About Us

Elegant and Rejuvenating

Staying at the Black Walnut Inn was the perfect start to our vacation in Oregon. The views from our room (#9) were breathtaking. The bed was the ultimate in comfort. The breakfasts were divine. (We loved the hash and the crispy potatoes— wish we asked for the recipe). Looking forward to a return visit.

Meet Our Owners 

Rick and Erika Miller are based in Lake Oswego, Oregon, and enjoy frequent visits to the Inn to enjoy spending time with friends and new guests alike. An Oregonian with deep roots, Rick Miller is the Founder and President of the Avamere Family of Companies. The Millers care deeply about our beautiful state and generously invest their time and resources through many organizations that reflect their personal values.

The Millers have a true love and passion for the Black Walnut estate, vineyards and natural life found on the surrounding property. In addition to the 42-acre Black Walnut parcel, the Millers own the Fairview vineyard directly east of the Black Walnut vineyard as well as two guest houses on adjacent properties to the Black Walnut. More information on the Fairview and Vineyard Ridge houses may be found at dundeehillshomes.com.

Rick and Erika Miller purchased the Black Walnut in 2017 from the Utz family, who built the Inn in 2003 and ran the business for over 13 years.
