A group trip to The Bavarian Inn in West Virginia proved to be a phenomenal success! We had beautiful rooms overlooking the Potomac River, with gorgeous scenery, an incredibly good, somewhat reasonably priced restaurant with a wonderful wait staff and beautiful grounds. This hotel is incredibly scenic and within walking distance of the beautiful downtown area of Shepherdstown. Restaurants were... More

Our suite was very nice, clean and roomy. We had an beautiful view from our room. our balcony was nice with a bistro table and chairs. The restaurant was not very good and very expensive. since it was a German style resort I opted to order and eat German food. The German food was not good and not worth the... More

Funky rooms with great views, great location and great restaurant. Convenient location near Antietam Battlefield and Harper's ferry and near major highways. Accommodations are eclectic. Plenty of parking.

Very nice relaxing place. The infinity pool is fantastic! The bartender was also terrific and made phenomenal drinks; he kept a nice groove going with the music and truly created a warm comfortable space around the pool. The pool itself is dreamy. The room was okay. But the phone did not work and it was hard to call for room... More

Stayed here three nights during a business trip. Location was chosen for proximity to Antietam National Battlefield. Stayed in the Schwarzwald Haus with views looking the Grey Stone Mansion (lobby and restaurant). The Pros: Not a chain hotel, lots of charm on the grounds Great water pressure and hot water in the shower There was a sink in the toilet... More

The Bavarian Inn provides a picturesque location to rest, relax, and eat between days of adventure along the C&O canal. The Inn sits on a bluff overlooking the Potomac River so its alpine-styled rooms have private balconies with good views. We were given a quiet eastward-facing upper room with a great panoramic view of the river and the sun rising... More
