My husband and I escaped for a couple nights to this beautiful location to recover and relax after the stress that inherently accompanies a wedding. While our wedding was fabulous and memorable, staying at Talus Rock was the icing on the cake! We saw the website when searching for a B&B or Lodge in Sandpoint, and the pictures sold us (along with the mission statement we read on the site). However.....the pictures on the website just give a glimpse of the beauty and majesty of this place!! We were stunned and awed at how gorgeous this place was in person. We stayed in the Arbor Room and loved the open shower and tree theme, not to mention the gorgeous copper ceiling and the windows that looked out onto the pond and beautiful grounds. There are so many gorgeous decor items and unique design details all over the "house"! Be sure to read the booklet that details so many things you could possibly miss if you didn't know they were there. So......all this being said.......a place can be gorgeous and architecturally astounding, but if the people who live there are not warm and loving, the memory will fade and the experience will be less than fulfilling. Thankfully, that is not the case here, Heather was nothing short of amazing and friendly and you immediately felt special and like part of the family. We were honored to hear the stories Heather shared of her trips to India, and she left us inspired and motivated to give back and serve with joy! These people are special and this place will leave you in awe!
