Returned after many years to meet with old friends at this once-upscale hotel. Arrived early and very gracious check-in staff took our cell number to call us when the room was ready. When we realized quite some time had gone by and it was past the normal check-in time, my spouse went to the desk and was told that the... More

This was our third visit to the Bavarian Inn in the past twenty years - life gets busy and the choices are many; if pets were allowed pets we would've been back much sooner. The wait between our last visit and this one, to celebrate our 25+ year anniversary, was well worth the wait and the Inn was as charming... More

We decided to take a short trip from Annapolis to a local venue aiming at Hagerstown, MD. In our search, we came across the Bavarian Inn in Shepardstown, WV, a small college town. That met our desires nicely so we booked it for an anniversary visit. Having had a wonderful independent trip to Bavaria two years back, our expectations were... More

My fiance & I stayed here over the weekend and we had a wonderful time! The property is so beautiful & the staff is more than willing to help you with anything you need. The pictures of the rooms do not do them justice. We stayed in a riverview luxury room & it was WAY bigger than it looked in... More

Some friends of ours who live in Shepherdstown took us to lunch here. They were very excited and took great pride in this place. It's a nice place and the service was very friendly and fast. The atmosphere is quaint but the food was just ok. Both my wife and I ordered the Crab Cakes, a house specialty. The cakes... More

Normally we are huge fans of the Bavarian but we went last Saturday and they were having an off night. The service was incredibly slow. It took forever for drinks, wine, and each course was 45 minutes apart. We sat there waiting and waiting for the food. Food was great but it was not a pleasant experience given the wait.... More

If you travel to the Harper's Ferry area, stay at the Bavarian Inn. You won't regret it. Be sure to ask for a room in one of the cottages overlooking the Potomac. They are very comfortable and homey. The only issue for us was that I had to walk next door to get ice, but, absent a downpour, that's no... More

We purchased one of their package deals that included a room, dinner and a wine paring. All I can say is it had to be the best money we have ever spent.

Just a great room. Restaurant to die for--both Traditional German food and American selections. Loved the German traditional pork and the wiener schnitzel. Wife had two different salmon dishes and...

My husband and I have been here before to celebrate our anniversary. The room we had was really nice, and we loved the oversized Jacuzzi. We slept so well. We ate dinner at their restaurant. Their breakfast was awesome. We want to come back in the summer.
