My parents, husband and I just returned from a weekend there (february 2012). As I said, this hotel is probably the nicest place to stay in the area. The views of the river are stunning, and the beds were comfortable. The carpeting and bathroom sinks and fixtures looked relatively new. Both rooms had 2 beds each. But there were plenty... More

This was our third visit to the Bavarin Inn and it won't be our last! The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The restaurant is fabulous and the room is comfortable and romantic.

We stayed in our favorite Bavarian Inn this weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. The Inn and food was exceptional as usual and is one of the few facilities that we can fully relax in and feel totally welcome by the staff. The area surrounding Shepardstown provide significant activities to attend and view. This weekend was a booksigning in Boonsboro,... More

We spent my mom's birthday weekend, and the Luxury River View rooms ( we had two of them) were perfect for our ladies' weekend. The rooms were comfortable & clean & the view & balcony were good. It was very quiet here - I'm used to the sound of other rooms' doors opening and closing and the water running, and... More

A great old world dining and lodging experience overlooking the Potomac River. Our deluxe room in one of the chalets was beautifully appointed with a fireplace that really heated the room and a luxurious jacuzzi tub. We had dinner in the dining room (the Ratskeller has the same menu but is more casual) with a menu featuring both American and... More

We stayed in winter. We had the river view rooms, which was very nicely appointed, with apples waiting for us. Would be a better stay in the summer, when you could use the balcony, tennis court, etc. The only negative was that to get to the rooms you have to go through a pretty dingy corridor, a real contrast to...

So my husband and I were going to do some rafting and hiking in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. While we love being in the field getting dirty all day, we want an upscale hotel with all the amenities for night. It appeared the options were limited and I settled on the Bavarian Inn in Sheperdstown. My first impression... More

We were booked for four nights, we stayed one. Our room was in the main "mansion" on the top floor with a magnificent view of the C&O Canal, hills of West Virginia, etc., but also full of bugs. We woke up to seeing the bugs crawling out of the ceiling light. When we called the front desk, they offered to... More

Thank you for your comments. I am so sorry about your experience, and can absolutely assure you that this is not the norm. The mansion rooms are rarely used, and after the heat being shut down for a while, environments change, even after an extremely thorough cleaning. We will make certain to keep the heat on for a few days... More

I was fortunate to have a balcony room with a view. The room itself was very very large with a fireplace, spa in the bathroom and separate shower. The room also had a great sitting area and plenty of amenities. The breakfast was standard fare in the restaurant, but the town itself had great restaurants for meals. I would go... More
