For the most amazing stay in Greenville's Historic District, you must stay here. You are made so welcome it feels like you are visiting family. Lori & Jeanette run a first class B & B. The cookies are totally addicting!! (They leave a cookie jar outside your door. Mistake for dieters!!) The meals are 5 star quality. You really don't need lunch if you eat a late breakfast. A small snack and a few cookies did us until dinner. Dinner....yeah, there's an amazing array of fine restaurants in Greenville, and Pettigru Place is literally 5 blocks from Downtown. We walked everywhere. Anyway, if you want a really fun, relaxing, delicious, and comfortable stay in a great city with tons to offer, YOU MUST STAY HERE!!!

We will never stay anywhere else!

We have been traveling to Greenville for 4 years to visit our children at college. We have stayed at the best hotels and decided to try this for a change. We will never go anywhere else! The service is amazing the the food is outstanding. My husband is a gourmet cook and was truly impressed at the breakfast!

Absolutely the best!

My husband and I enjoy staying at B&Bs and will often get away just for the weekend so, over the years, we've see the good, bad, and the ugly. Lori's Pettigru Place is so far above good, I am straining for the words to give the potential guest an accurate picture. Her hospitality, the little touches in the rooms, extra special (wine and cheese in the late afternoon) services, amenities--and the fantastic gourmet breakfast. I would have to rank this B&B above any others we have enjoyed--and certainly for the price! We will DEFINITELY return.

Beautiful Gem in Greenville

What a neat place to celebrate my Birthday! The rooms were beautiful, clean, and Laurie, our host, was very accommodating and gracious. The breakfast was delicious!!!!We would certainly return again.
