Room was very clean and breakfast was great. Television was a little small however we weren't there to watch tv and not having a bathroom door was odd as I like my privacy. I would stay there again.

We had a two night stay at the Black Walnut and it was terrific. The room was cozy and comfy, and the cookies and varieties of teas and cocoas and other snacks was great. We had a great time at Peninsula State Park, the art studio, and other shopping we did. Also, the food was very good...we went to Dal Santo and Door County Fire Co. We will for sure be back!

We have stayed a number of times at the Black Walnut and will likely return. The rooms, hospitality and breakfast are outstanding! Sturgeon Bay is a nice town to stay in and use as the home base as you can explore the other fun towns in Door County.

About the innkeepers

Mike and I enjoy anything to do with the outdoors. We golf and bike, walk and just enjoy spending time outside. We grill out often and like to picnic. My calling was to be in the hospitality business and so I have been my entire working life.
