This was our first stay at Bowens. We had a two bedroom cottage and a room with a queen bed. We were a group of 7 and we all loved it. We also had a group of friends visit us for a day of fun at the pool and then a cookout in the evening. The all loved the place...

I stayed in 1 guestroom before checking into 3 cottages for a group of girls. The rooms were great - clean, comfortable. The grounds were awesome with a relaxing and clean pool. We had no complaints at all and a couple girls in my party are speaking of going back. One who is excited that they are dog-friendly yet you...

We love staying at Bowen's. Eileen, Kevin and everyone else is friendly and willing to help with whatever you need. The cottages are clean, comfortable and have kitchens with everything you need to cook (bonus: there is a grocery store across the street!). The grounds are amazing: lush with beautiful flowers everywhere you look. The pool is big and always...

We stayed in one of the cottages for the weekend because the hotel was close to an event we were in Hampton Bays attending. The cottage was comfortable, but the bathroom was very small. A small shelf would help quite a bit, there is no place but the small sink or toilet to put things like toothbrushes and makeup. Furnishings...

Thank you so much for taking to time to offer your comments. We are very happy that you had an enjoyable stay. Your insight into the shelving issue in the bathrooms was very helpful, and we have since added shelves to all bathrooms. If another event brings you to Hampton Bays we hope you will consider staying with us again....

My husband, dog and I had stayed at Bowens on the Bays several years ago. When we decided to do another mini vacation, we immediately thought of Bowens. Eileen and Kevin are so accommodating and friendly. The cottages are comfortable and clean.

My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of staying at Bowen’s By The Bays for 4 months. Along with our two dogs, we were all warmly welcomed and given an adorable cottage to live in. Everything was spotless, and it was so comfortable to just move in with our luggage and have everything at hand. The cottage included everything...

This is a sweet spot to go with your family and get back to basics in a clean cottage with a bbq, hammock, and site amenities like tennis, shuffleboard, a pool, and putting golf. The hosts are friendly, and the property is quiet. It is on a somewhat busy road, but set back from it. My only wish is that...

I made a last minute reservation to stay at Bowen's when the house I was going to stay at wasn't ready yet. I had my dog and we rented one of the little cabins. I wish I had more time there because the grounds were really lovely and relaxing, and the cabins were adorable - nothing fancy, but very charming...

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
