My husband and I were given a gift card to The Bavarian Inn for Christmas. We used it in January (the earliest we could go). Even though it was the middle of winter, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We decided to "go for broke" and stayed in their best room, The Royal Suite. Talk about romantic! It had an easy-to-start... More

What a great weekend getaway! The views from the infinity pool are spectacular. Both the food at the pool and the restaurant (at dinner and breakfast) were outstanding. Looking forward to our next visit!

We very much enjoyed a recent return visit to the Bavarian Inn during the Contemporary American Theater Festival. This time, we took advantage of fine summer weather and spent more of our downtime in between plays at their new riverfront infinity pool. We enjoyed a couple of very good meals and cocktails poolside. The prices in the main restaurant seemed... More

The view from my suite in the Augsburg Chalet was amazing. The room was well appointed, and more than comfortable. The dining options on the property are fantastic as well. A fantastically curated wine list and cocktail options that exceed expectation. The hotel amenities, restaurant and pool area paired with the view and property grounds allow this hotel to surpass...

We just recently had the pleasure of staying here on the banks of the beautiful Potomac River! To say the views were outstanding and magnificent is an understatement. This location cannot be beat for it's proximity to historic sites and fantastic restaurants (one of which happens to be on it's property - "The Rathskeller")! We had gone to visit Antietam... More

For over 10 years we have gone up to Shepherdstown to attend the Contemporary American Theatre Festival. During that time we have stayed at several local hotels and B&Bs. In the end we have stopped shopping around and go straight to the Bavarian Inn. Initially we stayed at in one of the garden view rooms which were nice, but nothing... More

Place has age but is very well maintained. The rooms overlooking the Potomac river are very nice. The beds are incredible. Try the restaurant for dinner. Food is first class and not too pricey. Sunday brunch is really something to try.

My husband and I booked the Bavarian Inn as a three day escape following our wedding. We checked in on a pretty quiet Monday afternoon. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly woman behind the counter. She provided us with some helpful information about the property. When my husband and I opened the door to... More

We spent the day visiting wineries and were so pleased to have such a lovely room to come back to. So many nice touches- but the bed was the best! Incredibly comfortable. We couldn't stay for the brunch but heard it is worth the price. They serve Bloomery Plantation's SweetShine which we love! Hoping to return this summer.
