Joe, Thank you very much for the hospitality.  We enjoyed staying with you.  Your place is beautiful and my daughter enjoyed splitting firewood with you.  The breakfast was delicious too.  Thank you for building us a fire, we enjoyed sitting and talking with you.  We will definitely come back.

Thank you so much for this incredible family like setting for us to stay at while visiting the Red River Gorge.  It was so nice to hear of all the incredible thing you’ve done over the years.  We really enoyed talking with you over breakfast and will definitely have to make another trip down here.  Thanks again.  Alyssa and Caelan   Harodsburg, Kentucky

Thank you for the wonderful weekend at Red River Gorge.  We had a great time hiking and relaxing.  We especially enjoyed our time around the campfire.  Looking forward to our next trip down here.  Thanks again.

Joe, I just had a wonderful, magnificent week with you.  It was fun on the bikes and all, but I think the best part was being by you. You were awesome until you had to go, and I didn’t see you until a few hours.  But I thank you for the great week.

Papa Joe,  It is always fun when we come up to stay with you.  I know I don’t always take things serious but being able to come up here is the best part of life.  Staying up here even for a couple days makes all the other days of my life completely worth it.  And I know you really want this business to take off and I really do think it will.  I know things will work out for you, because when ever you put your mind to something you accomplish it because REAL WINNERS DON’T QUIT.  Love you.

Hardly an “average Joe”.  We felt like old friends the minute we stepped through the door.  The stories and the fellowship made our stay outstanding. Having Jan (Joe’s exchange student from Germany) around made it even better.  Breakfast cooked to order was great.  Thanks Joe for warm hospitality.  P.S.  Make sure you get Joe to take you into the yard for some old fashioned “Lime Throwing”.

Our first visit to the Red River Gorge country was an amazing experience.  We truly enjoyed our three night stay in this unique, cozy, country home.  Danny liked visiting over breakfast and Joe’s fabulous hiking recommendations.  I liked sleeping with the windows open so I could listen to the sounds of nature lulling us to sleep and learning about the history of this home – a true labor of love.  We both especially enjoyed hearing about Joe’s incredible journeys in life.  He has had and continues to lead a remarkable life.Whenever we see a “Share the road sign” we will think of you.  Our feet may be sore but we are leaving feeling rested, reunited with nature’s spectacular beauty and enriched by meeting such an extraordinary person with an unbridled spirit.  Thank you for everything.

Joe, The fact that you opened up your home as a B and B to us pails in the light to the love and warmth that you have given us by allowing us to share in your life.  We are grateful to know such a warm and giving family.

  1. What an amazing experience to have “discovered Joe and his Bowen Farm B&B – truer gems are not to be found. You, and “your little piece of Heaven” have truly touched my heart……and I left feeling my spirit renewed and with my soul singing!! We will be seeing you again, dear Sir…..and I can’t wait.

  2. Joe: Until my visit, spending an evening (or two), I, as for many, could not realize the; beauty of the Eastern Kentucky Foothills and The Red River Gorge … The Spectacular Colors of Fall and The Anticipation I felt during The Springtime is not matched elsewhere.
    Thank you ! Sincerely, for the vision which allowed you the courage and energy to create such a lovely place as The Bowen Farm, Bed and Breakfast. My family will look forward to many future visits and relaxing moments to sit, talk and share the Best of Times …

  3. This is the first time we visit the red river gorge. It has been a great experience. We truly enjoyed these three days hiking, and stayed in Joe’s cozy farm house and discovered amazing stories about Joe and his family history. We love to come back some time in the future. Thank you Joe!
