Our son and his girlfriend surprised us with a stay at Talus Rock for our 46th wedding anniversary. We, and our entire entourage of kids and grandkids, were treated to a delightful tour of this unique and beautiful home and the surrounding property. It is amazingly beautiful without being overwhelming at all. They even welcomed our big dog! Once our... More

Each year we get our 10-person family (6 adults & 4 kids) together at Talus Rock during the "Lost-in-the-50's" car show weekend. It is a perfect venue for us. The kids especially like the outside area where they can try to catch frogs or water bugs in the pond, swim, and do kid stuff. They especially enjoy roasting marshmallows for... More

This past February, my wife I had an opportunity to spend our anniversary without one of our 4 kids... So on a Friday afternoon I started calling around to local 4+ star resort/rooms in the Spokane, CDA area. Including The Davenport, NW Casino, etc. Noone had vacancies! So on our last search we stumbled on Talus Rock Retreat. WHAT A... More

My wife and I spent mothers day and my birthday at Talus Rock with our four legged son Niko. Once we arrived we were greeted by Heather (the owner) with a wonderful smile and huge hug. This was our first time staying in a B&B, so we were a little nervous at first. After about 5 minutes, Heather and her... More

My wife and I loved our stay here. The owner, her family (and dogs), and the staff were all super friendly, and gracious hosts. The home is immaculate and amazing. I love seeing all the exotic architectural and decorative pieces from the family's travels that have been integrated into the home. We stayed in the Grand Arbor room which is... More

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

We sincerely appreciated your feedback, and we took it so seriously that we spent a day to debrief, discern, and take responsibility for our shortcomings mentioned in your reflection. To err...

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...
