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 Greenville

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.

Great home, great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house for the third year during our summer vacation. Nice, clean home. The location is the best part -- right near the SRT so great for biking. Also right next door to Furman Univ, where our son did a mountain bike camp. We rode him down the SRT each morning on our bikes. Highly recommend this place.

A Perfect Respite

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I came to Travelers Rest for two weeks and loved staying at the Furman Cottage. The proximity to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, Furman, and Greenville were perfect. The house was spacious and comfortable. It would be a great place for a large group but it was equally nice for the two of us. Even though it was summer, we enjoyed the gas fireplace in the early mornings and evenings. And my husband couldn't get enough of the hot tub. The huge TV in the living room and the wi-fi were fantastic. As were all the kitchen dishes and cookware. The house is showing some age and it hasn't been kept up all that well. But it was clean upon our arrival which helped. We would stay here again.

Great place to stay in Greenville with large family or group!

  • 4 of 5

This was a pleasant surprise since we have tried some cottages in this price range in other cities and been very disappointed, especially in the cleanliness department. However this house was super clean and generous space, nice clean sheets, fully stocked kitchen, wonderful. The only thing I noticed that may be a negative to some that highly value privacy, there is a camera in the living room/kitchen running all the time which could make some people uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the camera, guests can turn it off while the house is occupied and I assure you we do not monitor it. It is only there for security purposes when the house is unoccupied. We repect the privacy of our guests. Thanks again for staying with us!

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 games in Greenvile for us 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...
