The SpaceThe two-story farmhouse is situated on a small working farm. The house includes a fully equipped kitchen with new countertops and modern appliances. A large dining room, a cozy living room with electric fireplace, the bathroom and laundry area are on the first floor. Upstairs features two bedrooms each with queen beds and one bedroom with two twin beds. A sofa bed in the living room provides extra sleeping space. All linens are provided for your stay.

Guest AccessThe Bowman House has a private driveway and parking area. Guests have access to the house and grounds immediately around the house. Access to buildings other than The Bowman House is by prior arrangement only, and only when accompanied by one of the owners. Due to the fact that the house is on a working farm with animals, pets cannot be accommodated. Tobacco use of any kind is strictly prohibited on the grounds or in the house. Interaction with GuestsKent and Paula live on the farm. Depending on the season guests can be included in activities on the farm if desired. When Kent and Paula have time they enjoy sharing locavore meals with their guests. Big Oak Ridge offers a variety of seminars throughout the year on topics pertaining to sustainable food production. Guests are welcome to participate in seminars (some may have a nominal fee.) Kent and Paula love hiking, biking and kayaking; if time permits, we would be happy to show you some of our favorite spots. The NeighborhoodNeighborhood is very rural (dirt road) but just 15 minutes (6 miles) from town. Franklin has about 8,000 residents and is situated on the confluence of French Creek and the Allegheny River. Franklin is a stop on the Erie to Pittsburgh bike trail. Venango County is the birthplace of the Oil industry and is rich in history. Hiking, biking, kayaking opportunities abound. Hunting access is nearby on State Game Lands. Getting AroundArea is rural with no public transportation. Rental cars are available. We are 1.5 hours from Erie Airport, 2 hours from Pittsburgh Airport, 2.5 hours from Cleveland Airport. We are one hour from the Ohio border, close to I-79 and I-80, SR 322, SR 8, and SR 62 - all popular through-ways when traveling across Pennsylvania. Other Things to NoteThe Bowman House currently has window air conditioning in two bedrooms and the two main rooms on the first floor, which is adequate to keep the whole house comfortable. Winter heating is via a gas forced air furnace. The house sits close to the road, but it is a very rural road with little traffic. The road is maintained in the winter but winter weather can influence ease of travel. Be adventurous! Cell phone coverage is "spotty" at the farm but WiFi access is provided. Big Oak Ridge is a working farm, and The Bowman House sits right in the middle of the farm. Wildlife is abundant including owls that screech, coyotes that sing, bobcats that scream, deer that snort, crickets and tree frogs that chirp.
