This is a beautiful place to stay. The house is gorgeous and the breakfast was great. I wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Grand Arbor room, it was as outstanding as it looked in the pictures.

Talus Rock is one of the most unique, and warm environments I've ever stayed in. I don't know why I feel so at home when my home looks nothing like the B&B mansion. The innkeepers Alex and Brian are warm and friendly, owner Heather is wonderful, Mayumi is sweet and it just has a good vibe! If you like hotel... More

When we got there, the staff was so friendly and accommodating. The ceremony was wonderful and grounds and view were spectacular. The breakfasts were... More

The heart of the building is a spacious great room crafted from exposed wooden beams mostly harvested from the site and decorated with unique touches of character by the owner from her world-wide travels and...

The inn keepers, the other guests, the pups, the view. This is EXACTLY what my pup and I needed to rejuvenate our souls. One day wasn't enough! I stayed in the Hideaway - a tiny cabin on the retreat property. It has it's own fire pit with wood provided, a swinging hammock chair on the front porch (which was also... More

We were so sad that we arrived at night and left in the morning. You really need a full day to appreciate this wonderful place. Named after a former beloved dog of the owners, this place is dog friendly. But also has a high standard for humans. It was a family home and still has that feel. Each room with... More

My husband and I spent one night at Talus Rock Resort during our 8 day Idaho road trip. This is home is the nicest, cleanest and most interesting bed and breakfast we've ever stayed in.
