Having been given the green light at the last moment to go to the Hamptons, I called several places seeking accommodations for approximately 10 days. The only property available was Bowen’s. Having stayed before, I was expecting no frills accommodations. However, this time around even some of the basics were missing. Having traveled extensively over the years for both business... More

We rented six units at Bowens for a family event. All were clean and well kept. When anyone in our party needed anything, it arrived promptly with a smile. The kids enjoyed the pool, the adults enjoyed the quiet and I heard no.complaints. Thanks to the Bowens for their hospitality.

This was our third stay of five days -- we just find it a great place to relax. The grounds are extremely well kept -- lots of flowers, shady trees, and sunny spots as you like, and a cleanly maintained pool. The rooms are individually decorated (tastefully!) and very comfortable. And the staff is terrific. Highly recommended.

Arrived Saturday morning and left Monday morning. Very friendly owners. Very clean cottage. Liked the privacy and how convenient it was to all the things we wanted to see. Grounds are well kept and we saw the owners working on their flower gardens. Will definitely return.

I had family visiting from California and they wanted to visit the Hampton's. I had not been myself so it seemed like a perfect trip for all. That is until weren't for needing to book a hotel. Both my cousin and I are self-professed hotel snobs (smile). That's the great thing about Trip Advisor; we really booked due to the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Bowens. We found it really comfortable and peaceful. Great facilities at the sight, lovely swimming pool and tennis court, and very close to shopping and eating places as well as the beach. Great to just hang out there, or use as a base to explore that end of Long Island. The owners were really... More

Not the least expensive place to stay but worth every penny. I had. A lovely two bedroom cottage. Comfortable beds. Extra linnens on hand. Very clean. Cozy decor. Full kitchen and stocked with cooking supplies. I loved sitting on the rocking chair on the enclosed porch. Quiet location. Beautiful grounds.

Very lovely hotel with guest houses. Feels like a small resort. Stayed in one of the motel rooms. Very quiet. Very clean and comfortable. Even though by a main busy road virtually no noise. Owners and staff very friendly. Would happily stay again. Great base for staying in the Hamptons as centrally located. Child friendly. Lots for the kids to... More

We rented a 2 bedroom cottage for 2 couples. It had 1bdrm with a queen size, and 1bdrm with 2 twins. We pushed the twins together. The bathroom was modern, clean and had sufficient hot water and pressure. The towels were full size and soft. I am usually leary about linens ,when not staying in a 5 star hotel. I... More
