“OUTSTANDING SERVICE, ACCOMMODATIONS AND LOCATION”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

This beautiful property is located in a small town near great hiking trails and resturaunts. We equally enjoyed/appreciated relaxing on the deck amongst peaceful surroundings (with the house dog Lucy - when she was not socializing with her neighbors). Thanks to Lisa & Kevin, we opted to join them in eating a "vegan" breakfast each morning - delicious!! Thanks again to Leslie & Lisa who work very hard and have a lot of positive energy.

Room Tip: The Naturescape room was quaint, roomy, comfortable and quiet. Although we loved the Naturescape roo...

Our visit to Santosha was our first Bed and Breakfast experience and it definitely will not be our last!! From the time we walked thru the front door we knew that Santosha was the perfect decision. The B&B is a beautiful home, on spacious grounds with a fantastic view. There are only 4 rooms at Santosha which really helps to enhance the feeling of being pampered. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the sunrise room and it was a joy waking up to the view. Breakfast was delicious and healthy. Leslie and Amy are great hosts with excellent suggestions on things to do and see. Santosha is a 8 hour drive for us, but it was worth it and we will be back.

Room Tip: Sunrise room is spacious with a great view. If you are looking for ultimate privacy choose the Natur...

Beautiful location overlooking the Delaware. Great decks, roaring fire from a stone fireplace. Delicious breakfasts, down comforters with cotton duvet, comfortable firm bed.

Room Tip: Although the woodland room was very nice, I was taking a nap and was woken up by the jacuzzi in the...

This is a beautiful place to stay. We stayed in the Naturescape Room a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I'll note that there were three bugs in the room, but this seemed due to the early Spring weather and nothing to do with the place, which is absolutely spotless and pristine. I liked the plentiful supply of tea in the room and the comfy sofa. I read books on the oversize chair and was really relaxed. The breakfasts are really good. Good coffee. The owners seems a tad bit uptight about starting breakfast exactly at 9am. For what it's worth, I picked up on feelings of stress about breakfast. We got down there a 8:58 and sat in the living room, one said, "don't sit down. breakfast!" Everyone eats together, though I bet you could ask to eat on your own if you wanted. Nice place. Big. Spacious. Clean. Friendly. Great hikes nearby and I highly recommend you go to Antelao for dinner (make a reservation!)

Santosha on the Ridge Bed and Breakfast provides that great get-a-way with an outstanding calm and soothing environment that many city goers, like myself, can not seem to find in our urban surroundings. The scenery caputures the eyes, while the indoor setting causes your muscles to instantly relax. Overall, we had a great time thanks to Amy and Leslie.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, their website represents them up and down.

We loved our stay at Santosha. We stayed in the naturescape room which I would recommend highly- it was absolutely huge and very comfortable. The bed was so soft and cuddly. We were able to obtain a ski package from the owners at Shawnee mountain, which was about 5 minutes away. It was a great central location with lots of choices for nearby restaurants, beautiful views, and overall a great trip only 1.5 hours from NYC.

There was a hot tub outside which was beautiful and we enjoyed. We also loved the breakfast that included freshly baked muffins, scones, a frittata, baked french toast with nuts and berries, it was an absolute dream. I can't wait to stay again- and will definitely do so in the future.

Room Tip: loved the naturescape room- it was so perfect.
