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

The hotel is beautifully refurbished with careful detail to it's old West past. We stayed in one oft the additional garden rooms that were also decorated in Victorian style but nice amenities like A/C, modern bathroom, an outdoor Japanese soaking tub in the private patio, and outdoor shower. We met some very nice folks at the hotel pool also staying... More

We accidentally chose this hotel and we were lucky to do so. Excellent hotel with great and warm hospitality. We enjoyed the very nice room. We suggest to improve the breakfast. The Japanese tub was a good surprise. The next door restaurant is good.

This hotel is clearly owned by people who have traveled a lot and know how the little touches make a huge difference. Nice soft robes and molten brown bath products is appreciated. The gardens have multiple understated points of interest, featuring sculptures and local artwork. I really like this place. It is a great weekend getaway spot. I would describe... More

One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. Beautifully restored rooms, thoughtful details, lovely grounds and a fantastic, simple breakfast. They have done a great job incorporating modern comforts into their elegant, Victorian design.

The Clear Lake area is really on the rise and this hotel is what the area needs more of. We have always just flew through Clear Lake on the way to the coast, however, recently we have made it a destination for short getaway stays. We live in the foothills near Sacramento, and the Clear Lake area is about an... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Tallman in the past and had great experiences. This time it was very different. We drove a good 2 hours out of our way headed from Calistoga to the Coast to stay at the Tallman entirely due to the prospect of the private Ofuro soaking tub. After dinner, we went to soak,...

It is obvious no expense was spared in restoring this historic hotel. Rooms are comfortable and roomy. We especially enjoyed the ofuro tub on the enclosed patio of our garden room. Beautiful gardens shared with the Blue Wing Saloon and Restaurant, owned by the same proprietors. Hand painted murals decorate the breakfast room. For breakfast we had the best crossants... More

We live in the Napa Valley about 1 1/2 hours from Upper Lake and enjoy a quick adventure away from our life here. We travel up the eastern side of Clear Lake stopping at the junk and antique stores in each of the small towns and spend the evening at the Blue Wing Cafe and the night at the Tallman.... More

Thank you for your kind words. We agree that our little town of Upper Lake has come a long way, and we are indeed fortunate that Mendocino National Forest is so close to us. There are also some nice walking and hiking trails fairly close to the hotel. Kayaking is an option as well! More
