We stayed at the Black Walnut Inn for three nights the weekend before our wedding. We were immediately greeted by a beautiful yard, friendly guests, chocolate candy, and a lot of helpful information. The owner, Jack, was really friendly and eager to make sure we had a great time, offering delicious breakfasts, evening wine, and great conversation. The rooms were... More

We have recently returned to the UK from our first trip to the Finger Lakes and therefore did not know what to expect. Our host, Jack, made the five of us feel immediately welcome with an in depth tour and delicious glass of the local wine. As well as comfortable rooms, guests have the use of a lounge, kitchen and...

From the moment we met Jack, the owner, we knew we were in for a great weekend. He made us feel comfortable and welcome, as he led us to our suite. Good sized clean rooms, eclectic furnishings (not the rarefied, dont touch anything atmosphere you sometimes find in a B&B), a comfortable bed, a convenient location, smart and helpful recommendations,...

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 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
