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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

First, even though I am posting this 7 months after my visit to Bowen's by the Bays, I wrote this review right after we stayed there when it was fresh in my mind. (I have spent much of this snowy winter dreaming of going back to Bowen's by the Bays for another wonderful family vacation.) Review: Bowen's by the Bays... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More
