Nestled at the base of stunning Kachina Peak high above the European-style village of Taos Ski Valley, The Bavarian Lodge & Restaurant offers guests the comfort and charm of an authentic alpine ski alm amidst the majesty of New Mexico's storied Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This authentic warm and welcoming guesthouse, constructed of roughhewn wooden beams and native logs is opulently furnished with European antiques. Offering a variety of spring, summer and fall activities with winter ski-in/ski-out convenience while dispensing Old World hospitality. Spacious suites accommodate parties large and small, and the nationally acclaimed restaurant serves up Bavarian specialties on its sunny outdoor deck or in the cozy dining room. Choose among such offerings as Sauerbraten, Wienerschnitzel, or Käsespätzle, accompanied by a selection from our fine wine list or one of our specially imported beers from the Spaten Brewery in Munich. We also feature a full bar. For those who prefer a more American meal, we offer salads, sandwiches, and burgers. It's the perfect place to enjoy with your friends or meet new ones while you relax and kick back after hiking, biking or skiing. Don't miss our many special musical events, hosted farm to table sustainable dinners and out of this world stargazing evenings. Secluded but sociable, opulent yet casual, The Bavarian is a magical retreat that brings you a taste of the Bavarian Alps high up in the American Southwest.
