Local Shopping and Eating

Garrett County offers a surprising array of shopping and dining choices.   There are several “big box” stores along Route 219 just north of Oakland and many good restaurants around the resort communities of Deep Creek Lake.   Below are a few of our favorites in the area.

Shawnee Trading Post

If you’ve never stumbled across the Shawnee Trading Post on Pysell Crosscut Road, then you are missing one of the most eclectic shopping opportunities that Garrett County has to offer.  From life size dinosaurs to plastic Elvis statues, this place is worth a visit.

1085 Pysell Crosscut Rd.
Oakland, MD 21550
Phone:  301-334-4368

Naylor’s Hardware

If you are like us, then you didn’t come to Garrett County for the “big box” store experience.   Try Naylor’s old fashioned hardware store in downtown Oakland.  If they don’t have it, you don’t need it.  Great, friendly service.

32 South 3rd Street
Oakland, MD 21550
Phone:  301-334-3923

Englander’s Antiques/Dottie’s grill

Antique mall and old fashioned soda fountain diner.  Great for milkshakes, breakfast all day, and tater tots at the counter!

205 East Alder Street
Oakland, MD 21550

El Canelo Mexican Restaurant

A great local restaurant for good Mexican food and sangria.

12680 Garrett Highway
Oakland, MD 21550

Deer Park Inn

If you are celebrating a special occasion, then we’d recommend this restaurant for fine dinning in nearby Deer Park.

65 Hotel Road
Deer Park, MD 21550
