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.

Attic Hideaway

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.

Yew Tree Cabin

Shaded by our 150 year old yew tree, the private porch overlooks the pool and down the point under the chinese elms.

Red Cedar Cabin

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.

  • Maximum Capacity: 4

Pine Tree Cabin

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.

Our b&b wedding weekend

5 on April 08, 2014

We spent out wedding weekend there with our closest friends. Bob and Tracy are one of a kind. They are so welcoming, fun, and easy to talk to. The views from everywhere on the propert are absolutely breath taking. It is definitely a weekend we will never forget.

Recommendation for a quiet and rustic retreat

This B&B has the kindest innkeepers! Bob and Tracy are friendly and helpful, but also good about not hovering too much. We enjoyed staying in one of the cabins, which had many amenities and a quaint, rustic feel.

Completely exceeded my expectations

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.

Island Serenity

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

An amazing, beautiful place with caring hosts!

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! :-)
