Meticulous, Immaculate, charming place to chilax. What I did: slept late in the perfect cozy bed. Was in a great dilemma getting out of bed, but who could really resist the smell of freshly made breakfast with freshly baked pastries and coffee wafting up to the room. Then i hit the hot tub and dressed. Then took a brisk walk...

We stayed here to attend a wedding at the Shawnee Inn which was about 5 minutes from this B&B. We love staying in B&B's . It is a great way to make friends and learn more about the area. The experience at Santosha was made special by the people who own and those who work at the Inn. You immediately...

My husband and I just needed a quick getaway to recharge and Santosha ended up being perfect. We stayed in the Sunrise room and we were very happy wtih the size of the room and bathroom. The whole house has a very zen vibe, but is not minimalist or stark feeling by any means...it was VERY well-appointed with high-end, comfy...

My wife and I have three kids under seven and have only been away from them once or twice and for very short periods of time. After looking at a host of options for a night away for our anniversary, we chose Santosha. Now granted, we had some luck here -- the weather was breath-taking late-summer sun, and Leslie was...

Trust all the stellar reviews. It is truly a peaceful and perfect getaway. We wanted to escape to celebrate our anniversary and we decided on Santosha. It met every expectation and has helped me walk in to the busy-ness of September with a healthier soul.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. So relaxing with comfortable beds, great views and the breakfast is amazing. We have been to Santosha 4 times now and you will not be disappointed! The innkeeper is super sweet and they are accommodating to us vegetarians:)

We stayed only one night, and hope to go back for 4 or 5 nights next time we're in the area. We happened to arrive during a tremendous downpour, which made getting up the road a bit unnerving, but the stay was otherwise great. Incredible upstairs room with great views, which we really appreciated when the thunder and lightning came...

I searched around a while before stumbling across Santosha, and when I read the reviews I figured, there's probably a reason it pretty much only has 5-star ratings. Well, it's because this is one of the nicest places you'll ever stay. I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend somewhere in the Poconos where you could see a beautiful sunset...

This was the perfect mid way weekend getaway location for my girlfriend and I; she lives in NY and I in PA so based on the previous reviews, we decided to give Santosha a chance....indeed we were not disappointed! The Inn was so perfectly decorated; the setting serene and peaceful; the room was warm and tasteful and our hostess Amy,...

Took my girlfriend here for a quick getaway. We wanted a few days of relaxation and nature. The place was perfect. The hosts were ultra welcoming and uber helpful in explaining what restaurants, parks, and attractions are in the area. The breakfast was delicious. The cookies were superb. The soap was awesome, too.
