The Abernathy


A sneak peak into the opening of
Clemson’s newest boutique hotel

“We're creating a hotel that will be a common meeting point for friends and family to fully embrace Clemson’s pride and tradition while also generating a sense of familiarity for those who only visit once a year,”

Tom Winkopp - Developer

Slated to open early spring 2017, The Abernathy will be the closest luxury hotel in proximity to Clemson University.

For those coming home to Clemson, or those soon to be initiated, The Abernathy will be the hotel in Clemson. Located one block from Death Valley – Clemson University’s football stadium – The Abernathy will offer an immersive experience into the best of Clemson’s past, present and future. It will welcome you, identify you, and surround you with the highest ideals of Clemson.

By staying at The Abernathy you will experience Clemson at its very best.



Continuing the legacy of the hotel's namesake, Larry Abernathy, late long-time mayor and adjunct university professor, The Abernathy will be dedicated to generously serving Clemson through hospitality, service and living life to its fullest.

The Experience

There's something in these hills... Clemson-inspired cocktails at the hotel bar, Clemson blue cheese creations served at the Grab & Go Cafe, and two dollar bills given as change during home football games are just a few of the many details that will provide a truly authentic and genuine Clemson experience.

Opening Early Spring 2017

At The Abernathy, in everything we do we believe in demonstrating the highest ideals of Clemson.
