We enjoy the Bavarian Inn several times a year. When we want to get away, it somehow comes down to the Bavarian Inn every time. We have recommended the Inn to numerous friends and people in course of discussion. Those that tried the Inn, thanked us for the recommendation and would go back again. This year we wanted something different... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon 30 years ago and have returned for anniversary trips on three occasions. They have done a good job of preserving the historic Inn and the rooms are excellently appointed. Even their standard rooms are a notch above the ordinary.

The room was clean, somewhat aged, spacious and had decent free internet. There is a "fine dining" restaurant which we didn't try and a basement cellar restaurant which had decent food albeit somewhat tacky decor. Overall, this... More

Great views, great food, atmosphere, service, friendly and helpful staff, convenient to Antietam, Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, everywhere we wanted to visit. The fireplace in the room was a welcome touch. Highly recommend. The Sunday Brunch Buffet was excellent. Loved the Rathskeller.
