The preceding month or two had been stressful. We wanted to get away from the stress and we wanted to find the ideal place to celebrate twenty years of marriage. The Bavarian Inn fit those needs perfectly.
We were fortunate enough to stay in a deluxe room in one of the inn's three alpine style chalets. The room was spacious, clean and comfortably furnished. It featured a whirlpool tub, a gas fireplace, and a small patio with a view of the Potomac River. The main building features both a rathskeller and a formal dining room. The rathskeller, in the basement, is small and rustic. The dining room is large and quite formal with large picture windows providing views of the river and of the inn's grounds. Both dining facilities offer courteous and friendly service; they share the same menu featuring German fare. Our meals were tasty and beautifully presented.
There is a great deal to do nearby, especially if you like to explore the charms of a small town. If you are a history buff you'll enjoy a side trip to Harpers Ferry. If casinos or horse racing are activities you like make sure to visit nearby Charlestown. Or maybe you would just like to do nothing sitting by the fire or relaxing in your spa. All of that is available at the Bavarian Inn.
