Let me begin by saying what Bavarian Inn is not: It is not a 5-star resort.
The service is good, but it is not extensive. You are pretty much on your own in the various buildings. (Example: No one asked at check-in if I needed help with my bags.)
Bavarian Inn is a good solid, comfortable choice, with beautiful grounds and a perfect location for seeing Shepherdstown and other nearby sites like Antietam and Harpers Ferry.
I had wanted a "Riverview" (Potomac River) room, but those were booked so I was in a "Gardenview" which I thoroughly enjoyed. I found myself looking out the window (and balcony) often across the grounds to the original inn, admiring the setting. Very handsome indeed.
I could quibble about some little things--not enough convenient outlets for my electronic gadgets, for example--but that would distort my bottom line of an entirely enjoyable weekend in Shepherdstown.
I can easily recommend this property if you are looking for fair, reasonable prices, in a good, scenic, convenient location.
The restaurant was good too, but I will not review it at this time.More
