Black Walnut Point Inn is located at the end of Tilghman Island on 57 acres of a waterfront wildlife sanctuary. Our own six-acre island at the end of the point, you can watch the sunrise over the Choptank River and set over the Chesapeake Bay. Both the 1840s house and private luxury cabins are open year-round, and every accommodation has endless water views and private baths. Enjoy the pool, hot tub, bird watching, fishing or just relaxing with a good book. If you enjoy nature or need a private retreat, come to the Black Walnut Point Inn - the secret place of peace.

My (now) wife and I stumbled upon the BWPI during a destination-less road trip in 2012 or '13. As a Northern California transplant, the place was very attractive to me for its rural and secluded surroundings. We promised ourselves we would return "one day" and stay at the Inn.
