My wife and I can not say enough wonderful things about this Bed and Breakfast. It is very tidy & charming. Jack's breakfasts are simply delicious and his suggestions to area attractions were very helpful. We truly enjoyed our stay and recommend the Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast to anyone. Thank You, Erik & Suzanne (Mantua NJ)

We (two couples) visited in June and had a great time. Jack, the owner, goes out of his way to make sure your stay will be enjoyable. He knows the area well and can give advice no matter where your interest lie. The inn is a treasure, an old historic inn that has been nicely updated with all of the... More

This is an awesome place to stay! Although we only stayed for one night, everything from booking to checking out went smoothly. Rooms were excellent and well kept. The owner/chef was very friendly, helpful with pointing out local points of interest, and an awesome cook! This B&B is within walking distance of a winery that serves food. My wife and... More

On a recent trip to the Finger Lakes - Cayuga Lake in particular, we stayed at The Black Walnut B&B. What a wonderful experience to have hit upon this B&B. The 1802 B&B has been shored up and remodeled for modern use, yet has the charm and grace of yesteryear. The host, Jack Moore, could not have been nicer. He... More

Absolutely loved this place and the innkeeper. Would highly recommend. The breakfast are amazing and the innkeeper is very knowledgeable of the area, not to mention the most gracious host. We would go back again.

Jack is just a wonderful host and a great cook. His B&B is beautifully renovated and has all the comfort you'd hope for. We visited the Black Walnut in June of 2015 and stayed for two nights (and should have stayed another night) and felt welcome from the moment we arrived.

The Black Walnut is a cozy charming inn. Jack the innkeeper is friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the quiet country atmosphere and comfortable room. The Americana Winery is a pleasant walk down the road.

We were traveling to NYC and decided to break up the trip with a stay over in the Finger Lakes. Our quick decision to stay at the Black Walnut B&B paid off! It's a lovely, old rustic home, with a garden oasis and a very accommodating host. Jack prepared the most amazing breakfast, french toast with sticky pecans, He graciously... More
