My husband and I stayed at the Black Walnut Point Inn for our anniversary, and I'm already thinking of making it an annual tradition. The place was beautiful, Bob and Tracy couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming, the food was excellent (and I am a big breakfast person), and the grounds were beautiful. We had a great time watching the birds, exploring the nature trail, and just sitting by the water with a good book. Definitely book an in-room massage with the Body Aware clinic as well. You won't regret it!

Absolutely wonderful

The inn and the surrounding property was absolutely gorgeous. Bob and Tracy were perfect hosts and the food was fresh and delicious.

My husband is not too keen on B&B so I only booked one night for our anniversary weekend as a compromise. OMG, we were both blown away by the peaceful and bucolic surroundings. We love it and can't stop telling our friends and family about it. We already booked our next stay. It is the best prescription for our stressful and hectic lifestyle. Thanks Bob and Tracy!

Wonderful B&B

The cabin was comfortable and tastefully rustic with a beautiful view and great porch. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The location is stunning with sweeping views of the Chesapeake on both sides. Innkeepers are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The landscaping is beautiful.

The only sounds are of birds, water and breezes. The perfect balance between attention and solitude from the wonderful hosts. Wonderful environment. River and bay all around. Peaceful, calm, restorative.

A Sanctuary

We were looking for a place to rest from health & work challenges and found it at the Black Walnut Point Inn. Owners Bob & Tracy were friendly, informative and entertaining. We found many areas in the Inn and on the grounds to rest, read, take long walks and enjoy nature. We plan to return soon.

Can't wait to return

This was such a great place! So quiet and relaxing. Loved watching the sun set and not hearing any traffic or noise. Skip St Michaels and head to Tilghman Island and stay at the Black Walnut Point B & B.

Piece of Heaven

My husband and I enjoyed our weekend stay at the Inn. Our hosts could not have been anymore inviting - it was like coming home to family even though this was our first time at the inn. The views are incredible and the ground are a great place to relax. We stayed in a cabin and had two very restful nights of sleep.

Couldn't be better!
