My fiance and I booked a weekend trip at the Tallman Hotel in January of this year, with the idea of getting away from our busy city lives and doing absolutely nothing once we arrived!! Upon pulling up to the beautifully restored building surrounded by streaming, yellow lights, charming courtyard fountain with an overhead veranda and even a saloon, we knew we'd have no trouble finding ways to relax.
We were then greeted at the front desk by James, with a warm welcome and handed the keys to our heavenly abode. Ahh, the ambiance...Victorian style interior, with stairs leading to 4 substantially-sized rooms tastefully designed with plush, king-sized beds, mini-bar, private access to the small table and chairs awaiting on the veranda where we shared a bottle of Barbera Cabernet (from our favorite winery located just a few miles from the Tallman). One musn't miss out on the luxury of the oversized, freestanding, clawfoot tub...don't forget to bring some bubble bath! Follow-up with a rinse in the uniquely designed stand-up shower which provides a waterfall type faucet and even water supplied by vertical pipes to spray from the waist down!! Take advantage of the sweet smelling Moulton Brown bath products imported from London and then wrap yourself up in the his and her waffle bath robes (my fiance loved it so much, he purchased one for home).
To satisfy that hunger which lingers in your belly from all that relaxation, go next door to the Blue Wing Saloon for the tastiest Caesar salad and mouth-watering Mushroom Ravioli!! And if all those pints have gotten the best of you and you feel like dancing, the Senior Citizen channel in your room can provide the entertainment with a smooth touch of classy jazz music!!! Oh, and it doesn't stop there...wake up in the morning, put that robe back on and head downstairs for homemade scones, orange juice, fresh fruit and chirpping birds :)
