The Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast offers a perfect getaway in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. The inn offers the timeless treasures of a totally renovated circa-1800 farm manor combined with contemporary amenities including WiFi, in-room flat screen HDTV’s, and private bathrooms. The Finger Lakes area is famous for its numerous upscale wineries, waterfalls and gorges, the eleven finger lakes, and interesting towns and villages to explore. We are located directly on the Cayuga Wine Trail, and we're only a short walk from the popular Americana Winery & Crystal Lake Cafe. Historic downtown Trumansburg is a 2-mile drive, and Taughannock Falls (215'drop) is a 5 minute drive away. Ithaca and its colleges are a short 20 minute drive away using the Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway. Visit us at the Black Walnut and explore the Finger Lakes from its heart.

This was my 1st experience with a B&B, it was pleasant, comfortable, great location, the inn keeper Jack was very hospitable & knowledgeable about places to dine& the wineries. My husband & I would stay here again; oh & breakfast was very delicious.

Recently spent 2 nights at the Black Walnut Inn, and found it extremely pleasant and welcoming. The Owasca(?) room was spotless, with comfortable bedding and brand new looking bathroom fixtures. The home is decorated to reflect its age, without a lot of ruffles or doilies! Jack was a great host, giving us lots of info about the area and preparing filling but not overly extravagant (I say that in a good way) breakfasts. The yard and gardens are full of beautiful flowers and vegetables. Yes, it is very close to the road, but not too busy and with the fans on at night we had no problem sleeping well. Overall we would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Ithaca area.

A friend and I spend such a relaxing and memorable visit at the Black Walnut B&B. We were welcomed warmly, despite last-minute reservations and late arrival, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The B&B is SO cute and comfortable!

We had such an enjoyable time at the Black Walnut B & B. This place is a hidden jewel, with clean and newly rennovated accomodations. Jack Moore was incredibly hospitable and helpful and made sure we were situated comfortably. Breakfast the next morning was delicious! The meal was very fresh as they use some of the produce from their garden. The owners provided us with great restaurant recommendations, as well as helpful driving information. I would most definitely recommend this B & B to anyone who is in that area!
