I loved almost everything about this special historic hotel in the hills and around Clear Lake, California. Exquisitely redone, everything about the interiors is lovely, soothing and comfortable. Many high-end touches without being 'snooty'. Very good taste in every detail and so unexpected in this very quiet location! The only drawbacks are the depressed area around the gorgeous lake, which... More

Lake County, an over-looked corner of northern California, is ideally located between wine country and the giant redwood forests, close to the Sierra's and California's beautiful coastline, north of San Francisco. We stopped in on a road trip from down south to the Pacific Northwest, but we were sorry that we didn't plan more time in this beautiful locale. The... More

We spent three nights at the Tallman, recuperating from our son's wedding. The hotel is beautiful and nicely furnished, and we liked the Blue Wing Saloon as well. The staff is also very nice. The town of Upper Lake, however, is not doing well--more than half the storefronts are unoccupied. This is also true of the other towns around Clear... More

We stayed one night in this lovely hotel. We enjoyed the room and the slightly odd -car wash style - shower. The staff were ultra friendly and helpful. Breakfast had plenty of variety and served in a charming dining room. We played a gig at the hotel and ate at the restaurant next door which was also just fine.

Just got back from a weekend at the Tallman for the Lake County Wine Festival. The grounds are lovely and well maintained and all amenities are top notch. Staff is courteous and helpful. Food while sitting in the courtyard is delicious and in a lovely atmosphere. To call this a hotel is really isn't right - this is an exotic... More

Absolutely wonderful hotel and dining experience. Immaculate room, super friendly and helpful staff, beautiful gardens, delightful pool, and incomparable meals in the tree-shaded outdoor dining area at the Blue Wing Saloon. Would go back in a heartbeat.

For luxury, comfort, and extremely pleasant service, the Tallman was first-rate. We had a large garden room with a deck and an Ofuro soaking tub--bliss after a grueling day on I-5. We never made it to the pool. The breakfast was deluxe by continental standards: fresh fruit, house-made granola, yogurt, hard-cooked eggs, scones and other pastries, good coffee. Blink and... More

Stayed here for the weekend. Had a veranda room in the hotel. Quiet, comfy beds, wonderful bath. Great breakfast in the morning. Attentive staff. Wonderful food right next door. Has a pool/ spa area. Sat on the veranda outside my room in the evening.

I bought a night's stay at the Tallman Hotel at a silent auction fundraiser. I had never even heard of the place. I took my 91 year old Mom for a birthday gift. We both LOVED the place. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The amenities were excellent, including the Molton Brown of London bath and body products in... More

The Tallman is a lovely, stylish hotel located on a sleepy one-street town miles from anywhere else. Don't expect any services in town except for the great corner grocery/convenience store- but that's ok, because the Tallman has a good restaurant, nice pool, live music and is really a relaxing oasis. The best restaurant food is the basics- burgers, etc. It... More
