My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as a getaway babymoon. We stayed in the adorably quirky Dogwood room, which is in a turret and has three sections: a cute little alcove sitting room, the bathroom with a claw foot tub and the bedroom with a painted sky in the turret. It was very charming! The inn staff:... More

My wife and I came to Asheville for a Honeymoon getaway, and the Black Walnut was by far the highlight of our stay. The place is immaculately clean, the beds were an absolute delight to sleep on, and the tub / fireplace combo in the Ivy Room is the stuff dreams are made of! I also can't stress this part... More

We stayed four straight nights on our only visit to Asheville. The husband and wife owners are nice people and still anxious to please after 13 years in operation. Rooms are large and comfortable and the antique furniture matches the age of the gracious old mansion. Breakfasts are excellent and the afternoon wine and snack session not to be missed.... More

As our third bed and breakfast, we feel we did well at Black Walnut. This place is exactly what wife and I want in a B & B: old historic house, antique furnishings, great hosts, good food.....it is all here. This place is just a few blocks from downtown Asheville. There is quite a history to the place and surrounding... More

For my wife & I this was our 2nd visit to Asheville. In 2013 we actually stayed at the Lion & The Rose, the B&B next door to the Black Walnut. The inn is simply beautiful. We stayed in the Ivy Garden Room on the 1st floor. Very nice & romantic. The only downsides are (1) window air unit so... More

Upon arrival I realized I had made a booking error. Beth, one of the wonderful staff, assured me they could accommodate us. We were relieved and spent 3 fabulous days with Pete and Lori.

Friendly, helpful host and hostess. Excellent breakfasts and snacks. Well appointed and comfortable room. Lovely, authentic antique décor. Easy walk to town. On site parking. I would happily stay here again and for those attending the Montford Sreet Art and Music Festival, you can just walk outside the door and be there!

WOW, I will try my hardest to describe the amazingness that is The Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast. We first arrived around 630pm and were greeted with cookies, wine and other small appetizers.
