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 hostess. Example 1: I cut myself . I grabbed the first towel I saw to stop the bleeding. She charged me $30 for one towel, claiming that blood stains ruined her property.

Example 2: Sylvia has all these insane rules regarding locking the front door. She scolds her guests if the door is left opened.

Example 3: sylvia does not let her guests keep luggage for the day inside upon a check out.

She also thinks that her company is absolutely necessary at breakfast. She sits with you and feeds you not only bad spoiled tomatoes but also her fairy tales of her child hood. If you ask me, I can live without them.

Her garden is roomy but the insects bite you to death. Do not sit out after dark.

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.
