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

AND THE FOOD, oh my goodness, the breakfasts were WONDERFULLY delicious - just the right... More

What a great time!! The host, Jack, was very hospital. Always had a glass of wine for us in the evenings and he baked these wonderful walnut brownies that paired well with the red wine. Highly recommend this B&B.

This is a very charming B&B with restoration work that preserves the natural beauty of the home. Jack Moore is a gracious host with awesome culinary skills. He is very knowledgeable of things going on in and around the area. He treated us with the utmost hospitality from the moment we arrived. Having wine and brownies available was a treat... More

Off the beaten path but amid the attractions of the Finger Lakes, the Black Walnt B&B was a hidden gem. Jack Moore was a gracious host and innkeeper. The usual drugery of booking reservations and payments was handled efficiently on the web. The Inn in September was particularly splendid surrounded by the breathtaking autumn foliage. The best by far was... More

The Black Walnut B&B and Jack Moore - Inn Keeper, will make your stay in the Finger Lakes region an extra special experience. The smell of a delicious breakfast filling the house as you wake up will help you start each day with a smile. I need a little caffeine before my morning interactions and I was very glad there...
