This Inn is a gem! We spent our anniversary in one of the chalets, enjoyed the "infinity" pool overlooking the Potomac River, and enjoyed learning about the history of Shepherdstown. The town is also charming! and there are plenty of restaurants and shops to visit; and on Saturdays there is a farmers' market. overall a wonderful long weekend! (We are... More

My wife and I stayed with our daughter here on the evening of Sunday, June 28, 2015. We were very pleased with the hotel and the restaurant. The food was delicious and the hotel decor and overall experience was quite enjoyable. The scenery is superb!! We liked it so much that we even came back the following evening to have... More

Our second stay at this charming inn with a Euro feel. Overall a pleasant experience. The food is stellar and the staff top drawer. Our room was well appointed but had some shortcomings. Beautiful view overlooking the Potomac River, but don't stay close to the bridge - it's noisy. The balcony is a nice treat, but they really need cleaning,... More

Our expectations were so high for the Bavarian Inn but after our stay, we were not impressed. We booked a river view room but we were disappointed when our room was on the bottom floor of one of the chalets. We had to navigate 3 sets of stairs with luggage (no elevator). The carpeting on the stairs and in the... More

After a rainy daylong slog along the towpath from Cumberland, the Inn embraced us from the moment we arrived -- bikes and bodies covered in mud. The receptionists were lovely and helpful pointing us to a hose for our gear and recommending options for securing our bikes. They recommended we make a reservation at the Rat right away. We washed... More

We were in a river view luxury room. It was clean, large, wonderful Jacuzzi with a great view of the river and railroad bridge. Traffic noise was not noticeable. Our housekeeper was very nice. The food was just to die for !! Our favorites were the Beef Munich, Schwarzwaelder Kaese Spaetzle; Norwegian Smoked Salmon; Jaeger Schnitzel and Seared Pheasant breast... More

From the first conversation, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The lady ,who made our reservation , remembered our concerns about stairs. We were in the Danube section, room 46. It was very nice and large. Our very own suite. The food in the German restaurant was very good, as was the service. The infinity pool and view were very... More

We visited several states along the mason Dixon line and stayed in the Bavarian inn for 6 nights. It was delightful. The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. I would say that the rooms were spotless! The beds were comfortable and everything worked (as it should). Add to that the close proximity to the Antietam battlefield, c and o... More

Pretty disappointed. Musty smelling and dated rooms though they are a good size. Dinner and breakfast are overrated. This is a great place for day trips to downtown, Harpers Ferry and Martinsburg but probably not worth the price.

The Bavarian Inn was spectacular! We stayed June 9th and 10th in the Augsburg room #4. The view , authentic German food and the entire staff were amazing and made our visit a memorable experience!!
