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 have been going to Jedediah Hawkins for a few years for special occasions, the latest being a pre-Valentine's dinner last Friday. The atmosphere of dining in an old sea captain's home speaks of elegance from a by gone era.
The food and selection is of top quality with all the items from the menu prepared with great care and wonderful flavor. The service is impeccable with professional waitstaff who attend to our every need. In the summer we try to dine outdoors on the patio surrounded by sumptuous gardens and wildlife. The grounds are stunning in their beauty and scope and give diners the sense that they are on a country estate. The experience is well worth the price of a dinner for two, that being said, their prices are not exorbitant and well worth the investment. We couldn't recommend it more.
We truly could not have asked for a better wedding than what we had at Jedediah Hawkins Inn. Lia, Colin, and the entire staff were professional, accommodating, and responsive from start to finish. The building is beautiful, the services are exquisite, and the food is to die for; but it was the personal care and attention that the Jedediah Hawkins Inn staff put into their work that made our day so memorable.
We sincerely thank Jedediah Hawkins Inn for their hard work and kind care. We received so many compliments all throughout the night and our guests were raving about the venue and atmosphere. Many claimed our wedding to be their favorite wedding ever. It was an amazing wedding, and we have the JHI staff to thank for that.
We recommend JHI to anyone looking for a romantic, relaxing, and magical venue for their event.

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.
