A secluded gem, this Maryland private island haven is one of the most unique spots on the Chesapeake Bay. Our gate secures the half-mile drive through 52 acres of bird sanctuary before opening to 6-acres of wildflower gardens and lawn surrounded by water. The sun rises over the Choptank River and sets over the Chesapeake Bay, which makes wind, waves and endless water views the hallmark. Nesting eagles, resident osprey, migrating butterflies, waterfowl and songbirds are commonly seen along with dolphin, otters and rays. The back cove is a spawning ground for rockfish, and is home to sustainable oyster farming. 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.
The point is a wild place, and because of our nesting birds and wildlife here, we do not allow pets or children under 12.
Our check-in time is 3pm – 5pm, and check-out time is at 11 am.
