We thoroughly enjoyed 2 nights in the Eastlake Room at this charming B&B. The hot tub in the upper level of our suite was a decadent, relaxing reward after hiking on the nearby Ice Age Trail. A comfy queen-sized bed, fireplace, small seating area and bathroom w/shower are all decorated with care and meticulously maintained. Amenities included an in-room refrigerator,... 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

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...
