What a hidden gem. The Tallman Hotel is just beautiful. The rooms here in any other major metropolitan area would go for at least twice as much. The proprietors have spared no expense in this historic site's restoration. Curtains, bedding, wallpaper, upholstery fabric etc. are all sumptuous. No detail has been overlooked. Book a garden room and enjoy the Japanese...

We often have guests who park their car and don't get back in until they leave. It's convenient to have our Blue Wing restaurant on property - open for lunch and dinner - and just down the street is a lovely tasting room, two nice gift shops, and one or two collectible stores. As the weather warms up, sitting around...

This hotel is beautiful and well kept in a small lake town. Breakfast was delicious and the views are beautiful! Great restaurant next door. Close to many wineries! It was the perfect location away from the chaos.

Lake County, and our little town of Upper Lake, are becoming more and more well-known. Many of our guests come here, park the car and don't get back in until they have to go back home. We have our Blue Wing Restaurant, the Upper Lake Mercantile down the block, a few other small gift shops down the road, a tasting...

I had heard that this hotel was a great place to stop, but I did not have the opportunity to stay until recently. The hotel did not disappoint! The lobby and room were clean and well decorated. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The room itself was larger than expected and very well furnished. The morning breakfast was OK. It...

The owners and their interior design consultants took a great deal of care in planning and implementing their ideas for the decor and furnishings. The four rooms above the historic hotel have more of the period decor in the room and also in the bathrooms, with the large clawfoot tubs and refurbished, antique plumping fixtures. Weekdays we offer a complimentary...

Very nice, small hotel (just over a dozen rooms). Great service, great rooms. Breakfast is nicely prepared and presented. Scones, great raisin toast, hard-boiled eggs, house-made granola, etc. On some days, small quiches are included. If you are looking for a get-away, give this a try!

We offer a buffet-style, complimentary Continental breakfast on weekdays and weekends we have quiche available, always a popular option. Many guests come here for a getaway, park the car and don't need to drive anywhere for their stay: Blue Wing restaurant on property serves lunch and dinner; Jacuzzi open year round; tasting room across the street; three charming gift shops...

Staying at the Tallman was a real pleasure. Check in was efficient and personable, the room was extremely spacious and a fantastic bed, great nights sleep.

All of our suites have a sitting room with a sofa that folds out into a queen size bed, and these rooms are popular with families. We also appreciate that the rooms heat up, or cool down, quickly. Many guests are pleased that they can park their car, check in, have lunch and/or dinner at the Blue Wing Restaurant and...

I had a lovely stay at this historic B & B. The room was tastefully furnished and comfortable. The soaking tub was terrific and allowed some needed relaxation. My only disappointment was the lack of breakfast offerings. While juice, toast, banana bread, hard boiled eggs (should have been shelled for the convenience of guests), a small bit of fresh fruit...

Our Japanese soaking tubs, or ofuros, are our most popular rooms, in winter or summer. Guests appreciate the privacy and the calm ambiance that the private back deck affords. Our complimentary Continental breakfast does include quiche on weekend days but not during the week. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you here again in the coming months.

The restoration/rennovation of this historic property is beautiful. Stayed in a room with the japanese soaking tub and definitely got in as many soaks as possible. Totally worth it. We have family in the area and this is favorite place to stay as a special treat.

Our "ofuro" rooms are our most popular rooms, and guests love soaking in the tubs, rain or shine. The owners put much thought into the renovation of this historic hotel. The rooms above the main hotel building have the high ceilings and refurbished antique plumbing in the bathroom and shower. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see...

The Tallman Hotel and next door Blue Wing Saloon have been beautifully restored in Lake County, CA and we spent a wonderful two days there, celebrating New Year's Eve. The ambiance is lovely, with perfect period decor, a great get-away, not too far from SF or Sacramento. Highly recommended!

Many of our guests love the historic hotel rooms - those high ceilings and the antique plumbing and inviting wrap around porch.
