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

Hosts are wonderful and kind-hearted people. I would highly recommend during both summer and winter stays! From the facilities to their lovely dog Panda, Talus ranks above most hotels, let alone bed and breakfasts

Talus Rock Is a home away from home. Heather, Shava , and Mayumi go the extra mile to make you feel like Talus Rock is your home. From the minute you arrive and kick your shoes off in the foyer. To letting you take over their kitchen because you love to cook. So to be blunt if you are reading... More

It took me a while to figure out how to review this place... While the property is beautiful, our stay did not meet my expectations, especially when considering the price ($275/night + tax). Pros: I would like to start by saying that Heather and the staff were all very nice and the property was beautiful, I also very much respect... More
