We stayed at the Black Walnut and our experience was wonderful. The owners Lori (professional chef) and Peter (professional baker) were very friendly and helpful. Peter gave us great directions and insider tips before we went anywhere in the area.
The housekeeping staff were just as nice and went out of their way to make sure my husband and I had everything we needed.
There were 3-4 different items served each morning for breakfast (pastries, fruits, stuffed French Toast, etc.) as well as fresh squeezed juices, assorted teas, and coffee. At 5:30 p.m. we were treated to wine, tea, and assorted snacks (key lime tarts, chocolate covered strawberries, brownies, quiche, pepper and goat cheese wraps, etc.).
We stayed in the Holly Room. The bedding and towels were so soft and comfortable. The room was a nice size, and the bathroom had a steam shower.
The location of the Black Walnut (as with other B&Bs in that area) is not a short walk to downtown, but rather a short drive to downtown. I didn't mind though. The Black Walnut is in a quiet area, and there is parking in the back of the house.
