Black walnut guest house was my fiancé and I's first bed and breakfast experience. Geri exceeded our expectations, even before we arrived the expert customer service with prompt emails confirming our arrival time. The moment you walk inside you are met with a spa like aroma. We were led to our room and in the hallway shown a buffet table... More

Incredible hostess, great room, in-room served organic breakfast, and privacy. Loved the dish cable tv, private back door parking and entrance, and wifi. Highly recommended, we loved it! Can't go wrong here, worth every penny.

We stayed in the Cabin Room and were made welcome by Geri right away. The other rooms were occupied, so we were unable to peek at them. There are some DVDs that can be borrowed to watch on the DVD player in your room and there is also a radio/MP3 player to listen to music. The home is in a... More

The Black Walnut Guest House completely exceed our expectations! This was our first time to Door County and our first time ever staying in a bed and breakfast, and I have to say we will certainly be looking for similar experiences in the future. We stayed in the Eastlake room; the jacuzzi was incredibly relaxing and the bed was cozy.... More

Our first bed and breakfast experience was a success! Right from the start of reserving our room, Geri was amazing! She helped search for a wonderful massage since it was booked here. The Cabin Room is neat with a fish tank and creative design! Every aspect of the room is very clean. The food is delicious and the cookies are... More

This review is long overdue. We stayed for the weekend in Sturgeon bay to celebrate our anniversary. Husband and I like bed and breakfasts and have stay in several in the last 5 years. This one was the best so far. The owner Geri was very accommodating. We arrived very late and she was there to check us in. We... More

The Black Walnut Guest House is a very charming, cozy, and romantic bed and breakfast. The Arts and Craft Room was outstanding. The warm and cozy feeling of this room made for a wonderful weekend.
