Situated in a quiet neighborhood seconds from the Jefferson street shops and just a short walk to Sturgeon Bay's Historic downtown. You will find fine and casual dining and wonderful specialty shops. The Black Walnut has four uniquely decorated guest rooms, one that is sure to your liking.

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time at the Black Walnut Guest House. Geri is an exceptionally thoughtful and kind host, and the inn is beautiful. We loved our room, the inn's collection of movies, and the delicious breakfasts that Geri cooked for us! I can't imagine a nicer place to stay.

My husband and I came to Door County for the first time for our anniversary. We had never stayed at a B & B before but decided to try one after hearing Door County was known for them. This B & B seemed to have everything we were looking for and great reviews. Everything was perfect during our 4 night stay at the Black Walnut! We stayed in the cottage room and loved it. Despite probably being one of the smaller rooms, there was a very airy, cozy and charming feel to it and we had our own private balcony. The breakfast trays were so beautiful! They were always color coordinated with fresh flowers. The fresh fruit was so good. Geri also made us special breakfasts including omelettes, an egg scramble with veggies, freshly made smoothies and homemade oatmeal with bananas, coconut and walnuts. That was the best oatmeal I've ever had! Aside from the food, the rooms also had the same attention to detail. The towels and sheets were of very high quality, the bed was comfortable, the soaps were all organic and unique. There was door county cherry soap and lavender bath salts to use in the huge whirlpool tub. The fish tank and candles made for a romantic and unique experience. When we weren't exploring town, it was nice to have games and a wide selection of movies to choose from. Overall, Geri was a very kind hostess and was very knowledgable about the area. She helped us set up and/or find things to do by providing us maps and other information about what was going on during our stay. I can't say one bad thing about this place!

The Black Walnut Guest House of Sturgeon Bay, WI was excellent. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and features off-street parking. I stayed in the Arts & Crafts room and the pictures on the website do not do it any justice; the room was MUCH larger than I expected. It featured a whirlpool, private balcony, and king bed. The breakfast was ok, but I am usually a plain bacon and eggs kind of person, so the fanciful spread brought to our door did not suit me much, but my wife loved it. The handmade soaps and bath salts in the room smelled amazing. The main hallway outside of the rooms features a stand with water, tea, and cookies that guests may indulge in at their leisure. The chocolate chip and cherry cookies were phenomenal, however, two cookies I ate contained long black and white hairs. I suspect that the innkeeper did mention owning a dog. So, besides that one issue with the cookies, I would rate the Black Walnut an 8/10.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying 2 nights at the Black Walnut. The cottage room was adorable and we loved the private balcony. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and homey. The best part was the breakfast which was delivered to your room so no awkward small talk with other guests in the morning. Everything served for breakfast was delicious and was really the highlight of our stay. We will definitely be going back!

Room was classic decor but with modern amenities, food was excellent, host was friendly but not intrusive. Would recommend the Black Walnut Guesthouse to anyone staying in the area.

This is the best B&B we've ever stayed at. We stayed in the Cabin Room, which was adorable. Geri had chocolates and a little bouquet of flowers waiting for us upon our arrival (we were celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary). She also brought us one of the best breakfasts of our lives! The parfait was so great and I swear the fruit tasted better than anything I've ever had. She also gave us great recommendations on how to best tour Door County. The only negative is that Sturgeon Bay is quite far from the "action" of Door County, so you have to drive 40 minutes to get up near the top. After a long drive from Chicago an extra 40 minutes can be exhausting. I would highly recommend staying here - it was fabulous.

Everything about the Black Walnut was lovely, down to every little detail. Geri has clearly thought of everything and takes pride in her work. It was a pleasure honeymooning at the Black Walnut and we'll definitely be back!

We stayed in the cabin room. It was cozy, clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed the outside porch and the hot tub also. The best part was probably the warm muffins and breakfast tray in the mornings. Soooo good. Geri was extremely accommodating to any needs. We will come back again.

Our stay at this wonderful bed and breakfast was everything we could have wanted. It was very quiet and peaceful. The amenities like homemade cookies, coffee, and hot chocolate always being available made the stay memorable. And, the breakfasts brought to your door were absolutely delicious. I am telling everyone about this place, and can't wait to return!

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.
