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

After a bit of a rocky start, the Managers and staff more than made up for the issues at the beginning. The staff was wonderful and if we needed something it was immediately taken care of. The food was very good, and the infinity pool was awesome with a beautiful view of the river and mountains. We would definitely stay... More

The Bavarian Inn has always been charming, and nicely appointed. Many travelers enjoyed the scenic beauty of changing leaves in the fall, and restful views along the Potomac. A crackling fire in your room, an ample German meal in either of the two dining areas, and an abundant selection of wines made for cozy time spent. The drive was only... More

We stayed in the Augsburg with nice views of the Potomac River. The pool is kind of cool, situated overlooking the river as well and worth packing the bathing suit and having an evening drink in the pool on a hot summer's night. The room was comfortable though rather dated, almost seedy, but we slept well and it was convenient... More

We stayed here for two nights during a visit to Shepherdstown. The staff were very helpful, and had the authority to make quick decisions, which we greatly appreciated. The infinity pool was great, with a very beautiful view of the river and surrounding scenery. There are no refrigerators in the rooms but ice is available. The Antietam Battlefield is nearby,...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights as a "get away" after having the grandkids for several days. The location is great-the view from the balcony is wonderful. The room, the buildings, and the grounds need to be given a "facelift", in my opinion. Housekeeping was just "so-so. The pool was very nice and well maintained, the service... More

I will work with housekeeping to see where we missed the mark, and I apologize for this. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Sincerely,... More

Ok, I use tripadvisor all the time and thought people that wrote reviews didn't have anything better to do with there time but over the years I became pretty dependent on these reviews and now I would like to contribute. As for the Bavarian Inn, its a pretty neat place but the new owners need to take my advice seriously...bird... More

Our bike tour group arrived here covered in mud after a downpour on the C&O trail. After we hosed each other off, I headed for the most beautiful infinity pool, overlooking the Potomac. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, and I sat out on my own patio with morning coffee. We had a great dinner of all kinds of... More

We were in Shepherdstown for the Contemporary film festival and chose the Bavarian Inn for an overnight stay since we had stayed there years ago and loved it. I'd like to rate the hotel 4 stars, but this time our room was in the middle Chalet (Bodensee) at the bottom level (Room 28). The entrance to the lower rooms is... More

Dear dsarah, Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the pool, the room, the grounds and the restaurant. I am so sorry about the hallway near the entrance of the room. Recent storms (including 2 tornadoes) recently hit us with an extensive amount of rain and wind damage. More than our drainage could keep up with. This was... More
