Bavarian Inn In ShepardsTown, W. VA Quiet Elegance, Great European and American Contemporary Dishes

Greystone Mansion originally built as a residence, now the main building and restaurant of the new Bavarian Inn.

AmericanPressTravelNews -Shepardstown, WV.-“Bob & Barb On the Road Again.” & “stopping to Smell the Roses.” We stopped over to the Bavarian Inn and WOW! This place offers so much for very reasonable prices. Over looking the Potomac River, near to the new bridge linking W.V. and MD., the first thing we noticed was the heated Infinity Pool.  The landscaping at this Inn is quite exceptional, all manner of lilies of every hue and variety, roses and a total cornucopia of perennials, and annuals set the quiet relaxed mood with the aromas you’d enjoy anywhere! Looking around you feel you are in a little Bavarian Village that the architecture exudes in the spires and European Tudor facia. The Inn was built in 1930 as a private residence. The famous Greystone Mansion was converted in 1962 to a country inn. The award winning Bavarian Inn is owned and hosted by a native born Bavarian from Munich, Asam & his Wife Carrol. Good hospitality and fine cuisine of the old and new continents is paramount to its world renowned success. There are 4-chalets that have 42 elegantly furnished state-rooms with balconies overlooking the Potomac River.  Total rooms today including convention facilities is 72..

Yes, this pool goes over the edge of the hill it sits on, this it is called an “Infinity Pool.” It over- looks the Potomac River and it was heated. We loved it as all the guests here do.
Our room replete with a grand view of the Potomac River and even a automatic gas fireplace. It hit 49-degrees so we used it too early morning!

www.americanpresstravelnews.com – July 3rd, Bob & Barb writing from home at our Goose Holler Farm/Ranch–This home was built in 1853 by Francis Smith Edwards. The property passes through several hands before it was sold to John A. Waterhouse in 1885. He transformed the home from a square Italian villa, into the current Queen Anne style by 1888. John Waterhouse’s wife took on a mortgage and opened the home as a Sanitarium, offering cures for those suffering from alcoholism, tobacco or drug addiction. They sold the home in 1898 to the Steam’s family. The Steams sold the home to the Fredonia Teachers College for student housing. It changed hands again until Jeff Peterson, and Maggie Bryan Peterson purchased the home approximately 14 years ago. They restored the home to it’s original beautiful condition turning it into an Inn. Jeffrey Peterson co-owner with Maggie Bryun Peterson said that “We didn’t so much take possession of the house, in a way, it took possession of us.” The house is really built-14-inches of solid brick, a turret room, porches all the way around most of the first floor, delightful sitting rooms and a library room, very large dining area and the rooms were commodious and  well appointed in a modern touch that blended with the antiques and early furniture. The breakfast meals were amazing! 

First of all, I/we love real coffee that tastes and smells like it. The Inn had it covered! All the morning dishes were tasty and exceptionally well conceived and prepared. Jeff Peterson is a perfectionist and it showed in everything he did. Turning down the beds, creating the meals with Maggie-we were mightily impressed. Nothing was taken for granted. We were in the town of Fredonia and the streets were laced with great stores and several restaurants. Our walk was punctuated by meeting a few of the locals who were all friendly and wanting to tell us tourists all about their lovely town, just up the road from Lake Erie!
