Every morning we put out Kringle, a Danish pastry that we ship in from Racine, WI, and we have Kuerigs in each guest room for coffee and tea.  Also, in the fully stocked kitchen we supply the food and you cook your own breakfast.  We also have keypad door locks so no keys needed.  We send you your code when you book your reservation and you let yourself in.  Here is a video explaining how to use our keypad door locks.

This is family friendly hotel alternative and you can walk or bike to everything downtown Greenville SC has to offer.  We are set up perfectly for bike touring groups and training camps as well as large gatherings of families, friends or co-workers at the Swamp Rabbit Inn and the Swamp Rabbit Lodge.  Main Street is two blocks to the east and the Swamp Rabbit Trail is two blocks to the west.  Rent the whole house or just a room.

We are set up like a European Inn.  We have two deluxe rooms upstairs (Double Owl and Sheep Rooms) that have private baths and we have two rooms on the main floor (Owl and Moose) that share a ADA accessible bathroom and two rooms on the second floor (Chicken and Goat) that share a hall bathroom.  Perfect for couples, business travelers, get-a-ways, families and groups.
