The Black Walnut Guest House B&B

4.8 on March 11, 2015

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.

Awesome B&B! Great experience!

The room was cozy, food was awesome, and Geri was so hospitable. She researched things for us to do based on our interests before we even arrived! We are definitely coming back!

Exceptional and Relaxing Stay

Our stay at The Black Walnut B&B was absolutely fantastic. Geri is a wonderful hostess and her attention to detail is superb. She makes the most delicious breakfasts and they are delivered to your room at your requested time. The rooms are warm, inviting, and very relaxing. The whirlpool and fireplace were used many times throughout our stay. We can't wait for a return visit to The Black Walnut B&B. Thank you Geri for a wonderful weekend.

Geri was a great host! The room was clean and inviting. The breakfast in the morning was cooked to order and delicious. We were able to peak into the other rooms upon departure... Amazing! The photos don't do the place any justice. We will definitely be back!

Amazing, relaxing B&B

Great getaway in Door County

We spent a lovely winter weekend at The Black Walnut Guest House in Sturgeon Bay. The room was clean and well appointed. The service was outstanding and the breakfast served in your room was top notch. It was private and provided the best of a very relaxing romantic stay for us.

We felt like it was our own home!

The food was amazing, Geri was so sweet and the rooms were just fabulous. Everything was organic and we felt so comfortable the entire time we were there. Geri or Mike even went out of their way to do turn down service with out us asking!

Very Nice place

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.
