Loved the room and the views! Very comfortable with huge spa tub, lovely patio, fireplace overlooking the Potomac. Meals at the restaurant were delicious. Staff friendly and attentive. Best place to stay near Shepherdstown.

My husband and I just arrived home after a weekend at the Bavarian Inn. Truly couldn't be more thrilled to share our thoughts on it: 1) We chose a room with a view of the Potomac. What a treat. The room was spacious with a beautiful 4 poster bed, large bathroom with a whirlpool, gas fireplace, very nice decor, and...

The Bavarian Inn in Shephardstown is a unique place to stay. The rooms are fantastic and many have a bend of the Shenandoah river as a view They are large rooms some with fire places. Maybe all but we stayed in a villa building and not the Grand building. Which looks right out of Bavaria. The grounds are nice to...

Our good friends stayed at the Bavarian Inn for their honeymoon and raved about the accommodations and meals so my husband and I made reservations to celebrate our anniversary. Our room was lovely with a beautiful view of the Potomac river from our private balcony. Dinner in the dining room was delicious and our waiter, Tre, really rolled out the...

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I stayed at the Bavarian Inn in the Presidential Suite. We have stayed in some of the best hotels and inns around the country and nothing, I mean nothing, beats our experience there! The room was spectacular in it's spaciousness, elegance and amenities. We'd spend the evenings with a glass of wine...

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...
