The Swamp Rabbit Inn and Properties has two inns, one in downtown Greenville, SC and one in downtown Travelers Rest, SC, close to Furman University and at the base of some of the best road cycling and mountain biking in the Upstate of South Carolina.
The Swamp Rabbit Trail is a 20+ mile paved greenway trail connecting Greenville, SC to Travelers Rest, SC. It is mostly flat and perfect for all levels of cyclists.

Greenville is a cycling town, there’s no denying that. The integration of bike lanes into new road projects, pump tracks and new mountain bike trails being added to parks, and the ever-expanding Swamp Rabbit Trail has all lent a hand to the boom of bikes in this city.
The close proximity to the Swamp Rabbit Trail (SRT) from the Swamp Rabbit Inn has had many out-of-town guests clamoring for a bike to use while they’re staying. Our solution? The Bike Shed at Swamp Rabbit Inn: a small spot behind the Inn full of vintage treasures, local tees by the folks at Greenville Goods, cold and hot beverages, and bike rentals for locals and guests alike. For $15 a half day or $25 for the whole day, this includes a lock and a helmet (safety is sexy y’all). Our Bike Shed Manager, Lisa, is happy to give you pointers on where to go, or buy a Cycling Greenville Guidebook for your return travels.

Join us every second Tuesday of the month (May – October) from 6:00 – 9:00 in the parking lot of the Swamp Rabbit Inn, 1 Logan Street, Greenville, SC 29601 (West End downtown Greenville). We have a food truck, live music, local makers, and locals and visitors alike mingle and make friends in this hip and trendy neighborhood in Greenville’s West End. Everyone is invited to our weekly Block Party running every second Tuesday night May – October, 2016.
It’s safe to say that Truck INN Tuesdays is now a summer staple at the Swamp Rabbit Inn in downtown Greenville. If you haven’t experienced one yet, you should for a few reasons. #1- Greenville is an amazing place with loads of fun activities and music, but they primarily cluster around the Friday, Saturday, Sunday portion of the week. Truck INN Tuesdays happen on, well, you’re smart folks. #2- the growth of Greenville is happening rapidly but the West End lacks an abundance of food options; not only do we offer Food Truck snacks and dinners, but many local food makers, and King of Pops make it an all encompassing epicourian experience. #3- The West End in general is on the cusp of revitalization and expansion. It’s a great part of town to walk or ride your bicycle to explore what this great southern city has to offer.
Bring your friends!!
April 19th-25th brings all things craft beer to the forefront of Greenville’s mind.

There’s also an April 24th event at our favorite spot in downtown Traveler’s Rest at the Swamp Rabbit Brewery, situated a few short bike-able trail miles from the Swamp Rabbit Lodge. The Swamp Rabbit Inn currently has rooms available for the weekday events, and most are in walkable or bike-able distance in and around downtown Greenville, SC.
