I stayed at the Lowry House Inn when I came to Seneca for a memorial service for my great aunt. Billie and David were gracious, welcoming hosts. As others have said, the breakfasts were elegant, filling and delicious from homemade pastries, to Eggs Benedict, to fresh fruit. I enjoyed the backyard, but the front porch was the best feature of... More

Myself and my girlfriend spend 3 weeks in Seneca on assignment teaching for a local dance school's summer intensive. We were assigned the Lavender room at the Lowry house, and spent the entirety of the duration there. What a great few weeks we had :) The food was delicious, the rooms immaculately clean and the kindness and hospitality overflowing. We... More

The Lowry House was a great getaway weekend for my husband's 60th birthday. Billie and David offered warm hospitality and wonderful breakfasts. The house was expertly restored and renovated by David himself, preserving most of the original features while adding thoughtful modern conveniences. Of special interest to us were the ties to Clemson University's engineering and architecture programs. The original... More

Billie and David are the most hospitable innkeepers I have ever met. My family travels quite frequently, not only in the U.S. but world wide, and we can honestly say, hands down, this is the place to stay while you are traveling through or staying in Seneca. You will not only receive a warm and sincere welcome from Billie and... More

The breakfast was absolutely terrific, with many courses and enough choices to make anyone happy. If you are going to a Clemson game, this place is wonderful to avoid typical game traffic because it is so close. The hosts also were gracious enough to warm up our tailgate food for us before we left for the game. Clean room, and... More

October of 2013 was our second visit to the Lowry House Inn and, just like last time, it was a wonderful time. We stayed in a different room from our first visit, but it was just as comfortable and lovely as the other room. Billie still throws down a killer breakfast! The food is fabulous and MORE than ample.

My husband and I stayed two nights at this wonderful Inn. Everything was very clean and the rooms are very nice. The food was wonderful. We will be going back to stay again because we enjoyed it so much.

Innkeepers Billie and Dave simply do the very best of everything. The house is lovely, the grounds, the big southern porch fabulous. Dave did the renovating and brought the home to the original splendor! Billie...well what can I say but you want to cry the day after you leave because she didn't make your breakfast. Her cooking is five star!... More

My husband and I stayed there while house hunting, which worked out well since she was our realtor. Billie and Dave couldn't have been more accommodating and she's a great cook. The house is cozy and restored to it's original design. You can walk three blocks and be in historic downtown Seneca which offers quaint stores and numerous restaurants and... More
