Visitors Praise Seekonk

A Pennsylvania couple says it will recommend the town to others.

Seekonk Patch received the following letter:

We recently spent time in Seekonk and the surrounding area. As inhabitants of a suburban Pennsylvania community, we are aware that small towns throughout the country are struggling to promote local businesses and stimulate their economies. Consequently, Seekonk is fortunate to have Historic Jacob Hill Inn as a part of its economic foundation.

A five-star, privately owned and operated bed and breakfast dating from 1722, the inn boasts historic significance as well as marvelous accommodations. It also promotes the financial well-being of the entire area.

During our stay, our activities included dining at Chardonnay and Tito's Cantin, making purchases at Vinnie's Antiques Center and refueling our car at Gabriel's Gulf Station. We experienced New Bedford's Working Waterfront Festival and Providence's Water Fire. We bought snacks and souvenirs.

Many of the restaurants and events we enjoyed were recommended by the Jacob Hill innkeepers Bill and Eleonora Rezek, who not only provided directions and tips, but also arranged reservations. This type of personal connection is not possible at a large chain motel and makes the difference between a one-time convenience stay and multiple return visits.

Now back in Pennsylvania, we are recommending the inn and Seekonk to our friends. We also hope to promote the development of similar high-quality businesses in our home town. Congratulations Seekonk—the Rezek's dedication to Historic Jacob Hill Inn and its visitors has made the inn a first-rate attraction that draws people to the area and raises everyone's standard of living.

I agree that The Jacob Hill Inn is certainly a treasure within this community. This wonderful historic Inn is often more appreciated by those traveling from other areas but should be valued by the community as well. Bill and Eleonora Rezek are amazing ambassadors of this town. Those unfamiliar with this amazing place should visit their website and spread the word about this huge asset to the area! We should support our local businesses and appreciate the hard work it takes to maintain and preserve a property of this magnitude! Kasey Rogers, Seekonk, MA

Bill & Eleanora have always been special to us here at Vinny's Antiques Center by having their guest visit our co-op as part of their "to do!" Vinny & I have also been long time friends with the Rezeks' who share our love of history and antiques. Vinny's will be celebrating our 20th year in business on Jan 1 lol Bill & Eleanora were there from the beginning! Thank you for your visit and especially for your kind words to such kind folks like the Rezeks'!

Bill and El are two of our favorite people on this planet. We look forward to each and every trip back to JHI, not just for the Inn, but to see them too!
