Town Guide

Travelers Rest is more than a little stopping point along the way to somewhere more important. In fact, it’s become a destination all its own.

It’s a growing, vibrant town with a revitalized downtown and a growing economy, which includes a thriving food scene. Travelers Rest’s boom in growth is thanks, in large part, to the creation and success of the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail, a more than 20 mile long rails-to-trails pathway that begins just north of Travelers Rest and runs all the way into downtown Greenville and beyond.

Many folks – more than half a million every year, in fact – hop on the Swamp Rabbit Trail to walk, jog or bike from Travelers Rest to Greenville or from Greenville to Travelers Rest. It serves as a wonderful connection between the two cities.

But don’t worry. Even with all its changes, Travelers Rest still feels like the peaceful mountain town it’s always been, where there’s still enough time in the day to slow down and stop what you’re doing to watch that beautiful sunset in the sky or to grab a seat out on the porch, sweet tea in hand.

It’s the sort of place where you’re bound to see an old friend or to make a new one every time you visit one of our unique restaurants, shops, attractions or lodgings.

Don’t just run through our town.  Stop – and rest awhile.

Visiting Travelers Rest?

Looking for an eclectic and fun space to call home away from home?

The Blue Haus Studio is exactly what you need.  It’s located about 8 minutes from downtown Travelers Rest and close to North Greenville University, the mountains of North Carolina, Furman and Greenville too.

The studio is located on the property of the Harestream and you can rent both together if you’re interested.

Overflowing with vintage and unusual items from Jonathan and Diane’s travels and time spent living overseas, you’ll find the studio full of games, music (there’s a piano and a ukulele!), movies and cozy comfort.  You can prepare simple dishes in the studio kitchen – although TR has so many fabulous dining options that you may go that route too!

 

 

There’s a hot tub available and a lovely backyard.  You’ll love the record player (with a wide assortment of records to choose from) and all of the quirky and unusual decorations and collectibles.  In fact, Jonathan and Diane used to own a home goods store here in TR, so if you see a price tag on any item you grow fond of during your stay, it’s for purchase and would make the sweetest souvenir.

Flip flops.  Leather bags.  Clutches.  Wallets.  Our products speak for themselves.

From concept of idea, to prototype, to finished product, all our designs are uniquely our own.

Welcome to Cooks where we design, build and test all our products against the rigors of farm life, surf trips and adventures in between. We view all our designs as machines.  They must perform in such a way as to accomplish a necessary task. If it can’t perform, we aren’t going to produce it.

 

 

We begin by cutting and hand sewing all our products. We then test it in the field to make sure it performs and then we physically tear the product apart to find its weakness. We then tweak the design as needed, put it on paper and get it ready for production.

Dicey Langston Historical Site

If you are driving along Tigerville Road, just a few miles north of the center of Travelers Rest, you will come across a stone pyramid, about the height of a person. If you go too fast, you will miss it. But where this little monument stands, next to a private home, was once the western frontier of our country. 

Here stands a monument to mark the life and legacy of  Laodicea ‘Dicey’ Langston Springfield, a woman who would become, in some literal senses, a founding mother to Travelers Rest and the communities near here. A woman who, when she was but a 14 year old girl, became a heroine of the brutal conflict in the war in the South Carolina backcountry. In the nearly 240 years since, there have been historical and nonfiction books of teenage Dicey, a school named after her, historical societies formed in her honor, even songs and poetry written about Dicey.

iVIVA salt is the only salt you need.  Table salt contains only one mineral – Sodium Chloride.  Sea salt, on the other hand, has ten minerals but is harvested from a polluted ocean source and then processed.   But iVIVA Himalayan Salt is mined by a compliant mine in Pakistan, purely, unprocessed, and contains 84 minerals and trace elements.

Salt lamps are valuable in reducing allergy symptoms, not to mention they are beautiful as well.

iVIVA also carries essential oil blends and products as well.

Max's Little Free Library

If you’re riding on the Swamp Rabbit Trail or eating lunch on the porch at The Café at Williams Hardware, you might see something new and quite special out back.

It’s a small stand with what looks like a miniature house sitting on top.

If it was bigger, you’d be tempted to live there.

When you get closer, you’ll see there is colorful artwork on the sides featuring rabbits at home, reading.  On the front is a glass door that opens up to a world of imagination.

It’s a Little Free Library and you can thank 10-year-old Max Cook for the whole thing.   He is both the originator and the steward of the library.  Max will be checking frequently to make sure the library is well-stocked.  And you can bet he’ll do a good job!

Topsoil Kitchen & Market

864.610.2281

More than just a restaurant, Topsoil was founded by three friends who wanted to connect with their food in a more meaningful way.

Their classroom is a 16 acre farm in Travelers Rest, and their mentors are a handful of passionate neighboring farmers. They have built a thriving operation that has given them a valuable perspective and respect for the hard work that small farms do daily to put food on our tables and in our picnic baskets.

 

 

The kitchen and market they have built to showcase these efforts is in the historic Williams Hardware store in Travelers Rest nestled between Main Street and the Swamp Rabbit Trail.

Their menus celebrate the seasons and always begin with phone calls to farmers. This honest connection with the people that grow the food they prepare is what they want to share the most.

To these three friends, Topsoil is something much greater than a kitchen and a market, it is a love letter to long growing seasons and hard working small farmers

Every Saturday from 8:30am-12pm, May 6th-September 30th.

We’re so excited about this upcoming season and to have another opportunity to continue our unwavering commitment to our community, our farmers, and our local food scene. Our market should be your one stop shop for local produce, specialty foods, food trucks, and artisan crafts.

Our much loved kids’ activities, morning fitness, live music, cooking demos, and talks will also be making a comeback.

TReehouse Cafe & Studio

They’re a hub of all sorts of creativity.

Think art studio and creative space, think cafe with delicious paninis, think gathering spot for lunch and meetings.

The TReehouse Cafe & Art Studio is a charming restaurant and art space located right on Main Street.  Art fans and artists and art aficionados of all sorts are welcome.  Bring the kids or bring the buddies.  You can purchase canvases and paint while you sip on a smoothie or a cup of Leopard Forest coffee.  Free art supplies for doodling and designing are always available too.

There’s a fun wall where you can leave your name along with hundreds of others who have made their marks.

The service is happy, the menu is delicious and the good vibes are contagious.  (We recommend trying the Elvis!)

Upcountry Provisions

864.834.8433

Are you ready for our delicious freshly baked breads?

How does a scone, muffin, or croissant sound?

Gluten and Hormone free meats and cheeses make the best sandwiches, especially when paired with our amazing baked goods.

Stop by for a delicious sandwich, fresh baked bread and a signature peanut butter cookie.  (We hear our peanut butter diablo cookie has quite the dedicated fan base.  We really can’t blame you guys – it’s a hard one to resist!)

We’re open every day of the week except Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.  We love our customers and are grateful for their frequent returns for their favorite sandwiches – like the delicious Upcountry with that tasty cranberry chutney.

And, as if delicious food alone was not enough of a draw, we have a steady stream of community events and activities – from live music in the Grove to a kid’s gardening and cooking camp to brick oven pizza classes.

We’re your neighborhood bakery and sandwich shop – and we’re glad to be neighbors!
