Room was clean. Love how it was decorated. Unique fish tank above tub with jets. It was very quiet there. The food for breakfast both mornings was amazing and delivered to my door at time I requested. Would stay again. It was very relaxing!


Amazing Stay in Sturgeon Bay!

This was by far our favorite B&B we've been to. We really enjoyed all of the amenities, especially the homemade breakfasts and goodies, and the room itself was elegant and romantic! Highly recommended!!!


Fantastic!

What a great place! This was our second time visiting (stayed in the lovely Arts & Crafts room. The B&B is spotlessly clean, and everything is pretty much perfect. Gerry is a very welcoming hostess, the breakfasts are GREAT and delivered to your door, and the whirlpool tub is another nice touch. Can't say enough good things about the Black Walnut. We hope to return many more times!

My wife and I recently stayed in the Eastlake Room. Wow, what a great room! Clean and cozy and relaxing. Near downtown to walk to shops and restaurants, but on a side road to enjoy the quietness. Would recommend the Black Walnut to anyone!

Innkeeper Response
Happy to hear you loved the Eastlake room. I think it is often overlooked. Thank you for staying and for posting your experience. Word of mouth is our best advertising - tell everyone! Thank you!


Wonderful Weekend Away!

My husband and I have been staying at the Black Walnut for 5 years now! We absolutely love everything about it! Geri makes the best breakfast and we love to wake up in the morning and enjoy this delicious breakfast in bed! The rooms are all so clean, detailed and comfortable. This year we stayed in the Arts & Craft room again which is our favorite. I highly recommend the Black Walnut to anyone who is looking for a relaxing and romantic weekend away!

Innkeeper Response

Bob and Tracis first time

As our previous stay's, this trip was just as extraordinary. Between the cold and the Ice Storm, we didn't go out much. What a relaxing and comfortable stay. Geri was yet again the most gracious hostess. The Black Walnut Guest House as usual exceeded my expectations. Thanks Geri, Scott, Linda, Bob and Traci

Innkeeper Response
Thank you guys. It was my pleasure! Happy to know you enjoyed it.


Queit Getaway

We stayed in the Arts & Crafts room. It was nice to have the bed in one space and the chairs in another. We got to pick the time our food was delivered to our room each morning. There was always hot water and some snacks available to eat. A nice sitting area to look over menus and to read in a common area in the hallway to the rooms. Nice separate entrance in back. It does have stairs if that's an issue for you. Our room was cleaned every day. Geri was very nice!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your descriptive review of the room and offerings. I am happy to know you enjoyed your stay.
