Guest blog by Jessie from Red Barn Vacations. Every year, my family comes down to Deep Creek for the annual Art & Wine festival, benefiting HART for Animals.


The whole crew in a previous year. 

It’s a highlight of my year: great local art, wine galore, and time with my favorite people. Thanks to this year’s understandable cancellation of the festival, we’ve been forced to get creative. That’s right: we are hosting our own ‘ DIY Art & Wine Weekend’ at the lake! Here’s how you can do the same (any weekend of the year):

Pontoons, speedboats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and more! The lake is full of marinas with all your favorite watercraft.

Weather you are looking for a peaceful cruise along the many coves and inlets of the lake, or if you want to go dock-to-dock at some of the best destinations around the lake, there is nothing quite like exploring Deep Creek by boat. Make sure to put pit-stops at the popular Honi Honi Bar and delicious Lakeside Creamery on your list! These iconic Deep Creek Lake destinations are essential stops along any day on the lake.

There are tons of rental options along the lake to help get you in the watercraft that is right for you. Boats of all sizes, speeds, and price-points, both motorized and self-propelled. Some rental places even provide delivery and pick-up service for those renting lakefront homes.

Here’s a quick guide to the many rental options at the lake:
