Jedediah Hawkins Inn gave us the wedding of our dreams! The beautifully scenic inn and delicious food still have our guests raving! Once we saw the place, our venue search had ended. It was everything we ever wanted for our classy, simply elegant wedding. Colin and the staff were amazingly helpful and we had the best day of our lives!

I recently had my Bridal Shower here in the Solarium. It was absolutely beautiful. This venue is truly one of a kind! The grounds are beautiful and the food is fantastic. All my guests were so impressed, they are still talking about it and making plans to return. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I can’t thank them enough for making my day so very special!

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.
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.

Jedediah Hawkins was a unique and beautiful venue! Our families have not stopped talking about how beautiful the barn and grounds were! The staff was spectacular and it was the perfect day!

Lia helped plan all our details without any problems at all. My guests are still RAVING ABOUT THE FOOD!. the kitchen preformed miracles. all the food came out at the same time and it was hot and delicious. my compliments and thanks to the entire staff at Jedediah.

Jedediah Hawkins Inn has the most incredible staff to work with! The service, the food, the ambiance, and the flow of the night couldn’t have been better. My guests months after are still raving about what a beautiful venue it was, and how great the service and food was! My husband and I honestly can’t say enough good things. We would highly recommend Jedediah Hawkins Inn!

This was the fairytale wedding our daughter dreamed about. From the first moment we arrived everything was perfect. Our rooms were ready and the staff was so attentive and any request we had was met with a smile and incredible energy. This is an unbelievably great venue and such a beautiful destination for our family and friends. Lia Polites was readily available through all the planning stages our daughters wedding. From the rehearsal dinner, bon fire, wedding, after party, and breakfast the following morning every part of the celebration was spectacular.

Unlike most venues, where you are told how the wedding will be structured, at Jedediah Hawkins you have much more flexibility. You have full access to the dining room and solarium, the outdoor patio, the barn, and a large lawn area. In addition, JH is home to a top notch and popular restaurant. Our daughter chose to have her July 9th ceremony in the barn (A/C), the cocktail hour on the patio, and the reception under a tent. An outdoor ceremony is also a popular option here. Everything flowed seamlessly the entire day. We had dinner and dancing under the tent, while guests could stroll the grounds, play lawn games, or relax in the adirondack chairs. There's no need for a photo booth when the scenery is as stunning as it is here. We met with Tyler, the chef, a few weeks before the wedding to finalize the menu, based on what ingredients would be fresh and available that time of year. The passed hors d'oeuvres included tuna tartare with Dijon and shallot, sliders with Gruyere cheese, crab cakes with lemon aioli and dates wrapped in maple glazed bacon. We also had a Tuscan table with a wide range of breads, dips, cheeses, meats and fruits. All of the food was delicious, fresh and beautifully displayed. In addition to being a gourmet chef, Tyler has an extensive background in high end catering for up to several hundred guests at a time. This was clear during the reception, as the food was served quickly and efficiently to every table. Our entree choices were roasted branzino with root vegetables, and summer short ribs with corn, tomato and asparagus succotash. Everything was perfectly prepared and beautifully plated, just as you receive in their excellent restaurant. Lia, Colin, Grace and the entire staff are committed to ensuring that your event follows your personal vision, rather than any pre-determined formula or schedule. In short, while we set our expectations very high, they were exceeded in every way possible.

Jedediah Hawkins Inn was an amazing, intimate location for our wedding. From the five star food to the immaculate landscaping to the quick and friendly service from all of the staff, we couldn't be more happy with our experience. Each of our guests left saying that this was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever been to, and so unique from the more typical venues on Long Island. The Barn was the perfect place for dessert and dancing while the solarium provided a classic ambiance for dinner. An outdoor ceremony in perfect weather and an area for outdoor activities made the day so much fun. We could not be happier with our wedding.

An amazing night! An attentive staff bustled calmly and were there at the drop of a hat to fill any last minute requests in the midst of family and friends arriving. An incredible, warm and romantic setting in the gazebo, then to the solarium filled with beautiful lighting and delicious cheese and wine. The kitchen had it dialed in all night..food was out of this world. Our guests kept saying it was the most romantic wedding they've ever been to, (not to mention the light snowfall that happened right after we said 'I do'). If we could do it all over again, we would certainly chose Jedediah's!

