Our experience was far better than we ever expected. Our room was very clean and had a great view of the sound. The help was very friendly and helpful without exception. The fans in the room and the breeze from the water made our room comfortable despite the lack of air conditioning which I usually turn off anyway. Our bed... More

Attended a anniversary party for friends. Food and service were outstanding. Location is simply one of the best views of Long Island Sound. Grounds are lovely and inviting. You just can't miss this!!!

Our experience at the Owenego could not have been better. First, this is a place that belongs to a different time. Its a family run beach club with a small inn operation. If you're expecting a full service luxury hotel, look elsewhere. And, even though it is a beach club, I wouldnt take the kids--its a B&B: smaller rooms, no... More

We had an absolutely wonderful time during our stay at the Owenego Inn. The rooms and the grounds are extremely well-kept and absolutely beautiful. The water was a little chilly for swimming that early in the season, but we didn't let that stop us! The fee for the room was very reasonable, and we found all of the staff very... More
