My husband and I stayed just one night this time, but will be keeping it in mind for a return week-end getaway in the future. As we were driving there from Beckley Springs, WV we received a call from the Bavarian Inn staff asking if we would like a free upgrade to a Luxury King Suite with River View (we... More

The Inn is located on an absolutely beautiful spot over the river. We didn't spring for a room over the river, but I was sorely tempted. The pool is also located in a very picturesque spot. You also have outdoor dining--we enjoyed our breakfast outdoors. The focus on German food/decor is also lovely. However-- their biggest challenge is wi-fi. Depending... More

My 12 cousins and I booked into the Bavarian Inn the 12th and 13th of July. On the morning of the 12th I tried to reach the front desk from 7:am until 9;am when they finally picked up. There was complete bedlam at the front desk. The girl answering the phone was in a state of chaos. She put me... More

When a guest demands discounts when making the reservation and then arrives at check-in without a "hello," but instead barking "Trip advisor asks me to write reviews all the time".. we should have known this would be trouble. We'll just leave it at that. Best wishes in future travels. More

I have visited the Bavarian Inn restaurant on several occasions over the past few years and have always enjoyed the German food, German beer and elegant atmosphere. My last visit on Saturday, 9 July 2016 indicated that there might be problems in the kitchen. I was with group of roughly 20 people for lunch. The Späten Lager was as good... More

Dear JohnnyFry1, Thank you for your comments. I do indeed remember your party, and sincerely apologize for the mix ups. The day you came was the very first day of our new computer system, and yes there were a few glitches, which unfortunately caused service and kitchen errors on our part. I greatly apologize for this, and do hope to... More

My wife and I were traveling by motorcycle and The Bavarian Inn was our first night layover stop.

We have been going to the Bavarian Inn twice a year for over 10 years. We were recently there from June12-16,2016. Our room had a beautiful view of the river and we truly enjoyed sitting on our deck and watching boats sail by.

My husband and I spent a week touring Civil War battlefields. I found the Bavarian Inn, OMG what a beautiful place.

Had a GREAT visit to the Bavarian Inn on our tour of Antietam and my birthday weekend. The staff were very accommodating and attentive. Meals were out of this world! The room (we had a river view room) was fabulous! Loved sitting on the deck watching the river flow by in the evenings.

This is a great place to relax and have fun, the food is great with so many choices. If you love to shop then Shepherdstown is not that far, if you love history, then look no further because it's all around you.
