As a birthday surprise, my husband booked a short stay at Quintessentials for us. As neither one of us had ever stayed at a B&B before, we were a little uncertain as to what to expect.
When we arrived Sylvia prepared an afternoon tea and baked a birthday cake (complete with a candle and the infamous happy birthday song)
The house had the feel of a warm, welcoming HOME and Sylvia's charm and hospitality made us feel even more at home.
Our room (the Kingston Room) was bright, cheery and immaculately clean!
When we sat down for breakfast the following morning we were treated to a wonderful fresh fruit salad followed by an array of homemade warm and delicious muffins, biscuits, and breads (complete with local jam). Our next "course" was a fabulous frittata!
Our stay was wonderful! Sylvia was amazing! The house was spectacular and loaded with old world charm and character! Not only are we planning on returning this summer, we have recommended Quintessentials to all of our friends and family!
