One of Jedediah Hawkins Inn’s owners, Lia Polites welcomed Mary McGuire and myself for a pre-Valentine dinner to celebrate the hanging of my floral and still life art. Within a short walk from our South Jamesport residence, this newly renovated Victorian mansion shone brightly this frigid starry night as we delighted in the culinary ambiance worthy of palate and palette.
The house, restored by Jeff Hallock, descendent of original settlers, was built in 1863, in the rich tradition of the past while indulging in the ecclecticism of the 21st century.
