My wife and I booked a five-night stay at the Bavarian Inn in early August 2016. I chose the more expensive Potomac View Premium room hoping it would be quiet (top floor, away from the highway in one of the three chalets not up against the highway) and more comfortable overall (fridge, space, view). Our arrival was a bit difficult... More

First of all, the staff is amazing! Caitlin at registration was very eager to help, and offered some great suggestions of places to eat (Blue Moon cafe was a great suggestion, thanks Caitlin!) We stayed in the river view room and the views were incredible. Also loved the infinity pool. I suggest going either right at open/close because otherwise it... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to our area. I am sorry that the local wedding did take over much of the property during your visit.

This was probably the fourth time we stayed at the Bavarian Inn while we were attending the terrific CATS Theater Festival in Shepherdstown. The new infinity pool was a terrific addition since we were last there, The rooms, grounds, facilities and staff were a pleasure, as usual. The view across the river was a never ending delight, and being walking... More

Good location, great Ratskeller bar, with Spaten on draft. Dinner was good, but service was slow. Might have been our server as others seemed to go faster. Price what a bit high for the quality of food and service. Rooms were large, bathrooms were large, each room had it's own balcony. But the family upstairs had kids and they were... More

The basics first. We spent a night in a "Premier" (formerly known as "luxury style") river front room as part of the "Splash and Stay" package, swam/ lounged in the infinity pool, ate dinner in the Rathskeller, and ate breakfast in the main room.

The Bavarian Inn does have a nice location but there are a few things that would help accent the place. First I would suggest that the desk clerk at least try to smile and welcome you to the establishment. When I asked about the dining choices she just looked at me and said "do you have reservations?" well no...we just... More

Bavarian Inn was a great break, get-away place to stay for a couple of nights. The rooms were large, comfortable, and accommodating. The restaurants served delicious meals. The pool area was simple and pleasant, with bar, snack, and meal service.
