About us

The Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast is located just outside of Trumansburg, New York in the hamlet of Covert.  The inn is part of the Covert Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.  Historic records indicate that the inn was built in 1802 as a farmhouse for a Mr. E. Cole.

The Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast offers 4 accommodations, all with private baths.  Amenities found in each room/suite include:

  • Flat Screen HDTV, with over 200 channel choices.
  • Wireless internet access
  • Iron & ironing board
  • Individually controlled Heating and Air Conditioning
  • Blow Dryer
  • In-room Coffee Maker
  • Plush bathrobes.

The common areas of the inn include our dining & sitting areas, a large country kitchen open to all guests, and a delightful glassed-in porch ideal for curling up with a good book or just taking in the garden.  An ice bucket, corkscrew, and wine glasses are available in the guest kitchen if you wish to enjoy a local wine you may have purchased.   Many guests enjoy getting to know our “mutt” Willy and our 14-year old kitty Izmir (please note that the pets are never allowed in the guest rooms).  Simply said, we offer a farmhouse chic home for your enjoyment and relaxation.

One of our innkeepers’ goals is to make breakfast a significant part of your stay at the Black Walnut.    Breakfast begins with a fresh cup of coffee or tea, followed by a satisfying meal and an interesting conversation around the dining table.   Our breakfasts include seasonal fruit (locally grown whenever possible), juice, breakfast meats, and a delicious and substantial main course.   The main course varies daily, and may include guest favorites such as Georgia pecan & banana pancakes with pure New York maple syrup or our spinach-feta-and dill frittata.   Breakfast is served daily from 830am to 930am.   Please notify the Black Walnut in advance regarding alternate serving times or dietary needs.
