Travelers Rest cottage description

Travelers Rest is a sleepy little town at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in South Carolina. Its name comes fromtravelers from Low Country Plantations on the coast of South Carolina escaping the hot temperatures and mosquitoes in the 1800's. On the way to the cool mountains of South Carolina, they would stop to water their horses and spend the night, hence the name Travelers Rest.
426 S. Main St

Travelers Rest has undergone a quaint transformation to a pedestrian, shop lined Main St which parallels the walk bike path, the Swamp Rabbit Trail, which links Travelers Rest to downtown Greenville, SC (8 miles) and passes through beautiful Furman University on the way.
