The Black Walnut offers more than just a place to rest your head. Choose from a wealth of activities and experiences designed to help you create the tailor-made sojourn of your dreams.
Internationally acclaimed Master of Wine Bree Stock selects wines that are exceptional not only for their substance, but for their substrate as well — the core philosophies of the owners, winemakers, and vineyard managers who nurture them. With an eye toward wineries that are stewards of the land, equitable employers, and active members of their community, we think these wines taste even better knowing they are made by phenomenal Oregonians.

As any wine professional will tell you, wine education begins in the vineyard. Let us take you there, glass of wine in hand. Hop into a luxury ATV for a ramble through the pinot noir and chardonnay vines with our vineyard manager, Ryan Hannaford. Learn about our biodynamic farming approach and the elements of terroir that lay the foundation for each successful vintage. Walk among the vines, pepper Ryan with questions, and linger with a delicious picnic prepared by our chefs, if you so choose.
The perfect day calls for a perfect ending. Our culinary team will provide you with exactly that — with a thoughtful, seasonal prix fixe menu available each weekend to guests of the Inn. Served in our cozy dining room or on the terrace as weather permits, each dish is designed to surprise and delight the senses.

Every area of the Inn was top notch from the lovely exterior of the nine room Tuscany style mansion to the interior decorations which my wife truly loved. The living room area with fireplace and grand piano is such a welcoming space to have a nice glass of Pinot Noir from the valley while the outside patio with heaters, cornhole boards, music, and chairs make for an outstanding place to enjoy the property during your stay as well.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a wonderful two night stay. Everything was top quality: gorgeous view of vineyards, Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson from our balcony, and outstanding, friendly service from the staff. We enjoyed the farm-to-table gourmet dinner on the patio, excellent wine selection, and breakfasts in the airy dining room.
