We had a wonderful time during our 3 day stay at the Bavarian Inn. All the staff is excellent. Our Housekeeper Rose was awesome! We had a group of about 20 rooms and 6 of us decided to stay for another night. Reservations were able to arrange for us to stay in the room we were in.

For a family a nice place to stay, large game room and several swimming areas. Close to town to be able to park and walk to the downtown area and avoid the traffic. We got each year for the Snowfest, great location for that festival.

We have been staying here for the past 4 years during "Snowfest" in January. The whole staff is always so pleasant and helpful. The beds were comfortable and that's important for me with my bad back.

Another fantastic weekend at Winterfest! We have stayed at the lodge 22 of the 23 years we have attended this event. Only missed 2 years. Something for all to do! Service at the lodge was great! Rooms were cleaned each day. Extra blankets and towels were delivered quickly.
