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.

My wife and I stayed in the ARBOR room for her birthday. She told me I earned "1 million points" for this. Wow, the most I have ever received in 14 years of marriage. :-). I recommend this place highly.

Where to start - it was all so wonderful. Bed & breakfasts can be hit or miss, and this is one of the biggest hits that I can recall. The property is perfectly situated so that you feel like you're nestled in the woods. We walked in to a wonderful greeting and introduction to the house & grounds. Heather was... More

Excellent location, relaxing environment, uniquely decorated retreat with a wonderful hostess who shares her life and that of her family freely. Heather makes you feel at home the minute you arrive. Her commitment to servicing those who serve others is not just words but something she puts into action in her own life. She has passed on her heartful of... More

Oh where to begin, I guess at the beginning. I am a New Yorker, we are used to big buildings, high floors, concierge service, restaurants, bellman, and all the things associated with the "high end" hotels of the world. On a late June night I called the Talus Rock after searching for hotels in Idaho. Now mind you I have... More
