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...

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 &...

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...

Dear Rhona, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Bowen's, and we enjoyed meeting you and Bentley. We do supply each cottage with a toaster but usually store them in a drawer or under the sink to maximize the counter space in the compact kitchen. And in the...

A great place to stay when traveling with a pet without sacrificing comfort,or quality. We were greeted with a welcome bag for us and our dog which made us feel equally valued as those who travel with no pet. Location is convenient to the beach, restaurants and shopping,there is a grocery directly across the street so if renting a cottage...

Having been given the green light at the last moment to go to the Hamptons, I called several places seeking accommodations for approximately 10 days. The only property available was Bowen’s.

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
