We have stayed at the Bavarian Inn numerous times over the last 25 years and have always enjoyed our visits. Most recently, we booked one of the suites (something I've always wanted to do) for a long weekend. Very disappointing -- several light bulbs in our room were burned out, the drapes were hanging half off the rod, and we... More

We took advantage of the 2014 overnight package that included dinner and drink pairings with each course. We ate in the Rathskeller Pub and it was fun and the food and beer was excellent. We had the Luxury Riverview Room, with fireplace and jaccuzzi tub. It was a nice experience and getaway for the night. We had breakfast in the... More

We enjoy the river view rooms in the chalet but have also stayed in the main lodge. Be sure to have dinner- you won't be disappointed. It is the best crab cakes ever. All lump and broiled to perfection. The rooms have an old style ambiance. We enjoy staying there because you can enjoy a wonderful meal and drinks and... More

River view, great room, really friendly staff. Looking forward to returning in the near future. the new infinity pool under construction should be a great addition. The Rathskellar has the same menu as the main dining room but is more relaxed and has live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Only place I've ever been that had Pappy Van Winkle... More

We have been visiting The Bavarian Inn since the 1980's and it is still a favorite place for a weekend away from home just to relax and be pampered. The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished with every amenity you can think of, including bathrobes. The chalet's are located on a cliff overlooking the Potomac River just over a bridge...
