Swamp Rabbit Cottage, Steps From Bike Trail

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,000 sq ft
Property type house


About the property

Little red roof cottage. Hop on bike trail and go!

The Swamp Rabbit Cottage is a one bedroom mill house just a mile out of downtown Greenville. Perfect location for hopping on the Swamp Rabbit Trail, an 18 mile paved bike trail and gateway to some of Greenville's finest cycling. Just a mile up the trail in one direction is downtown Greenville, and in the other direction, the trendy Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery with locally grown produce and goods. Keep heading north on the trail and you will pass Furman University and on to the quaint town of Travelers Rest with restaurants, shops and a micro brewery.

This is a great location for cyclists, budget conscious travelers, relocating, CoWork, and we are a good option for a short term furnished apartment. Swamp Rabbit Crossfit is just steps away too! #bikeinnbikeout

About Wendy Lynam

I specialize in short term rentals and vacation rentals along the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville SC. I am an avid cyclist and want to give other cyclists/travelers good, affordable accommodations. Our properties are great for gatherings, weddings, bike trips, girl's weekends and corporate travel.

Looking to relocate to Greenville? I am a licensed real estate agent and real estate investor and would be happy to help you with your search. Call or email me if you would like to work with me to find a great property.

Why Wendy Lynam chose Greenville

I love mill houses and this is where the urban sprawl is headed plus it is just steps from The Swamp Rabbit Trail. The City of Greenville has a master plan for a central park near this property, much like our award winning Falls Park, planned to start in the next five years. This is one area to watch and has easy access to the City a mile away.

What makes this house unique

Close to bike trail. Furnished entirely in IKEA. Newly remodeled inside and out. CPI security system. Please let us know if you would like to rent a bike during your stay by emailing us at swamprabbitinn@ #bikeinnbikeout

Our Enjoyable Visit To Greenville

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the Swamp Rabbit Cottage very much after we finally found it. It took and extra hour and several phone calls to the owner to find the right street. Willard street does not have a street sign at the corner it is down the street a ways so all we saw was the speed limit sign. Very confusing. It needs a flag on the corner or a real sign. We liked the fact the bike trail was just around the corner and we used it about every day.

The house was cute but would be better and easier to clean if the floors were sanded and painted they were very uneven.

We spent one very cold night and most of a day because of no heat, the owner did have it repaired but it took most of the day.

The location mad It easy to get into town to do things. We would stay there again if in the area.

This was a great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for some down time and to get to know Greenville a little bit. We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and modern. We ended up cooking our Thanksgiving meal and had no problems finding what we needed in the kitchen. This place is just a stones throw away from downtown but the surrounding were peaceful.

Very sketchy neighborhood

  • 1 of 5

Although the little house was freshly renovated, the neighborhood was awful. There was virtually no toilet paper, and no backup, another reason this property doesn't rate well. The neighborhhod was so bad, we were afraid to even leave the car unattended as we carried in our bags. Not for the faint of heart, nor for anyone who needs more than a single visit to the restroom.

Swamp Rabbit Cottage Review

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and tidy. I stayed for 2 nights and the train kept passing by and was loud. It was hard to sleep at night and I would not go out to walk at night, either. The neighborhood is run down and it would fare better to be in a safer neighborhood.

Cute house but noisy in a questionable area.

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. It is a cute older house that has been renovated with a modern European flair ( think IKEA). The kitchen is well stocked and everything clean and thoughtfully set up. It would be an ideal rental in a different location. The problem is the neighborhood and the railroad. The house is right across the street from the railway and trains run all day and night. It is loud. The neighborhood is a little scary and we would not feel safe going out at night for a walk etc. I would not rent again for this reason. Also, the house next door has a loud and annoying dog that barked when we went out to sit on the back porch...which overlooks an open green area. I had no other complaints. I read another review that brought up these concerns and they were right on. Greenville is an awesome town and we will be returning as our son just relocated here...but this is not the home away from home we were looking for.
