  • Wedding Testimonials

    The Garrett County Chamber of Commerce was extremely helpful to us while we were planning our daughter’s wedding in summer 2017. We had never been to the Deep Creek area, so we didn’t know where to begin when it came to recommending restaurants, activities, accommodations, etc. We walked into the Chamber of Commerce office and were shown all of the resources available to us. They answered our many questions and we were able to come up with a terrific plan for our guests. To top it off, Jen furnished us with Visitors Guides to put into our hotel bags. The guests loved them! Ann S., August 2017

    The Garrett County Chamber of Commerce was the best ambassador of the Deep Creek experience. The Chamber provided us with incredible resources--maps, menus, best-of guides, and coupons--that we shared with our wedding guests. For many of our guests, this was their first time visiting Deep Creek. So many of them left already planning their return to the area. We, too, cannot wait to get back to Deep Creek where we have time and again enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the area's residents, dined at fabulous restaurants, and been awed at the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. Thank you so much for taking such good care of us and our guests. David S. & Patrick S., September 2014 Wedding

    Deep Creek has a smalltown vibe, and the people who live there are friendly. For weddings specifically, it's much more person to person, not cookie cutter packages I was seeing as I considered other places; that's why I chose Deep Creek over my hometown to have my wedding! Also, it's a great place to visit in the summer because of the cooler temps. - Tessa L., August 2013 Wedding
