We rented one of the 3 bedroom cottages. Everything about the cottage was great. It had a fully equipped kitchen (with all matching plates, etc.), each room had it's own air conditioning, the living/dining area was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and provided us with plenty of towels. It was decorated nicely and was extremely clean! The pool was... More

My father and brother came up from Florida and had a wonderful stay with the Bowen's. It is the type of vacation that beautiful memories are made of. Ken and Eileen were wonderful hosts. A great pool, tennis court, shuffle board and Ken even helped out with dropping off my family to get some breakfast in the morning with his... More

We had a wonderful stay here in a lovely cottage. The grounds are beautifully kept. The rooms are very clean. The location is great. My dogs just loved the screened in porch. I would definitely stay here again.

Quiet spot priced right. Felt like I was back in the 70's. It's not the Mondrian hotel but it's not supposed to be. Great attentive staff, room was clean, grounds were beautiful and pool was great. In an area where to often places are overpriced and over rated this was the perfect spot. Will stay there again in the future!

We were in one of the cottages. It was clean, modern, private and pet friendly! Free wifi, cable, air conditioning. It's close to both the north and south shore beaches. The staff was wonderful- they are very pleasant and attended to our requests. The grounds are beautifully manicured. The pool is clean. The location is perfect. I highly recommend Bowen's... More

My wife and I went for a short 2 night honeymoon at Bowen's, and we couldn't have been happier. Our private cottage was very clean, modern and had every amenity we needed, including cable TV, A/C and even a freakin hammock. Bowen's was very accommodating for our puppy as well, and proved to be walking distance to a Stop &... More

Many thanks to the Bowen family for their comfortable, spacious and ultra clean studio accommodation.

Looking for a quick yet close get-away we opted for the Hamptons area for 2 nights midweek early June. Found Bowen's on-line and what attracted me was we could bring our little doggie if we stayed in their cottages. We were greeted by the owner who gave us a welcome bag including a doggie treat - nice gesture. The grounds... 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
