My husband and I are from the suburbs of Chicago and decided for New Year's Eve to do something different. I did a lot of research and booked this place and I was not disappointed! Let me preface this review by saying both my husband and I travel for a living so we stay in different hotels every week (mostly... More

This was our fourth stay at the Black Walnut and we saved the best room for last.....The Arts and Crafts Room. This room is amazing! This room feels like the biggest room in the house and the king bed is the best bed in the house. The hot tub, sitting area, double sided fireplace and balcony make this room perfect.... More

My husband and I stayed at The Black Walnut Guest House to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We had never stayed at a B & B before, but gave it a try based on the trip advisor reviews. We loved it! Our room (The Cottage) was perfect. Clean and comfortable, with lovely little details. Geri delivers breakfast to your room,... More

I highly recommend staying at this B & B. It is super clean, comfortable, amazing tubs especially after a long bike ride through Door County. The owner Geri even arranged to have massages after and it they were on the front porch. Private, but just so wonderful. Geri is also an amazing baker!! You don't know what you are missing... More

I spent a weekend at the Black Walnut with some girlfriends and let's just say our hostess Geri whet over the top to make us all feel like her family. We started our weekend with a beautiful breakfast of organic fixings & friendly conversation. We then spent the day on a bike ride up in Sister Bay of 52 miles.... More

Friends and I spent the most incredible weekend there. We were in town for a bike ride, Geri even booked massages for us after the ride! Food was amazing, the rooms were perfect, including a Jacuzzi in each of our rooms. I'll never stay anywhere else!

We stayed here on our mini-moon directly after our wedding. Do to the timing, we were unable to take an entire week off, so we went up to Door County for 3 days and two nights. This was both my first time and my husbands first time staying at a bed and breakfast. Our favorite part was having our breakfast... More

We loved this B&B. We like to go to B&B's where we get our food brought to our room so we can stay in our jammies and relax while we eat. The food was the best. You fill out a menu the night before. Some things are the same each day, but the main course changes. Our room was great... More

This place was amazing! The room was beautiful and the breakfasts were to die for!! The breakfasts are delivered to your door so you can eat at your leisure and not have to get dressed for breakfast. We stayed in the Arts and Crafts room and the whirlpool tub was a wonderful way to end the day. Plus, Geri, the... More
