It’s hard to imagine back to a time when Jedediah Hawkins Inn was in such disrepair that it was slated for demolition. But that’s precisely where it was back in 2004, until it was saved from the wrecking ball in the 11th hour and subsequently restored to its former grandeur. Originally built in 1863 by sea captain Jedediah Hawkins, the property, constructed in the straight-from-a-fairytale Italianate style, is listed on the National Registry of Historical Places, and the renovation earned it the New York State Preservation Award. It sits of 22 acres, flanked by area farms that provide much of the offerings on the menus at each of the inn’s two restaurants, the elegant Jedediah Hawkins or the casual downstairs Speakeasy.

The six-room inn offers a quirky charm that fits well into almost anything you’re looking for in a destination, be it a quiet retreat to rekindle romance or an action-packed weekend seeing the sights of the North Fork. Each of the inn’s rooms boasts a unique style from the whimsical romance of the Rose Room to the elegance of the Sage Room.

All guests get a complimentary tasting at 14 area vineyards and friendly staff can arrange a private tour, limousine transportation or a picnic lunch. The Jamesport hotel also lends out bicycles to guests who might want to pedal to the beaches of Peconic Bay or the local farm stands.

There’s also plenty to do right on the grounds, from relaxing in the hammocks to playing a game of bocce ball. Get in a workout in the country-kitchen-turned-gym or sip a cocktail in the gazebo. Head to the barn to take in the work of local painters. It’s all at your fingertips at this magically restored pastoral escape that's just 1.5 hours from New York City.
