Inman house description

Just what you’re looking for if you want a fantastic vacation at the Lake! This home has sleeping accommodations for 8-10 people. We privately own and manage it; you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the peacefulness and serenity this home provides. Located on beautiful Lake Bowen in Spartanburg, SC, we are easily accessible from I-26 and conveniently located to Greenville, SC. If that’s not enough, we are only one hour from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Woodfin Ridge Golf Course is a short 10 minute drive away, and you will catch glimpses of the lake from the golf course.

For snowbirds looking for a get-away retreat: We have two gas log fireplaces, each of which are next to 8 foot sliding glass doors that overlook the lake. The Spartanburg/Greenville area has many attractions close by; great restaurants, three Malls in less than a 30 minute radius, movie theatres, Sams Club, WalMart only 8 minutes away, Ingles Grocery only 6 minutes away.


Living Space: The upstairs living area boasts two leather couches to provide comfort while you enjoy your favorite shows on a 50” flat screen TV. The living room also has a gas fireplace for your winter time visits. The kids can enjoy games on the PlayStation2 game system, with a variety of games provided. Or you can pop in a DVD movie (many family oriented movies provided) while you enjoy popcorn and snacks. Bring your laptop, because we provide hi-speed wireless Internet access for your convenience.

Ready to eat?: Cooking dinner on our four burner outdoor grill will be a treat! A fully equipped kitchen also allows you to cook almost any meal you desire. While the kitchen is limited in size, the areas for dining are expansive. The front porch provides a 6 person table and chairs; the screened-in side porch provides a 6 person table and chairs; the indoor dining room also provides a 6 person table and chairs. And for your little ones, we even provide a High Chair, along with a booster chair for your toddler. The downstairs includes a mini-kitchen with a small range and full-size frig.

Our home is No Smoking, No Pets.

Downstairs Living Space: The downstairs area is one that your kids are sure to love; our game room provides an Air Hockey table and a foosball table. Rainy day? No problem! Spend the day playing Scrabble, Sorry, Monopoly, the Playstation or one of many other games provided. And if someone in the group would rather spend the afternoon with a good book, we have approximately 40 books available for your reading pleasure during your stay. The downstairs living room is my Mom’s favorite room. In addition to being cozy with the gas fireplace, it has a quiet, serene feeling as you sit in the Rocking Chair and gaze at the lake. Actually, my Dad loves to sleep on the couch, while my Mom reads.

You can pack lighter because we provide the washer & dryer.

One week stay preferred for June, July, August, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We will take reservations for less than one week 21 days out. Minimum 3 night stay.

              Lake Bowen Landing

              Lake Bowen is conveniently located to Spartanburg, Greenville, and Asheville, NC. You can drive to the Bele Chere Street Festival in Asheville, and return after a long, fun day to your relaxing lakeside home.

              Waterfalls are in abundance in this region, and most can be reached in less than one hour drive. Ceasars Head is very close by, and has incredible views. City Range is our favorite upscale restaurant and is conveniently located 25 minutes away. Our teenagers love that the Mall and theatre-seating movie theatre is only 20 minutes away! Other malls and shopping venues are only 40 minutes away in Greenville.

              Speaking of Greenville, the downtown area is awesome! You can grab a Starbucks and stroll along the river, or sit on a park bench and enjoy people-watching.

              The closest Starbucks is on Pine Street in Spartanburg, about 20 minutes from our house.

              The local Fish Camp is a 5 minute drive and is our favorite local joint. Totally unhealthy, cheap, and incredibly good.

              Golf: Lake Bowen is visible from Woodfin Ridge Golf Course; it is a 10 minute drive to course. Bring your golf friends and relax in our home after a beautiful day of golf.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: We have four children, who are the center of our lives!

              Why the Owner Chose Inman:
              The calm, relaxing, peaceful feeling of this home had us sold before we even viewed the downstairs. Our main goal when purchasing this property was to create more family time with our children and our extended family. It is so close to many fun attractions. When the children were younger, they loved HollyWild. Now, we spend more time at the mall and the $2.50 movie theatre close by :-) We are still able drive to Church in Asheville on Sunday morning. We love the neighborhood, and have found our neighbors to be wonderful people. I'm a Seminar Speaker, on the road most of the time. You'll find everything you need in this house, because we live here when we're not traveling.
