The Bavarian Inn Lodge feels like home to me! Several times a year, my daughter and I take a "Girls Getaway" trip to Frankenmuth. The only place I would EVER consider staying at in Frankenmuth is the Bavarian Inn Lodge. From the time you enter the lobby until you wave goodbye to another WONDERFUL adventure, you are always guaranteed to have courteous, friendly, knowledgeable staff that add so much to giving one that "homey" feeling. Without leaving the building, you can dine, shop, zoom down water slides, play miniature golf, swim, luxuriate in a hot tub, play arcade games, and just plain relax on one of their very comfy beds! I can't wait to go again! You would really enjoy your stay at the Bavarian Inn Lodge too! I highly recommend this lodge to all!

Room Tip: Every room provides optimum comfort!

This place is awesome, especially if you like chicken! The meals in the area are loaded, so you may wish to split a chicken dinner instead of having a ton, I mean a ton, of leftovers that you wish you could keep eating but can't! From the quaint village, brew pub, tourist atmosphere to the authentic German cooking, Bavarian architecture and really nice attendants, you'll feel like you just entered a little village in German or middle Europe somewhere with all that it has to offer. There's a covered bridge built without nails, shops with authentic gifts and trinkets and down the road, there is the largest Christmas store you will ever visit - Bonner's. Lots of charm, lots of grace, lots of wholesome atmosphere and fun!

Room Tip: There are rooms with a view of the river that are probably the most desirable.

We stayed at the Bavarian Inn for Black Friday weekend. It was very close to everything that we wanted to do that weekend, including the Candlewalk at the River Place Shops and tree lighting ceremony. We liked that the hotel gave us a coupon book for all the local businesses so we saved money that way.

The room we had was very spacious because we ended up with a corner room near the courtyard entrance. We enjoyed the adult only swimming pool as the everyone pool was packed with kids.

The only downside to the hotel was the elevator malfunctioning near the lobby, which was especially bothersome at 10am on Sunday morning (when everyone was checking out). Luckily we were only on the second floor so we took the stairs.

Overall, a great hotel with a great location and we definitely will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room if available

Dear Karen Sue,

Thanks so much for staying with us on the Holiday weekend. So sorry for one of our 5 guestroom elevators having challenges. So happy you started the CHRISTmas season with us at the Lighting ceremony. I too was in attendance and felt so happy singing Christmas Carols with several thousand other people - great way to start the season. We hope to serve you and your family for generations to come!

Sincerely,

Jim Engel, C.O.O.

P.S. I took photos of the lighting ceremony and shared on the Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn Lodge Facebook page. In case you want to share your experience with family or friends!

My family and I go every year, well kept, friendly, and if you don't even need to leave the lodge, they have it all. Pools, hot tubs, indoor golf, games, shopping and restaurants. The staff is the best around, all pleasant and willing to help.

The family and I had a wonderful stay at the Bavarian Inn, we loved the pool, water slide and the arcade. Our breakfast was great, and service was superb. Will visit again in the Summer, We went at the end of November to enjoy the Christmas decorations. Thanks for the great experience.
