Why Stay At Jedediah Hawkins Inn
The historic Victorian-era inn is set on 22 lush acres and surrounded by Long Island's wine country, which makes it the perfect setting to wipe away everyday weariness.
Built in 1862 by namesake Jedediah Hawkins himself, the charming Italianate-style inn was recently restored to its former splendor. Original interior features include exposed brick walls, classic plaster moldings, and several fireplaces. With just five guest rooms, and the expansive Belvedere Suite taking up the top floor, there is an intimate feel about this country retreat. Guest rooms were independently designed and individually appointed; one with suede walls, another showcasing the original wood floor. Guests have access to an in-house gym and personal massage therapists in the privacy of their room. Sit down for breakfast on the glassed-in patio; break for lunch in the brightly lit Solarium or feast on unpretentious farm-to-table fare by the dining room's fireplace. The inn's Speakeasy is the place to conclude your night—catch some live music along with the local "friendly ghost," said to hang out in the room.
Need to work off some calories? Borrow one of the inn's bikes and go exploring around the area on two wheels.
Look out for exhibitions held by the inn's owners at the property's barn-turned-art-gallery.
Arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) which is about 76 miles from the inn. Anticipate about 90 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.400 South Jamesport Avenue, Jamesport,

Why We Love Jamesport
Only about 90 miles from New York City, the Long Island North Fork's quaint towns are less crowded than the nearby glamorous Hamptons. Nestled alongside Peconic Bay and the Long Island Sound, bay beaches, nature trails and a series of award-winning wineries are all within easy reach.
739 Main Road, Route 25, Aquebogue.
Where to Drink: Head a few miles east to North Fork Table & Inn where GM Mike Mraz doubles as head mixologist. He has developed a knack for whipping up memorable cocktails based on a credo of 'four ingredients or less'. Try the Lew Brown made with Cherry Heering Liqueur. Cocktails for two $20.
57225 Main Rd, Southold.
Best Day Trip: Take advantage of the complimentary wine tasting vouchers provided by selected vineyards to guests of the inn. The Long Island wine region has recently become lauded for its first-rate Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay varietals.
Outdoor Excursion: Several miles of picturesque hiking trails or snowshoeing and cross-country skiing paths during winter run through Caleb Smith State Park, located in the heart of Smithtown. Keep your eyes open for red fox, flying squirrels and deer.
