I can't think of any other place quite like The Swag. It's like spending a few days in the stars as you are near the top of a mountain with spectacular views and friendly warm service. There is nothing pretentious here. Everything about the place, the food, the rooms, the service is warm and cozy. It all begins with a long winding drive up to the top of a mountain where you escape the stress of the world below. I have stayed at The Swag at least 10 times and discover new things every time I stay there. I hike the trails, take naps, read books and get to know interesting people. I love that the staff remembers me by name and they always go out of their way to make me comfortable. It's like having your own mountaintop retreat. I go to The Swag to find peace.

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
