This is the second year that my Grand-daughter and I stayed here. She goes in the front door of our room and out the back slider to play in a great sand box, on the swing and monkey bars. You are met by either Eileen or Kevin who own the place, and for the 5 days we were their, they... More

Another successful vacation at Bowen's by the Bays in 2015. Can't say enough good things about this place. It just feels like home. Grilling almost every night and eating outside at picnic table right outside our own cottage. Doesn't get any better. Kids really enjoyed the pool this year. And when we weren't spending time in the cabin as a... More

Leaving Bowen's by the Bays we had only wished we had planned a longer stay. With three generations including myself, my two grown daughters and my grandson, it is our tradition to get away for a few days together when we can to spend family time. My two-year-old grandson enjoyed the sand boxes, swings, pool and hammock. We loved the... More

We stayed for only one night in a one bedroom cottage and wished we could have stayed longer. Upon driving up to check in, I was impressed by how well the property was maintained. You can tell the owners take pride in the property. The cottage itself had a nice deck, a full kitchen with a dining area and a... More

I wish we had been able to get a cottage / cabin, as that might have changed how much we would be interested in going back. The regular room as small for our family, but we knew that going in. The kids loved the shuffleboard, golf and tennis (and great that they have a lot of rackets and balls to... More

We stayed one night with 2 kids. They enjoyed the pool which is in the middle of the park-like area. Other features: hammocks, tables and chairs outside (great for picknick, playing cards and so on). The trains in the morning were a bit loud, otherwise we all slept like babies, it was quiet and peaceful and relaxing. Very friendly staff,... More

Where do I begin? This is my 9th year at Bowen’s by the Bays. It began with one of motel rooms the first year. I stayed for 3 days. It was wonderful. But this place is addicting. I then learned you could bring your dog to the cottages, so I did the next year. We then stayed 5 days. It... More

My husband and I stayed this past weekend and were happily surprised! The facility is exceptionally well maintained. Children laughing and playing was the soundtrack! There are cabins and rooms. We stayed in a room with a king bed and terrace. We had coffee outside each morning, what a peaceful start to the day. The Bowen Family is wonderful, Eileen,... More

Always a pleasure to be able to spend some time relaxing on the beautifully landscaped Bowens property. We have been coming here for many years and eagerly look forward to returning whenever we have the opportunity.

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
