We stayed at the Black Walnut B&B in the Blue Moon Suite for 4 nights in mid-July and loved our stay there. The house, buit in 1802 and fully renovated inside has an antique farmhouse atmosphere. We do not usually stay at B&B's because some owners can be overbearing and stiff. But the Black Walnut innkeeper, Jack Moore is a... More

We could not have been more happier. Jack the innkeeper was awesome upon greeting us and made use feel at home. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and clean! The breakfast and snacks were awesome. The homemade cookies in the kitchen were superb. Such a lovely place to hang and have a fine glass of wine outside in the garden. The... More

It was a pleasure hosting the Plunketts from Hollywood, Florida on their first trip to the Finger Lakes for a relative's wedding. As an innkeeper, it's always a joy having such fun guests as the Plunketts! More

The position of this B&B in the Finger Lakes Region of NY is ideal for excursions to Watkins Glen, Ithaca, numerous state parks, waterfalls, and of course, wineries. Jack, the innkeeper was great, had plenty of loca info to help you plan your day, and made some fabulous brerakfasts.

We stayed for 2 nights in early mid-July. We loved everything about the place. Stayed in the Blue Moon Suite. Enjoyed visiting with Jack as well as other guests. Breakfasts were superb. The renovation, the gardens, the room ambiance - everything was perfect. It is conveniently close to all the sites in the Ithaca/Watkins Glen area but you're really out... More

My partner and I stayed for one week in the Finger Lakes region, and we were so glad that we chose the Black Walnut as the spot to rest our weary bones at the end of each day! Jack made us feel as if we were old friends stopping by for visit. His recommendations led us to places that made... More

My spouse and I arrived for a romantic finger lake getaway Friday June 6. Our daughter bought us a gift card for the inn last Christmas. I am not sure HOW she chose this inn. Before arriving I looked at the website and let me just say, the pictures do not do the inn justice. We stayed in the Blue... More

Myself and my husband stayed at the Black Walnut B&B for our 30th anniversary. We got excellent service and great food. Jack made us feel like we were one of his family. He cooked great breakfasts. There was always plenty of food. The B&B was built in 1802 and had that quirky charm that my husband and I enjoy. Jack... More

It was a sincere pleasure having Glenda and her husband Lou stay with us for 3 nights to celebrate their 30th Anniversary! NY liquor laws no longer allow us to serve complimentary wine to our guests, but we have all the set-ups for guests who might wish to pick up a bottle of wine at one of the 100 plus... More

We took a trip to the fingerlakes in early November. While this is probably a late time in the fall to travel to this region we had a wonderful time nonetheless. The Black Walnut is located very close to Cayuga lake and so many wineries (there's even one located within walking distance). While we dont stay at B&Bs very often... More

We stayed at the Black Walnut for one night and we'd love to go back again. Our room was lovely, well appointed and very comfortable. The whole B&B had a beautiful ambiance, and I only wish we had more time to sit in the living room in front of the fire. Jack is a wonderful innkeeper! This is why we... More

2 couples looking for a place to stay in the finger lake area for a weekend, so we looked at Trip advisor for reviews.
