I had planned an impromptu getaway for our anniversary and could not have been more impressed with the hospitality and accommodations! From the moment we walked in we were at ease. The energy of the home is so welcoming and peaceful and that didn't change! We stayed in the Hideaway cabin and it was perfect for us! We loved having...

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...

Talus Rock Retreat is a unique and exceptional inn. The owners and innkeepers have created a magical environment that we will talk about for years.

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...

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...
