Fun, Family Friendly Hotel in Frankenmuth, Michigan

Be Willy the Dragon’s personal guest and have tons of fun with the only Bavarian-themed indoor water park, a mega arcade, and an 18-hole indoor mini golf course, all available to you at Bavariann Inn Lodge.


We have four indoor pools, three whirlpools, and two water slides for overnight guests at the Lodge. If you’re looking for some kid-free time, don’t worry! One pool and whirlpool are reserved especially for adults without children. No two pools are alike! Please note the size requirements for our slides:

  • The Tower Twister Body Slide-Height requirement is 42”.
  • The Bavarian Blast Tube Slide-Height requirement is 48” or 42″ when riding with an adult.

Just beside the mini golf course is our pool with a 15-foot waterfall. There is also a toddler play pool for our littlest guests to enjoy with just 18″ of water and fountains.
