In order to support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and complying with the MI Dept. of Health and Human Service mandate, the Bavarian Inn Restaurant will be closed for Dine-In service but is open for takeout options by calling 989-652-9941. All lower level Castle Shops are open as well!

The Bavarian Inn Lodge is open for guestrooms reservations, along with most amenities including all pools and hot tubs; the family fun center with arcade games, mini golf and the children’s play village; gift shops and coffee bar, and takeout & room service options for food and bar drinks. Both water slides remain closed at this time.

COVID19 cleaning protocols are in place and we are following MDHHS and local Health Department regulations regarding sanitation and occupancy. Please note, masks and proper social distancing will be required in all public areas.  Masks are to be worn over the nose and mouth – THIS IS A NON-NEGOTIABLE.

We are committed to providing you with a safe and sanitary environment. Our leadership team has worked closely with the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association to learn from some of the very best in our industry and redefine our cleanliness standards. We have also implemented guidelines in accordance to the CDC’s best practices. We are confident in our ability to provide safe enjoyable experiences for our guests and staff.

We look forward to seeing you in Frankenmuth soon!
