A rustic combination of charm, boutique hotel amenities, and bed and breakfast hospitality, the Tallman Hotel is dedicated to providing our guests with concierge-level services.


The Historic Tallman Hotel

After nearly 40 years of neglect, Upper Lake, California’s historic Tallman Hotel re-opened its doors to guests in 2006. Decorated in the “East Lake” style, our fully restored, historic boutique hotel features 17 unique rooms, a sun washed sitting parlor, and an elegant, period furnished dining room with hand painted walls.

The Tallman Hotel’s beautifully appointed accommodations feature a variety of room styles including three Bungalow Suites, an ADA accessible Farmhouse Suite, and four Lower Garden Rooms equipped with traditional Japanese Ofuro soaking tubs on private patios. Our entire hotel property is a smoke free environment.

The Blue Wing Saloon Restaurant

Adjacent the hotel, our full-service restaurant and bar, the Blue Wing Saloon Restaurant, is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.  The restaurant serves delicious gourmet pub fare year-round. During warm weather, enjoy an al fresco brunch, lunch or dinner on our tree shaded garden patio or on our heated veranda. Join us for weekly concerts featuring Lake County’s abundant talent, as well as world-class musical acts.

The Upper Lake Mercantile

The Upper Lake Mercantile is the latest addition to the Tallman Hotel family of services. From jewelry to jams, paintings to plants, furniture to ferns, our eclectic “country store” offers an ever changing inventory of unique, useful, and upscale items for the home and body. Stop by our shop during your stay. We’re located under the clock tower, just up Main Street from the hotel.

Ofuro Tubs

For a private experience, relax and rejuvenate in one of the Tallman Hotel’s four Lower Garden Rooms featuring private patios with outdoor showers and traditional Japanese Ofuro soaking tubs. These exquisitely produced teak soaking tubs provide the ultimate stress escape, restoring personal harmony and balance.
