Old World Charm with Modern Day Options!
Unforgettable! Words cannot express how impressed we were with the Bavarian Inn Lodge team for providing us with a wedding experience that exceeded ALL our expectations. From planning to execution, they were there to make every step easy. And the food!!! Can’t say enough about the food. Location…being in the heart of downtown Frankenmuth there was always something for our guests to do throughout the weekend when they weren’t enjoying the amenities at the Lodge. We had our pictures taken around the Lodge property and the Wooden Covered Bridge, absolutely beautiful. Being able to stay overnight right there at the Lodge and then going downstairs for brunch on Sunday was beyond convenient. The Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn Lodge is a one-stop shop for everything! We highly recommend it to all!

Not to be “cliche” and use the “Dream Come True” Wedding Day quote but it is the exact description of our Ceremony and Reception thanks to the staff and Bethany, to whom we described the vision of our perfect day in just a few phone calls from 2000 miles away and she brought it all together, down to the smallest details, the personal and attentive service from Matt, during our ceremony and dinner reception where the staff went above and beyond to bring our guests that needed assistance, their “Delicious” dinner. The comments from all of our guest was “This is one of the nicest weddings we have been to in a long time and the staff was so friendly.” An added surprise was the personal “Congratulations” from Judy Zehnder before the ceremony and her personal Greeting to our guests at the reception. Do not think twice about sharing your special day with the wonderful people at the Bavarian Inn.

I am still getting complements on how amazing our wedding was and how great the food was! The staff was so attentive. We truly felt like royalty on our wedding day. I cannot say enough good things about our stay and our wedding there. My mother in law already gave you a 5 star review in the Trip Advisor. We are owners of multiple businesses and we know how much time and effort it takes to pull off something like this seamlessly. You and your staff did it though. We cannot thank you enough. Frankenmuth has always been special to us but now the Bavarian Inn Lodge is too! Sincerely,
-Steven and Koula (Christi) Stoll
Our friends were getting married at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. It was a wonderful experience. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was an absolute pleasure. We will definitely stay again and would recommend it to others. Most impressive was how an actual member of the family that owns the lodge personally welcomed us at the reception and was there to oversee that every thing went well. Class act.

“Wedding Venue” – My husband and I were guests at the Bavarian Inn lodge while attending a wedding reception. The service, venue and food were absolutely first rate. Old fashioned personal service , excellent food and comfortable rooms are hallmarks of the Bavaraian Inn. I would much rather stay here than any big chain hotel!
I would recommend them to families with young children as well as older couples looking for quality and comfort.

We had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Bavarian Inn. They were very professional and communication was great during all of the planning. All of our guests loved the hotel and many of them made a vacation out of their stay. We were very happy with our Christmas wedding!

We booked the Bavarian Inn Lodge for my son’s wedding. Even though we live 2 hours away, the Lodge took care of all the details of the wedding. They recommended vendors for us and they turned out to be great!! Chris was our wedding coordinator (works for the Lodge) and was excellent!!!! We really felt pampered and important. The wedding was awesome!!!! People loved it!!! They took care of our every need. Very accommodating!!! I would absolutely recommend having a wedding, party, etc. here!!!!
