My Deep Creek
Experience
IN 2015, MY WORK BROUGHT OUR FAMILY
TO GARRETT COUNTY
from 38 years of living in central North Carolina. We came in the spring of 2015 to check out the
area after being offered a position in Oakland. We took some time
to really examine what it was that made Garrett County special. What we found was a community rich
in history, natural resources and, most importantly, amazing people. Everyone we met wanted to help
us find our place in the community. People helped us learn about school options, doctors, churches and, in general, where to plug in and be a part of the community.
The greatest advantage of moving here has been the variety of things to do throughout the year. There
is an amazing arts and crafts community that puts on festivals and shows year-round. This community is where I am employed as the Plant Manager for Simon Pearce Glassblowing and Factory Store in Mountain Lake Park. There are the extraordinary state parks here, including Deep Creek Lake, Herrington Manor and Swallow Falls just to name a few. There are also other fun activities like bike trails, boating, swimming, horseback riding (we have an Arabian named Cali) and skiing at the Wisp Resort. Finally, I would say that the amazing beauty of the area will leave you standing and staring in awe.
