Our room was good sized and well appointed and the bed was comfortable. I was a little concerned about noise as 2 other rooms were occupied, but it was very quiet. Breakfast in the AM was... More

It's not much to look at from the outside, but inside is where you will feel welcomed and at home! We stayed here in May for 3 nights, needed some place convenient to all the events at a wedding in a nearby town. The folks who run this place do a great job, each breakfast was very tasty.

Longing for real Southern hospitality? Billie and David will show you how it's done with warmth and humor that will bring a smile to your face, your tummy and your heart. After returning from an absolutely lovely 6-night stay, we wouldn't even think of going elsewhere in the Seneca-Clemson area.

We recently spent 6 nights at Lowry House. It is a lovely century home that has been filled with beautiful antiques. The more you look the more you see! Fun collections, beautiful lamps and art work. Although the home is old the bathrooms are updated and meticulously clean. Our breakfast included fresh fruit and plenty of protein that kept us... More

The ambience was warm and inviting. No words can describe the breakfast made by Billie. It was a great girls weekend location. Each room was authentically restored and inviting. I loved the front porch and we had several friends over one night and it was a perfect setting for reminiscing.
