“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

This was our third visit to the Bavarin Inn and it won't be our last! The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The restaurant is fabulous and the room is comfortable and romantic. I highly reccomend ordering the fruit and cheese plate and chocolate covered strawberries in the room! The plates are both beautiful and delicious. All thier meals are amazing and they frequently have getaway packages that include meal vouchers for the restaurant.

Room Tip: The corner graden view has the gas fireplace and juccuzi just like the luxury river view but is not...

We stayed in our favorite Bavarian Inn this weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. The Inn and food was exceptional as usual and is one of the few facilities that we can fully relax in and feel totally welcome by the staff. The area surrounding Shepardstown provide significant activities to attend and view. This weekend was a booksigning in Boonsboro, MD, by the popular author Nora Roberts, one of our favorite authors. We are looking forward to our next visit to the Bavarian Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms viewing the Potomac river in the Chalets are quite nice

We spent my mom's birthday weekend, and the Luxury River View rooms ( we had two of them) were perfect for our ladies' weekend. The rooms were comfortable & clean & the view & balcony were good. It was very quiet here - I'm used to the sound of other rooms' doors opening and closing and the water running, and there was none of that. There were three of us in each room, and at check-in, the sleepsofas had been made up for us. That was great, but if they knew we had three in each room, we wondered why there were only two coffee mugs per room. One room had both regular and decaf coffee (but only one pack of each) but only two creamers; the other room had only a pack of decaf and four creamers. Didn't make sense. I would stay here again, though, especially in warm weather when we could enjoy the balcony. See my separate review of the restaurant.

The resort is OUTSTANDING!!! The food is of such a quality that it cannot be compared to anything else. The rooms are the most incredible that one could ever even desire for. This is the end all location where one gets the best of the best in every sense of the word!!! Don't even hesitate to book here. P.S. The little town of Shepherdsville is very cozy. Please venture out.

Room Tip: Any room with a view of the river as well as a fireplace and hot tub.

A great old world dining and lodging experience overlooking the Potomac River. Our deluxe room in one of the chalets was beautifully appointed with a fireplace that really heated the room and a luxurious jacuzzi tub. We had dinner in the dining room (the Ratskeller has the same menu but is more casual) with a menu featuring both American and German specialties. Dinner was delicious and the service excellent. Breakfast was equally good with a great menu. Service in the hotel is friendly and professional.

Room Tip: Get a room in one of the chalets.

We stayed in winter. We had the river view rooms, which was very nicely appointed, with apples waiting for us. Would be a better stay in the summer, when you could use the balcony, tennis court, etc.

The only negative was that to get to the rooms you have to go through a pretty dingy corridor, a real contrast to the nice interior of the room itself.

So my husband and I were going to do some rafting and hiking in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. While we love being in the field getting dirty all day, we want an upscale hotel with all the amenities for night. It appeared the options were limited and I settled on the Bavarian Inn in Sheperdstown. My first impression when we arrived was that we wandered into the Swiss Alps and Heidi or Pippi or someone with clogs would be wandereing the grounds. The check in room was musty with old decorations. I started apologizing to my husband . But when we went to our room, I felt I was in a luxurious, modern hotel, big, comfortable bed , flat screen tv, up to date and sizeable bathroom with a balcony overlooking the Potomac. Could not have asked for anything more. Dont be fooled by bavarian theme outside, would absolutely stay here again.
