The current Executive Order does not allow our indoor recreational areas to be open at the hotel (Fun Center, Pools, Hot Tubs, Water Slides, Ratskeller).  Our restaurant, lounge, outdoor Biergarten with nightly entertainment, and outdoor Fun Center will be open for guests!  We are hopeful that the indoor restrictions will be lifted soon so guests can once again enjoy our amenities while practicing safe social distancing.


The Bavarian Inn Restaurant is open daily for limited capacity dining.  This includes Michigan on Main, Patio dining and all lower level retail shops as well.  We look forward to having you here to dine with us.

As we are able to welcome our guests back, we are committed to providing you with a safe and sanitary environment. Our leadership team is working closely with the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association to learn from some of the very best in our industry to redefine our cleanliness standards. We are also implementing 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 when the time is right to open.


  • Guests are required to wear a mask when entering the building and in all public areas including but not limited to, hallways, lobbies, retail shops, and fun center. We all need to protect each other.
