About Laura Bowers

My wife and I live in Cumming Ga, about 45 min north of Atlanta. We are raising are 2 young girls there.

I graduated from Western Carolina University in 1999 and have a special place for the area. I love the mountains and the slow pace and would love to raise our family in NC one day. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do.

Laura Bowers purchased this house in 2013

A week on the river

  • 5 of 5

Our fam spent a week in May. Plenty of space and good value for the price. Despite several disappointments, we would definitely return. Although the listing stated gas fireplace,when we woke to 38 degrees, lite rain, first a.m., we found fp only available certain mos. of yr. A fire for an hr or so would have been nice. Also, plan on purchasing lots of drinking/cooking water. Water smells/tastes yuk. Road noise from 107 was rough n early a.m. Walmart has reasonably priced white noise machine. Positives: incredible views, amazingly peaceful river, yes, trout were caught! Deer, turkey, birds, bunnies. Can't wait to go back,

Owner's Response: Hi there, glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to you staying with us again in the future. To address your few disappointments we have added another filter onto our water system and cleared the issue. As for the gas we turn off the pilot light in the spring and summer months to save on energy cost. There are instructions to reignite the pilot light if need be. We do appreciate your feed back so we can make your trip more enjoyable in the future.

Great house. Loved the river, close to Cherokee and we won. Our friends joined us and stayed in the lower level...two homes in one.
