About Our Lodging
While our workshops first started in 1982, the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn has actually been hosting inn guests since the early 1950s. Guest rooms are spread out between our Main Inn, the Carriage House, and the Cottage. Each of our 16 rooms are uniquely decorated and the majority feature house-made quilts, providing a feeling of home most other venues can’t match. Each room offers a private bathroom, individually controlled A/C and heating, a mini-fridge, and daily housekeeping service. The one exception is our discounted Room 6 in our Main Inn, for which the bathroom is located across the hall.
While there are no TV’s in the guest rooms, you will find a TV Parlour on the second floor of the Main Inn and in the Studio, should you need to keep up with your favorite shows. Wi-Fi access is also available throughout the property. On the walls throughout the property both in common spaces and guest rooms, you’ll find a wide variety of art and fiber art on display. Featured artists include our instructors as well as work by the owners themselves!
About The Dining Experience
Meals are served in the dining rooms of the Main Inn, a Victorian built by William S. Vanderbilt, and begin with a wine and cheese reception on the day you arrive for your workshop. Following the reception, you’ll be served the first of many fixed three-course dinners featuring both global and traditional fare. Usually beginning with a soup or salad, followed by a main dish, and concluding with an indulgent dessert. House baked bread is served fresh every night and all our dishes are cooked from scratch. We also offer an extensive and reasonably priced wine and beer menu to further enhance your meals – pairing suggestions can be made upon request as can a bottle in your room upon arrival.
Breakfast features a full short-order menu, in addition to a fruit, yogurt, and cereal buffet. You can choose anything from buttermilk pancakes, french toast, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, or poached eggs – and sides of bacon or sausage. Following breakfast, on Wednesday-Sunday, our on-site cafe opens and offers a full menu of espresso drinks, pastries, and other small bites available for purchase.
Your lunch choice is up to you, each day you can order either a sandwich or salad through us, choose from the cafe options on days it’s open, go out to a local restaurant, or bring your own snacks with you. While coffee and tea are available 24-hours a day in the dining rooms, don’t miss stopping in during the afternoon for our much loved freshly baked cookies as well! For plein air workshops, sandwich and salad lunches (as well as those freshly baked cookies) are delivered to you on-site.
We are experienced and understanding about handling all sorts of dietary restrictions and can most often accommodate your needs as long as we are notified at least 30-days in advance of your workshop.
