The hills are alive at the Bavarian Inn. (Sorry, couldn't help myself) The setting is beautiful and the Inn is quite charming and full of the "Old World" feel. I went expected a great, relaxing getaway and was not disappointed but was quite surprised to get several unexpected extras. Although the facility has some years on it, the room was... More

The Inn was clean, quiet , and interestingly decorated. This is not a modern inn but a very nice place to spend some time. The checkin clerks were helpful. The room spacious and it was nice getting to hang out on the deck overlooking the Potomac. Bed comfortable and bathroom spacious. Would come back for sure.

This gem in the hills of WV is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway. The amenities are very nice. I felt like I was back in Germany. The food in their dining room is out of this world. Their German chef made some maple, bacon donuts for our brunch that were out of this world. The infinity pool is... More

We spend 2 days here, the 1st time in several years. They've installed a new infinity pool w/bar, which is great. First time I've every found the water warm. The accommodations are as great as ever. Food at the onsite restaurant was great as usual. Very relaxing and enjoyable. We'll be back sooner. Has tennis courts & the C&O canal,... More

We stayed at the Bavarian Inn for CATF. It is very convenient to the venues (though it took us a while to realize that we should walk down the hill for the underground walkway versus on the shoulder of the road). The inn was clean and well maintained, but, as you can see from the other reviews, all of the... More

Look, trying to keep a luxury hotel in private hands is tough. especially when you are in rural West Virginia. The hotel does its best but the rooms are dated (Im guessing last renovated in the 90s) the main hotel buildings have a need for a major renovation. the problem is; for this to be a renewed classic it would...

Dear gohorns043, Thank you for your comments. Our property is 37 years of age, and a lot of that is what gives the Inn it's charm. We are constantly renovating our rooms and property to maintain a class organization. Although, we would be happy to have a $20 M investment, we would still insist that we keep the original charm...

We stayed at the Bavarian Inn last week and were less than impressed. The room was small and the view was of the parking lot. The staff was trying to make the best of what resources they had. Our room keys would not open the door on two occasions and required us to make the hike to the front desk.... More

Dear 27Rose1946, I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We do offer many other styles of rooms that offer glorious views of the Potomac River. I apologize that your keys had difficulties, and you didn't enjoy the short walk from the hotel building to the one that houses the restaurant. We do offer room service which may... More

We come to Shepardstown every July for the Contemporary American Theater Festival. We love the Bavarian Inn's charm, scenic beauty and superb restaurant. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

I have stayed at the Bavarian Inn twice but eaten there many times. I really like German food and I think they do a very nice job in their kitchen. The restaurant is a little old fashioned which I find charming. The Inn is as well but again, very charming. The setting on the Potomac River is superb. One can... More

My sister's (5 OF US) just attended the Shepherdstown Festival. We stayed at the Bavarian Inn and found it to be charming, beyond our expectations. It's a little bit of Heaven with a French flavor. The food is delicious, amazing service not only at meals but for all your needs. Room service was prompt and everything was the proper temperature.... More
