It’s HOT Downstate!

Have you ever wondered where ‘downstate’ begins?   The answers vary from ‘other side of the pass’ to ‘east of Cumberland.’ I suspect the true answer is closer to the intersection of I68 and 219. Garrett County folk have a deep understanding that they share a large slice of Maryland heaven.

It doesn’t take many days in the mountains to realize that time spent ‘downstate’ is just a necessary distraction from cool, fresh air, long hikes, and evening boat rides. This time of the year, downstate is down right sweltering and the hot air is due to more than simply an over abundance of politicians.

Even as I write this blog, the Air quality warning is alternating with the local pollen alert on my weather app and while the temperature is merely 91 degrees, the weather.com guru has posted that it feels like a stifling 106 degrees. (How do they even know that?)

Want the Best Price for your Vacation Dollar? Direct Book with RMLV!

At Railey Mountain Lake Vacations, we strive to connect you with your dream vacation home quickly and simply, but equally as important, it is our desire that you receive the best price.

You may have booked one of our properties through HomeAway or VRBO; 3rd party vacation rental sites we use to maximize our inventory’s reach and connect to more Deep Creek Lake vacation goers. Recently, HomeAway and VRBO have added a “service fee” to all reservations booked through their websites. The service fee may add as much as 10% to the total booking value of our vacation rental homes and is captured by VRBO for their purposes alone.

Vacations are already an investment, so why spend extra money when you don’t have to? When booking your Deep Creek Lake rental through our website, DeepCreek.com, there are no hidden fees.
