Property 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 lodge, this exceptional property caters to those who appreciate nature combined with old world charm. USA Today named Talus Rock Retreat "THE place to stay..." in their article naming Sandpoint "Top 10 most Beautiful Mountain Towns".

With 8 private bedroom/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, wedding, an indoor catered holiday gathering, or other 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 just over 1 mile from downtown Sandpoint, City Beach, local shops and many fine restaurants, and only 5 miles from the base of prime skiing or summer fun on Schweitzer Mountain Resort.

Keywords: pond, mountain views, retreat, peaceful, perfect for family reunion, exclusive, lodge, tranquil, villa, getaway, unique lodging, wedding venue.
