Frolic and Play the Falls Park Way!


" ...Walking in a,  er,  spring-ish?, Wonderland! "

Take my coat, please!  I spent all of November cultivating this thick, glorious tweed and now I wish it had buttons!  It's much too heavy for 70+ degrees.  But, boy what a nice weekend we had!


We all know by now that the weather went wacky all across America this past week and  made for a surreal holiday that no one will soon forget.  So I gathered some sights of the ways we handled the phenomenon here in Greenville.


While alarming reports of tornados and floods swirled around us, we worried for our neighbors, but the rains fell warm and soft upon the Upstate. 


On Christmas eve, while the West Coast was snuggled in and freezing, we strolled the West End enjoying balmy breezes! 


Christmas day was blustery but mild as midmorning streets filled with the sound of children happily playing in shorts and Ts. 


Boxing Day was for bronzing!  Acres of exposed flesh came out to soak up the sun.  Traffic on the Swamp Rabbit Trail started early as cyclists fanned out across the county to get in the sunshiny miles.


Hearts were light and smiles plentiful as Greenvillians frolicked in Falls Park.



Air conditioners were blasting in the shops and the Inn was no exception.  Our guests had a bit of confusion for a moment getting the control panel to switch the mode to “cool”, but the staff soon got it sorted.  I watched as the young family set off from the driveway with stroller and sandals to explore our Downtown on foot on a blissfully perfect day.


The attendants squeegeeing the ice at the outdoor rink, Ice on Main, were doing their level best to keep things smooth, but frankly, it was getting a little slushy.


The beginners class was toughing it out, but as you can see by the boy in the background hanging from the railing, there was a lot of slippin' and slidin'!


Rainbows, unicorns and a high of 75º in #yeahTHATgreenville!  We've got it all!


A glance at the forecast shows that Twenty Sixteen promises to debut with a return to our regular winter programming.  But wow!  What a great respite to find under the tree!



We're Only as Cool as our Guests Who Stay At This Greenville, SC Bed and Breakfast - Which Means We're Really Cool!


What makes a house a home?  What makes a hotel memorable, unique, a home away from home?  You would probably say a lot of the same things for both.  First of all, one needs to feel at ease, comfortable, welcome.  Next on the list, for most, would include feeling appreciated and valued.  Last but not least, most of us want to be in an aesthetically pleasing setting that sets a tone of style and fun.  The Swamp Rabbit Inn accomplishes all these goals by providing an environment that is both calm and energizing, casual and bright, and squeaky clean with an air of contemporary European design.  The spaces are open, warm and full of light, just like our staff and the combination encourages guests to make themselves at home and enjoy their stay in their own way.  We love the people who choose to stay at this Greenville, SC bed and breakfast!


Which brings us to the real secret of our success:  our guests!  We simply have the coolest guests ever!  So far in our short history we have had the pleasure of  hosting an eclectic mix of fun and tremendously Inn-teresting people!  From the many local groups who use the Inn as a hub for meetings or a venue for day long events to the visitors from far and wide, around the globe who come to Greenville for business, pleasure or both, to the wedding parties, families, companies, teams and organizations who take over the whole place for a night, weekend or longer, all have added their character to the ‘house’ and contribute to its unique identity and presence as a West End urban gem.  Add to that our own events: Truck Inn Tuesdays, Hoptoberfest, Tuesday Morning Latte Rides, Holiday Hoppenings,... and the result is a hum of activity that represents the best of Greenville. 


We've met chefs and playwrights, cyclists and journalists, Googlers and musicians, activists and entrepreneurs, CEOs, developers and students.  Below is a sampling of the vibrant folks who have passed through our doors since they opened less than two whirlwind years ago.
