Overall, our stay at Talus Rock was GREAT. We cruised into Sandpoint just to "check it out" and decided we wanted to stay. A customer of mine had recommended Talus Rock so we called em up. Heather said we were in luck as they had one room available, The Arbor Room. The room was so cool! Huge tub, two person... More

I can not say enough about Heather and her staff!! Their hospitality and genuine kindness were evident throughout our stay. We stayed at the retreat for five days and pretty much had the grounds to ourselves. Our grandson had the best time ever having the pond to fish from just steps away from the Nooma Room. The younger kids LOVED... More

I mean WOW!! What a beautiful place! Such detail in every room. We rested well! "Retreat" is exactly what we needed. Thank you for the comfort of your home and for the help getting us where we wanted to go! Great place to stay and I highly recommend!

My wife and I stayed one night at this amazing house. The guest rooms are large and vary in decor. Our room was clean and tucked away from the common areas. We enjoyed visiting with Heather and the British house manager, Stephanie. I wanted to stay longer!

First and foremost, this is somebody's home. It's a B&B. It's not a corporate hotel. If you want the corporate hotel experience, go elsewhere. It is an amazing house. The grounds are amazing. The vista from the living room is amazing. The wife and I would get our morning hot drinks (Do not test the hot water dispenser with your... More

Wow! Talus Rock was the perfect place for our family reunion. There were 41 in our party so a couple family members stayed at a nearby hotel. But I have to say... There was more then enough room for our daily gathering. Every room is a suite with bath and shower. There are 2 full kitchens and beautiful grounds that... More

I really wish I could write a good review for this place. First the good things. It's beautiful! Everything about the place exudes peacefulness. Very eclectic and really ebraces the rustic enviorment of the west and a retreat center. The not so good is that with the rustic came with a rundown appearance and frakly dirty. We staryed downstairs in... More

Firstly, without hesitation, I sincerely and humbly apologize for offending you. As an owner, your perception of my attitude, has jolted me to attention and I’d like to assure you I absolutely meant no disrespect. Gosh, I can’t imagine I was so abrupt and sincerely offer up a heartfelt humble acknowledgement for coming off as flippant. In reflection, at that... More

First off, Sandpoint is great. Wonderful food, beautiful lake...quiet and serene. For a five night stay, we chose to stay at Talus Rock because we like B&B's, peaceful settings and something unique and different. I had a few reservations about this place based on some of the previous reviews but the owner assured me we would love it there so... More

We chose Talus Rock from a search for elopement packages and are SO glad we did- Heather is a wonderful, accommodating, & welcoming hostess that made it all the more amazing of a stay (as if the scenery & beautiful property wasn't enough)...would stay again & highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat
