Jedediah Hawkins Inn

Why You’ll Love It

  • Award-winning Executive Chef Keith Luce is praised by the James Beard Foundation and Food & Wine
  • Gorgeous renovated property—originally built in 1863—near wineries, the Great Peconic Bay, and The Hamptons
  • Honored with TripAdvisor’s 2012 Certificate of Excellence
  • Gourmet breakfast and chef’s tasting menu

Start with an Italianate-style inn. Add culinary guru Keith Luce—one of Food & Wine’s Top 10 Chefs and guest judge on Top Chef—and his award-winning restaurant, Luce & Hawkins. Fold in charming rooms and nearby vineyards: the enticing result is Jedediah Hawkins Inn.

Situated on the cusp of North Fork’s wine country, this historic property isn’t only famous for its lush gardens and relaxing accommodations. Mention Jedediah Hawkins Inn and there’s one word that’s bound to dominate the conversation: food. And for good reason: Luce & Hawkins’ sustainable farm-to-table fare (like Chef Luce’s signature Nofo duck wings and shrimp and lobster meatballs) is as delicious as it is unpretentious.

And there’s really no better way to experience it than with a tasting menu personalized by the chef himself. You and your honey will be treated to four courses of fresh, local ingredients (many from the kitchen’s own garden) before drifting off in your cozy guest room.
