For 35 years Frankenmuth's Bavarian Inn Lodge has offered hospitality in old-world setting
By: Bavarian Inn
This month, and continuing throughout the year, the Lodge is observing its 35th anniversary of providing old-world hospitality in a fun and family-friendly atmosphere with its 350 employees.
To help celebrate the 35th anniversary, the Lodge is offering guests $35 off the standard rack rate for an overnight stay on most Sunday through Thursday nights during the month of February. The offer applies to all room types, for any number of mid-week nights, but does excludes Feb. 14-15.
Throughout the 2020 health pandemic the entire Lodge team worked to offer a safe and fun place for guests. During that time, the Lodge developed extensive health and cleanliness protocols.
Since its opening, the Lodge has completed seven major property projects, investing millions in the Frankenmuth community. Starting out with 100 guest rooms in 1986, the Lodge now encompasses 360 European-themed guest rooms, including whirlpool and family suites. Extensive upgrades have improved the rooms over the past five years as well.
A single swimming pool back in 1986 (which is now reserved for adult guests only) the Lodge has grown to become one of Michigan's largest indoor water park hotels with the expansive Family Fun Center, housing two dramatic waterslides, three pools and two whirlpools.
The Lodge – situated on seven acres of lush lawns – has become a popular central destination for a variety of family events, such as weddings, reunions and weekend getaways. It has hosted over 2,200 weddings in its 35 years and been visited by U.S. presidents and other national and international dignitaries.
Business meeting and convention planners have named the Lodge a favorite comfortable conference space, with the amenities that make for successful business events from 2-500 people. The Lodge has logged more than 2.4 million room-nights since its opening and has continuously earned a top rating on TripAdvisor®
"From the very beginning it was our goal to ensure every stay was memorable for each and every one of our guests," says Bavarian Inn Lodge President and Owner Judy Zehnder Keller. "Over this past year we have been challenged, like so many businesses in Michigan, to operate safely and effectively without missing a beat when it comes to serving our guests.
