I'm not a big B&B user as I find I am oft disappointed in the value of staying in one. Jack and the Black Walnut B&B changed that for me. Wish I had more than one night to stay - it was so great. Jack was a host way before we arrived for our one night stay. He gave trips...

It was a sincere pleasure hosting you two on your journey around upstate New York. As you now know, a one night stay in our area barely covers all there is to see and do. I appreciate you choosing the Black Walnut; thanks very much, and please come back!

We were in the Finger Lakes for a wine tasting weekend with 3 other couples, and we had the place to ourselves. Jack had no problem with us sitting around in our jammies drinking wine and eating his delicious brownies! Breakfasts were a real treat! We'll definitely go back next time we're in the area!

The Black Walnut B&B is one of those places you want to tell everyone about because it is so awesome but not tell anyone so you can save it for yourself. The location was perfect. Close to many attractions on the Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. The atmosphere was casual and welcoming. Jack was knowledgeable, friendly and caring and really does...

Jack couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Went with 3 other couples so we had the entire house to ourselves. Excellent hot breakfast. Clean rooms & comfy beds. Coffee maker & flat screen tv's in each room. Jack also made great recommendations for dinner.

Wonderful stay! Innkeeper Jack greeted us and made an excellent restaurant recommendation for the first evening--Hazelnut (apple soup was outstanding.) The living room is inviting and cozy. Izzy the cat is a great companion--just cuddled up to us--guess he knows cat people when he sees them! There's a lovely sun porch for afternoon sitting, sipping tea and browsing places to...

Our first time at a bed and breakfast. Was surprised that I enjoyed the peace and quiet at this place. We were offered brownies (which I can't eat as I am gluten free) and was told that wine was being served about 6 pm. We went downstairs and enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch before leaving for dinner....

My fiancé and I drove over 6 hours to get to the finger lakes and it was so worth it! We spent three nights here.

This small, intimate B&B is wonderful. Very good breakfast and the perfect spot on the wine trail. Our room was very clean and spacious. Occasionally some time some truck noise, but do not let that you shy away from this fantastic home away.
