Accident: A Town With No Hotel?

Bear Creek CrossingMaryland | Western Maryland Region | Garrett County | Town of Accident

Well, I have my first update from my trip planning research. It seems the only place of lodging in Accident, MD has closed. Bear Creek Crossing Bed & Breakfast was located at 29380 Garrett Hwy in Accident.  It’s closed according to the last review listed for the B&B on TripAdvisor.

To validate, I called the B&B’s listed phone number and got a message that the mailbox has not been setup. If you click on the link ( for Bear Creek Crossing’s website, you get a blank screen. I also checked the website for the Town of Accident, MD and the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce. Bear Creek Crossing is not listed on either site.

Accident is a town with no hotel.

I refused to give up so I checked for a listing on Airbnb. I used several dates over the next two months. In each case, I got 40 or 50 listings around Accident, MD but only one listing in Accident. Here’s the listing if you want to take a look. It’s a house with 3 bedrooms and 4 beds. It sleeps 5 guests.

There are places to stay in nearby towns. Accident is a short drive from Deep Creek Lake. Please tell me if there is a hotel, motel or B&B that I missed.

Thanks for reading the Maryland Travel Stories Blog.
