Our private six-acres are at the end of the point, where you can watch the sunrise over the Choptank River and set over the Chesapeake Bay. Both the 1840s house and private cabins are open year-round, and every accommodation has endless water views and private baths. Enjoy the pool, bird watching, or just relaxing in hammock or rocking chair. If you enjoy nature or need a private rustic retreat, come to the Black Walnut Point Inn - the secret place of peace.

I recently stayed at Black Walnut Point Inn for a wedding. This was during COVID so some restrictions and changes were in place but they were well implemented and unobtrusive.

The location is spectacular. Probably the best view you can get in Maryland. The actual rooms (I was in a group so I saw several rooms and “cottages”—actually tiny house-style trailers) are nice, but not luxurious. Bob and Tracy are kind and will do anything they can to make your stay feel special.

That said, there is room for improvement. If you are having a special event here, expect to be proactive with your requests. The first night we were overwhelmed with mosquitos far worse than I’ve experienced anywhere in Maryland. The next day Bob and Tracy sprayed and things were far better. The grass hadn’t been cut before our arrival (for an outdoor wedding, my expectation would be that the grass is cut the day before guests arrive). By the time we realized it, everything was set up and it was too late to request that they cut it. The breakfast portions were small, but the food was good. The rooms were expensive.

Finally, the house looks like it hasn’t been touched since 1975. I don’t think you could find that color of shag carpet if you tried. The trinkets overwhelm the decor of what could be a charming older home. Instead, it feels a bit like you’re paying $250 a night to stay with your grandmother.

Overall, it was an enjoyable experience that could have been perfect if the above considerations were taken into account. I would stay again and wouldn’t discourage anyone from staying here, and only post this so people can set their expectations accordingly. Thank you Bob and Tracy!

After finding a good deal for the Black Walnut Point Inn on Expedia, my wife and I spent 3 days in mid-October at this unusual and beautiful location. 3 bald eagles greeted us upon arrival and the magic continued - heron, osprey, migrating butterflies, sunrises, sunsets, kayaking, fishing and trips to charming St. Michaels. Our hosts, Bob and Tracy, ensured appropriate COVID19 safeguards were in place while providing a good breakfast and pleasant hospitality. We stayed in the “Attic Hideaway.” Guests should expect the house has both the charm and limitations of an 1840s homestead - our room was small but functional and the views more than compensated for its size. We will be back.

Thank you, and yes, the Attic and our old Eastern Shore house is both of those things. FYI - our rate is lower if book with us directly, but it great to have you visit the eagles!

The owners are wonderful, kind and helpful. We saw a lot of birds. The gardens and pool are lovely. We went over the summer and suggest bug spray. The area to sit outside is screened for your protection though - a lovely place to read. Inn is far away from easy food and groceries so bring some with you to make it easier. Muy son had recently had surgery and could not walk and the owners let us use the golf cart to show him around and get him out. So kind! And breakfast there is amazing! You will never want to leave that amazing food with so many choices!

We stayed two nights with another couple in two cabins over a cold but beautiful March weekend. The sunsets were incredible - you can’t take a bad photo. You don’t have to leave your bed to see the sunrise. Where else can you see unobstructed sunrise and sunset from the same property? The wildlife is fantastic - wild birds, deer, and other critters wandering the property.

The cabins are rustic and the outside need some work (e.g. screens need mending), but functional. The kitchens are small and dated, but have all the basics you need to cook for two of you. The king bed was comfortable, and the cabins were warm on the cold March evenings. The hot water heater is small, so pause between showers to let it heat back up.

The caretakers quickly fixed one minor concern we had. They offered to start a fire for us one evening on the point, and were very friendly and available as needed. The cabins were clean and tidy when we arrived. Very quiet and peaceful. The history write up in the cabin is very interesting!

Overall we enjoyed the visit a lot, and restaurants and a decent general store (with an EXCELLENT bourbon selection) are 15 minutes away. St. Michael’s is wonderful and less than 30 mins away. The accommodations are expensive given the rustic nature of the cabins are, you come for the location and the views and it did NOT disappoint. Unfortunately the house was not open and breakfast was not served due to COVID, but that’s understandable.

We’d recommend a visit.

We came for a two night stay and left early. Literature prior to arrival and guest information in the room says no breakfast in winter months through March. Our stay was April 10. When we asked the hosts what time breakfast was they said, "No breakfast". Well, we read a review from one week ago (April at the latest) that said, "... food was made with love." What food?! The refrigerator had food stains inside. The broken window in the bedroom might be a safety hazard as it's close to where one would open the window. I have to say, the hosts were a friendly family and the property location was stunning with water on three sides. As a suggestion, some fresh baked muffins, fresh fruit and juice in a basket as well as updating the literature would be a great idea instead of "no breakfast".

This quaint bed and breakfast sitting on a peninsula in the Chesapeake is the best, most secluded, hideaway in the DMV. View an awakening sunrise and a breathtaking sunset from the same location. Visit during the right season and you can partake of the figs and black walnuts that grow on the property. You can also experience the bird sanctuary that features Osprey, Eagles, geese and seagull as they go about their day fishing in the Chesapeake.

The managers Bob and Tracey are very welcoming and do a great job of making sure your every need is met.

The town of St. Michael is a short 20 minutes away,where there are nice restaurants, groceries and shopping.
Once you've visited Tilghman Island and spent a day, weekend or a week in 0ne of the spacious cabins, you won't regret it and you will return!

Has to be the best place to go to decompress and have the best time. Bob and Tracy make everything as effortless and enjoyable and see to your needs. Wether you stay in one of the rooms in the house or chose a cabin you will feel like you could stay forever. Can't seem to be able to get here enough.

What a hidden gem on Tilghman Island! Very quaint and incredibly exclusive-feeling location on a breathtaking piece of land on the Chesapeake. Our cabin was perfectly appointed for what we needed and there’s a great spot for launching our kayaks. Great communication with the owner and will certainly be coming back.

My wife and I stayed in the Tilghman Room and really enjoyed our stay! Bob and Tracy were very nice, the breakfasts were great and the bald eagles and monarch butterflies were welcome daily visitors (we were there at a good time for the monarchs). We found the Inn to be a quiet and unique place as is Tilghman Island, and also within an easy drive to other places of interest such as St. Michaels and Claiborne. Because of the Inn's location by the woods and water, be sure to be prepared for insects when you go outside.

Bob and Tracy make you feel like family and make their home yours. From the " AWESWOME SAUCE '' welcomes to the scrumptious homemade breakfasts to the antique touches of yesteryear, you pack your cares away the minute you enter the property. The setting couldn't be more lovely, and the welcome couldn't be more heartfelt. Can't wait to make a return visit.

Do you have boat slips if we come by boat and stay overnight in one of your rooms?
Tilghman, Maryland
Our dock is very exposed and shallow. Fishing is good, hanging out with our nesting ospreys is also fun, but having a boat there is not possible.
