Santosha on the Ridge Bed and Breakfast Sanctuary
Reviewed May 26, 2012

A beautiful spot in a beautiful part of the US!!! I was hesitant about a bed and breakfast for my marathon weekend. Every B&B that I've ever spent the night in was at best a horror movie.. Old furnishings in a old house with lots of old things around and people with strict rules. Not at ll what I needed before or after running a marathon!! Santosha could not be more opposite from my past experiences!! New, airy house overlooking the Appalachian trail. Accommodating home owner and assistant( they are both great but very different personalities). Breakfast was delicious everyday, the house was comfortable, and the views and ambiance was fantastic!! Couldn't recommend santosha more.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool. A hot tub sits on one of decks. Quiet, views, delicious healthy food in a...

My husband and I recently made a last minute trip to Santosha from NYC. The weather was not on our side, but Santosha made up for it. We do quite bit of b & b-ing, and this is one of the most peaceful and relaxing places we've ever stayed. Amy was so gracious and wow, does that gal know how to cook a breakfast! If you're considering this area as a get-away, look no further than the beautiful house on the mountain. We look forward to a return trip.

My husband and I recently stayed at Santosha and it was a little peace of heaven. Leslie and Amy were lovely and made a great breakfast each morning. The property surrounding the bed and breakfast was beautiful. They made it feel like home and were very resourceful when helping us find things to do around the area. We would definitely go back again.

We had a wonderful time at Santosha. This wonderful hideaway could not have been nicer. Leslie made us feel right at home and could not have been more helpful or nicer. We enjoyed the lovely well appointed rooms and wonderful breakfasts, I do not want to forget to mention the lovely baked goods...I normally do not indulge in sweets but I could not resist! I would highly recommend this spot in the Poconos if you need to get away... Cath

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...
