Our family rented all the rooms (ages teens to 70s) and enjoyed the openness of the house, but we all had places to retreat if necessary. The decor was clean and rustic with many things to discover along the way that were fun for our family to participate in together. We walked the labyrinth outside and utilized the singing bowl inside. We watched and listened to the animals in the pond on the property and enjoyed the clouds at eye level as they circled around us above the river in the morning. Lots of great outdoor space on the decks as well as trails just a short trip away at the bottom of the mountain.
Our hosts provided the perfect mix of being there when needed/invisible when we didn't need them. Leslie's yoga session for the family was wonderful. Ingredients in the food were local when possible and the dishes they made with them were delicious.
We have already recommended Santosa on the Ridge to friends.
Loved the house dog, Lucy. She was very polite.
