“Perfect, simply perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2007

My son and I stayed here on Jan. 1 and what a wonderful visit. We took the train down from Sacramento, which drops passengers off at Hanford, about 20 miles away. We took the bus to Visalia and the owner of the Spalding House, Wayne, picked us up.
Wayne and his house are one - both very warm and charming. The house is Colonial Revival architecture and Wayne and his wife bought this place 20 years ago and lovingly restored all the rooms and the exterior to perfection. There are three bedrooms that they rent out. All rooms are filled with wonderful antiques and there is a Steinway Grand Piano in the living room and the fire place was putting out it's warmth.
We stayed up another hour chatting with this very interesting man as he made us tea and hot chocolate then our wonderful room beckoned us to get some well needed sleep.
Breakfast was scrambled eggs and French toast and poppy seed bread with cream cheese and strawberry jam - all excellent. After breakfast we walked around the gardens and the ample porch and decided that we will definitely return.
