Long Description:
From the Hotel's website: "The original Tallman House Hotel was built on the current site in the 1870s by Lake County pioneer Rufus C. Tallman. The hotel was part of a full-service facility consisting of hotel, livery stable and saloon designed to serve passengers traveling to Clear Lake and the nearby hot springs resorts. By the 1880s, Upper Lake had become the terminus of the Cloverdale and Clear Lake stage lines, which brought tourists to popular resorts such as Witter Springs, Saratoga Springs, Bartlett Springs and the original Le Trianon at Blue Lakes.

The original Tallman House Hotel burned to the ground on October 29, 1895. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that “it was a large two-story structure and had always been a popular resort. The loss is estimated at between $3000 and $4000. It is said not to have been insured.” The next year, Tallman reconstructed the hotel, using a more modest floor plan and materials (mostly redwood) in abundant supply in the area." (visit link)
