Hello from Doug and Jenny Bowman

  • Jenny and Doug on top of Chimney Rock

Hi! So glad to meet you!  We're the Bowmans and we have owned and opperated The Red Rocker Inn for over nine years. It's a family business and all five of our children have worked or are working here with us. Our third child, Kaylea, is our chef. After a 24 year career in church camp ministry, we find we love innkeeping just as well. We hope we'll be seeing you soon!

Here's the whole family, inluding a couple of the dogs. Andrew and his wife Megan live in Richmond Virginia while he attends Union Theological Seminary. Krista is currently our evening restaurant manager. Kaylea lives a few miles away and is our chef. Keri is a recent college graduate and works and lives in Knoxville. And Kassidy is a college sophomore majoring in biology. Doug and Jenny are finally empty-nesters after raising children for 32 years!

  • Glenn loves Kaylea

Chef Kaylea has worked in the kitchen at Church Camp and now at Red Rocker Inn since she was 15. After completing her Culinary Arts training, she became our Chef in 2013. When she's not whipping up something wonderful in the kitchen she loves to hike, garden, sew and spend time with her brand-new husband, Glenn.

  • Krista

You'll also meet Krista, our daughter and evening restaurant manager. 

  • Doug at Pearl Harbor

In our free time, we love to travel. Here's Doug at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

  • Jenny loves Doug

And when there isn't as much time off, free time usually involves hiking and a picnic.
