The Bavarian Inn is spectacular. We saw the ad in the America Woche. We drove just under 250 miles down from New Jersey to spend a couple of days at the spectacular Bavarian Inn, in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. About half the reason was the promise of great German food, combined with the spectacular view of the Potomac River the other...

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay close to the C&O trail so the Bavarian Inn popped up on our searches. We were not disappointed in our stay. We arrived after 9 pm and the restaurant had just closed and the manager couldn't do enough to make sure we could get something to eat for dinner....

The first ten years of our marriage were spent in Germany - 7 in Bavaria. We have thoroughly enjoyed our getaway. We were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a lovely handwritten note. Our room was lovely with a nice view over the river. Best of all, the food has reminded us of how much we enjoyed Germany. Thank...

My husband and I stayed in one of the suites. We had a "private" balcony that wasn't very private at all, really, but had a fantastic view of the Potomac. The grounds are well kept and the staff was courteous. We very much enjoyed the whirlpool and fruit & cheese platter waiting for us upon arrival. We also did have...

We are retired military and have traveled all over the World. This place was dirty and NOT worth the money. What a disappointment. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! TRASH in the hallway, trash in the room, and dust on the picture/mirror frames. DO NOT STAY HERE-NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!!!!!

This was a business seminar with 80+ people. So all meals were buffet style. The food was excellent from breakfast, lunch, & afternoon treats. The desserts were to die for. The servers were very courtesy and picked up after all of us throughout the day. I would highly recommend for anyone planning an event to have at The Bavarian Inn.

We stayed here one night on a Friday in March. All of the buildings have a Bavarian theme externally. Also, they abut the Potomac River and its gorge. The buildings are very near the bridge spanning the gorge that leads into Shepherdstown, so there is some road noise from that bridge that is noticeable even with the windows closed. We...
