From the moment we walked in the door we knew we picked the right place. Celebrating our honeymoon Sylvia made our stay memorable. She adds to the charm of this historic get-away spot. We ate at some fabulous local restaurants, relaxed and each had a wonderful massage. We're looking forward to returning in the warmer months when her gardens are... More

I stayed in the Brandon Room which was spacious and comfortable. The host, Sylvia, was the right balance of attentive and withdrawn (she gives you your space). I had two spa services (facial and massage) which were professionally performed and reasonably priced. Breakfast was delicious, but served (I thought) a little late, @ 9:45 a.m. I'd go back in a...

I stayed at Quintessentials during the North Fork's House and Garden Tour. Let me tell you, Sylvia has one of the most magnificent gardens that I have ever seen. There is a lovely outdoor sitting space with a cooling fan where I enjoyed brownies and lemonade. The house was spotless and fabulous. We had her famed corn beef hash in... More

My friend and I brought our daughters to celebrate their 21st birthdays. Quintessentials was perfect: low key and very relaxing. Right from the start we felt welcome. The bedrooms were clean and decorated in soothing color. Silvia made a hard-to-get reservation for Friday night at a terrific local restaurant, The Frisky Oyster, Breakfast on the patio Saturday morning was delicious... More

Please consider my suggestions before booking rooms here. 1) far from the beach- a car is a must! 2) this place is downright spooky. I know what one might think that I am very hard to please but no it is not it. The owner, Sylvia, who seems sweeter than honey on the phone is a very bad, cold, incompassionable... More

This was an excellent place to stay. Quiet, relaxing and very helpful. One feature that I really liked was that they had a little convenience store right next door where one could get papers, etc. The backyard was very big and there were gazebos, pagodas with rocking chairs, a nice big hammock. This was a real delight and the breakfasts... More

The home is quaint, quiet and very well appointed. Sylvia was the ultimate hostess providing the most sumptuous breakfasts and teas throughout the day. the grounds were charming reminiscent of Hodges "The Secret Garden'. While walking the grounds my husband and I happened upon a hammock and drifted off to sleep cradled by the lilting sway using the afternoon dappled... More

Quintessentials was recommended to us by a friend who visited there for a bachelorette party. The inn itself was gorgeous and comfortable...an old-style home with all modern amenities. The breakfasts were outstanding. The suggestions for restaurants and wineries by the innkeeper were spot on. The massage was also top-notch. But, regardless of the above, it was Sylvia, the innkeeper herself,... More

This is the perfect place in the lovely Inman Park neighbourhood for travelers who are ok with vsiting Victorian houses but wouldn't want to live in one. Urban Oasis is a breath of fresh air. Judy is a perfect host, so friendly and with lots of helpful tips and advice. She shares her home with such ease, we felt very... More

So, let me start with this: This was my first time at a B&B, so remember that when reading this review. Ok, now, we drive up and the house is very cute and quaint. There is a circular driveway with several parking spots for all the guests. Perfect. We walk up to the house and ring the bell and are... More
