“Perfect for families with children and/or pets”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The location could not be better for making yourself feel at home in the Hamptons. Very close to all kinds of food and beverage shopping as well as sundries. The staff, every one of them that we came in contact with, were really nice and helpful. The cottage we stayed in was dated and not glamorous BUT could not have been any cleaner or better equipped for making us feel comfortable. The setting is so sweet, so many flowers and shade trees, hammocks at each cottage. We will stay there again, a great choice for that east end getaway.

Room Tip: Cottages are perfect for families with or without pets.

My family and I stayed at Bowen's for a little under a week near the beginning of July and couldn't have been happier. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Because we were there mid week, we basically had the place to ourselves. Even with all there is to do in the Hamptons during the summer, probably the best part of our vacation was relaxing and swimming in the pool at Bowen's. I would highly recommend this place for a stay that won't decimate your budget and provides the peace and relaxation needed in the hustle and bustle of a Hamptons summer.

Can't express what a great experience my first stay at the Bowen's place was. The personal interaction was great. With wife and two kids, didn't know whether to stay on grounds and experience the tranquility or go out and visit sites. Have to say the nights and days spent on the grounds have much more memories that will last a long time. I'm excited about any trip back to the area and it would absolutely be at the Bowen's!

Stayed on a weeknight in July without advance notice as we decided to extend our vacation and didn't want to return to the city heatwave.
A great value for a private cottage with strong AC, hammock, cable TV, comfortable and new. Had our dogs with us who behaved well and were comfortable. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. The pool was spotless and they were adding water to try to cool it off with the mid 90s temps. The grounds were well maintained and plenty of parking. Close to grocery and Petco if any items were needed.
Beaches were very nice and not crowded. Much better than going all the way to East Hampton or other pricier, far out areas.

Looking for a relaxing setting in a woodsy environment? If your destination is Hampton Bays,don't look any further than Bowens by the Bays.Nice comfortably cooled rooms make sleeping an easy proposition.Large flat screen HDTV is available in your room for your viewing pleasure.Enjoy hamming it up in a hammock?Guess what?That is also available!Want to practice for your next tennis tournament?Go volley yourself silly on their tennis court.If becoming the next Michael Phelps is your goal,try lapping it up in their very comfortable pool.The proprietors,the Bowens,are very accommodating and will do their best to make your stay a very enjoyable experience.It was very difficult to leave at the end of my 4 day vacation,and I believe you will feel the same sentiment at the end of your stay.

My wife, toddler and I stayed here a few weeks ago, and we enjoyed our visit. The room was cozy and comfortable.

More importantly, Eileen was extremely kind to my son who was sick during the trip. As anybody with small children knows, traveling can be very stressful especially when a little one is sick.

Eileen was extremely helpful and made us feel very comfortable, even though we needed to call on her for extra help. I'm very appreciative and look forward to a return trip.

This was a great place for us to stay with our lab this past weekend. Cute, clean pool, hammocks, and adorable cabins. The cabin was super clean, smelled like fresh laundry and had everything necessary for a week stay (we only were there one night). The bed was super comfy and the staff was really nice, very down to business. You get a treat bag when you check in- snacks are always welcome. It is about a 10 minute drive to the beaches, but a really direct route and the beaches are beautiful. Parking is free all the way down the end, to the left, after you cross the bridge there. Overall a really nice experience and a very comfortable place to stay.
