“the best breakfast yet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I have had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the Bowman House many time while visiting my family in the area. Staying with Murphey and Alice is always wonderful, the house is warm and welcoming, the food delicious, and the hosts spectacular.

Alice always manages to amaze me with new delights for breakfast. The popovers and broiled grapefruit this trip were not to be missed!

I would recommend the Bowmen House, without reservation, to anyone staying in the area!

Room Tip: all room are wonderful!

We've stayed at the EJ Bowman House each of the past 11 years... at twice a year on occasion. It's always, always, always wonderful. The attention to detail is fantastic, from helping with reservations, snacks in the afternoon, heated bathroom floors, and excellent breakfasts to homemade cookies waiting to be eaten, all manner of hot beverages and MORE. To say that Alice is an excellent cook would be an understatement. We would HIGHLY recommend the EJ Bowman house to anyone looking to be pampered, well-fed, and relaxed (and it isn't expensive either!).

Our stay at the EJ Bowman house was very pleasant. The hosts are welcoming and very knowledgable about the area. We were even ask to invite a friend of ours staying locally to have breakfast with us. I would recommend this relaxing, well appointed B&B highly.

Murphy and Alice have not forgotten anything that one would like to have while traveling. Our room was decorated very nicely, the bed was most comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. My husband commented on the hand soap!!
The breakfast was a feast. I am not a breakfast person, do not eat most breakfast foods and Alice and Murphy were most accommodating.
I appreciated that Murphy took the time to help us decide on a restaurant for dinner and to recommend various roads to follow to experience the beautiful countryside.
Deciding to stay in EJ Bowman House is a great choice.

The EJ Bowman house and room accommodations were great and the hospitality shown was greater. My daughter and I enjoyed the home (very clean and inviting) and all of its extras such as the sitting room and the garden. The food was excellent thanks to a great chef. The hostesses topped it off by being warm and caring, and informative about the area. The conversations around the breakfast table and other times were great. I highly recommend staying in this home away from home.
