The Black Walnut Inn reminded us of a Tuscan Villa atop vineyard & orchard covered hills. Located in Dundee, Oregon, heart of the Pinot Noir blessed Willamette Valley, we spent 3 glorious nights here. Karen & Neal Utz were the perfect inn keepers. Informed us about the area, served us gourmet breakfasts, and Karen, the best tourist ambassador for Oregon,... More

We have stayed here at least a dozen times since the Black Walnut opened. It is our go to place for every special night. Birthdays, anniversaries, hit a wall & need a night off days, need no excuse days. We wouldn't consider any place else.

Karen and Neal do a great job of making their guests feel welcome and well taken care of in this lovely B+B in the vineyards outside Dundee OR. Great views, great accommodations, great service, and delicious breakfasts!! Because it is off the beaten path, it is very quiet and relaxing.

The Black Walnut was recommended to me by a friend. After a little more research, I booked a birthday weekend for my wife. The property far exceeded our expectations. It sits on the top of Worden Hill Rd which is really convenient as there are a number of really nice wineries on the same road. The property itself is beautiful... More

We stayed at the Black Walnut Inn & Vineyard over a long weekend with extended family (all 18+). It was early in the season so the Inn wasn't filled. Our rooms well-appointed and comfortable. The bathrooms were top-notch. Breakfast was delicious - with options that pleased our entire crew - the bacon lovers, the vegans, the students who don't usually... More

The Black Walnut Inn made me feel at home, the owners where very nice and both the hotel and room was gorgeous. The breakfast in the morning was also very good, absolutely fabulous gluten free waffles!

We just stayed one night at the beautiful Black Walnut Inn. My only complaint was that I wish we had more time there! For a reasonable price, we had a beautiful room (the Wildwood suite). Tons of room with a gorgeous bathroom! Breakfast the next morning was great -- possibly the best bacon I've ever had! And their adorable dog... More

My wife and I loved our stay. Our room overlooked the vineyard. It had a wonderfully comfortable king bed with a large down comforter with a duvet. The large Jacuzzi tub was great for a soak. Breakfast - delicious. Try one of Karen's Red Hills Mary. Karen and Neil were helpful with wine tours. A really great overnight.
