This is a beautiful home in "Colonial Revival" style, which retains many original features. Our room (the Aviary Room) was thoughtfully furnished and a delight to stay in, with its wicker chairs in a separate sitting area. Peggy is a kind and welcoming host, who provides a breakfast of a quality beyond what you would normally expect. The house provides...

My husband and I spent three nights at The Spalding House while we attended a music festival at the convention center. We felt very at home, and Peggy is a delightful hostess. Our room was comfortable and quiet. Just like at home, you may have to put up with neighbors playing their music too loud, but the nights are quiet....

The Spaulding House is on a street with other beautiful houses - mansions really. The house is simply beautiful, almost all original. Peggy is a wonderful host - friendly, unhurried, welcoming. We enjoyed sitting with her and talking over her great breakfasts. We had full use of the living room and gardens. The Aviary Room is a smallish room with...

We stopped at the Spalding House during Thanksgiving week and we were very glad we did! Peggy, the hostess and owner, was gracious and welcoming. Or room was really beautiful and very clean. The bed was comfy. There was some next-door neighbor radio noise during the day. We had full run of the place and sat in the living room...

You feel like you are on a film set in this beautiful period house. Walking distance from shops and restaurants and well placed for the national parks. Delicious breakfast and charming owner happy to share the history of her home.

Historic house built in 1901. Very charming throughout – and the host lets you have the run of the place. A very nice value. You can walk to the very nice downtown. A couple things on the negative side… There was a fair amount of car noise from street (on Saturday night). Also, breakfast was served without any question about...

Spalding House is the best recommended B & B in Visalia and quite rightly deserves this honour. But why stop in Visalia ? well this is the perfect jump off point to visit both the Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon in a short space of time. Visalia is a small American town with a fairly big population set in...

Peggy Davidson, the owner of Spalding House B & B, welcomed us with a smile that made me feel like I already knew her and was coming home. Her beautiful historic home reflects the warmth of her personality with comfy beds, sitting rooms with a large selection of books and magazines, and a quietness that comforts a weary traveler. This...

This beautiful old home is well-kept and friendly. Peggy cooked a 3-course breakfast that puts other B&B's to shame! Easy walk to main street's shops, restaurants, and entertainment. Worth getting off hwy 99 for.

“The Aviary room is very unique and probably quieter but it is also smaller than the other rooms.”

“At this time, Peggy is only renting the Spaulding and the Aviary rooms. The Spaulding Room is a bit larger and has a larger alcove - but it faces the front of the house. The Aviary room is in the back.”
