Sandpoint castle description

Escape to the privacy and peacefulness of Talus Rock Retreat for your special getaway. A private, chic, and eclectically elegant timber frame and Tuscan-style retreat, this exceptional property caters to those who appreciate nature combined with old world charm.

With 6 private bed/bath suites available from which to choose, the cozy provisions can be enjoyed by a couple for a weekend getaway, a romantic honeymoon, a pristine mountain vacation, or a simple get-away to enjoy rejuvenation and inspiration. Or, take the tranquil villa in its entirety to accommodate an intimate extended family reunion, a spectacular rehearsal dinner, an indoor catered holiday gathering, or other non-traditional group affair with lodging.

These exclusive, one-of-a-kind provisions are perfectly situated and secluded on an 18-acre playground with year-round outdoor adventure - a dream come true for guests who crave the convenience of being close to downtown while having 8,300 square feet of private luxury. Comfortably sleeping 24, Talus Rock Retreat is only 2 miles from downtown Sandpoint, City Beach, local shops and many fine restaurants. We are only 5 miles from the base of prime skiing or summer fun on Schweitzer Mountain Resort.
