I’ve written the following posts on Accident:

  2. 06/12/2015 – Accident: A Town With No Hotel?
  3. 06/24/2015 – Annie’s Country Kitchen in Accident MD
  4. 07/06/2015 – The James Drane House in Accident, Maryland


To be honest, I was thinking of moving on to the next town in Garrett County. Accident seems like a nice town but it has no hotel. More importantly, I can’t find information on how to visit the town’s one tourist attraction, The Drane House.

The Garrett County Community Action website gave me another approach for this. There is a Community Legacy Strategic Plan (PDF) for Accident, Maryland. In the plan, there is a section on tourism in the town with a discussion on the Drane House and the Cove Road corn maze. A couple of the opportunities for tourism development are adding a bed & breakfast and further development of the Drane House. I will look into this.

Thank you for reading Maryland Travel Stories!
