brisk air that signals the beginning of the Fall Season. We will have the hot apple cider and homemade marshmallows ready for you if there is a chill in the air! Relax by the Inn’s outdoor fire-pit and witness the changing colors of our fall foliage as it is reflected in Deep Creek Lake’s waters.
The Inn is offering complimentary passes year round to Inn Guests for the Community Aquatic & Recreation Complex (www.gccarc.com ) which is equipped with a fitness center, a warm water therapy pool and a 6 lane competition pool. Bring your suits and work-out clothes and request a pass from the Innkeeper.
Pile o’ Pumpkin Month
Bring your creativity and we provide the pumpkins, the carving tools and templates. All month long the Inn is outfitted with many different sized pumpkins for you to carve on the patio (or kitchen, weather dependent). Best of all, you get to take your masterpiece home with you!

Tire Tune Up – We know it sounds odd – but one of Linda’s favorite places to have her tires rotated / serviced or replaced… is Glotfelty Tire. Unlike places around the cities, you can arrive and have your tires replaced or serviced while you wait! We like to be ready for the snow that might start piling up this month! www.glotfeltytire.net . Put in the zip code of 21541 and you will get the location and contact information.
After going to Alaska this past summer, we have a new appreciation for the training and skill of Dogsledding. You may wish to visit our local Husky Dogsledding operation. Call for a tour, a ride or visit: www.huskypowerdogsledding.com/reservations.htm
Of course, we also love to suggest the Pleasant Valley Dream Rides www.pleasantvalleydreamrides.com/carriage.htm . Even if there isn’t any snow, the Millers’ can take you on a delightful ride with their carriage!
