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.
William and Beverly Singer
