This is a stunning property. The room was beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A totally relaxed atmosphere at a property owned by people who are extremely generous and spend time helping those less fortunate, the back story in the booklet in the room shows people with heart.

Talus Rock is a hidden gem! Beautiful property with a view that makes you want to do nothing other than sit in one of their comfy chairs, drink hot tea and chill. The hosts provide the privacy to do just that in addition to wonderful breakfasts, puppies to pet, and warm enlightened conversation. If you can get out of your...

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 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...
