My husband & I enjoyed a lovely anniversary here! We also brought our tiny kitten too! We stayed in the Larkspur Cottage! This is the best place to stay for a absolute dreamy sleep and a truly beautiful surrounding property! Our cottage was very clean and spacious, with all the comforts of home! Even a sweet little goodie bag to take to your room for your stay! Eileen and her sister were very helpful in what to see and do. We will be returning, this is a remarkable place to stay, a LOVELY HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Larkspur Cottage. One bedroom Home Away From Home, every little detail and needful...

Stayed here in August for 3 nights en route to New York. Easy to find , lovely location . Even though it is by the main road once inside it is very quiet and peaceful. My six year old loved the cowboy themed room. Rooms open onto lovely garden and a stroll to the pool.
Owners very courteous and nice touch to provide a treat bag on arrival .
This is not 5 star luxury but as a value way to see the Hamptons I highly recommend .

Annabelle, my pug dog and I have just returned from 3 lovely, peaceful, private (our own charming cottage) days spent at Eileen and Kevin's "Bowens" by the Bay! Lovely bright happy flowers surround the grounds, love is truly in every detail and Eileen and Kevin are splendid hosts, helpful, friendly and accommodating in every way. Annabelle and I have found our "perfect" home away from home. "Kudos" Bowens, you are truly one of a kind!

Room Tip: Dogs are welcomed in the cottages. I was thrilled.

This was our first time staying at Bowen's by the Bays and we were not disappointed. Eileen was very gracious and helpful. She recommended several restaurants, even one where we could bring our dog to sit on the deck. Our cottage was very clean, spacious and had so many windows, which was great to let the fresh 'country' air in. We loved having a deck to sit out on and enjoyed our snacks there one afternoon and so did our dog! The grounds are beautifully kept and lovely to walk around. We liked being within walking distance to the town. We will be coming back and have re commended this place.

Located in the Hamptons community with the most waterfront and convenient to water sports, beach visits and many fine restaurants, this delightful place is clean, quite, attractive, and very affordable. A great place for a family week-end or a place to stay when visiting friends or relatives in the area. This is a true asset to the entire Hamptons community.

This is the 7th year my husband and I have gone to Bowen's. Just got home Saturday. It is still the best as far as we are concerned. It is still very clean and comfortable and sooo relaxing. Looking forward to next year. Thank you Eileen, Kevin, Mary and Anastasia.

Room Tip: All the cottages have good bedrooms. We have stayed in a lot of them.
