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
Enjoyed a fabulous meal with two friends. Food was delicious. Service was friendly and swift, even thought they were busy. Building is fascinating, with lots of fascinating history. Did not stay the night.
Had dinner on a Saturday night and I plan to avoid weekends in the future because the kitchen was very slow due to the restaurant being full. My husband and I shared a small plate of pork belly steam buns as an appetizer. The pork was crispy and delicious but a bit salty, and I am a big user of salt. The main course, Crispy Duck was perfect. The dessert profiteroles were disappointing. Service was good. Staff throughout were very welcoming.
My husband and I came here with friends who live in the area. We hadn’t been there in a while and as it was our anniversary, we wanted to go somewhere special.
As always, it did not disappoint. Service was exceptional. Drinks were very good. We both enjoyed our delicious salad and I had salmon with fennel, so tasty. My husband had scallops , which he loved. They gave us a complimentary champagne toast, which was very nice. Overall, always an enjoyable dining event!
