About Lillie Justice
The Upstate as the Greenville/Travelers Rest area is known had been our go to vacation spot for about 10 years. We were fortunate enough to move to the area a year ago and start a vacation cottage rental business.
Lillie Justice purchased this House in 2016
Why Lillie Justice chose Travelers Rest
We fell in love with this location due to its proximity to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, charming downtown Travelers Rest with all its restaurants, shops, micro brewery and wonderful Farmer's Market and Festivals held at Trailblazer Park which is within walking distance. The cottage is also located close to Furman University which hosts free concerts on the green overlooking the lake, North Greenville University and Bob Jones University, Paris Mountain State Park and the North Carolina State Line so it is a short drive to Historic Hendersonville, NC, The Flat Rock Playhouse and The Carl Sandburg Estate.
What makes this House unique
The cottage is located on a quiet, friendly, traffic free street. Relax on the front porch while you enjoy your morning coffee/tea or sitting on the back deck on the patio set under the beautiful shade trees or cook up a nice BBQ on the grill (charcoal provided). When relaxing, there are flat screen TV's in both bedrooms and the living room. Along with a washer and dryer for your convenience. Everything you need in a home away from home.

We had such a great time staying in this lovely house! It’s beautiful, has plenty of room, and made our stay with family much simpler than any hotel. We have already booked our next trip to Travelers Rest!
Lovely “cottage” in superb location
The Birds Nest cottage was quite spacious in it’s layout and immaculate upon our arrival. The decor is charming and the house is very well equipped right down to welcoming snacks ,tea and coffee,bottled water chilling in the fridge. The hosts seem to have thought of everything!
The quiet neighbourhood is a short walk or ride to the Swamp Rabbit trail and downtown Travelers Rest. We enjoyed bike riding and golfing in the area. Furman University has an amazing campus the trail crosses and a lovely golf course. Shortfields patio and the upper deck at the Whistle Stop cafe were favourites for a meal without having to go into Greenville.
Molly our golden loved the fenced yard and long walks in nearby Trailblazer park.
After a long Canadian winter, the lush green upcountry in full spring bloom was a welcome respite.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again in the future.
Adorable cottage! A must rent for a cozy & comfortable stay
The Birds Nest cottage is adorable! It was so clean & tidy, well appointed and the decorating theme of birds and bird houses is so well done. It is so easy to deal with the management and makes our stay much more enjoyable. Travelers rest is a perfect location as it’s close to downtown Greenville with a very quaint downtown of their own with some very good restaurants. The neighborhood is very quiet and well maintained. I would say this cottage is a must stay while in Greenville!
It was a pleasure hosting your stay at The Bird's Nest and at The Rabbit Lair! We are glad you enjoyed both experiences and hope that you recommend Carolina Vacation Cottages to your fellow travelers.
Cozy and roomy, updated cottage in central location
Cozy yet roomy cottage in perfect location for access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail and downtown TR. The gas fireplace was awesome, and our chihuahuas loved the backyard and long walks at Trailblazer Park just up the street. The hosts very graciously provided everything we needed including coffee!
It was a pleasure hosting your stay! We are glad that the chihuahuas enjoyed the back yard and Trailblazer Park. Hope you return in the future.
