“Excellent in everyway!”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

The facility was grand and overwhelmingly beautiful - set in this bucolic and peaceful environment, it was absolutely amazing for my wife and I to enjoy! As magnificent as it was, even greater was the host and hostess towards us to make our stay as relaxing and recalibrating as humanly possible. The warmth of their hospitality was more than the frosting on the cake, it was the ultimate B & B and miles above anything else we've experienced.

We highly recommend this as an excellent place to spend some R and R.

Room Tip: Every room has such a uniqueness and its own experience, but we loved the "Arbor" room.

I had the opportunity to partake in an extended stay at Talus Rock and I loved every minute of it. The Pederson family made me feel right at home from the start! The house itself was incredible, and I felt so fortunate that they were willing to share it with me. The peace and quiet paired with the warmth and hospitality made this the ideal hideaway. I would go back in a heart beat.

Room Tip: There's not a bad room in the house.

Is all that can be said. The air of peacefulness and rest was everything we needed! In a truly beautiful setting. The warmth and kindness and spirit of true friendless was again...a delight. You will be blessed and energized for life once again.

Room Tip: The Kipling Room had a beautiful view of the pond and fountain...very soothing! Wish we had photo...

My wife Shannon and I had no idea what to expect from this amazing retreat. We loved everything about Talus Rock especially the amazing people (and animals) that call it home. These are truly special people that are doing special things for their communities in the US and abroad. I departed feeling sad that we couldn't stay longer and experience the positive/relaxed/vibrant energy that encompasses everything about Talus Rock. Treat yourself to a getaway and you'll likely leave with a renewed sense of what it means to live a meaningful life. Thank you again to the whole family surrounding Talus Rock.

Room Tip: Any of them are spectacular. One or two have a kitchen, you can stay in the entire down stairs that...

I am a huge fan of Bed and Breakfast locations but Talus Rock blew every hope and expectation I could ever have out of the water!! The entire Pedersen family is so warm, welcoming and friendly. You will feel at home before you ever pull up, and when you park you will stand in awe at the dream that has been created by this family. The grounds are beautiful, the house with constanly amaze you and the energy will boost your spirits. There is so much creativity, love and attention put into every aspect of Talus Rock. We asked them to adopt us into their family, and they did without hesitation! Talus Rock and the Pedersen family have changed the course of our lives!
