NEW EUROPEAN-STYLE BIKE FRIENDLY INN OPENS IN DOWNTOWN GREENVILLE, S.C.
Greenville, S.C. (July 24, 2014) – After its opening last month, Greenville local Wendy Lynam’s Swamp Rabbit Inn is already drawing both locals and visitors to Greenville’s historic West End. The Swamp Rabbit Inn is a small European-style inn located in the heart of downtown. Located at 1 Logan Street, The Swamp Rabbit Inn features six guest rooms, a common kitchen, and community gathering spaces indoors and out. Appointed entirely with IKEA furniture, the inn provides refreshingly funky ambiance and design.
“As Greenville’s vibrant cycling community contiunes to grow and gain national attention, we felt something was missing,” said Lynam, a longtime cycling enthusiast and entrepreneur. “What we have created is a haven for cyclists and visitors with a modern active lifestyle twist. This is not your grandmother’s B & B.”
The two-story Inn sits in a historic area just a few steps from Main Street and only two blocks from the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail, a 17+ mile paved bike trail. It is also within walking distance of Fluor Field, The Kroc Center, wedding venues, and many of Greenville’s shops and nationally recognized restaurants.
“We’re going for a cozy and communal feel, with the comfy bedrooms and inviting outdoor spaces,” said Lynam. “To our delight, several visitors have already booked the entire house for upcoming weddings, team sports events, girl’s weekends, corporate retreats and family gatherings.”
Only open a month, the inn has already housed a group of cyclists for the “Cycle To Farm” tour and visitors, including a visit from Super Model Kiara Kabukaru, as well as a stay by Food Network’s “harshest critic” and Iron Chef and Cutthroat Kitchen judge, Simon Majumdar.
“That was the most comfortable bed I’ve slept on in a long time while traveling,” said Majumdar.
With a flawless rating on TripAdvisor, visitors indicate they will be coming back. One review called the Inn “a very special place indeed,” going on to describe the stay as “just magical.” “It’s a cyclist’s dream,” wrote another happy visitor.
Lynam continues her work to ensure The Swamp Rabbit Inn successfully embodies and expresses the essence of Greenville. “Cycling is a passion of mine and this is the place to do it on all levels,” she said. “Greenville is a cosmopolitan Southern town and we want to help visitors make the most out of their stay.”
Along with lodging, the inn features a bike shed outfitted with eight city bikes for rent and offers ride-up maintenance for cyclists from bike mechanic and inn manager Robin Rouselle (a.k.a. “R2”).
The Inn is also adorned with paintings from muralist and cyclist Kathleen King , who was invited to the Upstate to bring public art to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Her first project, sponsored by the Daniel Mickel Foundation, is a mural titled “Tortoise Has a Spare” on the wall of TTR Bikes at the Swamp Rabbit Green.
