With 2-night minimums being the standard for weekend booking in the Hamptons, finding a good place to stay for one night is not easy. I found this place last-minute through TripAdvisor and couldn't be happier. The price was reasonable, the amenities were great, the staff was very friendly, the room was spotless with the A/C cranking, and I received a goody-bag with snacks and waters upon check-in. This place is definitely one I would go back to!

Hi, Tyler.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thought about Bowen's. We do typically have a 2 night minimum on weekends, but sometimes reservations result in a single night being available, and we are delighted that you took advantage of the opening to visit us.

It's always nice to hear when folks enjoy their experience, and we hope you will visit again.

This unique hotel is located nearby beaches, parks, restaurants, and shopping centers. The cottages are great for families, for those with dogs, and are very clean!! The owners are very hospitable and so welcoming and even provide a "welcome package". They really thought of everything. We are happy we stayed there and look forward to staying again. If you plan on vacationing in Hampton Bays, it's definitely the place to stay. If you're looking for tennis lessons in the area, Kevin is a very knowledgeable and friendly instructor who works well with children. We will recommend to our friends and family!

Small Playground and nice clean pool, sandbox and tennis court. This is the second year in a row we came to here and love it more! The flowers and the pond make it a wonderful place to walk around and relax. We feel safe letting the kids run around in the evening and having fun. All of the rooms are on the first floor so there is easy access to them. My mom also stayed and hung out by the pool all day.

You never know what you are truly going to get booking online but I have to say we couldn't have been happier! Eileen & Kevin really run a wonderful place and I highly recommend it to families as well as anyone else looking for a nice getaway.This was our first family trip and we were traveling with our 9 month old daughter. We were thrilled they allowed us to bring our dog, and it was only a small extra fee per day to have him along. I had some questions prior to our arrival and Eileen was always super quick with responses and so kind.
Upon our arrival we were given a goodie bag with snacks & water and treat for our pup which was a nice surprise. We proceeded to our 2 bedroom cottage, the grounds are pretty nice and green and extremely well kept. We had a coal grill and picnic table on our outside lawn and there were also adirondack chairs for our use. The cottage had a nice screened in porch which we sat out on at night that also had a picnic style table on it. Inside was alsona table for four to use a kitchen with a full sized fridge & stove, microwave & coffee maker along with dishes, untensils, pots & pans, you name it they have it there for your use. The cottage was well taken care of and as clean as you could hope for they really keep everything so nice, I have been to some places in Montauk and East Hampton for twice the price and they were never as clean and welcoming as Bowens. Anything we needed Eileen & Kevin were happy to help, you can tell they love their business & their grounds it showed in every way.
For a first family trip this was a win win, I hope Bowens never changes their hospitality and generosity to their guests we can't wait to go back next year. Anyone traveling with an infant this is great place for a family, we slept with the pack & play in our bedroom and it worked just fine.
A few things to know, Stop & Shop is across the street and you can definitely stock up on groceries after arriving, we brought ours prior but it's good to know, Panera is also walking distance and you can walk 10 minutes into "town" to get gelato or a bite. So much is nearby. And there is a beverage depot next door
We highly recommend Bowens, you will not be disappointed:)

The cottage we had was perfect for 6 adults. The rooms were very clean, the location is great and we had all the amenities we needed. We had no problem getting fresh towels every day, and the owners went above and beyond to help us get around. I would definitely recommend Bowen's by the Bays to friends and family!
