My fiancee and I went to The Swag after - like many of you - reading many reviews and trying to decide if it would TRULY be worth the money. Spoiler alert: it was. The purpose of our trip was a couple's retreat rather than a hiking adventure, btw, so I can't really speak to the quality of the hiking... More

After obsessively reading reviews for The Swag, I thought I knew what to expect, but this place exceeded my expectations. Not only is the location gorgeous, but each building has its own character, creating a unique getaway. The hosts and the staff are friendly, attentive, and discreet. We were slightly disappointed in the packed lunch since our sandwiches were a... More

A special place for special reasons ! Great food,great relaxing,and great hospitality and viewing.The food is outstanding and the hospitality is wonderful.Only 16 rooms allow for special treatment as a guess. 6000 plus altitude give views that are breathtaking.Hiking and birding are great for those with good health and interest. The area is full of side trips for sightseeing,But why... More

This was our 5th visit to The Swag and the owners continue to improve the property with each trip. Abutting the Smokey Mountain National Park, trails and the beauty of nature abound. Any of the rooms offered will swath you in comfort and rustic luxury. Our only disappointment this time around were the dinners which lacked their usual creativity, although... More

The Swag exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable. We celebrated our 50th anniversary there mid-August and were treated like royalty. The views are amazing, the service was spot on, the accommodations were rustic elite, and the staff became our family for two days. I hiked to the top of Hemphill while wife had a massage. She's the smart one.... More

North Carolina is beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous. This was my first time here. Very close friends recommended I stay at the swag as they know the owners. I was traveling solo without my family. I do a solo trip each year and pick a new destination with adventure. I loved the swag. The owners, Deena and Dan, make you feel like... More

My wife and I spent a weekend this August at the Swag Inn in western North Carolina. Since we've been in the state only a short time, we aren't familiar the Inns like we were in the greater New England area. So when it came time to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary we decided to head to the mountains and... More

We have been thinking of any improvements we would like to see at The Swag, and can think of NONE! You have provided every comfort, convenience and amenity we could wish for, including the room and the very modern, upscale bathroom. Being there only two full days, we did not get to experience every program offered, but did enjoy Donald... More

Yes, this is truly a "wow" sort of place. We have traveled far and wide and must say it is one of the best, and most unique, places we have experienced. Most of all, the location, grounds and facilities are truly spectacular. You are perched at the top of a mountain in a wonderfully comfortable lodge, with a bevy of... More

From the beautiful drive to the 5000 foot destination and the enthusiastic welcome, "We take care of everything" this was an extraordinary two days! Chocolates, turn down service, outdoor tub and shower, indoor sauna and steam, fresh coffee beans, comfy robes, fireplace and unbelievable mountain vistas and those were just the appointments in our rustic but luxurious suite! Excellent breakfasts,... More
