The Black Walnut Point Inn is a secluded gem. This Maryland private island haven has been sealed off by Russian spies, the first Gulf War was planned in the sunroom, and Truman Capote was a guest in the 60’s. Now the sanctuary gate secures the half-mile drive through 52 acres of bird sanctuary before opening to our 6-acre island of gardens and lawn. The sun rises over the Choptank River and sets over the Chesapeake Bay, which makes wind, waves and endless water views the hallmark. A pair of nesting eagles, resident osprey, migrating butterflies, waterfowl and songbirds are commonly seen along with Bay dolphin; and the back cove is a spawning grounds for rockfish. At night the stars are uninterrupted, another surprise of nature, making lodging at Black Walnut Point Inn a quiet, secret place of peace
– all just an hour and a half from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
