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 more beautiful and inviting in person! It is so thoughtfully decorated and very well-maintained! True to its name, Santosha is truly a place of satisfaction and contentment. Every element of the home and its surroundings radiates peace and harmony. Every Santosha tradition and care from the hosts delights and inspires. We very much enjoyed our restful stay, delicious healthy breakfasts and rejuvenating atmosphere of Santosha. We will definitely recommend it to friends and hope to be back again soon!

We had 4 couples book all 4 rooms for a weekend, but unfortunately 1 couple had to drop out at the last minute. Regardless, we had a fantastic weekend getaway, allowing us all to get some great skiing in and to really recharge our batteries. Leslie is the perfect host and a great cook too! He always felt welcomed and respected, and couldn't think of staying anywhere else when we are up in the Poconos. We will continue to recommend Santosha to our friends and family, and we look forward to our next visit. --Nick and Amy

We had a wedding in shawnee and were looking for someplace to stay rather than an impersonal hotel. Santosha on the Ridge was a real find! The setting was lovely, the rooms each had their own personality and Leslie and Amy were personable and welcoming. We felt like we had known them forever . The breakfasts were excellent and made from fresh ingredients; many from the garden on site. The living room had a wonderful fireplace and excellent chairs to curl up on and enjoy a book while the fire burned. The location was easy for access to the Water Gap area, trails, waterfalls and more. We will definitely return and stay a bit longer the next time.

I have been to five star hotels all over the world, even the mandarin chain, but none of them has better service, accommodations or food better than this precious gem. Every corner of the home is charming. When I arrived I was tired and cranky, but was greeted by warm smiles from Amy, then Barbara, then Leslie then Gene. You cant help but feel happiness and contentment here. The bed was devine, the bedroom cheery, immaculate, serene and the smell of breakfast wafting up the stairs put me in a true quandary of bed v. breakfast...breakfast won, and won and won. The hosts were helpful and really balance being there with not being there, really the perfect balance. There are many corners to sit and chilax in so each set of guests need not tumble over each other. The grounds and gardens are inviting. I worked on the veranda overlooking the trees and the turning foliage. I cannot believe such serenity is so close to New York, I'm already plotting my return. Enjoy. L

This is my wife and my's third visit to this wonderful B and B. We crave it so we have to go at least once a year. This was our first year in the sunrise room, a truly elegant and tranquil place to rest and relax. The breakfasts were top notch as usual and Leslie and Amy are a joy to spend a weekend with. Already looking forward to next year's visit! :)
