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. The chalet-style room was cozy and had everything we needed, but the real highlight was the food. Each course was fantastic and came with a wine pairing. Our waitress, Holly, was very... More

We spend one night at The Bavarian Inn and we are already looking forward to our return trip. Located in a peaceful setting above the Potomac River, the Inn is a little piece of Bavaria in West Virginia. The rooms are very comfortable; ours was in the Danube House overlooking the Potomac River. The fireplace made the room very cozy,... More

We very much enjoyed our meals and accomodations. The staff is well trained and friendly and the food is beyond delicious. Wine and beer options are plentiful and the staff is quite capable to help with selections. The town is within walking distance and has several charming shoppes. The Antietam battlefield is less than a ten minute drive away. This... More

Just returned from an Excellent Stay and Dinner at The Bavarian Inn. We are headed to Germany in May 2015 and this was a nice preview of Bavarian hospitality. We stayed in the Danube Haus facing the Potomac River. Our room was very comfortable, especially the huge king lux bed. We enjoyed the gas fireplace and Direct TV (a nice... More

I've been to a number of large special events here. ALL went extremely smooth thanks the the help of their professional staff. The conference rooms, fantastic dining, and beautiful lodging made for the perfect place to hold events here. Enjoy!

My husband, son, brother, and sister-in-law recently had the Chef's Special Five Course Tasting dinner. It was excellent! Each course had us ooh-ing and ah-ing about some aspect of the food - the sauce, the crust, the taste - there were good things in every round.

My wife and I have been going to the Bavarian Inn every Autumn for over 13 years. We moved from Maryland to Delaware, and would often make the almost 5 hour drive. The scenery is breathtaking, and the German food is some of the best you will find anywhere. Staff very pleasant. I really cannot say too many great things... More

I've stayed at the Bavarian Inn several times—and no matter the season, it's an excellent experience! I love the patio for outdoor dining and the food is always delicious.

We stayed at the Bavarian Inn in August in one of their Luxury Suite rooms on the Potomac. I wanted a room close to the pool and farthest away from the bridge/road as possible in case of road noise. We were pleased with the location of the room (although we didn't get to swim!). I agree with some of the... More
