The Lowry House Inn
Our home is circa 1916 built by B. A. Lowry, one of the former mayors of Seneca. The craftsman style home was designed by Rudolph E. Lee of Clemson College. This South Carolina native was born in 1876 and died 1959. Lee Hall of Clemson University's School of Architecture was named in his honor and houses the Lee Gallery. This art gallery shows the most current trends in architectural design and construction. We purchased the home in January 2006 and have spent the last year restoring and furnishing it.
Each guest room has a queen size bed, its own private bath and cable television. We have free wireless internet available for our guests. You may have breakfast in our large formal dining room or on the covered wrap around front porch weather permitting. We also have rockers and ceiling fans on the porch for those warm days when you want to enjoy a peaceful moment. We are currently restoring the exterior of the home and the private back yard gardens for your enjoyment.
Our guests are treated to a full breakfast around our dining room table each morning.
Seneca is located in the Golden Corner of South Carolina. It is known as the Golden Corner
because of the climate, spectacularly beautiful lakes and foothill mountains.
