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!
German themed restaurant replete with all the fixings, wait-staff and Schnitzels!
Authentic German dishes like this Schnitzel that was Gutt N zophtic!

Keys Real Estate and Rental Group Trying to Assist After Irma

Los Cayos=(Those Bones) as the Spanish called the Keys Hundreds of years ago!

AmericanPressTravelNews.com-October 1st-Islamorada, FL. Keys–Recently the whole world viewed and anguished over a natural weather and earth set of disasters-namely hurricanes and earthquakes. One hard hit area-the Florida Keys took it on the chin with winds and surges, before Irma headed for the rest of FL., Keys residents received nearly as hard a hit, as the area ever had. Yes, there have been worse storms and far more deaths, as in the 1935 Labor Day disaster that even blew a train off the tracks that linked mainland Florida with all the habitable islands in the Keys chain-over 500 people died in that one. Irma pummeled Puerto Rico, then Harvey slammed a left and right punch, and nearly finished this country of 3.5-million off, which probably will never recover fully.

Taking into consideration there is a need for housing, as so many homes and apartments were damaged and are uninhabitable, at least one group in the small town of Islamorada and surrounding Keys; Coastal Vacation Rentals of The Florida Keys is trying to match locals,  residents and would-be visitors with clean, livable rentals as a bridge, or permanently  for their needs and quiet peace and enjoyment of their lives. David at Coastal Vacation Rentals is doing just that!   I asked David (yes, he’s my son) if he has has weekly, monthly and yearly rentals from traditional island homes and apartments, to some of those local swank homes available as vacation abodes for the highly discriminating vacationers, both Bayside or Oceanside, and inland as well?  Dave told me that “if we don’t have what locals and visitors are in need of, we will find it for them”  David has called Keys home of 40-years. After leaving for military service, he is now transitioning back to the Keys full time, and is working with Coastal Vacation Rentals of the FL Keys. One of his major specialties in the Military was Logistics. Generals and Colonels relied on David and his crews to “gettin er done.” And he never let them down. He is bringing his strengths in Logistics to doing this too, as far as getting it done, for whoever works with him and his team in the keys, as well.

In the military, he knows how to make it happen in disaster, or during quiet times too!. So finding the rental of house, boat and offering full concierge services is a cake-walk for him. Sure I am his father, and who better knows what his son is capable of? I’m sure after Irma’s visit and the fact that he was brought up in the Florida Keys, he knows the ins and outs of the Upper Keys, and has a tremendous support group of others, also brought up in the fabulous Florida Keys, just a keystroke away from helping him, making it happen.  While Hurricane Irma has taken out some of the resorts, David spent time before and after the latest natural disaster both for Keys Emergency Management needs and tourism housing there. It would be is a great opportunity for anyone working with David to hit a homerun in finding whatever their needs are in The keys this year. Be assured the Keys will be more desirable this winter then ever.  Less people, more fish and  perfect, personalized service. NOTE: CURRENTLY DAVID IS DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT FOR THE UNITED STATE AIR FORCE!
