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

This is the place to stay in sandpoint! We arrived and were warmly greeted by Heather. She instantly made us feel relaxed and at home. We felt like family! This place is breathtakingly beautiful and heather and the others there make you feel so valued and important. We will definitely be back! Thanks for everything heather!

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

And if you are so blessed to be able to stay at this wonderful retreat - you simply MUST sleep in the Arbor Room. And don't rush away. When you wake up, watch the songbirds land on your balcony and take time to walk and reflect on the beautiful grounds.
