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 were first rate! Treat yourself and take a visit.

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 sunlight as our blanket. I cannot remember a more wonderful nap. We took a tour of several wineries, picked fresh lavender, visited a farm stand for fresh tomatoes, had gelato in the quaint village. dinner was truly an experience the Northfork Table and Inn cannot be missed. This is a Michelin Star worthy meal. The food was delicious and the dessert was incredible.
Back at the spa we had the couples package which Sylvia recommended. The chocolate body wrap, the facials, and massage were incredible. We left the spa area of the cottage feeling like spaghetti. Stress had taken it's toll on my body and face. When we walked out another couple, sitting in the parlor remarked at how my entire face had changed. I apparently looked years younger! Always a bonus.
All and all It was a Quintessential experience.

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, who made our stay such a pleasure. Just sitting around the breakfast table listening to her stories about celebrities that stayed there and what "normal" things they did (Brad Pitt and Harrison Ford arguing over who was going to clear the table), her visiting Michael Jackson and Miles Davis while she worked in corporate America, and her stories of overly-spiced foods in the Caribbean, Europe and Africa we such a treat.

In short, if you want to get away for a couple of days but still fee like you're at home, this is the perfect place to stay.

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 much at home. And since our stay here were our last 2 days in Atlanta, after having lived here for 3 years, that meant a lot.

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 greeted by Sylvia, the inn-keeper. She sits us down in the living room and begins the check in process. It takes a bit long since she is back and forth around the house at the same time. Not a big deal considering there is a nice tea layout on the table in front of us (which we didnt try, but it did look pretty good). There were a few details that she mixed up and kept blaming "them" for not paying attention, although, I didnt see "anyone else". Either way, we finally figured out the proper times and restaraunts for our reservations and she called and fixed everything. There were also supposed to be some gifts in the room for my wife since we were celebrating her birthday and only some of them were there. The others were still not delivered, again, because "they" were running late. We went up to the room which was very nice, spacious and clean. The tub was an old school footed model which my wife thought was very charming. The decor fit the rest of the house and was also quite charming and comfortable. Bring your own slippers as the ones provided were quite used. Considering you can buy a pair for $2 at old navy, she should replace them more often. We stayed in the Kingston room, and although it faced the front of the house and Main Road, it was very quiet and we slept like babies. The breakfast was EXCELLENT. The biscuits, apple bread, and coffee cake were all EXTREMELY good! The eggs and home made hash was delish and the fresh fruit salad was also very, very good. She serves Blue Mountain Jamaican coffee, which she reminds you as often as possible, so if you dont like your coffee strong, you'd better opt for the tea. After breakfast we took a stroll around the grounds and found it to be cute and pretty well maintained, however, there were several sitting areas that needed new furniture as they were very dirty and I would not consider using them even with a throw on top. There was a hammock that should have been removed and replaced but it was still hanging there, very sorry looking. Now, for the "SPA". The spa was simply two rooms in the house. Sylvia, did the facials, and she brought in outside masseuses to handle the massages. Apparently she uses more than one, because one lady had a massage and said it was the best she'd ever had, however, my wife's was not. She said the masseuse was creepy and his skills were sub par. She couldnt wait for it to be over. So in summary: Great B&B, but skip the Spa Services.
