“A World Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

There is no place quite like this anywhere. Tracy and Bob both welcomed us with enthusiasm and made us feel right at home immediately. We were quick to go have dinner and come back to enjoy the grounds and watch the sunset over the water from one of the many hammocks, cocktails in hand. Then we swam in the dark, floating on our backs, watching the clear sky full of stars. The next morning, I wandered the grounds and ate from their raspberry bushes before a hearty homecooked breakfast. Our stay was too short! It felt like visiting an old family estate where you are welcome in every corner with every comfort from games to books to musical instruments, plenty of antiques to enjoy, and a fridge with snacks and drinks to raid when you get the midnight munchies. We will be back!

The Black Walnut Point Inn became our home away from home for four amazing days over Labor Day weekend 2013. Surrounded by water on three sides, the BWPI sits on the southern most point of Tilghman Island. You can literally watch the sunrise on the east side of the peninsula and the sun set on the west. We stayed in one of the rustic cozy water front cabins that is nestled between the main house bed and breakfast and the water. The cabins have AC, a cute kitchen with all the basic necessities (pots, pans & utensils), fridge, microwave, electric stove and oven, dishwasher, TV, gas log fireplace and a wonderful screened in porch with rocking chairs. Sitting on the porch with the bay breeze...it doesn't get much better than that.
Breakfast is delish and is served daily by the fabulous inn-keepers who are artists at hospitality. During the day we wandered the property - viewed birds, swung in hammocks and swam in the in-ground pool. Hopping into the hot tub was a perfect end to the day! We both accomplished a level of relaxation rarely achieved and were truly sad when we left. BUT...booked the next trip for weekend in October.
We didn't need to leave! And that's exactly what we wanted.

I've been coming to Tilghman Island for many years now, and the best place to stay for total relaxation is the Black Walnut Point Inn! The owners continue to make it comfortable and enjoyable. Absolutely LOVE IT!

Room Tip: All rooms have waterfront views!

This is the end of the road, in its own enclave, on a point of land on the East shore of Chesapeake Bay. Watch the sun rise from your bed, and the sun set from a hammock. The two hosts are friendly and informative but know to stay out of the way when desired. Breakfast provides an array of choices. Birdwatchers will be in paradise. The rooms are low key, functional but not fussy. Several sitting rooms, enclosed porches outdoor tables and seats, a nice pool, all are great places to do very little other than listen to the wind, birds, insects, waves, or to read. I have rarely found a better place to relax.

Room Tip: The three cabins, though more expensive, are larger and have screened in porches.

We were looking for a break from our hectic lives of work, children and grandchildren-- & found a fabulous spot. Black Walnut Inn on the southern point of the Eastern shore. What great hosts Bob and Tracy are, and the location was perfect. The room was clean and well appointed. Two minor issues. The electrical outlets in the bedroom of the main house are not upgraded to "three prong grounded outlets" so I was unable to use my power strip adapter. The shower was like a cruise ship small but worked well. I plan to return and strongly recommend this B & B.

Room Tip: Avoid the attic bedroom.

We were fortunate to spent one Friday night at the Inn while visiting St. Michaels. The hospitality and surroundings can't be bettered anywhere. Lightning late in the evening provided a dramatic, unobstructed, panoramic light show. Being located in a MD state wildlife refuge, it's helpful to have a thorough understanding of when you'll arrive - after hours you must negotiate a locked gate.

Room Tip: The Attic Room is an excellent value. Small and accessed by stairs that demand a bit of contortion...

Thank you Bob & Tracy and all the great people of Talbot County. We booked the Inn sight unseen based on reviews and phone conversations with the owners. We met other guests and got them involved in the wedding as well.
The point is beautiful and the wildlife and views are stunning. Both Bob & Tracy are great story tellers and you just want to sit on the porch and talk....great entertainers.
The breakfasts were great and no one went away hungry.
We cannot with to return. The inn and the owners have a special place in our hearts.

We love you guys!

JT & Patrick

Ohhh....when in Tilghman Island, be sure to stop in a Two If By Sea Cafe.....Henry makes great food!
