Guestbook comments from the owner

Southern hospitality with northwest notes. Carrie was quick to respond to my request and messages. Our stay was very short, yet she treated us like royalty with a warm welcome and genuine hospitality. The Quintessa Cottage is perfect for a couple's retreat or a girl friend getaway. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Thank you, Carrie and Tessa!

Gorgeous house and location

We had our team offsite here and it was absolutely perfect for our group. Lots of space and a gorgeous kitchen for our group cooking competition. :) The owners were very accommodating and wonderful to work with for setting up this experience.

Church Retreat

  • 4 of 5
Our church had the pleasure of hosting a women's retreat at the Quintessa. From the planning phases on, we found the owners to be extremely responsive in promptly answering our questions. The estate was very comfortable, quiet, and accommodated a large group nicely.

Flawless!

I am a youth minister, and I brought up a LARGE group of teenagers, college students, and young graduates to stay at the Quintessa and another property nearby. The students and myself had nothing but great things to stay. The owners were cordial, friendly, and very helpful in providing information about Whidbey Island. And, altogether, it was a very reasonable price for such a beautiful house. I couldn't recommend it more to anyone who has a large group, for any occasion!

Beautiful, spacious home, perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Quintessa, and are so thankful to Carrie and Tessa for opening up their home. It was the perfect place for my large family, and was very comfortable for all ages. We had quite a few children, toddlers, babies, and the house was large enough that the older children had places to play in the yard and home, and the babies only kept their parents up at night. There is so much space for eating, talking, catching up and celebrating birthday and weddings. I also really appreciated how quickly Carrie and Tessa responded to my questions, which was incredibly helpful when planning this trip. It is a lovely home, Carrie and Tessa are lovely people to work with, and it helped make my wedding weekend absolutely perfect!

Owner's Response: Dear Rachel,

Thank you for your kind words! Almost nothing else flatters us as much as positive reviews from our guests or referrals from them. In your case, we were just so honored that our place could be a part of your very special wedding weekend. We hold your dad and your family in the highest esteem. We have always been in awe of your family's dedication and compassion to healthcare around the world.

Best of luck with everything you do and best wishes on your future with Scott!

Warmly,
Tessa & Carrie

Grandpa's 70th Birthday and family reunion.

Grandpa's 70th Birthday and family reunion.
  • 5 of 5
5 days with 5 sons and daughters and their spouses, 10 grandkids from 15-1 yo, 1 brother and sister in law and 2 kids ..all from 5 states. Easy access from Seatac airport was a priority. Terrific time. The big yard entertained the 8 little ones, the teenagers and older kids helped with playtime. Beach and winery tours nearby for some. Treated everyone to the boat tour of Deception Pass..a big hit (along with post triip ice cream). Clamming by one couple and kids. We had 2 dinners full service catered and one food-provided so the girls wouldn't have to cook and cleanup (we brought the rest of the food from a huge Costco run before).We barbecued one night. The house is immaculate (and huge) and the grounds and yard are perfect. It was expensive (since grandpa and grandma were paying the bill) but a thrilling once in a lifetime event in a perfect spot with a perfect spacious home and cottage for all. No negatives at all. Carrie and Tessa are terrific hosts, are out of sight but are readily available if needed.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family reunion at The Quintessa on Whidbey Island was wonderful.
From grandchildren to grandparents, everyone enjoyed it.
We did some touring on the island as well as fishing at Deception Pass State Park.
The huge grassy area provided plenty of room for football, badminton, frisbee throwing
while the two year olds played under the trees.
We cooked most of our meals in the spacious kitchen and the weather was nice enough to
barbeque on the deck.
