Outdoor Recreation

Shepherdstown and Jefferson County West Virginia are filled with outdoor recreation opportunities. As you approach the area you may be surprised to see the amount of visitors and locals running, cycling, kayaking and canoeing. Recreation is so prevalent in our area that many have dubbed Shepherdstown the "Boulder Colorado of the East Coast". The Inn is located just across the bridge from the C&O Canal Towpath which offers several hundred mile bike trail from Washington DC to Pittsburgh. Many guests stay with us each summer as they make the complete ride from city to city. However a complete through ride is not required, it's the perfect spot for an afternoon ride, walk or run. There are also many hiking opportunities locally including the Appalachian Trail that is only 10 minutes from the Inn.

Infinity 101 Pool Bar and Restaurant at Bavarian Inn

The cascading edge of the pool dangles exactly 101 feet above the Potomac River edge. Sit back, relax, and take in the view as the river winds its way through the valley towards DC and the Chesapeake. Let us know if there is any way we can make you more comfortable.

Cheers and we hope you enjoy your day in the sun! Click here to view the menu.
