This trip was an impromptu get-a-way from urban life in DC. From the moment we arrived, Bob and Tracey were nothing but amazing!!! They were extremely friendly, welcoming and did everything they could to make the stay amazing for my partner and I. I would HIGHLY recommend Black Walnut Point Inn and will be going back VERY SOON.

Exceeded ALL expectations

My partner and I were looking for a quick getaway from our nation's capital and found this hidden gem in Tilghman, MD, that exceeded both of our expectations. Bob and Tracy were accommodating and caring. Both took time to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The grounds are gorgeous, the scenery is peaceful and we will most certainly be returning for a longer weekend in the very near future.

There is no other B&B to compare!

You simply have to come to the BWPI to fully experience what Bob and Tracy have to offer. It is so much more than a place to sleep. Open your mind and soul to discovery as only Tracy can tell it. You will not be disappointed. We are looking forward to our wedding here in 2015. Cant wait!

Beautiful, peaceful setting at the southern tip of Tilghman Island, so there was water on three sides, which meant seeing both sunsets and sunrises. Very gracious hosts and good food. Highly recommend.

Our stay was supposed to be for two nights in the Pine Tree Cabin. We couldn't leave. Warm, cozy , inviting. Beautiful sunsets and peaceful setting to clear your mind & soul. Cant' wait for next visit. Thank you Tracy & Bob. It was exactly what we needed. Barb & Mark

Best Wedding Venue ever

Spend the weekend with family at a wedding. Beautiful property and "campy" so laid back and relaxing. Woke to gorgeous sunrises and ended the day with beautiful sunsets. Amazing stars in the dark skies. The views were fantastic. The hosts were gracious and really led the way through the weekend from a rehearsal dinner BBQ to the actual wedding day festivities. This is the way to do a wedding... and Bob and Tracey are the guys you want to show you how !!!

It doesn't get much better than this for a very peaceful get-away. You won't be disappointed.

Peaceful weekend

3.0 on August 25, 2014

A lovely place to spend a romantic and peaceful weekend if you love being surrounded by water, birds and nature. The hosts are very helpful and friendly. Close enough to small towns to explore great restaurants, boating and just to walk around.
