We stayed one night in the Hideaway and the next two in the Grand Arbor. Both rooms were wonderful in their own ways. The hideaway is minimalistic and allows for one-on-one time. The Grand Arbor is even more beautiful than the pictures and the double-headed shower was phenomenal. Even more so than that, Heather and her family made us feel... More

Room: Our room (Grand Arbor room) was AMAZING. It is a very tall room, with not a ton of floor space. But that's not a bad thing. Bed was clean, comfortable, and inviting. This room has the most amazing shower you'll ever step foot into. There is a faux tree that has branches that become the 2 large shower heads.... More

Talus Rock is truly a Rivendell for all who enter it's borders. An elegant oasis, made even more beautiful by the lovely people who own and operate Talus Rock. While the house itself is beyond breathtaking, decorated elegantly; the people of Talus Rock are even more so . Never in my life have I been welcomed anywhere with such warmth... More

We had a combination business /pleasure trip, and Talus Rock Retreat was one of the suggested accommodations. Heather was so wonderful on the phone, and in person,and really worked to get us the two rooms we needed, since they were full. The place has been lovingly decorated, and the team there obviously love working there. They have a fascinating story... More

This was a great find after a couple of mediocre hotels on our road trip. We had the Grand Arbor room, and really enjoyed our brief stay. Stunning timber frame home, with lovely eclectic furnishings. Comfy bed, weird and wonderful shower...It really is worth staying here.

We were welcomed warmly on our arrival, wonderful people here. Our room was beyond amazing. We had a great times enjoying the grounds with our kids and interesting guest and fantastic host made this a highlight of our holiday. Fed chickens too! My kids are still talking about this place.

My husband and I traveled to Sandpoint and Talus Rock Retreat for our 25th Anniversary last week. It was so amazing! Being our first bed and breakfast, we weren't exactly sure what to expect. We arrived around 6:30pm, and Heather, the owner, greeted us in the driveway with the warmest, welcoming smile and big hug. She quickly brought us into... More

Talus Rock is beautiful ... The photos accurately depict the rooms, common areas, grounds and views. This retreat is best for a couples get away unless you are renting the spacious large suite on the lower level as most of the rooms sleep two. Heather (the owner) makes you feel like a long time friend coming for a visit. You... More

The house is unbelievably georgous! Every room in it makes you want to stay in it! We stayed in the Noma... More
