It's more of a commercial place. Not a good overnight accommodation. Very typically average rooms. Bed and sleep comfort was good. Am sure other nearby places are nicer as lots of great B&B options nearby Service was great. Food was average.

We have stayed at the Inn on numerous occasions, and our experience has been that it is five star quality all of the way. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and very welcoming, and the views of the river are memorable. The food matches the reputation of the Inn for high quality also! We have always been greeted with professional and... More

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Bavarian Inn! Some of the highlights were eating at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant, and swimming in the Infinity Pool that overlooks the Potomac River. You are transported to a small German village with the beautiful buildings and grounds. We also enjoyed day trips to Antietam National Park, Harper's Ferry, and... More

While the restaurant is worth of a visit, the actual hotel is NOT. As soon as you walk in the front door you're assaulted by the powerful smell of urine. It's been that way every time we've been there over the past 15 years. We used to stay at the hotel while in town for the Contemporary American Theater Festival,... More

The Bavarian Inn is a charming stop. Our room was very nice with an awesome view overlooking the Potomac River but what was our favorite about the Inn was the infinity pool with a full service bar. It is not a huge pool but it was not crowded when we there. At the pool we decided to get a pretzel... More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bavarian Inn. We stayed there specifically for the infinity pool and it's bird's eye view of the Potomac River. Wonderful! Room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We also enjoyed drinks and pub fare poolside. Tasty! Overall, an extremely pleasant visit.

We were a little apprehensive about spending the night in a place that you needed a jacket for dinner in the dining room. From the moment we stepped foot on the property, until we checked out we were attended to with style and grace. The environment is much more laid back than it appears.

Bavarian Inn is by far the best place to stay in or near Shepardstown. That said, it is not perfect, as the rooms are dated with heavy furniture and poor layout. The bath has two sinks separated by a door, but the door hits the person at the second sink when opened. Even worse, the space behind the second sink... More
