The rocking chair front porch was so welcoming. The Inn was full of charm and decorated beautifully. Be prepared to be pampered. Mornings offer a three course gourmet breakfast. In the early evening you will see a spread of several appetizers and four wines to pair with them. Peter is a professional baker, so be prepared to have your tastebuds... More

This was my husband's first stay at a bed and breakfast, and he now insists we only stay at B&Bs when we are out of town! The claw foot rub was wonderful as well as the breakfast and owner. We had a wonderful time and will stay here again when we visit the city!

Lori is a fantastic host and really takes the time to explain the history of the home and make you feel just "right at home." The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bathrooms are modern, but still have the "charm" to fit in with the home. The carriage house is pet friendly and is completely remodeled and gorgeous - you... More

The Black Walnut Inn in Asheville is one of those places that exceeds all expectations. The property is absolutely dazzling and the owners, Peter and Lori, are the best inn keepers I have ever encountered. You are welcomed from the moment of your arrival. The breakfasts are delicious and wine and horderves are served at 5:00. We left after a... More

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in March to celebrate my birthday. We didn't know anything about the place but it had good reviews. It turned out to be perfect. The house was lovely, the food and attention from our hosts, Peter and Lori, were great. They helped us find places to visit and eat, served us... More

It was a great place to stay for our three couples get away. We spent 3 nights there and truly enjoyed our stay. They had one of the best afternoon tee times I have ever experienced. Great food and all the wine and soda you could drink. The owners are very interesting and run a fantastic house. Our party took... More

In simple terms, we just truly enjoyed our time and are completely satisfied with the value expended and received at the Black Walnut Inn. Personally we read many of the comments within trip advisor for this Inn prior to booking (i.e. Many very good and the very few not so good). We can only confirm the sense of being welcomed... More

We stayed at the Black Walnut Inn for just one night while traveling through the area from Florida to Ohio and were very happy with the choice. The Inn is beautiful - very comfortable bed, Christmas trees in each of the guest rooms, and wonderful antiques. Peter is an amazing baker. The most delicious part of breakfast was an apricot...

My boyfriend and I spent 4 wonderful days at the inn in October. Everything was perfect ! Peter was engaging every morning at the 3 course breakfast which were always amazing. We were lucky enough to spend one of the evening cocktail hours with hin as well talking about how he and Lori found all the treasures for the Inn.... More

Let me start off by saying, one of the reasons we picked this bed and breakfast is because it wasn't overkill on the victorian decorations like many of the other B&Bs/inns in Asheville. If you're looking for a beautiful, elegant inn...this is the place. We stayed in the carriage house in the beautiful Magnolia Room. The room was elegant and... More
