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

We had a lovely stay at the Black Walnut B&B. The rooms were large and comfortable and the inn itself was warm and inviting. 5 star breakfast, Best French toast ever!!! Hats off to the chef and inn keeper, Jack.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review of the Black Walnut! We certainly had an adventure your first night with the power going off for a few hours (a first since I opened up the inn in 2010), but having a glass or two with you by candlelight while waiting for the power to come back in...

My wife and I visited here the first week of June while in the Ithaca area. Several things stand out about this visit. First, the accommodations were awesome, clean, complete and really made us feel like we were at home. Second, the breakfast were to die for, Southwest Frittata one morning to pecan banana pancakes on another, served with local... More

My family had a lovely stay at Black Walnut over Cornell commencement weekend. While the Ithaca hotels jacked up their prices, this inn was reasonable, very comfortable and only 20 minutes from the campus. Our host was friendly, very knowledgeable about the area and a wonderful cook. The breakfasts were great and the brownies are to die for. Plus the... More

My girlfriend and I had a special time staying at the Black Walnut. The Blue Moon Suite was beautiful and the breakfast in the morning was delicious. The whole experience was luxurious. Jack (the innkeeper) was very accommodating. We plan on going back for another vacation in the future!

I recently stayed at the Black Walnut. I just love this place. So much character; color, details. I loved my room. It is eclectic and historic. Jack, who owns it, is so lovely. Just really friendly and accommodating. He really knows how to make you feel welcome, and had lots of helpful suggestions for the area. The location was awesome,... More

The Black Walnut was the PERFECT B&B. Beautiful rooms that were CLEAN and very comfortable, beautiful grounds with quiet, peaceful gardens for conversation and sipping wine, and Jack, the innkeeper, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and could not have been more hospitable and friendly. AND THE FOOD, oh my goodness, the breakfasts were WONDERFULLY delicious - just the right... More
