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!

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. We had a room with separate lounge seating area, all very comfortable. Heating was efficient and kept entire apartment at an appropriate temperature (including the bathroom which is essential when it was less than...

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!

We have many guests who come here for a getaway and appreciate that it's not too far to drive from the larger urban areas. They often park the car and settle in to their room, dine at the Blue Wing restaurant right on property, do a little wine tasting across the street, browse the gift shops on Main Street, and...

Many of our guests love the historic hotel rooms - those high ceilings and the antique plumbing and inviting wrap around porch. All of our rooms have a front porch or veranda, which makes a nice spot for an early evening glass of wine or cup of coffee or tea in the morning. We do in fact have the cleanest...

Friends stumbled upon this charming hotel in the middle of almost nowhere, so we had to go see what they were raving about. It was just as they described: charming, elegant, relaxing, beautiful....

We are pleased that word of mouth has been spreading about our hotel. Upper Lake is a very small town, just off Highway 20, and visitors are often pleasantly surprised to find our hotel, our Blue Wing Restaurant and a few quality gift shops on Main Street.

The garden and grounds are part of what makes the Tallman Hotel so inviting. The beautiful Sycamores provide much welcome shade in the summer, and the chef at the Blue Wing Restaurant uses the herbs in the garden for various menu items. Fall is a beautiful time all around the lake, and visitors to the 30 + tasting rooms enjoy...
