We travel to the Ithaca area 3 times a year and the Black Walnut B&B is a senic drive 'up the lake' from town. It is also a 1/4 mile from the Americana Winery, which serves a great lunch and has exceptional wines. We found the hosts to be warm and friendly without being intrusive. The rooms are all different, each with their own personality. The Blue Moon is our favorite room at the end of the hall. We look forward to our next trip to Ithaca and our stay at the Black Walnut.
