Without a doubt, this is a slice of paradise. It's a quiet, serene and peaceful sanctuary for birds and "love birds". We have stayed there twice and definitely intend to return in the future. The cabins are outstanding; clean and comfortable with a side porch to look out on to the Chesapeake and watch the sunrise and sunsets. We enjoyed the pool, walked the grounds and were able to capture the sights of many species of birds. Bob and Tracy are the most welcoming innkeepers. They made our stay very enjoyable and the breakfasts they made were delicious. You can't help but enjoy yourself here...it is paradise!
My husband and I celebrated our five year anniversary at the Black Walnut Point Inn and it was absolutely incredible. The inn is very secluded on water and it's so idyllic. You can watch the sunrise AND the sunset, being the inn is on the peninsula/end of island. Bob and Tracy were unbelievably kind and welcoming to us. They made us breakfast in the morning and had coffee and tea ready. We would enjoy breakfast and then sit on the porch with our coffee. We spent time reading by the pool and felt like we had the place to our entire selves. We stayed in the Attic Hideaway and it was perfect for the two of us. We ventured into town for some seafood on the water then brought a bottle of wine back to split as we watched the sun go down. We will definitely be back!
OMG, this place is heaven on earth! If you want to really disconnect from the world, completely decompress, be with nature, and appreciate the many gifts of nature with a ton of gratitude and serenity, you go to this place. Of course, you could go to be mesmerized by the beautiful sunrise AND sunset without getting into the car, you could go for nature photography or write a novel or paint or meditate or have a wedding or any other celebration/retreat or JUST BE! With just a few rooms and 3 cabins with such expansive land and water all around, it always feels like you are on your own private island. We stayed in the Red Cedar Cabin & loved it. If you can afford it, the cabins are totally worth the money for the privacy, the closeness to the water, and being able to just walk out & have everything right there. Sitting on the covered porch protected from bugs while still enjoying the views and eating our meals was heavenly. Breakfast served in the main house was simple with egg souffle and pancakes or waffles or french toast. We don't care much about the food - the experience of sitting on the porch overlooking the lawns and water with birds chirping is what we loved. We saw jellyfish in the water, a pair of sea hawk parents in their nest, another sea hawk perched on a tree with a large fish in its claws while another eagle waiting for its chance to get that fish, and bunnies running around. We watched the beautiful sunset from the hammock while sipping wine. Woke up at 5.15 am to watch the sunrise! A few things to note - it is a small island so plan ahead for lunch & dinner as St. Michaels is about a 25-minute drive to restaurants although there are a few small restaurants on the island which is still at least a 10-15 minute drive. We often just didn't feel like leaving this place - fortunately, had backup stuff we carried and were able to make some quick meals in the cabin. There were a LOT of flies which I suppose is part of nature - next time we might carry something stronger to trap the flies. Bob & Tracy, the innkeepers, are a beautiful couple - very friendly, funny, and helpful. They compliment each other really well - you will see the contrast in their personalities and styles quickly. We enjoyed chatting with them and bought autographed copies of a series of 3 books they have published titled Dual Citizen. They have a podcast and some very interesting stories to share. We plan to make this our regular spot whenever we need to get away from the rest of the world and lord knows, these days we all need to do that periodically!…
This B&B, in a remote, quiet, secluded section of the Chesapeake, is, literally, a hidden treasure. Locked behind several fences and gates, your privacy is guaranteed. The breakfasts prepared for the guests are next best thing to gourmet, and the rooms are comfortable, clean, and quiet. Whether relaxing, hanging out by the pool, or hiking/biking/driving to the local sights, there's something here for everyone. Bob and Tracy provide an exceptional experience.
We very much enjoyed our stay there. It is a unique place at the southern end of Tilghman Island, and easy to relax, sit back, listen to the birds and watch the bay. And the hosts were friendly and helpful.
We had a lovely stay at the Black Walnut Point Inn. Tracy and Bob were most welcoming and their pride and love for their inn is easily displayed. Our room was comfortable and pretty and the grounds are breathtakingly landscaped with an array of beautiful flowers and trees. Their property has much wildlife to enjoy as well. We are planning on returning in the fall to enjoy all its beauty once again. Thank you Tracy and Bob!
This place is Awesome. Great place to watch the sunrise and sunset. The view of the sunrise is right outside your window of the cabin Good place to relax and enjoy the scenery from your own private screened in porch !! Ready to go back there. Loved it!!!
The view is beautiful and that’s as far as my positive statements will go. The cabin was uncomfortable, the screens were ripped in the windows and the double paned glass windows had moisture in them along with stickers on all of them. The furniture was secondhand store quality: tables with uneven wobbly legs, grungy sofa, the light switches were irregularly wired and idiosyncratic. We were uncomfortable and didn’t even want to shower in the cabin. Some of the windows were taped shut and you couldn’t even open them, because they would not stay up, and being fall we wanted fresh airz There was absolutely no concern or love or pride visible in how they handled the cabins, it was just a money generating rental situation. If the question is would I return? Never Is the answer.
Such a beautiful place!! I stayed here for my wedding weekend. The location and hospitality was outstanding. Bob and Tracey went out of their way to make sure we were all taken care of. From the cabins to the view to the breakfast each morning. They always made sure we were taken care of and had everything we needed. It’s clear that they cared not only about the property but their guests and their lives as well. Their humor was contagious. Every morning you wanted to just get up and watch the sun rise with a cup of coffee. Every evening you wanted to sit with a drink and watch the sunset. The house is built in the 1800’s so is it older? Of course, but that’s part of the charm. It’s warm and inviting. It’s quaint and cozy. You just want to sit there and read a book or watch the butterfly’s or the deer. Someone woke up and looked out the window and saw a bird fly by and then two deer walk by like it was something out of a Disney fairytale. I always felt comfortable and safe. It was so much fun. I can’t wait to go back!!…
We visited as the Autumn season was winding down, and the experience of being right out on the point was, for us, unique. I was awake early on the morning of our stay and went out and walked the grounds as the sky began to lighten. As dawn developed, there were watermen out working to the East of the point, and also osprey working as well. Our room was very nice and the ground floor lounge spaces even nicer. The covid induced pre-prepared breakfast was only o.k., but otherwise the whole experience was special.
