The two mile drive from the highway builds anticipation and the landscape and rustic buildings reward the wait. Yvette greeted us like we were old friends and surprised us with an upgraded accommodation. The owners are active in hosting their guests and we felt very much at home in their "home". The decor, the xm on the Bose radio in the room, the cleanliness was evident right away! Then dinner! Amazingly creative and delicious. Appetizers on the "dog trot" porch first and nice wine that you have to bring yourself (dry county). The guided hike with a naturalist/birder was icing on the fabulous stay! Concerns about the cost of our stay vanished when we realized the total value of the experience. Can't wait to come back in May for the wildflowers!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Swag is an award-winning, romantic hiking hideaway now in our 35th season. On 250 acres at an elevation of 5,000 feet, The Swag shares a common border with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park an hour's drive west of Asheville in western North Carolina. The Swag's very private setting provides inspiring views, peaceful hikes, birding and relaxation. The property's main buildings were constructed of century-old hand hewn logs and from it's mountaintop front porch, guests enjoy a 50 mile panoramic mountain view to the east and south. ... more less
