Employees at the Bavarian Inn were very friendly and helpful. Our kids had an amazing time in the huge arcade and thought the new slides and splash pool were awesome! We stayed in a family suite, and it was very comfortable.

You will experience a old world Germany & hospitality along with charm. Make sure not to miss anything. Each shop has it's own unique specialty. The covered bridge even has a story, be sure to watch the short video offered & free at the Leather Shop on Main Street

Our family went to celebrate my mom's birthday and for the Snowfest. This place is amazing! Every employee I encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. The arcade and pools and putt-putt golf are all located in the same area as the family restaurant (The Ratskellar) so the older kids can come and go while the adults do their thing. I... More

My wife and i took our grandchildren up to the Bavarian inn during the month of January to escape the grips of winter and had a wonderful time swimming, playing in the fun center, and enjoying all the amenities the Bavarian had to offer. The rooms were very nice and staff were very helpful with all our needs and questions.... More

Winter blues got us down! Booked a couple nights at the Bavarian Inn Lodge & relaxed in the beautiful room overlooking the Cass river. Sunny days gave us opportunity to walk over the covered bridge into town and the Ice/Snow Sculpture festival! Picked the snow lion and ice kitchen as our favorites! Danced a bit to Swift Brothers Band in... More

Had a great time enjoying the adult only pool & hot tub. Watched the Snowfest fireworks from the adult hot tub, how great is that. Even though it was one of the busiest weekends of the year, the adult pool & family fun center pools and hot tub were not overcrowded and all the employees were very friendly and helpful.... More

This was one of the best hotel/resort experiences that we have had. It was really unique to be able to step into a hotel and feel like you are in another part of the world! The staff was awesome from the check in to the games room and everywhere else. Good food and lots to do without even leaving the... More
