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.
Large and airy with five windows overlooking the point to the south, the west bulkhead and northern bird sanctuary. The Bay Room lives up to its name with sweeping views of sunsets over the Chesapeake. Accommodations include a queen bed, daybed and reading corner with two rocking chairs.
The Talbot Room is sunken and has a cathedral ceiling, with two steps down and two steps up into the private bath. Two look-out windows overlook the point with a reading area underneath. An antique dresser and large hope chest provide plenty of room for luggage, with extra room to relax on the daybed by the large window under the front holly.
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.
Shaded by our 150 year old yew tree, the private porch overlooks the pool and down the point under the chinese elms. With a full kitchen, separate bath and king bed, all windows face an uncompromised view of the broad mouth of the Choptank River. The fireplace keeps out the chill, and all cabins are air-conditioned and have TVs VCRs and DVD players.
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.
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.

My boyfriend and I came to Black Walnut for a belated Valentine's celebration. I had no idea what to expect-- only knew it was at the very tip of Tilghman Island and it had gotten a lot of positive reviews from previous guests so we jumped right in. I'm so glad we did!! I'll break up my comment into a few main categories: Bob and Tracy: Cannot say enough about these guys. They made me feel like family after being there for less than 24 hours. Bob even shared some of his family's exclusive Dandelion Wine with only one bottle remaining. Tracy is an absolute hoot. They are GREAT hosts and fantastic cooks. We had souffle, french toast, pancakes for breakfast and it was absolutely delicious Room: Room was clean and cute. The bathroom was tiny but also wasn't paying for the most expensive room so wasn't a big deal Location: You are in the middle of nowhere. Bring wine!! We ended up driving into St. Michaels one day and came back to play scrabble, drink and eat cheese and crackers. It was the middle of Feb when we went so weren't able to take advantage of some of the ammenities available during prime season but didn't matter. Not many places close by to go for dinner but we got by Will definitely be coming back and definitely recommending this place to friends. P.S. I am 27 years old. Assumed me and my boyfriend would be the youngest people there but 4 of the 5 couples were around our age.

Wanna get away from it all? Black Walnut Point is that place. Crossing the Knapp's Narrows drawbridge brings one back to a simpler, slower lifestyle. Our hosts, Bob and Tracy, were most pleasant and very unobtrusive. We had the run of the house and property and really only encountered the other guests at our homemade breakfasts. A sumptuous feast required a walk along the waterfront or perhaps a nap in the sunroom. The Bay Room provided a view of the Chesapeake Bay and Choptank River from almost every window. Greeting us one morning was the resident bald eagle who no doubt was seeking his invitation for fresh berry pancakes. I highly recommend Black Walnut Point B&B for its restful properties. Andy

The location is the nicest we've ever seen, surrounded by water. It feels like it's at the end of the earth, with the noisest things being the surf and the birds. Peaceful, serene, lovely. Yet a friendly, quaint fishing village, with some awesome eateries, is just minutes down the road. Our room was very comfortable, with an amazing array of windows to let in the gorgeous view, especially considering this is an old (historical!) farmhouse. Bob and Tracy took great care of us and fed us a king's breakfast. We had a WONDERFUL time at Black Walnut Point B&B! We'll be back, for a longer stay next time. :-) Suggestion: Plan to arrive before nightfall the first time. It's really ALL the way down the island! :-)

Took my wife to the Inn for a winter getaway and got so much out of the trip. We arrived late but Bob was there to welcome us and help us with our luggage. As I stepped out of our car and looked up I saw more stars than I can ever remember seeing. We came inside to find out we were the only guests that braved the weather to make it out to the island. It was awesome to have the whole house to ourselves. My wife and I kept saying it felt like home. The next morning we were welcomed by Traci (Bob's husband). He too was warm and inviting. They both made the visit memorable. In a word our stay was incredible. What else do I need to say the place is surrounded on three sides by the Chesapeake Bay. You catch sunrise in the windows on one side of your room and then sunset on the other. The Inn is smack dab in the middle of a bird sanctuary. Wildlife and the beauty of nature surround you. One of our favorite aspects of the entire place was just how spiritually healing a place this was. They say the people that end up visiting the Inn are there for a reason. It's a spiritual place to reconnect. My wife and I have visited many bed and breakfasts around the mid-Atlantic; from Jersey to Maryland, and this is by far one of our absolute favorites. If you really need to get away and let your mind and spirit relax this is the place for you. Don't miss out on the people and atmosphere of Tilghman Island and its crown jewel the Black Walnut Point Inn.
