Despite recession, Garrett County housing market still lively

Courtesy of the Daily Record:

Although Garrett County justifiably bills itself as a year-round resort, it definitely is the place in Maryland when it comes to winter recreation, largely thanks to the presence of Wisp Ski Resort and its proximity to other skiing venues in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

In addition to downhill and cross-country skiing, WISP’s winter activities include snowshoeing and tubing. Deep Creek Lake features ice fishing. And winter sleigh rides are available too.

Nor surprisingly, the most desirable property is waterfront on Deep Creek Lake. In mid-December there were 49 lakefront properties on the market with prices ranging from $499,000 to $2.99 million.

At the low end is a lakefront cottage with three bedrooms and three baths with 163 feet of level lakefront. The opposite extreme? A three-level property with seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, one half-bath and five fireplaces, sitting on three-quarters of an acre.
