Beautiful setting, the views over the Potomac are wonderful. Great food options. The staff are terrific. Each staff member I encountered made sure all was going well while at the Bavarian Inn. Take a moment to head down to the Rathskeller, what a great German themed Pub. It was March so the weather was cool, the infinity pool was covered,...

I have been doing business with this establishment for over 15 years. I feel like part of the family. The food in the dining room is to die for, their Sunday brunch is fabulous. If you want an assortment of great food and a great place to stay at the same time all the rooms are beautiful. Hd tv ,...

Had a recent lunch with friends, our 2nd time there in the last few months. Service is very slow, lunch arrived about 35 minutes after the orders were placed. There were only a few other tables occupied at the time so they can't claim being busy. Chicken salad was poor- meat was very tough and did not taste fresh. Guess...

The Bavarian Inn is a lovely spot for a couples weekend. We stayed in a chalet room with a balcony overlooking the river. The room itself was a bit of a mixed bag. The carpet, furnishings, and decor (cheap travel posters) could use an upgrade. Shepherdstown offers a historic "Main Street" experience with a few funky shops, restaurants, and a...

We visited with another couple for a weekend getaway. Loved the setting on the river and the grounds were beautiful. Felt secluded and private. However, it is impossible NOT to hear what your neighbors are doing. From walking, to talking, to any and everything. We had dinner at the Rathskeller which was good. Breakfast the next morning in the main...

Seated in the basement Rathskeller. Great atmosphere. Heard the beer lost is great, but I brought my own bottle of wine, but they had a pretty goo wine list. I had the hangar steak special, but everyone in my party loved their meal. Definitely will come back!

It's the main Inn in a very small town on the Potomac. Several buildings with a German theme. We had the Presidential suite, which was very large, overlooking the river. Room had everything we needed and then some. Our balcony was off the entrance to our room, and not off of the room itself, so not very private and we...

We very much enjoyed our stay at this Inn!!! We had a room overlooking the river! Worth the little extra money. And we also stayed in winter and it was a wonderful stay!!! Having a fireplace in our room made it a very cosy experience!!

Stayed here mid-week the day after Valentines Day. Got price of room, dinner for two, and bottle of bubbly for $250. Room was nice with fireplace and view of Potomac. Romantic. Meal was enjoyable. Service and setting were better than food but we had a good time. Dropped by local Bavarian Bakery next morning for German breads and pastries. Yum!

A very pleasant lunch with Iva Armstrong, picturesque 40 minute drive from Frederick, MD. A very historic route through Braddock Heights, Middletown, Sharpsburg and across the Potomac River. Quiet college town with several interesting food venues. Classic German restaurant.. Give it a try, tasty with a noce atmosphere.
