Talus Rock Retreat
Ranked #1 of 7 Sandpoint B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Talus Rock is a beautiful home and so much more. We were welcomed with open arms, given a tour and made to feel right at home. The view is stunning and peaceful although only minutes from downtown Sandpoint. Heather, Bruce, and family and their assistant Stephanie invite you into their world, sharing their love of the area. When we asked for recommendations for dinner several suggestions were given. Once we decided, Heather called in reservations for us. It was one of the best dinners we have ever had! The restaurant was Trinity at the Beach with a lovely view
Heather and family are full of ideas if you want to get out and see the town and enjoy the area or if you prefer a peaceful reflective time, they encourage you to sit and have a cup of tea by the fireplace and enjoy the view. The snow and the view of the mountains were spectacular for a winter retreat...the pictures of the summers there are stunning!
Their home seems to go on forever with eclectic style. The rooms are a unique reflection of Heathers travels and named after their children. My husband said he was so extremely comfortable there that he could have easily taken a nap in the living room.
Our room (and I think most of them) have really nice on-suites.
We hope to get the opportunity to go again. It would be a beautiful place for a retreat or wedding. This is the place to stay in Sandpoint!!

Talus Rock Retreat is the perfect break from the face pace of everyday life. My fiance and I were ready for a much needed respite from our busy schedules and from the first time Heather and I spoke to our saying goodbye, it all was so easy. The property is nestled back in the trees, minutes from downtown Sandpoint. Gorgeous scenery, exceptional architecture (a Montana based company, of course!), and the most welcoming and generous hosts. We had a wonderful time relaxing and sharing life experiences with Heather's family and adorable pets. We felt right at home, like family- thanks again for making our stay simple, enjoyable, and memorable. We will return, perhaps for our wedding!

Room Tip: The Arbor Room- a must! The basement suite for larger parties- beautiful and spacious

Our large group of friends traveling on a ski vacation were fortunate enough to find Talus Rock Retreat by chance and we are all quite sure that we will return in the near future. Yes, the house is an amazing feat of architecture and design, the view and surrounding property are breath-taking, and the skiing at Schweitzer couldn't be better, but the reason we will return is simply because of the Pederson family. They are amazing people who have committed their lives to helping others and giving back to the world. We were welcomed with open arms and our every need was met. We give it an A+ or 11 out of a perfect 10. The Juneau Purple Bus Crew

Right when we came in the owner Heather was so welcoming it felt like I was visiting my family, also next day we went out to eat Hearher told us all the good spots to go and visit I think she knows pretty much everything about Sandpoint. I defenatley want to come in the summer time again :). Thank you Heather for a welcoming stay

My husband and I couldn't have imagined a more perfect place to find rejuvenation for our family. Talus Rock Retreat is nestled quietly in the woods offering breathtaking views of the mountains. We had a blast exploring the property and it's just a quick shot to Schweitzer. Their hospitality and friendliness was extremely refreshing. We will always be staying here when we visit Sandpoint.
