The Bavarian Inn is a great place to stay on the C&O Canal in Shepherdstown. It's not really a B&B, it's more of large inn. The rooms are fine, like any hotel of good quality. But the balconies overlooking the Potomac are a real treat. The river view is especially beautiful in the morning, with a nice sunrise. The folks... More

Yes, we knew there was road construction. What they didn't mention was the changing of the stone covering on the front of the building, right outside the hotel room. Not jack hammering for an hour, but an afternoon. Not jack hammering for one afternoon, but two, our entire stay. We had to shout in the room and could only avoid... More

Dear Valued Guest, I am so deeply sorry that the rennovations disturbed your stay, and can completely understand your frustration. We had a small window of a slower time to get this accomplished, and opted to make it happen for the benefit of the future of the Inn. Please feel free to contact me personally, and I will be happy... More

The room was lovely with a large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and shower. The view of the Potomac River was priceless. The staff was helpful and polite. Although the area has some construction going on and the inn is doing some maintenance work, it was not noisy and didn't bother us. The pool area was nice and you can order... More

I am sitting in my room at the Bavarian as I type this. We have stayed here many, many times. We drive down from Pennsylvania just to eat at their classic German restaurant. We arrived about 5 and were greeted quickly and courteously. Check-in was a breeze and I was assured that anything I needed was only a phone call... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay. The bathroom was large with a roomy shower and jacuzzi; the room nicely decorated and comfortable with wing chairs, sofa and coffee table. The small deck with table and chairs was the best feature, overlooking spectacular views of the winding Potomac River. We enjoyed the Ratskeller and had a delicious dinner on the patio. The... More

Although the Bavarian Inn is one of the best for comfort and dining, the 3 nights I spent there this month were very disappointing - there was no television. It seems they had a new Direct TV system installed a few months back, and NOTHING works. The front desk kept making comments about how the weather affected reception. For 3... More

Stay was just one night but wish it could have been longer. Everything about the property and the folks that make it work was perfect. I was warmly received even though the front desk was quite busy. My room (81) was superb, the decor definitely upscale and my "Garden View" room included a slightly obscured view of the Potomac. All... More

The Inn is conveniently located between Antietam Civil War battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD, Harpers Ferry, and the casino/race track at Charles Town. We had a pleasant two night stay with excellent breakfast and evening meals. The food was upscale, both in atmosphere and quality --- and at a reasonable price. We will return. Jack & Kathy

Being only a little more than an hour from Washington DC, this gem provides a convenient getaway. The service was friendly; the room was big with a great view of the river; the bathroom was also large with a double sink, shower and jacuzzi.

The Bavarian Inn is a great place. It's close to historical sight seeing: Antietam Battlefield and Harper's Ferry. It's always clean and comfy, and the staff is friendly and polite. You can't go wrong in any of the rooms, you can have either a view of the Potomac River or the Inn's spectacular garden which is lit up at night.... More
