Talus Rock Luxury Lodging is truly a piece of heaven on earth. My husband and I had the blessing of staying the weekend at Talus Rock to celebrate our 15th Wedding Anniversary. We have been through a lot together and needed a place to take a breath. I have been battling breast cancer since the end of 2014 . I...

We stayed for two nights at Talus Rock to celebrate my wife's birthday. The property is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained and the house itself feels incredibly warm and inviting. We sat on the porch as three moose made their way to the pond adjacent to the house. We also explored Sandpoint during the days which is a very nice little...

We found this gem of a bed and breakfast online and it was everything it promised! The property was a wonderful oasis of peace, with wonderful views from the main room. Our room, the Kipling, was cozy and wonderfully decorated. Brian and Alex were wonderful hosts for our anniversary getaway. Especially enjoyed the hot tub and the fireplace! Definitely a...

Gorgeous building. Friendly helpful staff, dogs and chickens. Very close to town but you feel as if you are in your own little world. I like supporting family businesses. This family goes out of it's way to support the local community, the veterinary community and does regular charity work outside of the country.

Sandpoint isn't the easiest town to navigate and this place took a bit of effort, but the reward was worth it. The first indication that this place was exceptional was the handcrafted front door. Seconds after that was the wonderful greeting from our host Heather who treated us as though we were friends she had been anticipating for months. At...

Susan and I are fans of special B & Bs and over the past 30 years we have found just two that were exceptional, now we have three! Talus Rock is a true labor of love, painstakingly created by the owners over many years with an eye to design and comfort. The main building is both warm and welcoming, as...

We found this magical place, by searching lodging close by, as we were finishing up our adventure through the Canadian Rockies. Our room was so relaxing in every way! Soaker tub for 2, a double headed open shower in the shape of a tree, incredibly comfortable bed, copper tiles on the ceiling above the bed. Such attention to detail everywhere...

In medieval terms, romance was a term used to describe stories of adventure and mystery. Not to be over-dramatic, but from the moment one enters the forest of this stunning estate, there is a feeling of peace and beauty; a sense of wonder. This feeling only grows as you approach the home and walk about within. The rooms are comfortable...
