We stayed two nights recently at the Black Walnut Point Inn. Bob and Tracy were gracious hosts. Our room--the Talbot--is on the second floor. There are three steps down into the room from the hall--and three steps from the room to the private bathroom. The bathroom is adequate. The shower reminded me of some cruise ship showers. It's tiny. The staircase going up does have a low ceiling that challenged my 6'3" frame. Fortunately, I only bumped my head once. The queen bed slept great. I wish the pillows were better. There's also a twin bed in the room.
I enjoyed walking in the early mornings, watching the sun rise over the water and the birds in the sanctuary. The water in the pool is cool but refreshing after the shock wears off. (A heater would be nice.) There are a variety of lawn games, plenty of hammocks and chairs near the water, and also a hot tub. Inside there are board games, a piano, and a guitar that guests are welcomed to use.
Breakfasts were tasty. A better variety would have been nice. They featured pancakes one morning and french toast the next. They served a tasty egg dish both mornings. There was also fresh watermelon (and a little cantaloupe). A few cereals are there for people who wish to eat them. A small variety of snacks was available 24-7--vanilla Oreos, trail mix, and pretzel bites. I'd love to see Bob and Tracy kick it up a notch--maybe homemade cookies and granola instead of purchased varieties.
