Tastefully restored and re-decorated Inn. Comfortable rooms with privacy. Convenient adjacent bar/restaurant. Surrounded by vineyards, and quaint shops. Helpful and considerate staff. Would definitely recommend to friends.

We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality and good taste of the Tallman Hotel. It more than exceeded our expectations even though we were there on one of the shortest days of the year and the weather was wet and gloomy. The lobby living room was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Our room was spacious and very tastefully appointed.... More

The Tallman Hotel stands out for its beautifully crafted buildings which include were created with methods and techniques that are authentic to the craftsman period. The main building is a virtual rebuild of the original hotel, while surrounding buildings replicate the style and building techniques. If you like beautiful wood work and craftsmanship, this place is a joy. Generally, the... More

Thank you for the kind words and the details that you noticed regarding the architecture of the buildings. Our most popular rooms have the Japanese soaking tubs in the private back patio. They are a treat, especially for a romantic getaway! More

We were thrilled to learn about theTallman Hotel from a friend who lives in the area. The historic Tallman is a beautifully and tastefully restored boutique hotel--solid, cozy and hospitable. We were warmly welcomed by a friendly, helpful staff. While my husband slept in on a rainy morning, I delighted in the coffee (from a pottery mug) and the Sunday... More

They do everything right here. Large comfortable, beautifully furnished rooms and common areas, gracious and personable staff, lovely gardens, perfect (delicious and not fussy) continental breakfast--with hard boiled eggs. So many touches were special and memorable: ample counter space in the bathroom, fitted sheet on the king bed and the sheets were a beautiful subtle stripe pattern and divine to... More

We stayed in Room 3, in the old hotel. The room was all we expected, and more: high ceilings, beautiful colors, textures, fabrics, very comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was a special treat with a huge clawfoot tub and a shower we'd never seen before: in addition to the usual overhead dispenser (which was great) there were sprays from the... More

This is an amazing hotel in the middle of a small Western town. The room was decorated with custom made fabric and wallpaper. It had ample space and a balcony to look down at the bistro below. Oh, and what meal! Even the bath products were awesome. We were offered a light breakfast in the main building. Waitstaff and hotel... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tallman hotel last weekend to attend a wedding. Because of the remote nature of Upper Lake I wasn't sure what to expect for our accommodations so I was delighted when we arrived at the Tallman to find that the hotel was better in person than online. What a lovely hotel! We stayed in... More

We stayed here for a friends wedding. We had a 2 room suite so we could have another connected room for our kids. The staff was so kind and helpful. The food is fabulous! And the grounds are a delight to walk around and hang out in.

We've stayed at the Tallman 3 times over the years. We have stayed in the main historic building once and twice in a garden room with their Japanese teak soaking tubs outside on the private patio under the stars. The decor is beautiful, comfortable, and charming in every way. King size bed, luxurious robes, fragrant soaps/shampoos from England, fridge, TV/DVD,... More
