Oct. 15, 2014 - Frankenmuth, MI - Joining a select group of properties nationwide, the Bavarian Inn Lodge in Frankenmuth has received the 2014 Family Vacation Favorite award from Family Vacation Critic, a popular online resource for parents looking for a family-friendly place to spend a weekend or a longer vacation.

"We're thrilled to be recognized by Family Vacation Critic and its staff of inspectors as well as its legions of families who judge places to stay by the reactions of their own families," said Martha Zehnder Keller, Bavarian Inn Lodge vice president of sales and marketing. "We are a family business and have a pretty good handle on what families really want when they stay with us."

The Family Fun Center within the Lodge reflects that, with its host of video games, its 18-hole "Willy's Kingdom" mini-golf course - and its indoor water park, complete with three pools, two whirlpools and two swirling water slides.

The Lodge continues its focus on being family-friendly by providing a number of family suites so Mom and Dad can have a mini-vacation on their own, knowing the kids are safe in an adjoining room.
