Maryland | 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 (www.bearcreekbb.net) 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.
I’ve driven through Accident, MD a few times and even stopped once for lunch. I pass through the town on the way to Deep Creek Lake. This is my chance to explore the town a little more.
