About Mark Richmond
My wife and I are Furman grads who lived in Travelers Rest after we graduated and who now enjoy traveling back with our 4 kids. We enjoy spending time with our friends, biking on the Swamp Rabbit trail and mountain biking at near by Paris Mtn State park, or hiking in the near by mountains. We would love for you to come stay at our home away from home.

Beyond what we even expected!
We were in town for a family funeral and made last minute reservations. The owner was super helpful to get us in a little early on our check in and was very timely with responses to our questions. The house was VERY clean and perfect for what we needed. Comfortable beds and a quiet neighborhood made for a great stay
Something isn't right about this listing!
This is my first time writing a bad review on VRBO. When we drove up we were a little worried- the grass looked like it hadn't been mowed in 2 weeks, and the homes immediately surrounding this one looked sketchy (especially with the group partying next door calling out to us as we were trying to get in the house). Bad first impression but SC had a great deal of rain the week before, and we weren't planning to be out in the yard so we were willing to overlook that. HOWEVER the house was so dirty and smelled super musty. The master bedroom and bath reeked of body odor (even the one in the family who doesn't have a sensitive nose thought it smelled bad). The door to get in from the outside was filthy and looked like someone had hacked at it with a screwdriver. There was a red stain on one of the blankets-just grossed us out. The mattresses in the master bedroom and bunk room caved in so badly that it was difficult to fall asleep! One kind of funny thing, is that the toilet in the master bath is so close to the wall that you can't sit on it unless you face sideways. Anyway, we contacted Mark and asked for a refund (which we thought was reasonable because we were willing to pay for the first night we stayed there) and he politely but stubbornly refused. He told us that he sent his people over to verify our issues and they thought it was clean. He did own up to the yard being really bad and said he could get someone out to mow.
We felt fleeced after seeing the good online pics and positive reviews (I actually went back and re-read the reviews and I have no idea how to explain the difference, because the VRBO reviews in the past for us have mostly been spot-on) Also no idea how the pics look so bright and airy.
This trip cost us a lot because we had to book two hotel rooms for the remainder of our stay on top of this rental. It won't kill us, but I guess we expected a more equitable response to the issue. Very disappointing experience!
It is difficult to read such a review of our home that we take great pride in and work hard to keep exceptionally clean and welcoming. We found it very difficult to interact with this guest as they insulted our property and cleaning crew who were still there cleaning when this guest showed up almost 2 hours prior to check in time. After working hard to address concerns and to investigate their claimed issues we were baffled as they continued to add new 'complaints' at every turn when the original complaints proved to be inaccurate. The guest then left without giving us opportunity to meet with them to identify any problems. We still went out of our way to investigate. We had two different individuals we trust come investigate the property since we are out of town. No smell could be found, no stains could be found, the door did have some dirt that seems to have splashed up during the rain, and yes the grass was a bit high from the previous week of rain and was mowed the very next day which was our crew's first available after the previous week of rain. It seemed apparent to us that our guest had had a change of mind or plans and wanted a refund and realized it was well past the window when that was possible and so took a different route. Please see any and all of our other reviews for an accurate portrayal of our home and the very positive experience our other guest have enjoyed.
Great house and priced just right
We enjoyed our stay here! The owner was Accommodating and it was in a great area.
As advertised, bright and comfortable
Comfortable beds and sofas. Well equipped kitchen. Clean and bright. New bathroom and kitchen. Plus TR is a great location for enjoying Greenville and the upstate mountains
Thank you so much! We're glad you enjoyed your time in our home!
We stayed at The Rabbit Burrow while in town for a wedding. It was a perfect location and size for our needs. Mark was super to work with and we would stay here again.
I'm so glad that the house fit your needs so well! We'd be happy to have you back anytime!
Very clean and quiet. We would recommend lamps in the bedrooms for readers. Nice towels and sheets! Very convenient for our family.
