This was our first time at Bowens and had a great experience. Very reasonably priced and close to beach and shopping in South Hampton. The room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed walking the beautiful grounds with our 3 month old and cant wait to bring her back to play in the many kid friendly areas. We look forward to... More

We stayed for 5 nights in August. Although the weather was not great during our stay (Meaning no days out to the beach) there was plenty to keep our boys occupied. Our cabin was right next to the play area so it was an ideal back garden for them! They met a family from the next cabin so the lovely... More

Having recently moved to New York City, my husband and I were looking for a place where we could take our 2 dogs to get out of the city for the weekend and Bowen's by the Bay was the perfect place! Making the reservations was easy and when we got there we were welcomed with a bag full of goodies... More

I have been staying at Bowens for years as it is a dog friendly and reasonably priced place to stay without the congestion of East Hampton or South Hampton. Eileen and Kevin are wonderful hosts and even play tennis with us if the courts are open and they have time. It is a very kid friendly place as well.

For the past 8 summers, Bowen's has been my "home away from home." Columbine, my "cottage in the woods", is cozy, charming and immaculate. The Bowen's staff provides the weekly cleaning and linen service; I provide the cut flowers. Eileen and Kevin are gracious hosts and attentive to their guest; while providing a friendly, safe and quiet environment. See you... More

Bowen's by the Bay is a hidden gem! The worst thing I could say is the cabins are on the small size however fully furnished, kitchens are stocked (not food). They have screened porches, personal grilles and a hammock!! Plus a tennis court with a batting practice corner. Walking distance from supermarket and McDonalds. The grounds are well kept! The...

We just got home from New York and an excellent stay at Bowen's. It was easy to make reservations, the owners were super nice and gave us recommendations of where to go and eat, and our stay was really great there. We used the pool, the tennis court, and the playground. We brought 2 small children with us and it... More

My stay at "Bowen's by the Bays" was what I would call "An Affair To Remember"! What an amazing place! Everything, and I mean, everything, is impeccably clean and neat! The location can not be better! The owners and the whole atmosphere are more than friendly! As for the attractive, colorful, well manicured lawns, it seems that all the most... More

This is our second summer staying with the Bowen's! A GREAT vacation for our family. Blew away our expectations this year. We have a 2 and 4 year old and the amount of things we did this year was amazing. Within half an hour we went to beaches, kid's museums, aquariums, amusement parks, movies and restaurants. And that's just what... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family oriented resort with rooms and cottages that have been described as quaint and charming. Each is individually decorated and has it's own personality. We have a pool, lighted tennis court, shuffleboard, small putting green and playground. The grounds are shady and flower filled. Pets are welcome in the cottages by prior arrangement, but never in the rooms. This offers a choice for those with allergies to stay where there have never been pets. All accommodations have flat screen cable tv and air conditioning. All rooms have refrigerators and coffeemakers with complimentary tea & coffee, and all cottages as well as the studio have compact but complete kitchens equipped with dishes, pots, utensils and microwave. We are approximately 3 miles from both ocean and bay beaches where all are welcome. Pets can be taken to the beach before 9 a.M. And after 6 p.M. Both North & South Forks can be easily accessed from here, and we are about halfway between Southampton and Westhampton Villages. ... more   less
