Owner of East Durham's Furlongs takes over Purling's Bavarian Manor

Dec 28, 2022 12:45 pm

Andrea Macko reports in Porcupine Soup that the Bavarian Manor Country Inn in Purling is now under new management. “For the past 91 years patrons, friends and family have come to the Bavarian Manor making memories that have spanned multiple generations,” now former owner Stan Oldakowski said in a statement on behalf of the Bauer-Oldakowski families. Restauranteur Garrett Doyle, who also purchased the East Durham landmark Furlongs, now Five Furlongs Tavern, on State Route 145 in 2021, is the new owner of the Bavarian Manor Country Inn. “The hotel will continue in capable hands with new energy,” Oldakowski said. Oldakowski's wife Suzanne Bauer-Oldakowski passed away in 2017. Her grandparents, Karl and Anna Bauer, from Bavaria, Germany, bought the property in 1931. Her parents, William and Johanna Bauer, also ran the 80-seat restaurant and 18-room hotel. Macko writes, "According to Five Furlongs Tavern, the cuisine at Bavarian Manor is staying German and a menu is forthcoming. A soft opening is slated for Friday, December 30 starting at 3 p.m. with cocktails, appetizers, and music. Rooms are already available for booking." The story does not say how much the restaurant and hotel were sold for. Read the full story in Porcupine Soup.
