Too much of a good thing is Wonderful

5 on August 13, 2009

My husband and I just completed a six night stay at the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake, California. Our accomodations were spacious, deluxe, comfortable, and luxurious. I can't say enough about the gracious and welcoming staff. The hotel grounds were beautifully landscaped and eating in the garden patio was a delight. Food is readily available at the Blue Wing Saloon (a companion property right next door) - food is well prepared, plated, and a great value. And just when we thought things couldn't get any better - they did. We happened to be there for a four night blues festival that featured great entertainment from a wonderful solo acoustic mastro to terrific killer bands. I never wanted to leave and without a doubt we will plan on visiting next year.
