Attended a winemaker’s dinner, and it was a fantastic event – amazing wine, amazing food, fun atmosphere.

Welcoming Guests to Black Walnut

Our rural setting and open spaces mean that our area has been fortunate to avoid the worst of the current health crisis. As part of our ongoing safety procedures, we have partnered with Enviral Tech to implement periodic surface testing scans to confirm our spaces are safe for our guests and our team. As another precaution we are also performing ongoing surveillance testing among our Inn staff. We’ve adjusted certain elements of your visit while ensuring you will continue to receive our customary warm, attentive service. Reach out to us by telephone or email and we will be happy to answer any questions about our current practices.

  • All employees will follow CDC guidance for hand washing and hand sanitizing.
  • Hand washing or sanitizing stations will be available in common areas.
  • Our staff will pass a health check or complete a health survey prior to each shift.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

  • We are using enhanced standards to clean and sanitize all guest rooms and communal spaces.
  • Our cleaning products and procedures meet Oregon Health Authority sanitization and disinfection standards.

Guidance in response to COVID-19 is evolving as we learn more about the virus and ways to keep our guests and team safe. We will update our standards and policies as necessary as we receive new guidance from the CDC, Oregon Health Authority, American Hotel & Lodging Association, and local and state government requirements.

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.
