A secluded gem, this Maryland private island haven is one of the most unique spots on the Chesapeake Bay. The sun rises over the Choptank River and sets over the Chesapeake Bay, which makes wind, waves and endless water views the hallmark. The area is rich with native wildlife. The back cove is a spawning ground for rockfish and is home to sustainable oyster farming. At night the stars are uninterrupted, making lodging at Black Walnut Point Inn a quiet, secret place of peace.

Smith Island is a great place to relax, recharge, and embrace small-town culture and old-fashioned values. Every visitor has different likes and dislikes. For some, they arrive with great expectations, while others arrive with no definitive plans and are happy to relax and laze at the Inn, pick up a book, or relax in the newly screened gazebo.
