We were travelling up to Canada, with no planned stops. We saw a sign to Old Town, and went for a look. Upper Lake really is in the middle of nowhere and we were not expecting anything special. However, when we saw the hotel, we went "Wow!, but it'll probably be way to expensive for us." We went in, and...

The Tallman is a beautiful, tiny, ,lovingly restored property. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. If you have mobility issues, be sure to request a first floor room, as the buildings have no elevators. The staff is attentive, the property lovely. It stands out among the casinos and sketchy mom-and-pops in the area. They were flooring the dining room,...

We were delighted from the moment we arrived in this quaint town. The hotel and restaurant look even better in person, which is unusual. We had the good fortune to arrive for Sunday brunch and hear a wonderful bluegrass group. Our pleasure was doubled in that area when we went to the Monday night Blues session and had the time...

We had one of the Main Street suites. It was well-decorated, clean and spacious for the two of us. The entire property is very well-done and pleasing. Fun to sit on the porch with a glass of wine and some cheese watching the world go by. Small town, basically quiet and peaceful. Easy access to surrounding wine country. Even a...

We were on a wait list for a Murder Mystery dinner. We received a call about 10 days in advance, stating there was a cancellation and we were in. We booked a room and received a confirmation email. The confirmation stated there would be no refund if we canceled with less than 3 days notice. We arranged childcare and period...

We first stayed at the Tallman Hotel in the summer of 2008 and fell in love with it. We vowed to return and finally got a chance to do so this September for our 10th wedding anniversary. This stay was just as good as the first. Please see my review from August 2008 for additional details. We especially enjoyed the...

A fantastic B & B style hotel. Stayed in the main hotel and one of the cottages. Both were great. The main hotel's rooms are the closest to the pre-1930's style. The "continental" breakfast is amazing. Fresh scones and Quiche made on premisis. We held a wedding rehearsal dinner in the main dining room of the hotel and had it...

Stopped overnight in Upper Lake and stayed at the Tallman. What a find! Anderson Valley wines are excellent. Lake County is beautiful. The town of Upper Lake is charming. And the Tallman Hotel and Blue Wing Saloon are the best in the area. Meticulously restored, the Tallman Hotel is loaded with antiques and period pieces, without lacking in modern conveniences....

After a long, hot dusty day of driving around Clear Lake, CA it was a complete surprise to pull into the charming town of Upper Lake and enter the oasis of Tallman Hotel. The main building is a beautifully restored Vistorian mansion where each morning a delicious breakfast is served. Our room was spacious and charming with a huge bathroom....
