We stayed for 3 nights in the syringa suite and enjoyed our stay at Talus. The house itself is amazing, and the grounds are not far behind. We spent a lot of time in town and day tripping (Schweitzer Mtn, Silverwood Park) but enjoyed the time we got to hang out on the property. The property is located very convenient to town. Very helpful and respectful staff, would go again!
I love this place and the staff and the doggos! We will be back. It was magical and peaceful and full of supportive and spot on suggestions for dinner and things to do. We also splurged and got chocolate covered strawberries and massages, all very last minute that the staff was happy to support us with. We're very happy about our stay!
I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at Talus Rock. The staff were so friendly and accomidating. I felt like they were friends by the time we left. This was a surprise for my husband, and they were part of it. We both had massages from Petra- the best. Seven course meal prepared right with us by renowned Chef Chris Arlo. His stories were as fun as the food was absolutely fabulous. Frank Sinatra singing softly in the background. We stayed in the Arbor Room. Don't miss this lovely unique room. Walk the grounds, swim in the pool. Experience this magical place.
Unfortunately we were only able to stay at Talus Rock Retreat for an overnight On our way to explore the Canadian Rockies. This property is so cool. I highly recommend that you stay here when visiting the Sandpoint area. We stayed in the Kipling room. The staff are friendly, kind, professional, I could go on and on. They added so much to our stay by making us feel genuinely at Home. Enjoy.
We just returned from a visit to Sandpoint and a stay at the wonderful Talus Rock Retreat. What a piece of paradise hiding away just minutes from downtown. I so wish we could have stayed more than three days, however, we will be back. There are so many things to love about staying here. One highlight worth mentioning is the Private Chef Service. Chris will entertain while serving up a feast. Just show up hungry and then plan go for a long walk afterwards around the beautiful Talus Rock property. See you again!!
They double book our room, and put us in a small room off the hot tub. Upon entering the house smelled horrible. We were shown other options but none of them were as private as we had been expecting, especially with large gaps under the doors. The staff was very nice, the puppy was cute, but had left poop on the floor that looked like it had been stepped in. Was a very disappointing evening that left me in tears.
I have to say this has been the best B&B’s I have encountered on this side of the country! I came here on a solo reprieve/rest/retreat from the everyday stressors of my little life. (Long story). The atmosphere, the rooms (I peeked into lol the empty rooms as I was mid week and near off season) are exceptional! This appears to have been a family home that is now turned into a B&B (I haven’t researched I order to give a heartfelt disclosure.) The space, the grounds, the staff are all exceptional! I have had add on features (massage x2 plus a rose bath I haven’t enjoyed yet but am so excited for!!) The people here are open, friendly, honest and real. They are genuinely interested in who they meet in this space which also is heartwarming. There is an infrared sauna for use. Big soaker tubs in most rooms with the exception I understand of a ground floor suite to accommodate alternately abled peoples. (I do need to check that for accuracy) I am here at the beginning of off season and would’ve hoped for a cooked breakfast, however I was not completely disappointed with the self serve options available. The nutrition needs for mystic (which sadly are many) were accommodated for and I was happy with the outcome and fueled for the enjoyment of my time here. I highly recommend this B&B and will do so!! Such a GREAT experience! I WILL be back!!…
I meant disrespect to the staff or owners in writing this review. It is lovely space, and everyone was kind. The bed was comfortable. The acoustics in the shared space are terrible. The guest chef's voice was piercing, and carried throughout the building. My husband went downstairs at 930pm (after several hours of hearing him) and asked if he would quiet down a bit. It would be a great space if your party has the whole house, otherwise, not a good option.
My fiancé and I randomly chose this place and we couldn’t have been happier. The staff was very friendly and super cute little dog greeters were a great touch to make it feel like home. The house is beyond amazing. It’s just far enough away from town to make you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but close enough to still enjoy Sandpoint. We will be back for sure.
Loved the grounds, the home and the family that runs Talus Rock! Super close to town but you feel super a million miles away! LOVED the dogs that live there, too! Super helpful with hiking and dinner recommendations.
