Alex and Brian made us feel very welcome from the get go. Talus rock is beautiful and so cozy! The hideaway was as pictured, and the space heater kept us warm on a chilly night, although we could have started a fire in the stove as well. Kitchenette had everything we needed for a short stay. Breakfast was delicious, and we enjoyed chatting with the other guests in the main house. Thank you for the hospitality Alex and Brian, you two are wonderful and we hope to come back soon!

The Hideaway was the perfect little retreat for our two night stay in Sandpoint. We loved the coziness of the cabin and it was a nice treat to also use the amenities of the lodge on the property. The cabin had everything we needed included an attached bath. The heater kept us nice and warm as well as the fire pit outside. The innkeepers were very welcoming and responsive to our questions. They cooked us a delicious breakfast and we enjoyed lounging around the lodge in the mornings and chatting with the other guests. The views from the property were stunning and we would definitely stay here again when in Sandpoint!

The Hide Away was an amazing and romantic escape for my wife and I! We were greeted very warmly and treated like family by our hostess. We had a lot of private time together in our lovely little cabin on our honeymoon. It was cozy and made us lose all track of time together. The location was located not to far from downtown Sandpoint and the beach. We enjoyed every minute and can not wait to visit again!

This place is spectacular! Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. My husband and I felt very welcome to roam the grounds and the house. Alex and the other staff were extremely friendly. Stunning views, a lovely trail to walk, and even the sweet doggies put this place over the top. I would highly recommend this to my friends

Thank you, Connie! We are so glad you loved the place. Thank you also for mentioning the mattress - others have told us they love it, but we want EVERYONE to be comfortable. Now that you have mentioned it, we will either switch it out or put a pillow topper on it.

Hubby and I spent two nights at Talus Rock, one in the hideaway cabin and one in the main house. Whichever you choose, this is a special property owned and run by exceptional people. "Glamping" option was cozy and fun with many thoughtful extras to discover in the cabin, including marshmallows to toast in the firepit. The timber frame main house is gorgeous, the owners have filled it with creative design elements from their travels and everywhere you look there is something unique to admire. As great as all this is, the best part is the people, so kind and generous. They love what they do! Add the view, pond, privacy, sweet dogs, chickens, 3 moose strolling through and deer in the morning, wow! Plus you may bring your well behaved pup. Brian's breakfast is excellent . . . could go on but will get corny so I'll just end with 5 stars in every way!! Thank you Heather and Alex !

Response from Talus:
Haha, we LOVE corny here, Sheri! You would know if you ever heard Brian's jokes ;). Thank you so much for such a thorough and glowing review. We were blessed to have you two here and hope we get to see you again sometime!

We loved our night in the "Hideaway". Heather was so kind and welcoming. Every one of her staff was friendly and helpful. The little cottage is in a perfect little clearing that gave us privacy but was a quick walk to the main house, pond, pool and hot tub. The cottage is comfortable and so cute. We felt like we could move in and be perfectly happy there. It had everything we needed. We cooked our dinner on the hotplate and ate outside by the campfire. We used the paddle boards at the pond and had fun paddling around and swimming. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed walking around and exploring. The main house is beautiful with nice places to sit and relax and enjoy the view if we wanted to. The breakfast we were served in the morning was fresh and delicious. We would have loved to stay longer and and would love to come back some time.

This God-inspired vision of husband and wife is a response of gratitude to His blessing on our family. Together, we have created this home as a love letter and retreat to serve those who serve others.

May He forever bless this offering as a place of rest for souls in need of healing, love and peace. And may we always remember to be unconditionally generous in helping others with the abundance He has allowed us to enjoy.

In keeping with this core vision, lodging dollars spent here help support local missions as well as international humanitarian efforts. The Pedersens have a heart for causes that improve the lives of orphaned and at-risk children, help curb third world poverty through animal husbandry and improving the overall health care provision in rural developing nations. This unconventional social venture, known as Talus Rock Retreat, has consequently allowed guests to become extraordinary patrons of many meaningful organizations.
