Geri was a wonderful host with great attention to detail. She delivered to our door a wonderful breakfast each morning that included fresh-from-the-oven homemade muffins. Our 4 night stay was certainly worth the 7 hour drive for my wife and I to Sturgeon Bay. We only had time to see and do about 1/3 of what is available within a... More

We felt absolutely spoiled/pampered at the Black Walnut Guest House. Not your typical B&B- this has the feeling of a 5-star boutique hotel, with surprise amenities at every turn- jars of cookies and chocolates, iced and hot teas, and my favorite: the BREAKFAST. You can have your pick of *healthy as well as decadent options*, served at a time convenient... More

I would highly recommend this B&B. My husband and I spent two nights here this past weekend and had a wonderful experience. We stayed in the Arts & Crafts Room (Room #4). It was spacious with a private bath, separate whirlpool tub, and fireplace (we didn't use the tub or the fireplace, but nice to have the option). There's a... More

The Black Walnut is just perfect! Our room was great, and we truly enjoyed the fireplace after the winter trolley tour. Breakfast is incredible! Be sure to have the oatmeal with apples and pears if Geri is serving that while you are there. The omlets were also grea, as well as the muffins both days, and the yogurt parfaits! Cookies... More

We found this B&B on a whim in the summer of 2008 and stayed for about a week. We have tried to return at least once each year for a romantic excursion to Door County and have never considered another place to stay other than here. We have always stayed in the Arts and Crafts room, which is a huge... More

Just finished another great weekend at the Black Walnut and can't wait to go back. Jeri is an awesome hostess, great rooms, great breakfast, great coffee, oh, and the cookies! My goodness, the cookies are incredible. I'll not stay anywhere else.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful b&b. It is a great intimate environment for couples. The location in Sturgeon Bay made for an easy drive up the peninsula. Geri, the owner, was warm, gracious and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious, and I really appreciated the gluten free modifications. We could not recommend this place more highly!

We were planning a last minute trip to Door County and were able to squeeze in three nights at the BW. Our experience was fantastic. On such short notice, Geri was able to get us in the Arts & Crafts room the first two nights and then in The Cottage on the third/final night. As other reviewers have stated, the... More

We loved our stay! Geri was a sweetheart when we arrived, and the location is great. Our room was quirky, but clean and comfortable. And quiet. We stayed in the room with the giant fish tank. We loved the fresh cookies and drinks in the hallway. The made-to-order breakfast in the room was delicious and perfect each morning. We always... More
