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

I've only ever stayed at one other B&B which was fabulous, so I walked into this place with very high expectations. As soon as we got to our room, I knew that the Black Walnut Room would exceed these expectations and become my new favorite. Everything was GREAT! Gerri was very friendly and was working in the well kept yard/garden... More

My husband and I stayed at the Black Walnut for 6 nights while visiting Door County in August 2014. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of The Black Walnut Guest House... The House: Upon pulling up to the large yellow and white home, we were greeted with beautiful blooming flowers leading up to the large, inviting porch complete... More

Ok, Im a little late in writing this review, we were there in January. This was our second time at The Black Walnut and it was just as great as the first. We stayed in the Eastlake room this time. Again, I cant praise Geri enough, she is the reason we come back here. The combination of food, privacy, and... More

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

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!
