It took us 15 years to save for the groundbreaking money, 8 years to purchase and aggregate the 5 parcels of land to control the view corridor, 4 years to design the Retreat and clear the land, and 388 days (working 7  days a week to build it) before we finally moved in to the 8,300 square foot home in February of 2008.

While we always planned to share Talus Rock, it wasn’t our vision to make the house an officially permitted B&B (thus the retrofitted fire sprinkler system to meet commercial code compliance). However, doing so allows us to continue to support our missions and family, and as an added benefit, we get to meet YOU–our fabulous guests! We hope that you will visit us someday and share in our delight. After all, two quotes come to mind:

“For pleasure has no relish unless we share it.”
Virginia Woolf, The Common Reader 


“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.”
W. Clement Stone
