Art Museum

“Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows is our pilot brewery nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains where we craft our beer recipes on a traditional German designed 10 Hectoliter brewing system. We’ll pour you a pint from one of the 48 taps on property served up alongside a delicious oak wood-fired dishes. Fast-casual fare is available outside at The Oak Grill along with beer and wine at The Outdoor Bar. Inside The Shanty, we pour rare Devils Backbone beers, and a wide selection of fine spirits with a focus on whiskey and cigars. And if you’re a morning person, made-to-order breakfast and craft specialty coffees are available from The Summit. Feel free to bring your dogs over, we don’t mind. Actually, we encourage it. Just remember to keep ‘em leashed and they’re not allowed in buildings or patios where food is served.”

“Visit on a weekend morning for a slice of Pittsburgh! Outdoor and indoor vendors - great food and shopping, with international places, meats, cheeses, fruits/vegetables, crafts - a Pittsburgh experience! Great place to eat, people-watch, and get some of those true Pittsburgh souvenirs! Check out Wholey's seafood market, Parma sausage, the Polish Deli, Reyna's, Pennsylvania Macaroni, a host of restaurants and diners, too many things to name!”

National Park
“Natural paradise that's lovely to visit any time of the year. While fall is most popular due to the changing colors, many avoid it during this season because of the crowds. Spring, summer and winter are rather quiet, affording plentiful wildlife sightings (we saw a black bear on our last visit) and incredible viewpoints. Wrap up your visit with dinner in Charlottesville, VA, a fun college town with trendy restaurants and bars and a surprisingly hipster scene.”

New American Restaurant
“Tari's serves an incredible tomato-basil bisque for lunch (and dinner!) I particularly enjoy the pecan-crusted salmon filet with spinach and gingered mashed sweet potatoes for dinner. They also have steaks! Weekend dinner is usually busy, but the crowd is gone by 8pm or so. Most places in town close early compared to the city--fair warning. :) ”

American Restaurant
“This is one of our most popular restaurants here in Garrett County. Centrally located to all of Deep Creek Lakes activities. They offer a wide variety of menu options that is sure to please everyone. Dockage right out back. Ever-popular Honi-Honi Tiki bar next door brings in lots of talented musical groups (and if you are lucky, my cousin Jimmy Flanigan may be strumming his guitar for your entertainment)! ”
