My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Santosha on the Ridge and it was beautiful. Tucked away in Shawnee, it had the most magnificent backyard view, scrumptious breakfast, cozy rooms and common areas. Leslie was warm and friendly (and she made the yummy breakfasts too!) We actually got some of her recipes to use once we returned...

It is a very quiet and peaceful place to stay. I always want to live on the mountain. This experience made my dream came true. This place is surrounded by nature with excellent food and hot tub. Hence, if you like nature and peace, you should definitely go there. Moreover, don’t forget to bring the swimming suits with you for...

Words cannot describe how peaceful our stay at Santosha was. Leslie is an absolutely phenomenal host! The rooms are all decorated to promote peace and serenity. My girlfriend and I stayed in the Riverview room, which was wonderful. It is not the largest room available, but it is very comfortable. The bed was great, as well! DO NOT miss the...

We shudder to think of the places we almost booked while planning our first trip to the Delaware Water Gap. It would have been such a loss to have missed the charm and delight of Santosha on the Ridge. There is loving attention to detail in the architecture, gardens, decor, artwork and amazing breakfasts. Leslie was always at the ready...

My husband and I found ourselves at Santosha on the Ridge for a quick weekend getaway. We've been up to the Shawnee area before but have never stayed at a B&B in the area. Santosha owner, Leslie, knows how to operate a B&B the right way. She was very accommodating to our slightly late check-in time, keeps a very clean...

Thank you for your kind words. Just for the record....though the scones have some butter, the flours are organic whole wheat spelt, almond flour, and ground flax with maple syrup and chocolate chips...didn't I read somewhere that a little chocolate was good for just about everything? It is my wish for you to feel like my guest and leave with...

My college and I stayed there as we had business near by. What an amazing B&B! The views are breath-taking! Leslie the owner is a gem and her breakfasts are DELICIOUS! She accommodated our early morning work schedules and made sure coffee was ready and we were well fed before we headed out for the day.... Her scones are to...

My husband and I have just returned from the most amazing peaceful and restorative stay at Santosha on the Ridge. It was a brief week-end get-away that felt like a full-blown vacation - all thanks to the tranquil warm and cozy atmosphere at Santosha. My first impression was that the pictures didn't do this place justice - it is even...

My husband and I relaxed at this fantastic B&B for a winter get away. The food was outstanding and fresh, our room was warm with comfort from the moment we walked in. I recommend this B&B highly, plan to go back next year to ski the weekend away again :)
