We stayed at the Tallman Hotel for just one night and it was delightful. Warm and cozy with tasteful furnishings. The high ceilings in our room were wonderful and the fixtures in the bathroom were amazing. We stayed in one of the Veranda rooms and to be able to walk around the top of the hotel and enjoy the fresh...

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.... Our room was wonderfully appointed and cozy, so we just relaxed after a day of driving. Breakfast in the elegant dining room was also a great experience,...

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. If guests prefer a breakfast filled with plenty of protein, we recommend a...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a two-night stay in one of the Tallman Hotel's Veranda rooms. Immediately upon pulling up to the property we were impressed with the beauty of the grounds. The check-in process was pain-free and quick, and we were able to access our room immediately after arrival. The bed was comfortable, and the room was very...

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...

Had a wonderful stay at the Tallman Hotel! Everything from a garden area where you can dine al fresco to the hotel itself was 5 stars (in my opinion)! My room and bathroom was large and comfortable, with a balcony! Robes and an assortment of lotions, shampoo, conditioner, etc. were provided. The staff were welcoming and helpful! They even delivered...

All of our rooms have either a balcony or front porch, and our "veranda" rooms inside the historic hotel itself have a charming wrap around porch. It's lovely to sit outside in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea, or have a glass of wine in the early evening on your porch. We're glad you enjoyed your visit...

What a beautiful hotel! We were greeted by a very (but not overly and fake) woman at the front desk. Given a good description of each room, since we did not have reservations. We chose the Main Street Suite and it was absolutely adorable! Very clean and cozy but not small at all. The bed was very comfy, and the...

We're glad to hear that the water pressure was good! Our Main Street Suites are part of our "bungalow" house which also has an upstairs room which is one of the largest rooms on property. We have live music on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday evenings at the Blue Wing Restaurant. In warm weather the groups often play outside on the...

Spent a month here while in the area for work. Staff were all friendly and checked in with me frequently to make sure I had everything I needed. The upper garden room was comfortable with a nice size deck to sit and enjoy the evening. The grounds are beautifully landscaped giving a sense of seclusion. The breakfast room is a...

We're glad you enjoyed your extended stay at the hotel. Our little Main Street is starting to come alive, with a tasting room, mercantile, some new thrift shops, but it doesn't have the variety of shops and activities that a larger town or city might offer. We do have 30 tasting rooms scattered around the lake and some excellent walking...

Three girlfriends enjoyed a two night stay Sept. 5-7, 2016 in a charming, modern - but with period details - comfortable and quiet second floor suite (#16). The Tallman Hotel, which has been beautifully restored, serves breakfast to its guests in a lovely, light-filled dining room with hand-painted murals and an enormous breakfront. Breakfasts are simple but delicious and self-serve....

We're glad the massage worked out for your group. Your suite is the largest on our property but we also have 3 smaller suites. The pool and jacuzzi have been very popular this summer, and once cool weather moves in and the pool closes, the jacuzzi stays open for soaking. It's especially nice on chilly nights, under the stars. Thank...

This place is very pretty, and should be a nice place. Our visit went very poorly, and they made no attempt to rectify anything. I had to wait 30 minutes to check in because another guest insisted on checking in all of her people at once That may have made sense, but nobody else at the desk would wait on...

Once again we sincerely apologize for the frustrations you experienced during your stay on October 10, 2014. Back then, we responded to your original letter (10/20/14) and addressed the same issues you mentioned above. As stated in the aforementioned letter: We agree with you that the check-in process was chaotic that day and certainly not up to our usual standards...

We have quite a few business travelers stay with us and they appreciate the breakfast offered in the morning and also the fact that the Blue Wing, which is about 18 steps away from the hotel, is open for lunch and dinner every day. Glad you enjoyed the jacuzzi! Thanks for the comments.

We love the Tallman. It has become a tradition to spend my boyfriend's birthday and at least one another night during their blues festival, in an Ofuro room.

Our Blues Festival is one of our most popular events of the year. We also appreciate the varied bird life here in Lake County and there are several walks where one can see egrets, great blue herons, white pelicans and more. The lake attracts a nice variety of large and small birds. Thanks for the nice comments.
