About Wendy Lynam

My name is Wendy and I own several rental properties around Greenville SC including the Swamp Rabbit Inn #596004 in downtown Greenville's historic West End. I love welcoming visitors to Greenville and helping them get the most out of their stay.

I moved to Greenville from Chicago in 2005 and love living here! I am an avid cyclist and love hiking too.

I am a licensed real estate agent and can help you if you are considering a move to the area.

Wendy Lynam purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Wendy Lynam chose Upcountry

If you have an event at Furman University or want a great launch pad for cycling, hiking, mountain biking and riding the Swamp Rabbit Trail or enjoying all that Travelers Rest has to offer then this is your spot! We are at the base of Paris Mountain at the end of a quiet street and .5 miles from the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Downtown Greenville SC is just a 15 minute drive up the road and Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville, NC are great day trips.

What makes this cottage unique

Hot tub, gas fire place, easy access to Swamp Rabbit Trail and Paris Mountain and Furman University. Bike the trail to Travelers Rest for lunch, Farmers Market, outdoor concerts at Trailblazer Park or Furman University. Quiet setting.

Very nice stay for graduation weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house - it was clean, open floorplan, good furniture, well stocked kitchen, and had a nice deck. We didn't use the hottub but it was inviting! Beds were comfortable, heat worked well and the fireplace was awesome (we had unusual cold nights for May!!!). Easy to find, close to Furman, and big enough driveway to park several cars. We will come back!

Great for a Group Stay

  • 4 of 5

7 of us for 4 night visit...basketball games in Greenvile for us guys...so the cottage was an excellent alternative to hotel room prices...The cottage is nice base of operations ...sleeping in queen sized bunk beds brought us back to the college days...accommodations fit our needs...we cooked our own breakfasts...and dined in Greenviille...The city has a lot to offer, very clean, easily walkable, affordable parking ... Some of the group played a round of golf at Furman course and running/ walking was a very short distance from the front door...The exterior and deck could use some updating and cleanup but sufficient for what we needed...overall very happy we stayed here...

Excellent Property, owner easy to communicate with

  • 5 of 5

Nova Scotia Cycling Team stayed here for 9 days in February. I missed out on booking the larger property next door, and was mildly concerned this place would be to small for our group (6 males, 2 females, 2 coaches). It was more than adequate for us. The main bedroom was excellent for the boys and has queen bunk beds which as a nice touch. Wendy provided an extra mattresses to add to the single room to make a female room, and 1 more in the "den" to form the coaches room. This was greatly appreciated. The house is easily large enough for 10 people, and the entry way area (basically a room) was perfect for bike storage. The house is in great shape and has all you would need for your stay. Wendy was very easy to communicate with. Any issues we had she sent someone over right away to take care of it. Bonus points for the "grawler" she leaves in the kitchen which can be taken up to the local brewery and refilled. That put smiles on our face.

If your cycling in the area, this house is the perfect home base. Quite roads, Caesars head is 1 hr ride away, and terrain is generally rolling, tons of ride options. Several groceries stores are all within 5 minute drive, and the drive from Atlanta airport was about 2hrs 20mins.

Highly recommend , we will be returning.

Nice place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The Furman Cottage is large and clean and can really sleep more than ten. It's isolated enough to make you feel out in the country but centrally located near multiple grocery stores and conveniences. I think it's an excellent place for large groups and family's with kids. We loved the hot tub and the car port was handy. Also of note... The neighbors were far enough away not to be easily disturbed by us.

If I visit the area with a large group in the future I am sure I will be checking the cottage's availability.

Had our Thanksgiving there this year with 9 in our group +a few local family members and had plenty of space. Wendy was very responsive and the house was as well stocked as could be expected. Location was perfect with easy access to Greenville and the mountains..

Great place to enjoy all the outdoor activities the Upstate of SC has to offer. At the base of the foothills the cottage is just outside of Furman University's north gate and a 3 miles from downtown Travelers Rest this cozy cottage just .5 miles from the 18 mile paved Swamp Rabbit Bike/Run/Walk Trail, minutes from the quaint town of Travelers Rest and a 15 minute drive to downtown Greenville SC. Paris Mountain State Park is just a quick drive or cycle up the road. This is a great launch pad for many of the Upstate's finest cycling routes. Hiking at Ceasars Head, Table Rock and Jones Gap State Parks, kayaking and bouldering too. Great mountain biking at Paris Mountain and DuPont Forest just 45 minutes up the road. Easy access to Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville, NC mountain towns.
