We visited here for our 20 year anniversary for a few days and it was wonderful! The location to downtown is perfect! The Black Walnut in is beautiful and peaceful! Peter and Lori are wonderful! They went out of their way to make us and our dogs feel welcome! We would love to come back sometime! Perfect place to stay while in Asheville!

What a delightful place! Peter and Lori, our hosts, were welcoming and warm, and their gracious manner made us feel right at home. We are boaters, and Peter regaled us with stories of his own cruising days. We loved the Sunshine Room, from which the comfortable window seat overlooks a perfect jewel of a garden. We arrived just in time for wine and delicious appetizers in good company on the porch, and Beth was so accommodating of our relatively late arrival, making sure we had everything we needed and were comfortably settled in. Next morning, we spent a delightful hour or so in the cool morning air walking through the neighborhood of elegant homes and lovely gardens, followed by a wonderful breakfast in the intimate setting of the Inn's dining room. We felt so wonderfully pampered throughout our stay, and we are definitely coming back. Thank you, Peter and Lori.

My husband and I just got back from spending 3 nights and 4 days in Asheville for our 10 year anniversary. We stayed at the Black Walnut B & B Inn which is beautiful. Peter and Lori do an amazing job running the B & B and you can tell that they really enjoy it. Our room was very clean and room service was great. The breakfast was scrumptious and we enjoyed the afternoon tea along with others staying at the B & B. I definitely recommend a stay at the Black Walnut if you are spending time in Asheville.

Stayed 4 days/nights. Reveled in the fabulous breakfasts in the mornings & tea time with hours devours in the evening. Please order the nightly cookies& milk--so good!!. Enjoyed the morning & evening conversations with peter, Lori, & beth, plus the other guests. Decor is second to none. Hosts suggested activities, eateries, & travel routes. It was very helpful. It was a trip of a lifetime to stay at this wonderful B&B.

Just got home last night from the Black Walnut Inn and our trip to Asheville. I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast but from the web site was hopeful that this would be a great experience. It was!! Loved our room, loved our hosts, and we met amazing, wonderful guests. The dining room was beautiful. I especially loved the picture window and the beautiful china and the food, of course. One of the highlights of each day was after noon tea or wine on the fabulous front porch. It turned out to be a gathering of some of the guests.I Plan to return!!

My husband and I spent a weekend here before the birth of our second child. Our room came with its own Christmas tree and garland. The food was delicious and plentiful!

After our second stay at the Black Walnut I couldn't wait to leave a review in the hopes that others out there might be able to experience the joy and comfort that we have during both our weekend getaways in Asheville, NC. From the moment you walk into the beautiful, warm home at the Walnut you know you're someplace special. The service is top notch, the rooms elegant and very clean and the food is just incredible. Daily tea time is such a treat that I wouldn't miss it for anything else. The staff serve great finger snacks and glasses of while while guests get a chance to talk about their journey's and local visits and Peter is usually there as well to make helpful suggestions about surrounding attractions, or just to enjoy the topic of the day with guests. We felt as welcome in the Black Walnut as we would have in any of our family homes and we can't wait to come back. Thank you so much!!!

This inn is absolutely beautiful. The owners are friendly and informative. The breakfasts are fabulous. The only complaint we have is that it will now be impossible to find another inn to match the quality of the Black Walnut Inn! Perfection. We plan a return visit in the near future. Phil and Linda

I return to this inn over and over because of the beauty of the home, the comfort and decor of the rooms, the absolutely wonderful breakfast courses, and the warmth and customer service of the innkeepers. Nothing negative I could possibly dream up to say... fabulous inn!
