Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast Information


Located just outside of Trumansburg, NY in the hamlet of Covert, The Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast is part of the Covert Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Records indicate that the inn was built in 1802 as a farmhouse for a Mr. E. Cole. Lovingly maintained and comfortably updated, the Inn offers four charming rooms on the 2nd floor, each with a private bath and amenities including: Flat Screen HDTV with Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Wireless internet access New beds with plush linens and multiple pillows Iron & ironing board Individually controlled Heating and Air Conditioning options Hair Dryer Plush bathrobes Complementary (and sustainable) shampoo, conditioner, and body wash Sloping ceilings and wide plank floors The farmhouse charm extends to our common areas where comfy chairs invite you to cozy up with a good book, and the beautiful oak table (Mennonite-made in Penn Yann NY) is ready for games and puzzles. The enclosed sunroom is the perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine, and the gardens and grounds deserve an exploration in and of themselves. Wake up to locally roasted coffee, home-made baked goods and granola, and farm fresh vegetables, meats, eggs, and dairy. The Finger Lakes region is overflowing with small farms and businesses growing and producing delicious foods, and the Black Walnut is committed to providing you a small taste in our breakfasts. A few favorites include the sweet potato, spinach, and bacon frittata, and baked french toast made with local Challah bread. Gluten, dairy, and meat free options are always available with prior notice.
