This was our third stay of five days -- we just find it a great place to relax. The grounds are extremely well kept -- lots of flowers, shady trees, and sunny spots as you like, and a cleanly maintained pool. The rooms are individually decorated (tastefully!) and very comfortable. And the staff is terrific. Highly recommended.

Arrived Saturday morning and left Monday morning. Very friendly owners. Very clean cottage. Liked the privacy and how convenient it was to all the things we wanted to see. Grounds are well kept and we saw the owners working on their flower gardens. Will definitely return.

I had family visiting from California and they wanted to visit the Hampton's. I had not been myself so it seemed like a perfect trip for all. That is until weren't for needing to book a hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bowens. We found it really comfortable and peaceful. Great facilities at the sight, lovely swimming pool and tennis court, and very close to shopping and eating places as well as the beach. Great to just hang out there, or use as a base to explore that end of Long Island. The owners were really...

Not the least expensive place to stay but worth every penny. I had. A lovely two bedroom cottage. Comfortable beds. Extra linnens on hand. Very clean. Cozy decor. Full kitchen and stocked with cooking supplies. I loved sitting on the rocking chair on the enclosed porch. Quiet location. Beautiful grounds.

Very lovely hotel with guest houses. Feels like a small resort. Stayed in one of the motel rooms. Very quiet. Very clean and comfortable. Even though by a main busy road virtually no noise. Owners and staff very friendly. Would happily stay again. Great base for staying in the Hamptons as centrally located. Child friendly. Lots for the kids to...

We rented a 2 bedroom cottage for 2 couples. It had 1bdrm with a queen size, and 1bdrm with 2 twins. We pushed the twins together. The bathroom was modern, clean and had sufficient hot water and pressure. The towels were full size and soft. I am usually leary about linens ,when not staying in a 5 star hotel. I...

This is the second year that my Grand-daughter and I stayed here. She goes in the front door of our room and out the back slider to play in a great sand box, on the swing and monkey bars. You are met by either Eileen or Kevin who own the place, and for the 5 days we were their, they...

Another successful vacation at Bowen's by the Bays in 2015. Can't say enough good things about this place. It just feels like home. Grilling almost every night and eating outside at picnic table right outside our own cottage. Doesn't get any better. Kids really enjoyed the pool this year. And when we weren't spending time in the cabin as a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family oriented resort with rooms and cottages that have been described as quaint and charming. Each is individually decorated and has it's own personality. We have a pool, lighted tennis court, shuffleboard, small putting green and playground. The grounds are shady and flower filled. Pets are welcome in the cottages by prior arrangement, but never in the rooms. This offers a choice for those with allergies to stay where there have never been pets. All accommodations have flat screen cable tv and air conditioning. All rooms have refrigerators and coffeemakers with complimentary tea & coffee, and all cottages as well as the studio have compact but complete kitchens equipped with dishes, pots, utensils and microwave. We are approximately 3 miles from both ocean and bay beaches where all are welcome. Pets can be taken to the beach before 9 a.M. And after 6 p.M. Both North & South Forks can be easily accessed from here, and we are about halfway between Southampton and Westhampton Villages. ... more   less
