Discover Michigan's Own Slice of Bavaria

The state of Bavaria is located in southeastern Germany, on the border of Liechtenstein, Austria and the Czech Republic. It’s primarily known for its annual Oktoberfest beer festival, attended by people around the world for its culture, beer, and fun. Astoundingly, the Bavarian Inn Lodge, located in Frankenmuth, Michigan, has managed to capture the fun and authenticity of the real Bavaria so you don’t have far to go to experience a little of this unique culture for yourself.

For 30 years, the Bavarian Inn Lodge has been the destination of choice for Michigan-bound splendor-seekers. While there’s a ton to love, one of the lodge’s biggest selling points is that regardless of weather, you’re going to have something exciting and fun to do. This is because the Bavarian Inn features one of Michigan’s largest indoor water parks. Obviously, as a northern midwest state, the weather isn’t always going to be cooperative, but a stay at the Bavarian Inn gives you some much needed insurance. If it’s nice, you’ll enjoy the sterling surroundings of Frankenmuth, and if not, you’ll enjoy the unbridled joy of a huge indoor waterpark.

Once you arrive, you’re sure to be captivated by the elegant setting and hospitable staff who will welcome you to your stay at one of the lodge’s 360 European-themed guest rooms and suites. For those looking to get romantic, whirlpool suites are available, along with an adults-only pool if you’re looking for extra peace and quiet. Families, on the other hand, have a veritable cornucopia of things to do and see. The huge family fun center has two waterslides, three pools, two whirlpools, an indoor mini-golf course, and a two-story children's play village!

“Our goal since our beginning has been to make every stay positively memorable for each and every guest,” says Judy Zehnder Keller, Bavarian Inn Lodge Owner and President. “We’ve been proud to serve so many generations of families who return to stay with us, and look forward to always providing the best possible lodging experience.” Needless to say, your kids will be having the time of their lives.

Of course, the lodge isn’t just for couples and families. If you’re looking to host an event at the Bavarian, we’d like to commend you on your smart decision! Weddings, business meetings, and more are all held daily, and the professional staff will be happy to accommodate even the most unique request. “Business meeting and convention planners have named the Bavarian Inn Lodge a favorite for comfortable conference space, and the amenities that make for successful business events,” COO Jim Engel says.

If you’re thinking about doing another run-of-the-mill trip to the cabin, the Bavarian Inn Lodge suggests you think again. Come and experience the prestige, majesty, and fun that can only be found in Michigan’s own slice of Bavaria.
