We just had our third stay at Santosha and like both times before it was idyllic. The property is beyond description with its combination of gardens and nature and its sweeping views. Our room had everything we could want, and breakfast was as always a gourmet feast. Leslie is a wonderful host. The B&B is a quick drive to boating,...

The Sunrise Room with the modern soaking tub is where I stayed. And I wish I was still there! The bed is the most comfortable bed in the world. And I have stayed in many BnB's.

This was a beautiful bed and breakfast with a spectacular view! The rooms were a nice size and comfortable. Breakfast each morning was well prepared, creative and delicious!

We had the most amazing weekend here! The house is gorgeous and nicely secluded in the woods without being quite in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I've decided the guests we have here are as much about the success at Santosha as we are. Our Fall guests have been such a pleasure. Come see us again when you are looking for great company, quiet and some good food. Happy winter!

Lovely weekend. Room overlooks Delaware River. View changed throughout day. Accommodations are new, sparkling clean, and super comfy. (Spring for upstairs room. It's worth it.) Leslie is very knowledgable about the area and had maps and brochures on hand with good advice about local restaurants. Don't miss Dinghman's Falls!
