The Black Walnut was recommended by friends that had stayed here in the past. This inn did not disappoint. We stayed four nights. Beautiful Italian style building in a beautiful setting. We felt like we were in Tuscany. The rooms were well appointed and clean. Such a friendly and helpful staff. The breakfasts were full of wonderfully delicious choices made to order. We loved the Black Walnut!
Best memories: Hiking perimeter of vineyards at sunrise during harvest, swinging under the walnut tree, visiting unusual wineries recommended by staff, watching the orange harvest moon rise over the valley from the fireside patio. Best attributes of inn: The grounds and inn are beautifully appointed, AND...the staff, including Emma are truly the gem of this place. They were quick to share their knowledge about the Black Walnut vineyard, the Dundee hills and surrounding wineries. Their enthusiasm was infectious, we couldn't wait to drive to some outlying vineyards and just explore the Willamette valley. Best takeaway: Trading a bottle of wine from our area with the staff, a visit to the Abbott Claim winery with its underground tasting room AND knowing that we will return to this hilltop inn again!!
Loved it! The place is beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, the food was amazing. We added on a wine tasting and dinner. Both were great. The view on the patio can’t be beat. We will definitely be coming back.
