Black Walnut Point Inn is located at the end of Tilghman Island on 58 acres of a waterfront wildlife sanctuary. Our own six-acre island at the end of the point, you can watch the sunrise over the Choptank River and set over the Chesapeake Bay. Both the 1840s house and private luxury cabins are open year-round, and every accommodation has endless water views and private baths. Enjoy the pool, hot tub, bird watching, fishing or just relaxing with a good book. If you enjoy nature or need a private retreat, come to the Black Walnut Point Inn - the secret place of peace.
Largest room in the house with a private staircase. Features picture windows facing south overlooking the pool and the end of the point. Has a kingsize bed, daybed and chaiselounge for relaxing or reading under the room's hand-hewn black walnut beams. One of the Inn's most requested rooms.

At the top of our quirky staircase on the third floor, our hideaway is reminiscent of a boat cabin with built in chests either side of the chimney. One gable looks down the Bay to south, the other provides a bird's-eye view of the sanctuary and back cove. With a separate bath en-suite, the queen futon in the top hall provides its own gabled views for a quiet nook to read, or it can sleep two extra people.
Nightly Rate: $120 - $150
Shaded by our 150 year old yew tree, the private porch overlooks the pool and down the point under the chinese elms.

The fireplace keeps out the chill, and all cabins are air-conditioned and have TVs VCRs and DVD players.
Nightly Rate: $280 - $350
Like all of our cabins, Red Cedar is aromatically paneled with knotty pine and has its own screened-in porch. Also with a full kitchen, fireplace and TV, Red Cedar's windows overlook the Choptank so you don't even have to get out of the king bed to view miles of open water.
Nightly Rate: $280 - $350
Pine Tree Cabin is fully handicap accessible with a ramp and seated shower in the enlarged bath. Closest to the parking lot and back cove, two comfy rocking chairs face the fireplace and TV. The screened-in porch is closest to the water, and provides the best view of the sunrise over Bar Neck and the Choptank.
Nightly Rate: $280 - $350

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 !!!

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.

I stayed here with my boo Sun July 27 - 29 in the Tilghman room. It was one of the best experiences of our life¿ I still have pleasant flashbacks of sleeping on the hammock with the relaxing sound of the wonderful Chesapeake Bay. Bob and Tracy are the best hosts I have every come across. They make you feel like family and are very genuine. The hospitality is unparalleled. The views and grounds are amazing.

This is the place if you want a peaceful and relaxing B&B. The grounds were lovely, the views were breathtaking and the innkeepers were accommodating. There were plenty of hammocks and chairs on the grounds. The pool was clean and refreshing.

Black Walnut Point is a magical place: at the tip of Tilghman Island, it is wedged between the Choptank River and Chesapeake Bay. It is also a bird sanctuary, with swallows, ospreys, even eagles. It is quiet. The rooms vary (our Attic had low ceilings), but the two-course breakfasts, with good strong coffee, were all delicious. You can loll about in armchairs and hammocks by the pool, gaze out onto the expanse of sky and water, or relax in the common rooms. It is truly restful.
