Christmas Uptown Greenwood

Christmas Uptown Greenwood is our favorite time of year!

Each Holiday season beginning just before Thanksgiving Uptown becomes to stir with wonder.  Christmas Uptown Greenwood, SC is a winter wonderland. We are committed to bringing Christmas Magic to Uptown Greenwood for families near and far to share and enjoy.  The Inn on the Square has a display of themed Christmas Trees in each common area.  One of the Inn’s owners, Jim McGuinness, brings gingerbread building to another level.  Come Uptown and enjoy a stroll along the dazzling display of lit trees, join us for one of many featured dinners, and finish in the Fox & Hound Lounge for an evening nightcap before you head upstairs to one of our beautifully appointed guest rooms.

Introducing Greenwood Inn Gingerbread

Join us this holiday season and enjoy a display of community participation, highlighting Greenwood and the surrounding areas, made of Gingerbread.   It is our goal to encourage individuals and community groups and organizations to re-create, from gingerbread, homes/buildings/and landmarks in Greenwood.

HOW IT BEGAN – Three years ago when we first opened the hotel we knew that we needed a signature fundraising event.  Jim McGuinness, owner and operator, has always loved Christmas and began building gingerbread houses with his boys when they were just children.  We decided to incorporate this family memory into building new ones in Greenwood. With the help of the Bowers Rodgers Children’s Home, the Inn on the Square has continued to develop this event year after year.

In the past two years the event was limited to one gingerbread house on display made by McGuinness himself and the gingerbread building event for the children.  This year we invite you to join us in growing greater as we introduce “Greenwood Inn Gingerbread”.

Come check out this year’s construction of our very own Mayor’s home.

Festival of Flowers, Festival of Stars, and Lights on the Lake!

Looking for a quick weekend Getaway? Getaway to Greenwood, SC!   Look no further than the Inn on the Square in Greenwood, SC.  Located in the heart of the uptown district, the Inn on the Square is the perfect place to spend a few days for a little fun. Call the hotel and inquire with the front desk and ask for special weekend rates and packages.   (864) 330-1010.

Greenwood lies roughly an hour from the two closest largest cities, Greenville and Columbia. Greenwood is only an easy couple hour drive from Georgia, North Carolina, and the South Carolina Coast.  When everyone else is headed for the Lowcounty, beat the rush and head to the Upcountry.  Temperatures are typically ten degrees cooler and the chance of rain significantly less.   No need to do any research on what to do.  We’ve already done the leg work for you, and we’ve got an action packed weekend for you June 29-July 1! Including the Festival of Flowers, Festival of Stars, and Lights on the Lake!  There is something for everyone in this lineup.

Lake Greenwood is the perfect place for boating, fishing, camping and a number of water sports and activities to keep you busy.

~Greenwood, South Carolina is home to Lake Greenwood. This lake was created by a hydroelectric dam built across the Saluda River, with more than 212 miles of coastline, and 11,400 acres of surface area.

Take an early afternoon and drive into Greenwood and check in at the Inn on the Square with their four o’clock arrivals.  Allowing just enough time to get unpacked and head down to the fox and hound for a nice glass of wine, locally crafted beer, or a refreshing cocktail.  If you’re hungry from your trip, there is a light bar menu to choose from or feel free to order dinner from the dining room.  Each night featuring different specials.  Thursday just happens to be steak night where you can score a three course Filet Mignon meal for 17.95!

Topiary Tours, Wine, and Jazz Thursday!

At 6pm walk across the street for a guided topiary tour of uptown.  Here you’ll experience some of the Souths finest Master Gardners as they walk you through each of our 43 “signature” topiaries.   I’d suspect that will last a little over an hour perhaps.  Surely it will conclude just in time for you to finish the tour at the Art’s Center for “Jazz at the Gallery”.  The evening will include live jazz by Greenwood’s very own Steven Galloway & the Jr’s to ease you into a wonderful evening of art, jazz, and fellowship.  There will be food, beer and wine available for purchase.  One of the great benefits to staying at the Inn is you’re just a short walk home to your pillow at The Inn on the Square.

Friday afternoon you have a list of options to fill your day.  We’re happy give you directions to near by peach farms for hand picked harvesting.  The Greenwood Museum is also currently showcasing a dinosaur discovery tour that is great for kids.  We can’t count out an afternoon at the Greenwood Market featuring local farmers, producers, and our one year old interactive splash pad for a quick cool down!  Head across the street and grab a pie from the Mill House, best Brick oven pizza and craft beer brewery in the region.

Steven Galloway & Saxy Wednesday

Steven G.

Steven Galloway is starting to become a Greenwood icon. Having him play his saxophone every Wednesday in the Fox and Hound Lounge has become our regulars’ weekly hangout go-to. He went to Lander University, right here in Greenwood, and credits his professor for influencing him to jazz. (Thanks, professor!) The Index Journal wrote a great article about Steven’s talent and even mentions our Bar Manager, Nic Massey. (After playing with Steven, Nic insisted he be our weekly jazz act.) We thank you, Steven, for playing for us each week! You make our Saxy Wednesday super saxy! (Don’t forget we have $1.00 oysters every week, too!)

BBQ, Blues, & Beers, oh my!

“You must stop by the Carriage House Restaurant”



Just Peachy Blogger, Rachel Regal, had the opportunity to visit our quaint uptown area over the summer. She then wrote about her experience. Being from Atlanta and a fashionista, we were sure she would find some greatness in our town. We, at the Inn, are fortunate in that we get to host awesome traveling writers in our beautiful hotel, thanks to the ladies at the Old 96 District Tourism Commission. We appreciate you helping the Inn get its name out there to otherwise unknown travelers!

Ok, back to Just Peachy. Rachel was able to experience our Fryday Fish Special:  “If you’re in Greenwood on a Friday night, you must stop by the Carriage House restaurant at Inn on the Square, right in Uptown Greenwood. “Fryday” means you can get a huge plate of fresh fish (shrimp, cod, catfish, etc.) plus a potato, plus coleslaw, plus dessert for less than $10!” Whoa! Thank you, Rachel, for telling your followers how great of a deal it really is! It is the best in town! (You will not see Outback offering anything like it!) After enjoying our Fryday, she got to experience the Topiaries & Tasting Wine Walk, Festival of Flowers, The Mill House’s awesome pizza, shopping Uptown Greenwood and Emerald Farms before heading north to Greenville. Here is her entire entry. Read it.

Thanks again, Rachel, for enjoying our hotel & beautiful Uptown area. Please let us know when you can visit again!
