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
My husband grew up around the corner and spend the summers out here and told me this place was next to an old potato farm and he would pick potatoes as a kid. Amazing feel, personnel and food. Stayed over and it was heaven especially the breakfast - minimum nights of 2 but if you ask for one in the off season they may say yes - a must try.
Wonderful food, beautiful atmosphere, magical evening..even though it was in the evening when we were there, you could see how beautiful the grounds where. Being it was our first time visiting North Fork it made it more all that special..
Jedediah Hawkins is wonderful this is not my first visit. Over the years they continue to be a first class Inn in location, hospitality, charm, elegance and attentive service; in addition, to the scenery which is astounding; the rooms are cozy comfortable and clean. The staff is fabulous flexible and accommodating while courteous. Super satisfied with my stay and highly recommended.
Went to the early seating for dinner for New Year’s Eve. This place is absolutely beautiful. If it wasn’t for the rain I would’ve loved to have walked around the grounds before dinner. Dinner was absolutely fabulous and the service was impeccable. The lamb was so good and cooked perfectly. My husband loved his filet mignon as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and I am planning on returning once the weather is nicer.
We spent a lovely weekend in the Cocoa room. The room and hotel was charming, cozy and clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was terrific with a gas fireplace, a nice bathroom and a comfortable bed. The included 3 course breakfast in the solarium was terrific. This was a perfect spot to stay for a weekend of rest and relaxation in the heart of Long Island wine country. Would definitely recommend this place.
