The hotel is getting a little worn and needs updating. The Dining room is advertised as requiring Jacket after 5 PM, but that is not enforced at all. Why don't people make anything special anymore? There is a less dressy restaurant with the same menu as the dining room, so it was very disappointing to dine in the dining room... More

After a gap of many years, we returned for Valentine's Day--fortunately, the night before. We had heard that the Inn had gone down hill, but NOT SO! We stayed in the Augsburg chalet overlooking the Potomac--great view, well appointed with large Jacuzzi, fireplace and a bottle of wine. Dinner was a wonderful experience. Having spent half of my military career... More

Just spent a night in this charming place and would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone. Went up specifically on the recommendation of a couple we meet from Fredrick who really liked the restaurant and we were not disappointed. The location on the hill overlooking the river is fabulous. In our case it was winter and the river was frozen, but... More

We had a lovely Valentine's weekend. The dining room was beautiful with its scenic view of the Potomac River. The food was delicious and service was impeccable. We plan to return next year and would like to stay in a river view room.

We decided to visit the Bavarian Inn for an early Valentines Day celebration and to visit Harpers Ferry and Antietam during our stay. Our room overlooked the river and was quiet and clean and roomy. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was very good and I was surprised to see a vegetarian choice available. Service was great. Nice package deal including... More

We have been spending a weekend at Bavarian Inn to celebrate our Valentine wedding anniversary for nearly 10 years. Each year becomes more meaningful with the elegance of the suite and the dining experience. Due to renovations this year, we were upgraded to the elegant Presidential Suite with exquisite decor. WOW!

We spent a weekend at the Bavarian Inn over the Christmas holiday. We had a nice room on the river and found the room to be very nice and loved the fireplace. The German cuisine was very authentic, and the Inn is decorated so nice. A great weekend get a way.

Our stay at the Bavarian Inn was wonderful. My husband and I bought a package that included the room and a 4-course meal in the main dining room.
