We agree with all of the positive reviews other travellers have shared. We were there for only one night a few weeks back. This was our first B&B experience and we had concerns about the owner or guests being overly chatty/intrusive. That was not the case. There were also other young couples there during our stay which was another factor...

I don't know if it's a blessing or a sin that more people don't know about Santosha. Our only goal for our two day getaway was to do nothing but be in nature and relax. This place was perfect! Breakfast was amazing and was considerately prepared to our dietary needs, the rooms were impeccably clean and had just the right...

What an absolutely beautiful B&B. The first thing you notice is how impeccably clean everything is, and the quiet. Leslie is an amazing host; Amy a great cook. The breakfasts were delicious, the location ideal. I highly recommend this beautiful place and will definitely make many return trips.

I had the opportunity to stay at Santosha over the recent President's Weekend. We stayed in the Naturescape Room. The king bed and the space were very comfortable, tastefully furnished and roomy. There was a mini kitchen with a refrigerator and the room was nice and private. There was a sliding door that led to a back deck overlooking the...

My husband and I just got back from a 3 night stay at Santosha, and it was amazing in every way!!

This is my third trip to santosha and it never disappoints. My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights in the sunrise room. This is my favorite room as it has large semi circle windows to see all the nature outside, the stars while laying in bed, and awakening to a beautiful sunrise. Leslie and Amy make you feel at...

This was our second time to Santosha. Last time we stayed in the idyllic setting of fall (for one night) and this time, in January (for three nights), with snow on the ground. We imagine the setting is breathtaking in any season, but what makes Santosha exceptional is both the actual place and the people who run it. We felt...

My husband and I decided we wanted to get away from the city so I did some research and stumbled upon Santosha on the Ridge. We visited the B&B for the weekend of August 24th to August 26th and stayed in the Sunrise Room. Great room...great breakfasts...great host....great surrounding area. It was wonderful feeling as if we were a part...

My husband and I were looking for a quiet, restful getaway for the Columbus Day weekend.
