Being in the hospitality business for most of my life, my definition of perfection is quite high and unattainable to most venues. In short, it's not easy to cater for a life long Executive Chef from a billion dollar company. So when it came down to the basics of what my fiance and I wished for our big day: "Communication,flexibility,trustworthiness, throughly knowledgeabe and welcoming in every aspect", Jedediah Hawkins Inn spoke my language.Sent on 08/14/2018
From the initial meeting with our wedding planner, Charisse Bourke, who graciously showed off the impeccable grounds, rooms, kitchen, and other dining options, Charisse showed us around Jamesport too. The vineyards, local cafes and gift options like a local chocolatier, to setting plans in motion with a phone call with Proprietor Lia, who set our menu and pricing. Charisse also set a tasting with the Executive Chef at our leisure and made sure that every detail was fussed over and implemented. The food and care were so phenomenal, we booked immediately.
At no time did I ever had to correct or summon someone to fix a problem during our wedding. There were none!
Cocktail hour raw bar stocked with local oysters were beyond a hit. At dinner all were quick to comment positively on the food and service. My new family boasted about their filet mignon (we could've eaten two) the roasted organic chicken and the pan seared king salmon (my personal fave) From local craft beer, to quality spirits, It was all done impeccably and was delivered above and beyond my impossibly high expectations. Charisse was on site all day tending to everything. Our wedding suite boasted the most comfortable bed and linen we've had the pleasure to sleep in. Breakfast the morning after took it up another level. Kudos Chef Stephen Smrcina, GM Colin Keillor, and Lia Polites for making our most special day truly worry free and absolutely delightful.
We were delighted. I've attached pictures that show the glorious grounds and some food from the tasting.

WONDERFUL Experience with Jedidiah Hawkins - Rehersal Dinner - Party
JEdidiah Hawkins did our Welcome Party/Rehearsal Dinner for 85 people. They were awesome to work with! We didn't want a replica of our wedding (which was the next night), We didn't want a sit down dinner, but we didn't want our guests to be hungry. Lia patientlyworked with us to come up with a plan that included lots of passed hors d'oeuvres, followed by 2 stations, and then dessert! The team led by Colin and Grace were flawless in their execution! . The food was plentiful and delicious! So many of our guests asked how we found this wonderful gem, The evening far exceeded our expectations!Sent on 07/15/2019

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.Sent on 02/03/2019
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.

Jedediah Hawkins Inn is a beautiful venue set on 22 acres of gardens and open space. The outdoor ceremony location is such a perfect setting for an intimate wedding and the barn is amazing. The food at Jedediah is impeccable and the staff are helpful, organized and friendly. I would highly recommend Jedediah Hawkins Inn to anyone looking to find a unique venue on the North Fork.
I cannot say enough good things about Jedediah Hawkins Inn! We go to a lot of venues- a different one basically every week. There's was hands down our favorite EVER. Everything is so lovely, unique, and special- but most importantly, the staff is insanely attentive and the wedding day went off without a hitch. It was also the first time as vendors that we've been treated like actual people. It was wonderful. They were so supportive not only of the bride & groom, but of their vendors (us!) too. That is just the icing on the cake of what is a stunning place to get married. If I was doing my wedding over again, I would do it here.
Simply one of the BEST hidden secrets on the east end of Long Island. Unique, charming and nestled on the most luscious property. Not only is the food and staff top notch, the location includes weeping willows, a secluded pond, barn, gorgeous sleeping quarters and a picturesque estate. The photographic opportunities are endless. One of my very favorite spots for photographing wedding preparation and intimate weddings. It's worth the trip to visit, even if just for dinner. A + 5 *
