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.

Eileen and Kevin Bowen are true ambassadors to your having a lovely time in the Hamptoms . The cabins are warmly & artfully decorated, comfortable, cozy and clean as well as adequately equipped with all the amenities needed to make your stay quite comfortable, including even WiFi !! :-) which is so important to my teenage grandkids. The Bowens readily make themselves available for any inquiries you have with regard what may be of interest to you in the area. The grounds are charming, and while they engender a feeling of seculsion - there are many opportunities for shopping, beach and bay excursions , etc. at your fingertips. This year was our 4th visit and we (me, daughter, grandchildren and dog) look forward to enjoying this pet friendly environment in years to come.

Myself and adult son were in the area to celebrate an 80th birthday of a dear friend and his wife who cared for my older sister. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff member who directed us to our room. It was a long day for both of us, we drove around visiting all the places we were familiar with since the family had a year round home in the area and we would stay with them on a regular basis. It is a favorite place for my son who has some very fond memories of the area. Bowens was like staying with the family all over again. Its family run and cared for. Its a place where you will feel at home and can relax and its close to shopping where you can pop in and pick up something quick to eat or something you ran low on.

My husband and I and our three fur babies stayed in a pet friendly 2 bedroom cottage. The cottage was private, quaint, clean, and roomy with comfortable beds. The kitchen was well stocked and appliances were immaculate. The bathroom was very clean and all amenities were provided. The hot water and water pressure was very good. Window air conditioners in the bedrooms and living room area, internet and TV worked very well. The grounds were well kept. Although there are no housekeeping services provided for the cottages, the owners provided an excellent system to provide fresh towels, etc. as needed which we found this to be a positive thing. The dogs were safe, no one entered the cottage, it wasn’t necessary to to vacate the cottage at a certain time so cleaning staff could come in. The location was great with restaurants nearby and a supermarket across the street. The owners and staff are very friendly and attentive to needs of their guests, for example the coffee maker was broken and quickly replaced by a brand new Mr Coffee maker. There is a dog walk area with doggie clean up bags and collection cans provided. My husband and I loved staying here with our three fur babies. We are definitely planning to stay in the cottages again. There are not many places willing to accommodate guests with pets. Finding Bowens by the Bays in Hampton Bays was great as we needed a place to stay with our three dogs while preparing for a wedding in Westhampton.

We arrived expecting to stay in an air BNB we booked months ago- as soon as we got off the Ferry we were told the Air BNB had to cancel last minute. We were coming to town for a wedding and we had a dog so there were very limited places. Luckily we found this spot, really cute cottages, great location amazing for guests with pets and much cleaner than I would have expected. We were there for just one night but it seems like a great spot to stay for a week. The style is not modern but thats not a bad thing - cottages are supposed to feel homey. The owners were very sweet and allowed us to check in two hours early to get ready for the wedding which was AMAZING. Overall I would stay again if I needed to visit the area.

We attended a wedding out in Southold and booked this for just an quick overnight. I really think it's an individual preference and what type of traveler you are. The staff were very nice and friendly and accomodating. We had a cabin way in the back which was directly behind train tracks. It was so dark, we were unaware of this fact. I can sleep through anything but the first time it went through, I thought it was coming directly through our cabin. I didn't hear it after that but apparently my family said it went through several other times. There was no dead bolt or a second lock on the door which I didn't like. It was very clean but quirky. Does need some updating. In the day time, it did look nicer. Yet at night you had to take this dark road behind the property and there were no cabin numbers that were visible. I had mixed feelings about the place, but once again was there for a very short time, so keep this in mind. Didn't find the beds comfortable and I can usually sleep anywhere. There was a screened in porch with a picnic table, large swimming pool. There is a strict no smoking policy anywhere on the premises and you had to walk off the property. It personally didn't bother me because I am very respectful that way but my husband was not happy. He would never smoke in the cabin or a room, we're just not like that but he found it ridiculous that you couldn't smoke on the porch since you were not in close proximity to the other cabins or people. It didn't really play into our stay because we were in the room maybe all of 8 hours and sleeping. Plus side is it was clean and simplistic and brought you back to easier times, negatives for me were that it wasn't comfortable and was outdated and there really should have been a top lock on the door. Mixed feelings. Really depends on what you're looking for.

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We have found the complete non smoking policy to be important as many people are not as respectful as you and your husband are. You are correct that not every type of lodging will appeal to every traveler. We have found that the happiest guests are those who chose best what suits their tastes. Thanks for staying with us.
