This was our first ever B&B experience and it has ruined us for life! The room was fantastic and the breakfast and hospitality were even better. The views from the deck must be seen to truly experience the beauty of where this B&B is located. I could not recommend a place higher!

My husband and I stayed with Leslie and Gene at Santosha On The Ridge last month. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and how happy were we to have stayed with such wonderful and welcoming people. From the moment you drive down to the property you know you have entered a place of tranquility. You are surrounded by manicured gardens... More

Quiet and secluded with a nice view of the valley. Hosts were attentive and accommodating, and the breakfasts were large and tasty. Room (Woodland Vale) was well appointed and of a good size. We would stay here again on future visits.

My husband and I visited Santosha on the Ridge this past weekend, as we traveled to attend a wedding in Shawnee. We were there with two other couples. From the moment we arrived and saw the view from the deck, we were at peace! We'd found an oasis to replenish our own piece of mind, while being conveniently located to... More

Thank you for such an extensive review. It was our pleasure to meet all of you and have you. I really enjoyed my insurance lesson from Joe. We alway come away knowing something new when guests leave. You found the deck and settled right into that magic view, keeping the hummingbirds moving. The fact that you were able to find... More

Surely finding Santosha on the Ridge was a divine blessing. We could not have asked for a more perfect place to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. It is truly a special place in a breath taking relaxing setting. Every breakfast was amazing, Leslie's recommendations made our activities effortless. We look forward to many return anniversary trips. Mr. and Mrs. Rossi

Thank you for your comments. We so enjoyed meeting you both. I am grateful that Santosha was just the perfect place for you to relax after a few very busy weeks. My favorite part of your visit though was the connections you found with the other guests at the table. It doesn't always happen and it is what makes the... More

We just had our third stay at Santosha and like both times before it was idyllic. The property is beyond description with its combination of gardens and nature and its sweeping views. Our room had everything we could want, and breakfast was as always a gourmet feast. Leslie is a wonderful host. The B&B is a quick drive to boating,... More

The Sunrise Room with the modern soaking tub is where I stayed. And I wish I was still there! The bed is the most comfortable bed in the world. And I have stayed in many BnB's.

Felt like home away from home. I barely wanted to leave the property. Very clean, Leslie and Gene are very accommodating, friendly.. Barbara is a sweetheart... some of the best breakfasts I ever had!
