Chef Dinner Series

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.


This summer we welcome guests to our Chef Dinner series, a new immersive culinary experience from Chef Chase Williams and the Black Walnut team. Journey from kitchen to table to patio in an intimate evening created exclusively for guests of the Inn. The eight-course menu builds from small bites into fully composed dishes curated to showcase the hyper-seasonal bounty of our local farms. Savor exquisitely paired international and local wines selected for the inspiration they provide in our menu creation. Thoughtful details will delight throughout the evening, culminating with a fireside dessert course shared together on our patio overlooking the lush valley below.


  • $200 per guest, limited to 18 guests.
  • Dinner begins at 6:30pm.
  • Reservations close seven days before the dinner date.
  • We are happy to accommodate dietary requests communicated seven days in advance.

I’d like to write a negative review so we could keep it to ourselves, but I just can’t. If you want an incredible experience, especially if you’re in it for the wine, it’s the perfect home base. It is an absolute gem! But don’t tell anyone.
