From the time I made reservations for my family to go to the Bavarian Inn Lodge for a quick getaway, to the time when we said, "Good Bye", we had a wonderfully relaxing time. Staff is uncommonly pleasant, proactive and attentive, concerned and responsive. The entire resort is so clean with every effort placed on the smallest details. Flowers and seasonal decor everywhere, a treat for the eyes. Their restaurants offer great value for the price and offer all the comforts of home. Staff very interactive with children and go the extra mile to treat them as cordially as the adults. Family atmosphere that places a high priority on values, courtesy and consideration for all guests. I highly recommend the Bavarian Inn!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room if possible, the view is spectacular, and rooms are a bit quieter away from the parking lots.

I live in Grand Blanc Michigan. It is only a 30-40 minute drive to Frankenmuth. My family and I have had the same room for the last 6 years for Snowfest. My Father has had the same room for 10 years or more as well. We count on Snowfest weekedn EVERY year as a great time to get together and the hotel has done nothing but improve the service and amenities every visit. My 10 year old is incredibly excited to try out the new waterslides this year and for many more to come. Thank you Bavarian in and their incredible staff!
Matt Williams and family

Room Tip: Look for a room closest to the type of pool you will be using, i.e. family or adult only!

Dear Matt W.

So glad you make the SHORT trek all the way from Grand Blanc with such tradition and anticipation! We are already talking about Snowfest internally as several of our staff are State Competition snow carvers and they are brainstorming their sculpture! We so appreciate your 10 years of loyalty and I hope you will ask for me upon your return. I have hopes of several hot air balloonists returning for fun flights that weekend over town also!

Until you return, yours in service...

Spur of the moment trip found the Inn in the JB shopper coupons. We called up great discount on the room when we mentioned the ad. My daughter is 20 and we had a blast in the game room and the pools. The customer service was awesome. Our room was clean and very quiet overlooking the adult pool. We meet some wonderful people in the pool areas from all over Michigan that make this Inn the place to stay several times a year. And now we know why. The shops are wonderful we ran out of time to enjoy the chicken dinner. But ther burger in the Ratskeller was delicious!!

Room Tip: Over looking the adult pool is a bit of a hike to the rest of the Inn but nice and private and very quiet.

Dear Pat L., So happy to hear you and your adult daughter enjoyed your stay and had fun with other hotel guests and shopping! We hope you can return in the future as so many "deer widows" will be doing in the weeks to come!

Thank you again!

I stayed at the Bavarian Inn Lodge on October 9 with my family, and had a great time. The room was nice, the service excellent and the Fun Center was great. The only negative was the fact that there were double beds instead of queens. Other than that, great place and I WILL be back again!

Room Tip: Chooe a river view.

We love Frankenmuth, it is such a nice get away. There is so much shopping and such good food and of course it is just a beautiful place. Did I forget Bronner's the biggest Christmas store ever. The Bavarian Inn is a wonderful place to stay, it is so clean and quiet and the staff is so friendly. They took such good care of our family, we had a toddler and our 90 year old aunt and they just couldn't have been nicer to all of us. There is something there for everyone with all the pools, and an adult pool and hot tub, the game room, and the restaurants. If you are traveling with family, or a romantic getaway, or with a group of friends, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Dear MarianneB.

I am so happy that you had a wonderful stay with what appears to potentially be 3 or 4 generations of our family! Our Dorothy Zehnder is 91 and still runs the Bavarian Inn Restaurant kitchen for over 64 years now! We are so proud of her and so glad your aunt enjoyed her stay. If she returns with you, we must arrange a meeting with Dorothy!

Thank you for staying with us!

Sincerely,

Jim Engel, COO
