Pettigru Place Bed and Breakfast is nestled in the heart of downtown Greenville, South Carolina surrounded by the gracious homes of the Pettigru Historic District. Walking distance to Main Street, Pettigru Place is Southern hospitality at its finest. This historic retreat features beautifully appointed common rooms, six luxurious guest rooms with private baths, and a blooming English garden providing a welcoming retreat just steps from our charming Main Street in Greenville. More than just a hotel, the inn will immediately make you feel right at home as the innkeeper greets you with a smile.
It is just a few blocks to Greenville's award winning Main Street and Falls Park on the Reedy River. Enjoy the old-fashioned and eclectic offerings from Mast General Store, browse the latest fashions at Green Eyed Girls Boutique or Augusta Twenty, or splurge on something sweet from The Chocolate Moose or The Sugar Studio. When you’re ready for a break from shopping stop by Spill the Beans and try one of their many delicious ice cream flavors. Rent bikes for the day to experience the Swamp Rabbit Trail with access via Cleveland Park just 1/4 mile from the inn or at several points downtown. The beautiful, tree-lined Main Street area features shopping, dining at over 60 unique restaurants and several performing arts venues including the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, just two blocks from the inn. Downtown also boasts several galleries and museums, all of which is only a 15 minute walk from Pettigru Place. Allow our inn to be your retreat as you explore Greenville from the unmatched comfort and grace of a true Southern bed and breakfast.
When your day's activities are done, return to the inn for a glass of wine and a plate of cheese and crackers as you relax outside in the Adirondack chairs, in one of our common areas, or your own beautiful room. Each morning, wake to the enticing aroma of a full gourmet breakfast such as Gingerbread Pancakes served with cooked apples and sausage or Banana Bread Pudding followed by Cajun Poached Eggs with Andouille Hollandaise. We promise you won’t leave hungry!
If you are looking for outdoor adventure, Greenville is the doorway to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Upstate area of South Carolina includes some of the most beautiful areas of the state for rest and recreation. You will find hiking and biking trails, minor league baseball, and golf all within 15 minutes of the house. Visit a waterfall and let us give you directions to one of the 20 in the area. Or visit a state park and watch the eagles flying below you (check out this video). Visit one of the area farms such as Happy Cow Creamery for a tour (and ask them why their cows are happier) or drop by our local microbrewery, Thomas Creek Brewery, and try one of their small batch creations. We are minutes away from Furman and Bob Jones Universities, as well as easy driving distance to Clemson University.
Pettigru Place is the perfect place to begin your adventure and we look forward to welcoming you to Greenville and to Pettigru Place!
