My husband and I came to Door County for the first time for our anniversary. We had never stayed at a B & B before but decided to try one after hearing Door County was known for them. This B & B seemed to have everything we were looking for and great reviews. Everything was perfect during our 4 night... More

Geri is an excellent hostess! The rooms are superb..............beautifully decorated and maintained. Besides being courteous and conscientious she is a an excellent cook/chef. She obviously takes pride in her business as an Inn Keeper. We would highly recommend THE BLACK WALNUT to anybody/everybody. The truth be told, it was the highlight of our trip to Wisconsin. I would love take... More

We stayed in the cottage room. Everything was really clean and relaxing. We had our own private balcony where we enjoyed our breakfast. The yogurt parfait was great! The homemade cookies were awesome! Will definitely stay again when back in the area.

The Black Walnut in Sturgeon Bay, WI, is the BEST B&B we have ever stayed at! We stayed in the Cabin room. It was very quaint and comfortable. We had a delicious raspberry muffin and yogurt/fruit/granola parfait in the morning. We definitely recommend the Walnut if you want a unique and wonderful experience. We will be staying here again, hopefully... More

What makes the Black Walnut really stand out are the special touches Geri provides. In the common space guest have access to homemade cookies, beverages and other... More

My husband and I stayed in the Arts and Crafts room at the Black Walnut Guest House for three nights this October. We needed a long weekend to get away from work and obligations at home, and I'm so happy we chose the Black Walnut. The warm, inviting earth tones in the room and the double-sided gas fireplace created such... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cottage room for 4 nights, and would highly recommend the Black Walnut for a romantic getaway! The room was beautiful, including the hot tub for two, the gas fireplace, charming porch, and comfortable bed. We also enjoyed the tea and home-baked cookies available anytime. One of the real highlights of our stay, however,... More

I am soooo glad you mentioned the TV. No one ever has and I have been thinking the same thing for awhile. (not your aging eyes, but how small the TV is) But, as you know, with the peaks and angles in this room it will be a challenge to find a spot for a larger screen. I will be... More
