Stayed here in August for 3 nights en route to New York. Easy to find , lovely location . Even though it is by the main road once inside it is very quiet and peaceful. My six year old loved the cowboy themed room. Rooms open onto lovely garden and a stroll to the pool. Owners very courteous and nice... More

Annabelle, my pug dog and I have just returned from 3 lovely, peaceful, private (our own charming cottage) days spent at Eileen and Kevin's "Bowens" by the Bay! Lovely bright happy flowers surround the grounds, love is truly in every detail and Eileen and Kevin are splendid hosts, helpful, friendly and accommodating in every way. Annabelle and I have found... More

This was our first time staying at Bowen's by the Bays and we were not disappointed. Eileen was very gracious and helpful. She recommended several restaurants, even one where we could bring our dog to sit on the deck. Our cottage was very clean, spacious and had so many windows, which was great to let the fresh 'country' air in.... More

Located in the Hamptons community with the most waterfront and convenient to water sports, beach visits and many fine restaurants, this delightful place is clean, quite, attractive, and very affordable. A great place for a family week-end or a place to stay when visiting friends or relatives in the area. This is a true asset to the entire Hamptons community.

This is the 7th year my husband and I have gone to Bowen's. Just got home Saturday. It is still the best as far as we are concerned. It is still very clean and comfortable and sooo relaxing. Looking forward to next year. Thank you Eileen, Kevin, Mary and Anastasia.

I have stayed in probably hundreds of hotels, in dozens of countries on five continents. Bowen's By The Bays is my favourite. I like 5-star luxury, don't get me wrong. But Kevin and Lee Bowen ditch the concierge and personally do all they can to make your stay here as near perfect as possible. The grounds are spacious and beautiful.... More

After driving out from JFK along the many auto ways dodging traffic and mad drivers it was like pulling into Shangrila when we arrived at Bowens. We pulled off the highway into a wooded vale that had a range of colonial style cabins all fitted out with everything to allow a familly of 4 to sleep, shower and even prepare... More

Our family of three plus doggy love staying in their cottages. We had to ask ourselves, "how do they do it"? the answer is simple- the Bowens are on-site and know exactly how they want things to be. Landscaping with much attention to preserving nature's beauty, cleanliness, welcoming to all, kids and beloved pets included.It is a place where little... More

Searched for a place to stay at the last minute for August in the Hamptons and was lucky enough that Bowen's By the Bays had a vacancy. A quaint place in a great location. Only double beds in the motel rooms- which had cinder block rooms which made it quiet, except when the train went by. The LIRR tracks are... More

Last summer my daughter, my 2 grandkids, our family dog and I spent 3 nights/4 days at Bowen's. We had such a great time we couldn't wait to book a full week for this year. Once again, we had a lovely vacation experience. In addition to the comfortable, charming cottage, delightful pool and georgeous grounds, we much enjoyed the screened... More
