About Us

Nestled in the heart of the Finger Lakes, the Black Walnut Inn is a 200-year-old farmhouse that sits near the western slope of Cayuga Lake in the hamlet of Covert. Our four cozy guest rooms were fully renovated in 2020 and provide a wonderful home base for touring the Finger Lakes Wine Trails, hiking the nearby gorges and waterfalls, and enjoying the numerous local farm-to-table restaurants and breweries. Each stay includes a delicious breakfast featuring locally-roasted coffee, homemade baked goods and granola, and farm-fresh seasonal produce. We invite you to make yourself at home and enjoy the sweet life of the Finger Lakes.

This beautiful old house has a few little gems to enhance your stay. Our guests love to sip coffee in the garden, relax and read in the sunroom, and play games around the locally-made communal table. In the evenings, we encourage guests to relax in a comfy chair and sip on the spoils from your favorite Finger Lakes winery. A lovely end to the perfect day.
