The Bavarian Manor Country Inn is a very well run operation. Everything was done efficiently and nicely to the utmost details, e.g. cleanliness, presentation. Staff was very accommodating. I would come back anytime. Food was great as well.

Simply perfect

It was the perfect place to have a short stay and we will be going back for a longer one. The service is outstanding: friendly, warm, and welcoming. Nestled within a quintessential hamlet, the environment is as comfortable and inviting as the staff. The food was excellent, and we took as many chances as we could to enjoy the deck reading and letting the rest of the world melt away. All in all, a fantastic experience.

Excellent experience

Very nice place that gives a feel of country living. Room are very well done with so many little artifacts all around (though they are a bit small). The food is excellent, service is good and the hosts are very friendly.

As my Austrian mother would have said: "Gemütlich"

4.0 on November 06, 2015

By American standards this place comes from the stone age (aka as the 19th century) and in part it shows. But for many this probably makes it attractive. It certainly has more charm and character compared to the many bland chains of hotels and motels that clutter the countryside. It's just not our personal preference and we wouldn’t want to stay for more than a couple of days (For example we don't think stuffed animal heads on the wall of the bar provide any particular ambiance and add nothing to the otherwise excellent German beer). Service was very friendly and relaxed, and the food in the restaurant certainly was much better than in many other American places that claim to offer German/Austrian style food - full marks to the kitchen staff. There's a nice porch at the front and side of the building, ideal to sit down for glass of cold Munich Weissbier after a long walk in summer.

charming weekend getaway

We found the Bavarian Manor to be a warm and personable Inn. The staff is, at once, efficient and engaging. I requested that a special floral arrangement be placed in our room, commemorating our wedding anniversary. The staff deftly interpreted my request, resulting in a stunning presentation from a local florist. The room was most comfortable and the restaurant charming. The personal attention and dedication to cleanliness are so welcoming. October is an opportune month to visit, with colorful foliage and spirited local activities and events.
