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
We spent a fabulous week at this truly unique place during the summer. The staff warmly welcomed our party and quickly made us feel at home in the beautifully and individually furnished bedrooms which had everything we needed and more! Breakfast was a feast in itself and the beautiful terrace and garden provided a happy and relaxing setting for drinks and dinner.
What especially stood out for us was the genuinely wonderful service, both while staying at the hotel and afterwards. My daughter discovered she had left her necklace behind on our return to London. We contacted the the owner, Lia, who soon reassured us that the necklace had been found. She arranged for the sister of her manager, Jim, to bring it over to the UK for us on her return to London.
We can’t recommend Jedidiah Hawkins Inn highly enough. Thank you again to all of the fabulous team.
We stayed this past weekend at the Jedidiah Hawkins Inn. The Inn is beautiful, and they upgraded our room because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The accommodations are lovely and the Inn is like something out of the fairytale. Breakfast is included during the stay and it was excellent. Their last chef bakes fresh pastries each morning that are absolutely perfect. Breakfast comes in 3 courses, not to be missed. We also had dinner there one night and it was excellent. They use locally sourced ingredients and cook them to
perfection. The cocktails are inventive and delicious. I can not recommend this Inn highly enough. The location is perfect for visiting the wineries. They also created a weekend intinerary for us with restaurants, wineries, farms and country stores. The Jedidiah Hawkins Inn is a lovely escape for a relaxing weekend, special occasion or even a wedding/special event!
Never received a bad meal here. My wife and I always enjoy the atmosphere and the service. Im sure the hotel accommodations are as good as the meal and the service.
So if you visit the east end you just have to try Jedediah Hawkins Inn and Restaurant.
Enjoyable venue with good food and service. Met two friends for a relaxing comfortable dinner. We were served quickly and attended to throughout the meal. The food came out at the same time and was at the perfect temperature. Dessert was also very good. Definitely worth a revisit.
My wife and I had an early dinner here on a day trip out east to the wineries and beach. We had the duck wings appetizer and the cioppino. My wife, who is the real critic in the family (food and otherwise), thought the wings were fantastic, and I agree. She thought the cioppino was small, but we both agreed that the mussels were the biggest we had ever seen, and very tasty (and we often eat mussels). The fish was a little sparse, as were the shrimps. I thought the broth was very good, my wife wasn't sure it was so good but meanwhile we both dipped the bread in it and emptied the bowl. Our two servers were both very good. We recommend sitting outside if the weather permits. The grounds at this restaurant, which is also an inn, are very pretty. My wife always takes a few photos when we come here.
