When it comes to hospitality combined with creative arts and nature this is the place to stay. The owner and staff are super friendly and does everything they can to see to it that you’re comfortable. Creative and one of a kind architecture is also fascinating. Wildlife frequents the property. Recommend highly!

Everything about this looks awesome in the pictures and from the outside. However, the impressiveness disappears there. The towels in the room are all mis-matched and faded - like what you would pick up at a yard sale. The toilet paper was the WORST!!! When you pay a minimum of $200 for overnight, I don't expect single ply sandpaper. And,... More

I chose this venue to rent out for my wedding and when I think back on it I get tears just remembering how amazing this place was! First of all to the staff... Patti (manager) and Clay (handy man)... Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for the experience you allowed me to have at Talus Rock! I... More

Took a visiting couple with us for our first stay as a Valentine's day celebration. House & rooms are just as pictured. Patti our hostess was awesome. Breakfast is a light fare unless you order more ahead of time so be sure & review the web site or call. Cannot wait to come back when things are green!

Staying at Talus Rock is an experience that is a memory for a lifetime...the goodness and generosity of this family is immeasurable...it envelops the guests with unspoken opportunity to participate in this circle of virtue by just being in the present...opportunities also lie outside these truly unique walls within a short distance of Talus Rock for all who want to...

Magical, simply Magical. As parents of 3, we have tried to expose our children to memorable adventures, never knowing what will stick and what will not. Our two night stay at the Talus Rock Retreat was not only a memorable experience for our children, but it turned into one for my wife and me as well. The warmth and kindness... More

We stayed at Talus Rock for a weekend getaway recently. The retreat is close to town, but had a very private feel. The hosts were gracious, generous and very friendly. We enjoyed the house dogs and the friendly feel of the house. Definitely a relaxing and worthwhile getaway.

We chose Talus Rock as the site for our fall/winter wedding. The pictures on there website do not do the resort justice; every room is immaculate and no detail is overlooked. The scenery is beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding. The staff was very personable and were there for anything we needed. Will definitely be coming back... More

We so enjoyed the lovely setting of Talus Rock, the unique charm it provides, the friendliness of the staff, and the extra special hosts - the house dogs. The home is lovely and large - it would be a great location for a family or friend reunion, wedding or weekend away. The visit would not be complete without a walk... More
