My son was playing a tournament at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank but I wanted to be in the Hamptons. We had a cute little studio unit with a sprawling back yard view of the amazingly landscaped lawn. We were able to drive right up to the door as well. The unit is clean, cozy and very charming. The bed we...

My wife and I had a great time celebrating our anniversary. The place was awesome and the Bowen's family are great people. The grounds are private and the common areas were very clean. We would recommend this as a quick getaway or stay for a week.

I can't say enough about Bowens. My husband and I like it so much that we go every year and this year makes seven straight years in a row. the cottage is clean comfortable and the porch is completely screened in, so our two cats can sit and watch the birds and squirrels and not get lost. It is close...

My husband and I recently stayed at Bowen's by the Bays for a long weekend this past June and we absolutely loved it. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage with another couple and were happy to find our cabin was spotlessly clean, from the linens, to the bathroom and everything in between. The grounds were beautifully kept and upheld...

I was having little luck finding anyplace to stay on my own that would be comfortable, in a good location yet moderatly priced. I contacted AAA, looking for their options and I am so glad I did! Bowens was their top pic for good reason; very clean, quiet, well kept, reasonably priced, we could not have asked for any more....

For many years when my son was in elementary school and through high school, we took him to Bowen's for a few days right before heading back to school. We loved it there and he still, at age 37, remembers it fondly. A few weeks ago he took his girlfriend there and she too loved it so my husband and...

We enjoy escaping NYC for a visit to Bowen's every summer. We love the pet-friendly cottages and our 2 pups enjoy the visit as much as we do! The location is great (across the street from the grocery store, next door to a beverage store). We always prepare our own meals while there (versus eating out) and enjoy grilling out...

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
