Awesome B&B

This was our 5th stay at the Black Walnut and we loved it. Geri is so nice & very accommodating. The food is amazing. We were able to relax and enjoy our time there. We can't wait to stay there again.

Absolutely Outstanding Bed and Breakfast

I will be returning to The Black Walnut Inn as soon as I am able! My significant other and I stayed in the Cabin Room for four nights, and it was clean and luxurious. Our room was large and comfortable. The skylights above the bed were heavenly. Everything at the B and B was organic and energy efficient. Breakfast is brought to your door, and it is always not only beautiful to the eye, but tastes out of this world. We ate breakfast each morning on the connected deck outside our room, and we lounged in the bath in the late afternoon. Geri's homemade chocolate chip and dried cherry cookies and iced tea was the icing on the cake. This is a must-stay! Allie and Adam

Fantastic Stay

We love the Black Walnut Guest House, for the value there can be no better place to stay in Door County. Mike and Geri go out of their way to make you feel like it is your second home. We love that they deliver breakfast directly to your door - knock and run away. We have been staying here for over 10 years, and will continue to do so for years to come - there simply is not a better place in Door County!

Stayed for two nights at the Black Walnut Guest House, and we had a great experience! We reserved the Arts & Crafts room, which was spacious and nicely decorated; my sister and I appreciated the separation of the room by the fireplace, so we had privacy while enjoying the amazing whirlpool tub. I really enjoyed having morning coffee out on the patio (despite the chilly weather). The homemade breakfast is brought to your room at the time you choose, and it is delicious!! While we were there, we had a sweet potato breakfast pizza one day, and an omelet with our choice of ingredients the next, along with freshly baked muffins, fruit, juice and coffee. Can forget to mention the yummy cookies freshly baked by Geri all day long...what a treat to have. Everything is well thought out at this bed and breakfast; all the 'little things' that bring comfort are there for you. Will definitely recommend the Black Walnut to friends and family, and are already planning another visit!

Perfect weekend getaway

The Black Walnut Guest House B&B

My boyfriend and I stayed in the East Lake room with a whirl pool in the top (third) story tower of the room. We also had a gas fireplace that was set on a timer so we could wake up and enjoy the fire or fall asleep with it on! All amenities were well thought out and I loved the fact that we were provided with organic/all natural products! The breakfasts were also incredible; hot homemade muffins, warm oatmeal, omelets, fruit, coffee, juice, tea, etc., which were also all natural/organic! She also provided gluten free options for breakfast and was wonderful in recommending places to eat in the area. I would definitely go back again, we had a wonderful experience!

Full or charm and touches of home

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Black Walnut Guest House! There were SO many little touches that made us feel at home and helped us relax. The value for our money exceeded expectations and the room was just lovely. The weather in Sturgeon Bay was very cold when we visited, so we had plenty of time in the room to experience it all. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

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.
