The Perfect B&B Experience

4.8 on February 17, 2014

I was looking for a last-minute spa retreat for me and my girlfriend for Valentine's getaway. With all big hotels/resorts being overbooked months in advance, I had to pick something of a smaller scale and, boy, am I glad I ran into Quintessentials. This is the perfect B&B experience for me. - A lovely, well-traveled, well-educated, well-prepared host, who is also an amazing cook, a great conversationalist, and an overall great person. - A low-key place with a plantation-style old-school decorations, yet luxurious and pampering with a hot tub in our bathroom, gourmet breakfast/brunch, cookies/tea in the afternoon and spa treatments - Great location that is sufficiently far from the city, so that you feel like you are having a proper vacation and you can unplug entirely, yet only a couple hours drive away from Manhattan. Relatively close to wineries, dining options, the ocean and Orient beach, great farms where you can pick up local produce (more relevant in summer months), etc. The most important thing was that Sylvia made us feel right at home and closer to her native Jamaican vibe - everything was easy, natural, and relaxed. She and her assistant make amazing brunch-style meals in the morning and everyone staying at the B&B gathers around a big table like a family, sparking conversations about your day around town, your interests, your life, etc. And somehow, you don't feel awkward about sharing intimate moments and personal stories with people you just met. That's how good Sylvia is at what she does - she makes you feel right at ease. After staying at her B&B for two nights, we felt like we've known her for ages. We hugged each other and promised to come back again... Highly recommended!

Great Time for All!

OMG! I had an amazing time. Even though the weather was not the greatest. Quintessentials made me feel special and gave me a home away from home. Loved it.

Healthy Nirvana 2

Part 2 (due to space) My wife & I are not novices when it comes to Spas, having enjoyed Canyon Ranch, The Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove, Miami, FL; Berkeley Springs, WV; The Spa at Glenmoor in [yes] Canton, OH; Seven Springs Resort & Spa in PA; etc.  While most have had wonderfully unique aspects, only Quintessentials has Ms. Sylvia Daley & Quintessentials! This unique aspect makes a Spa Day or session at Quintessentials the very best!!!!! While I have not stayed at the B&B, due to physical limitations, my Wife, Sister-In-Law, & 18 year old Niece have & wanted to return for R&R+++  Since I came along, this trip, & could not stay there, we stayed across the street at the lovely Arbor View House & were the guests of the dynamic duo of Wilfred and Veda Joseph - which is not, by any means, a second rate consolation prize, yet very different. As James Brown would say as the happier, healthier, me - since Quintessentials, "I feeeel  Gooood!" Well, actually, GREAT!!!!! The health benefits continue! Book it! Go there! Do it! Enjoy it! And please, send my warmest greetings & appreciation!
