In 2014, Wendy Lynam opened the first Swamp Rabbit Inn in downtown Greenville at 1 Logan Street catering to visitors and business travelers looking for an affordable, more relaxed alternative to a hotel. She has since added five more vacation rentals along the trail and the former Magnolia Inn will be the sixth in the collection of fresh and funky, IKEA adorned properties. “Many of our guests come here to cycle and explore the area’s beautiful outdoor amenities by day and all the great restaurant and entertainment options by night. I have set up the properties to appeal to cyclists coming to enjoy our fabulous 21 mile Swamp Rabbit Trail the gateway to some of the best cycling in the Country.”
