We spent 4 nights at Santosha and wish we could have stayed 4 more. Beautiful home and even more spectacular view off the back porch. Leslie's breakfast skills are off the charts. Highly recommend...great hiking spots very close and of all varieties.

We stayed in the Naturescape room and thoroughly loved it. This room has a private balcony and is set away from the other rooms so we never heard the other guests. The views from both our balcony and the communal back deck were spectacular. Whether lying in the hammock looking up at the trees, swaying on the porch swing, or...

This was our first ever B&B experience and it has ruined us for life! The room was fantastic and the breakfast and hospitality were even better. The views from the deck must be seen to truly experience the beauty of where this B&B is located. I could not recommend a place higher!

Quiet and secluded with a nice view of the valley. Hosts were attentive and accommodating, and the breakfasts were large and tasty. Room (Woodland Vale) was well appointed and of a good size. We would stay here again on future visits.

My husband and I visited Santosha on the Ridge this past weekend, as we traveled to attend a wedding in Shawnee. We were there with two other couples.

Surely finding Santosha on the Ridge was a divine blessing. We could not have asked for a more perfect place to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. It is truly a special place in a breath taking relaxing setting. Every breakfast was amazing, Leslie's recommendations made our activities effortless. We look forward to many return anniversary trips. Mr. and Mrs. Rossi
