Merry Christmas From Wendy Lynam, Owner of the Swamp Rabbit Inn

Many of you have stayed with us at the inn over the years, some of you are local and attend our events or have rented bikes from us, some of you may just follow what we do from a distance and we have not met in real life.  To all of you with whom we have connected, we wish you a Merry Christmas and peace and joy this holiday season.

Thank you for your support!  The Swamp Rabbit Inn has been one of my life's greatest gifts.  It has brought so many interesting people and experiences into my life.  I am very grateful to have this opportunity to say thank you to all of you,  and to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

3 Events You Can't Miss When Visiting Greenville, SC

We're in the thick of things- summer is sultry, the kids are out of school, vacations are coming and going. Greenville is a beautiful town year round don't get us wrong, but our favorite time of year has to be the early fall. Not only does the weather begin to cool and the leaves change, but Greenville becomes host to 3 of the most spectacular events: Euphoria Greenville, Indie Craft Parade, and Fall for Greenville. And we LOVE a good event (#truckINNtuesdays).

Euphoria Greenville is celebrating its 10th year! Taking place from September 17-20, it's the perfect September weather to take in all that downtown has to offer in one place. "Founded in 2006 by platinum-selling singer and songwriter Edwin McCain and restaurateur Carl Sobocinski, euphoria educates, entices, enlightens, and entertains. This highly anticipated weekend-long event includes exclusive tasting events, cooking demonstrations and wine seminars, as well as multi-course dinners and live musical performances. Dedicated to excellence, euphoria features domestic and international wines, celebrity chefs, master sommeliers, and national recording artists."

The Swamp Rabbit Inn is located, well, a quick hop away from the epicenter of this event and is sure to fill up quickly. Check out our Reservations Page to reserve a room or the entire Inn for the weekend.

Maybe the outdoor music and food scene isn't your thing? Maybe local and regional crafters and makers just scratch that Pinterest itch for you. The Indie Craft Parade has called Greenville home for a few years now, and as all hot events, the competition has become fierce to be granted a vendor entry. Each maker must submit an entry to be judged by a panel so know that only the coolest, most fun and amazing hand-made goods are present at this event. Located at the impressive Huguenot Mill on West Broad in downtown Greenville, the event takes place September 18-20. We recommend the VIP tickets because it's just that awesome.

The big daddy: Fall for Greenville. If you love all things Greenville, food, music, locals, outdoors, and general good times, this is your event. This event takes over nearly all of Main St and runs all the way over the Reedy River in the West End. This is one of the largest, if the not the largest attended events in all of South Carolina. Our restaurants take to the streets, setting up booths to sample food, drinks, and snacks. Music lineups vary depending on the time and day but usually ends with a bang!

Events Happening at Swamp Rabbit Lodge

The Swamp Rabbit Lodge is quickly becoming a hotspot of activity, especially for our athletically-inclined guests. Just last week we were privileged to have TriMarni hold their triatholon camp at the Lodge.  Here's what they had to say: "Our first Greenville Trimarni camp is now complete!! Blog recap posts to come..... We knew our campers would be exhausted on day 4 but we didn't take it easy onthem. 

We started with a recon ride of our run course and then a climb up and down Paris Mountain followed by a very technical course before repeating the climb up to Paris Mountain one more time with a very strong effort. ~3600 feet of climbing. After the ride, a quick transition to our 7-mile run. ~950 feet of climbing on a beautiful hilly course with a "best effort" up Roe Ford road to finish off camp.

What an amazing group of athletes who gave 100% for every workout at camp. We are all exhausted, hungry and extremely sore.......Trimarni Greenville camp was a great success! Karel and I can't wait to plan our next Greenville camp!!

Thank you to our amazing photographers Taylor and Elizabeth and to Tricia and Taylor for providing the BEST SAG Support throughout our camp. We were well hydrated and fueled thanks to them!

Thank you Trimarni camp sponsors: Run In Veronica's Health Crunch Clif Bar TrainingPeaks Canari Cyclewear

And thank you Swamp Rabbit Lodge for providing the perfect place for our campers to stay!"

We're also excited to announce Velo Girl Rides First Annual Upstate SC Tour. This is currently open to the public and is held at the Swamp Rabbit Lodge from October 21-25. Enjoy great accommodations, fully sagged and support ride, and fun camaraderie with fellow cyclists. It's sure to fill quickly so reserve your space today.

Artisphere Weekend

As the spring months beckon every local to rush to finish work to get outside and enjoy the weather, downtown Greenville, SC primes the streets with festivals, shows, concerts, and outdoor events almost daily. That's the great thing about this city- it prides itself on natural and enhanced beauty to lure even the most indoor-worthy person to places like Paris Mountain State Park, the Swamp Rabbit Trail, Falls Park, and The Greenville Saturday Farmer's Market. This weekend is no exception: Artisphere 2015 begins today and runs through Sunday. Main Street will be packed full of various artists, music, food, and drink. If you can't find something that catches your eye, you aren't looking hard enough.

The Swamp Rabbit Inn is located a few short blocks from the heart of Artisphere. We happily accommodate artists, makers, locals, and tourists, cyclist, walkers, runners, and families. We bring together people from all over the word, from all over the country, from all over the region, and all over the state. We foster the community that surrounds this house because we love what Greenville, SC has become and what it will be in the future.

Happy weekend!
