We love Bavarian inns like we love Bavarian donuts -- a lot (a lot lot lot). Hey, they're both satisfying and quite pleasant. The Bavarian Inn (164 Shepherd Grade Road, Shephardstown, W.V.), an hour and half from D.C., has a delectable Valentines package that includes lodging, champagne, breakfast and a dinner allowance.
The inn has a style reminiscent of a German chalet, with amazing views that overlook the Potomac River -- and it's less than half an hour away from the Hollywood Casino. #gambling!
For added swankiness, book a river view room, complete with a whirlpool bath and fireplace. The Valentine's package
includes a $50 voucher for dinner, a $15 voucher for breakfast and a bottle of bubbly placed in your room prior to your arrival.
Chocolate-covered strawberries ($12) or a fruit and cheese platter ($12.50) can be delivered to your room as well. Since it's the little things that matter, of course. That said, there's not a Bavarian donut in sight.
Rates are $195-$264, and the package is available from Friday, Feb. 10 through Sunday, Feb. 19. For reservations, call 304-876-2551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
