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.
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.
