This was our 20th year coming to the Bavarian Inn. We come here at least once maybe twice a year. There is so much to do at the Inn itself that you don't always have time to get out shopping at all the stores that are close by. There is so much to do for a family or just a couple. They have plenty of pools and indoor golf. A fun center for kids to enjoy and many places for adults to kick back and enjoy themselves to. The rooms are very well kept and the service there is excellent. They go out of there way to make your stay there enjoyable. We will keep coming back every year as long as we can. It is one trip that we look forward to every year. Wonderful vacation getaway!!!!!

Room Tip: We stay in a Honeymoon suite with a jacuzzi tub with a private balcony. Very private

This was our first stay at the Lodge. Everything was very nice from the service to the room. The pools are small but well kept. There is a very large arcade and even putt-putt golf. You will run out of time before you run out of things to do!

This place is truly fantastic! Very clean rooms. Beautiful setting. Very close to shopping. There is a very nice restaurant down stairs but we ate at the Bavarian Inn which is within walking distance across the covered bridge. The food was served family style with a Bavarian flavor. The wait and service staff there was excellent as was the staff at the lodge. Everyone was so friendly! My husband and I will not think twice about driving the 8+ hours from our home to visit Frankenmuth and stay at the Bavarian Inn Lodge again! Absolutely beautiful!!!!!

Room Tip: I am sure any room you choose would be of excellent quality!

This was our second visit to the Bavarian Inn. We had a fantastic time - again. It is a very nice resort. We loved the Bavarian theme. The new water slides were perfect for our growing family. I was able to watch the older boys on the slides while in the baby pool with our little one. The mini-golf is very well maintained and has incredible murals on the walls. The whole family had an awesome time in the huge arcade! I would definitely recommend this lodge for family vacations!

Room Tip: 2 adults and 3 children were a little cramped in a standard room. The roll-away bed took up most of the excess floor space.

Dear Nicole A.,

Thank you so much for your 2nd visit to the Lodge. So happy that the way we designed the two newest waterslides in Michigan worked well for your family. Judy Zehnder, the owner, intentionally designed the area so that younger siblings would still have a play pool to be active in while their older borthers or sisters played on the slides! Yeah... it worked!

We hope to have earned a future stay again in the future! Until we meet again...

With great appreciation!

My husband and I liked the fact that they had a quiet policy, so no one wasscreaming down the hallways or causingnoise in the middleof the night. The rooms were clean, and the staff very friendly. The restauranr downstairs was very good as well.
Our view was nice and the hotel islocated near a shopping area.
We would stay here again. Frankenmuth is a beautiful small town.

Room Tip: We had the king suite
