How To Help Out Hotel Talisi Fire Victims

Though not technically on Lake Martin, Tallassee’s Hotel Talisi has been a regional attraction for decades, until early this month.  It was destroyed by an alleged arson.

The new owners of Hotel Talisi have apparently lost everything, and are in need of our help.  A donation fund has been set up by one of the members of forum.

If you would like to help out, please send any donation to:

Bodenburg/Shores Fund
c/o Banktrust
P.O. Box 780607
Tallassee, AL 36078
(334) 283-7000

Any donation will help.  According to this post on the forum, “It is a total loss…..Some really great local folks put a lot of work into refurbishing it. It caught fire from a building behind which caught fire. A wonderful couple who moved from Minnesota were living in and managing the hotel. They got out with their lives Thank GOD, however, they have lost everything including their jobs and insurance.”
