From The moment you enter the driveway you feel as though you have found a little piece of heaven! You drive up and the sweetest dog Panda greets you in the drive way and follows you into the house! 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

From the warm welcome from Heather, Shava and Mayumi, to the eclectic and beautiful decor and grounds, we experienced 4 wonderful days there. The bed was really comfortable and the design of every little thing was over-the-top tasteful and wonderful. If... More

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

My husband and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary at Talus Rock Retreat and what an amazing weekend we had! From the time we walked in, to the time we left, we felt so welcomed and loved on. We enjoyed walking around the pond, listening to the bullfrogs and enjoying the country sounds. Our room was very comfortable (the Grand... More

I was surprising my wife for our 22nd Anny. We have never been able to leave our children home in 22 years, due to some issue, child care etc., so this weekend was big. I'm a small business owner and prefer to put my hard earned money back into the same. I web-searched B & B's in Sandpoint & called... More

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
