My wife and I stayed at the Talus Rock Retreat last month (Sept., 2013) and had a wonderful experience. I would recommend Talus Rock to any and all of my friends and family; what a delightful adventure. Our hostess, Heather is a very warm and welcoming hostess and made us feel quite at home. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable, but the "little things" (a cup of hot coffee in the afternoon, a fire in the fireplace, interesting conversation with Heather) made us believe Heather really cares about her guests. Don't miss this extraordinary experience!

What a beautiful part of our country Sandpoint, ID is located in! After a seven plus hour drive, my husband and I were greeted by our lovely hostess, Heather, along with her sweet dog, "Panda." Such an awe-inspiring get-away - unique in every way, yet welcoming, warm and relaxing. Our suite, the "Arbor guest room" included a magnificent octagonal copper-colored stamped ceiling and double headed tree shower.
Lovingly decorated and maintained, Talus Rock Retreat stands as a testament to the Pedersen family, who have worked hard to create a special place where they can "serve those who serve others." We would highly recommend that anyone considering a vacation in Northern Idaho check here first.

Room Tip: Visit the Talus Rock Retreat website and choose the room which best fits your needs. Whichever one...

Beautiful, rustic retreat with panoramic views. Magnificent, warm, charming and relaxing. Our room was extremely comfortable and uniquely decorated. Has something special for all age groups. The keeper of the keys extremely kind, considerate and helpful.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique. Depends on your needs.

This unique spot offers something for everyone. It is an amazing structure with each room lovingly made special. The grounds are wonderful! Beautiful scenery - a swimmable pond with paddle boat, pool and jacuzzi make it a relaxing and wonderful experience! Hostess Heather could not have been more interesting and helpful! If you want a break from motels as usual, this is for you! We had a marvelous time and loved every minute...

Room Tip: We were in the Kipling room and loved our view and the association. The suites downstairs were just...

Room comfortable, staff welcoming, breakfast and layout unusual. Interesting architectural features, but it would have made more sense to have the toilet roll holder within reach of the toilet. Pint size bathroom and a loft which seemed to have no purpose.

We stayed at the retreat when it first opened. It was an extraordinary experience then,having the whole ground floor to ourselves. I just happened to get on the site today wondering if the picture they had taken of us was still on the site but it wasn't.
Someone said that it was not worth the price, I can't imagine what their expectations are.
Wonderful place and I'm thinking of a family reunion there.

What a lovely bed and breakfast! Very private retreat - we loved meeting Heather and Rebecca, both were extremely helpful and friendly. Our dog enjoyed playing with Panda. We are looking forward to our next visit!
