Cozy room, comfy sheets/bed, good amount of privacy, rich and simple decor- perfect! Geri is a fantastic cook (fresh muffins with breakfast, homemade granola, cookies) and took care of many details behind the scenes. Thank you!

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

Geri is the perfect hostess, she makes you feel at home and gives you all the privacy that you need. The breakfasts are outstanding and the afternoon cookies and treats are amazing!!!!!

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

This was our second visit to the Black Walnut and it was as wonderful as the first (2.5 years ago). Staying in one of Geri's rooms is like opening a present. The wrapping is as beautiful and flawless as what's inside. The decor of each room is tasteful and gorgeous. We stayed in the Cottage room for three nights and... More

Thank you for the review. Love that you noticed and appreciated the natural and organic food choices and toiletry items. If not organic, local, fresh and/or the best I can find. The Cabin room is a popular choice among guests for its rustic charm. I absolutely want you to have a reason to return but if you need a mug... More
