On the surface the Swag seems expensive; however it is an inn like no other. The food is very good and generally locally sourced. The rooms are beautifully appointed if you like the natural look (I do). The hiking is excellent. It is all inclusive so no need to go to town. The hosts take a very personal interest in their guests and do an unbelievable job of remembering names. We truly enjoyed the fireplace and the in room coffee maker with fresh beans. Hint: if you like wine with dinner, be sure to bring your own. Also, keep an eye on your bottle once opened. Ours was mistakenly consumed by another guest on this trip so we had no wine for dinner. Very disappointing especially since our server was a bit surly when questioned about it and implied we had drunk it since the bottle was empty and in the trash.
