I was taken back to my favorite movie Dirty Dancing. The cottage was immaculately clean. I know because I did not use any of my Benadryls. The welcome package was thoughtful and sweet. I felt transferred to another time. Bummer that they close up on...More

I loved Bowen's by the Bays. You get an awesome welcome bag with treats and a map. The room is charming and very clean, it is quiet and you are 15 minutes from the Hamptons without paying the ridiculous Hamptons hotel prices. I highly recommend...More

You get exactly what you expect here. It's a lovely little cottage, not a 5 star resort or mansion in the Hamptons for bougie folks. The pool served me well, the children's area was great for my lil kid, we spent every night in the...More

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, More 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. Less
