On Long Island’s North Fork, Jedediah Hawkins Inn is housed in a landmark 1863 Italianate mansion constructed by the namesake Mr. Hawkins. Surrounded by wide open farmland and the property’s own organic gardens, it first opened in 2007 and, and after some missteps in the kitchen, has today perfected the fine-dining-and-comfy-digs formula.
Bed and Bath
Four of the six bedrooms are on the second floor and have views of the grounds or surrounding fields. (There’s also a ground-floor guestroom and the top-floor Belvedere Suite.) Each room is individually designed with a subtle nod to its organic name: springtime yellows in the light-flooded Cider Room, a hardwood sleigh bed and green floral in Sage, brown suede walls in Cocoa, and blush-pink paint and oversize sash windows in the Rose Room. All have gas fireplaces, soft Frette linens and a mountain of pillows, plus lovely Malin + Goetz amenities in the bathrooms.
While rooms are homey and comfortable, it’s the restaurant that attracts most visitors to this quiet corner of the North Fork. The menu is governed by the seasons and whatever is having a good day in the 22-acre gardens; highlights include creamy homemade burrata, tuna tartare with watermelon and pistachio-crusted halibut. Tip: try the steel-barreled Chardonnay from nearby Sherwood House, and don’t forget to leave room for dessert!
How to Get There
There is no doubt but that dinner at Jedediah Hawkins’ fine restaurant is a five star experience. The food is exquisite. The service is impeccable. The venue is extraordinary. All was lovely!
One of the things that impressed me the most is the management and the staff are truly eager to please, while providing an excellent value for the food/experience and not, as all too many restaurants do, trying to squeeze every last nickel out of you. Case in point, rather than selling you a ridiculously overpriced $12 bottle of sparkling water, you are asked if you would like complimentary flat or sparkling water. Carafes are then brought, and refilled, as needed. How very refreshing for a high end restaurant, and how very respectful of the restaurant’s clientele.
Do go. Do enjoy!
We spent 2 nights at the Inn and we are repeat guests. Upgraded to the suite and had dinner there as well. Restaurant is truly delicious. You will not find a better breakfast either!
Everyone is top- notch and the place is gorgeous. It is a peaceful quiet oasis.
Property Manager Colin makes you feel like your part of the family. No request is too big or too small!
Do not miss a chance to stay here if your on the North Fork!!
A beautifully restored 150 year old home has been transformed into an inn and restaurant. Open for dinner during the week and brunch and dinner on weekends, their speak easy basement dining area is also a great place to have a meal. The main dining rooms are beautifully appointed and they have expanded another dining area,
The solarium, which is airy and looks out onto the grounds.
The staff is friendly, professional and efficient. They were very accommodating with our vegetarian and gluten free dietary issues. The yellow gazpacho soup was delicious as was the beet hummus. The burrata, nestled upon a bed of greens, was tasty and the potato gnocchi with fresh sautéed mushrooms was delicious.
The kitchen accommodated my chocolate fix by satisfying my request for
chocolate sauce for the flourless chocolate cake- heaven! Thank you for another delicious meal. Go early if want a quiet intimate experience.