Lia and staff were amazing to work with. Lia's recommendations were spot on. The space is amazing and food is second to none! I highly recommend JHI whether you are looking for a small intimate reception of 20 like ours in the speakeasy or for 100+ guests. The Inn is remarkable...a well balanced blend of old and modern, tastefully decorated with beautiful artwork. We stayed in the Belvedere Suite which was truly spectacular. A true gem of a room to capture beautiful memories before the ceremony. Thank you Lia and staff at JHI for making our special day so much more fabulous than expected!
Lisa · Married on 10/15/2016
I had an intimate ceremony and reception in the barn at JHI and had an AMAZING wedding. Lia and her team are extremely easy to work with. They made my last minute (planned in 9 weeks!) wedding stress free and it really was the wedding of my dreams! I had fun and I was just so happy to absorb in all the little details. My guess were all impressed by the property and how accommodating JHI is. I highly and whole heartedly recommend JHI for a wedding. You could easily do a wedding of 20 to even 80 or 100 people here. Thank you!!!!! My husband and I will be back for our anniversary!

Tom · Married on 05/22/2016
My wife and I wanted to have a small intimate wedding on long island. Jedediah Hawkins Inn was perfect. Long island is filled with "wedding factories" this is far from it. It is a one stop shop. You can get married on site rain or shine. You can have dinner in the speakeasy, the solarium, the barn outside of if you want to go wild get some tents and have a large wedding on the grounds behind the Inn. The food is excellent, the staff is very friendly and professional. Everyone is full of smiles. We stayed the night before and the night after our wedding and the service was great. Our event coordinator Katie is the nicest person you'll meet and very down to earth. She doesn't push or try and sell you on anything. She is very detail orientated. I would not change anything about our wedding day at Jedediah.

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding weekend thanks to Jedediah Hawkins Inn. We had a 120 person weddin ceremony and reception at the inn that our guests are STILL raving about! First of all, the grounds and inn are a perfect understated but elegantly rusic North Fork country-chique atmosphere that felt like a home away from home. The staff were extremely pleasant and willing to help with anything and everything. The food was superb- local, creative, delicious with something for everyone to rave about. Our guests that stayed overnight were impressed with and extremely comfortable in the rooms and the family style breakfast the next morning was perfect to reflect on our special day together with family and friends. The suite was so beautiful and comfortable that we simply didn't want to leave! We really have no complaints other than wishing we could relive it all over again. We would recommend this wedding venue to ANYONE!

Thank you, Jedediah Hawkins Inn!! Your staff is incredible, the food is unbelievable and the Inn was the perfect setting for our dream wedding. We will see you soon.

The stunningly beautiful setting, the amazing inn accommodations, the farm-to-table menu choices/the chef’s talent, the ever-accommodating inn manager Colin, and most of all the “no worries” venue event planner Katie -- everything combined to make our wedding just as we imagined it could be! From the very beginning to the last minute of the wedding day, event planner Katie helped us with every detail, and worked tirelessly (from responding to every email and phone call about details to physically setting up the chairs for the ceremony!) to enable us to make every aspect of our wedding uniquely our own. Chef Sasha’s delectable menu for the wedding, which consisted of cocktail hour plus ongoing food stations throughout the evening, topped off by the cake, which was a family recipe, was flawless. We had the entire place to ourselves (our grown children and an elderly aunt stayed in the five other rooms, while we had the incomparable Belvedere suite) for two days, during which the inn’s manager Colin made us feel right at home and could not have been more accommodating. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to! We loved it so much we already booked a return stay for our first anniversary!

Jedediah Hawkins Inn was definitely our favorite venue that we considered, and we were so glad that they were willing to work with our budget to make it happen for us. It wasn't cheap, but it also wasn't crazy expensive, especially given the location. We thought it was a really great value for what they offer---the food, service, and the house/grounds were all off-the-charts amazing. Katie worked really hard to make everything go smoothly for us, and to make the event the kind of wedding we wanted. The place is already so beautiful that we didn't have to worry about decoration---we just got flowers for the ceremony, some of which were repurposed on tables for the reception. We had around 120 guests, which meant we took over the whole place for the night (the inn rooms are incredible---especially the Belvedere suite! And breakfast the next day was fantastic), and we had a more flexible reception arrangement without assigned seating and with buffet stations scattered around the property. The quality of everything was so high, but it also didn't feel stuffy or fake. And, we cannot stress enough---the food is ridiculously good!
