Our first time at a bed and breakfast. Was surprised that I enjoyed the peace and quiet at this place. We were offered brownies (which I can't eat as I am gluten free) and was told that wine was being served about 6 pm. We went downstairs and enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch before leaving for dinner.... More

My fiancé and I drove over 6 hours to get to the finger lakes and it was so worth it! We spent three nights here. Watkins glen is what attracted us to the area but it was not the highlight of the trip! We visited other waterfalls and gorges, lucifer being awe inspiring! We also paddle boarded on one of... More

This small, intimate B&B is wonderful. Very good breakfast and the perfect spot on the wine trail. Our room was very clean and spacious. Occasionally some time some truck noise, but do not let that you shy away from this fantastic home away.

This place is fantastic. My wife and I with a friend visited the Finger Lakes for 2 days and our stay at this place was great! Jack is an awesome innkeeper as he certainly puts the breakfast in Bed and Breakfast. His breakfasts were amazing and we were lucky to have 2 of them. Our room was clean and neat... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Black Walnut B&B! The house is lovely, our bed was comfy. Jack's attention to thoughtful details was much appreciated. We enjoyed fresh brownies every night, delicious breakfasts, and a bag of fresh apples, pears, and brownies to go, as we left. Jack knows the area well and had very helpful tips for restaurants,...

This small B&B is located conveniently in the NY Finger-lakes area and was a great quiet retreat. Located close to many,many wineries and attractions. The accommodations were spacious, thoughtful and well appointed. This was a big deal, since the house was originally built in the 1800's! The owner and inn keeper, Jack was friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about... More

The old home had a lot of character with some uneven floors but was charming, spotless, and comfortable. Jack was a very gracious host who went above and beyond to make our stay delightful. If we go to that area of the country again (very likely) we will definitely stay there again if a room is available.

It was super meeting the 2 of you, and your review is greatly appreciated. The original floors around the house (built in 1802), are 99% flat, but there is an slight uneven grade in 2 spots. Many of my guests comment favorably about this, understanding that the house is 213 years old, and that the slight unevenness adds to the... More

Jack Moore is a fabulous bed and breakfast operator! From his special home made breakfasts to his assistance with local activities to the charm he has created in his home, the Black Walnut is an experience not to be missed. And when you leave, Jack is sure to hand you a treat bag for your journey!!

Taking an historic 1802 home and creating a charming bed and breakfast is no small feat, but Innkeeper Jack M. has done just that! The Finger Lakes region is spectacular with all its scenic vistas, enjoyable rambles, and sweet vineyards and experiences. The Black Walnut has absorbed all the gracious feel of this region and provides very comfortable rooms with... More
