The Black Walnut B&B is a lovely place. Jack is an incredible host and we have stayed there multiple times. He pays attention to all details and makes the whole experience so pleasant. I am gluten free and Jack even accommodates my dietary requirements. Our stay at the Black Walnut really makes our trips to Ithaca a pleasure.

my husband and I, along with another couple (good friends) stayed recently at this terrific bed and breakfast. Jack, the owner, could not have been a more perfect host. In every way, he thought of welcoming and wonderful things to make our experience the best! From the most delicious breakfasts ever, to coffee and tea always ready in the kitchen,... More

I've stayed in a lot of B&Bs in my time. This is one of the best. Our host, Jack, was very attentive to detail and was very helpful in suggesting sights to see, things to do and where to dine. You won't find a better host, even if you tried. Thanks to Willy and Izmir for sharing their home with... More

Wow! We cannot express the gratitude that we felt during our stay at the Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast. Jack was a very accommodating host with tons of relative knowledge of then area. We stayed for 3 nights. Each night was very pleasant. Every morning Jack had a delicious breakfast for us to help start our day off on the... More

We three couples stayed at the Black Walnut for a weekend and it was so wonderful we did not want to leave. Jack, our host, made us feel as if the Inn was our home away from home. The meals were delicious and the beds extremely comfortable. We enjoyed sitting in the gardens and around the fire at night. We... More

This place is great! We needed a quiet place to stay for two nights after our wedding and the Black Walnut Inn was the perfect place. It is directly in between my parents' house in Mecklenburg and his parents' house in Ithaca so the location was perfect. It was very quiet and Jack was really nice to us. Although we... More

My stay at The Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast was one of the major highlights of my 3 week trip to the east coast. The charm of the restored 1800’s farmhouse, the breakfasts, and the Innkeeper Jack who brings his blend of southern charm and British sensibilities made for an enchanting stay. I must add that his knowledge of the... More

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.
