My husband and I stayed for three nights at Bowen's a few weeks ago. The grounds are so peaceful and pretty, the pool is very clean and inviting. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful (offering tips on restaurants and places to visit in the area). We stayed in the Hollyhock room. It was a pretty room and very quiet... More

We stayed for a weekend in June, 2015. The grounds were beautiful and the cabin was well appointed and very clean. Having stayed in many places around the world and being very disappointed too many times, Bowens By The Bay, was a "hidden gem" and we're looking forward to going back again!

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
