The Tallman Hotel is located in the small western town of Upper Lake, California. It is a good base to explore the emerging wine country of Lake County, not far from Clear Lake and just north of the Napa Valley. The Tallman Hotel was originally built in the 1870s by Rufus Tallman at the end of the stage line into the County from the north and west. He also owned a livery stable and the Blue Wing Saloon next door. The hotel was fully restored and reopened in 2006 by Lynne and Bernie Butcher. Additional buildings, pools and gardens were added by the Butchers in addition to the re-creation of the Blue Wing next door as an upscale bar and restaurant. The hotel now offers 17 elegant rooms, most with private verandas and some with private Japanese "ofuro" soaking tubs. The Tallman Hotel is listed as a Point of Historical Interest on the California Register of Historic Places. Has Launched! is a human-curated, invitation only

presentation of select historic lodging accommodations,

including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.


Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably

significant to world history with respect to their architecture,

engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,

design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer

travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.


They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to

connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,

excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.


Sadly, countless historically significant structures

have been (and continue to be) lost forever.


Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the

vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising

proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort

and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities

reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
