About Ed Bowe / Rose Mary Bowe

Rose Mary and I live in Homestead, FL but enjoy spending time in the mountains of N.C.

Ed Bowe / Rose Mary Bowe purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Ed Bowe / Rose Mary Bowe chose Murphy

Our house provides a very comfortable and spacious living area. The property setting is very pretty with foliage and a porch that allows you to sit and relax outdoors.

What makes this chalet unique

Murphy, N.C. is ideally situated so that there are many outdoor activities within 1 hour drive and close to Chattanooga, TN or Atlanta, GA, if you want big city activities.

It was an amazing place to stay at!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect house to stay in especially with 7 people vacationing in it for a week. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms to share and the space in the house was great. The one thing we had a slight issue with was the water heater. We believe it had a timer on it, so it wouldn’t heat up all the time. Besides that, everything was amazing!!

Beautiful, clean cabin and such an amazing deck!

  • 5 of 5

We especially loved the enormous deck and gas grill! It makes cooking out so much easier than charcoal grilling. Our entire family had a very nice vacation. Thanks so much for sharing your mountain home with us!

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I could not be more pleased with our stay here. My wish was for some time in the mountains to get some work done, and to spend Thanksgiving with dear friends. This place exceeded expectations. The cabin is very well maintained and had everything we needed, and more. The view is spectacular and it makes you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere, but it's also convenient to get to stores for supplies. Thank you so much Ed and Rosemary!
