Look what's new! Now featuring great locales for Travel and Tourism!

Along with my passion for food that I started since I was a kid growing up and learning to cook from my Father. I also developed a love and passion for travel. My day job allows for me to put aside time and funds to let me set out and fill my soul with wonderful experiences near and far. I thought to myself....self would it not make sense to combine my passions for food and travel together...the answer a resounding YES!

I dedicate my first post to a wonderful spot in the heart of some of the most fertile farmlands and wineries in the world...

The Black Walnut Manor

The Loft - What a beautiful room, this photo courtesy of Black Walnut Manor.

Going forwards I will be presenting new locales and destination hotspots that I have personally visited in my travels.  I will write based totally on my personal experiences and will only recommend points of destination that have really touched me and would visit again in a heart beat! Let's begin our series with a little gem of a place that I feel is the perfect launch point to explore the Niagara Wine Country. 

The Dining Room where guest share a communal table and some lovely good eats!
The Black Walnut Manor is a beautiful boutique B & B located in Vineland, Ontario.The owner operators Carole and Mike are the consummate hosts attending to every detail to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.  Upon our arrival we were struck by the quaint surroundings, the lovely pool, the beauty of the suites and the food.
Carole is magnificent in the kitchen, the food that she creates for her guests is mostly locally sourced and presented simply and is very tasty. You can tell that she has a passion for food and has a definite flair for presentation. The food that Carole prepared for us on our visit was lovingly prepared, delicious and very satisfying.  The rooms are decorated in various styles but are all elegant, comfortable and luxurious. With orchards, farms and wineries so close by I think the only tough choice you will have to make on your visit is which place to visit first?

The Main Sitting Room
During our stay we were very happy to meet with Guests that visit the Manor. Everyone raved about how wonderful the Manor was and how stunning their suites were. On our visit we enjoyed the great company and learned that for many guests this was not their first visit! Repeat visits from loyal customers is not hard to attract with such a high level of service and comfort. Once you visit the Manor you too will most certainly be thinking about coming back sometime soon.
With it’s location in such close proximity to such great locales and attractions. There is no wonder why the Black Walnut Manor is truly a first class destination for visitors who wish for comfort, great food and a lovely place to get away for a bit to recharge.

Great Food and Sparkling from a Local Winery. Life is Good.
