We visited The Swag last year for our anniversary and had such a good time that we visited again this year for my birthday. This is such a special place to visit - my husband and I both love it. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth it? Definitely! We stayed in a different room this time - The Rock Room. This is a wonderful large room. We had a fireplace which they lay every day with a loveseat and a couch beside it. Such a great place to sit after hiking all day. We had a terrace outside of our room where we could look out at the yard and mountains. Food was great again this year and they always remember you on a special occasion with a little gift and a special table. This year we were there for the Wednesday cookout on top the mountain and I HIGHLY recommend doing that. We had a beautiful clear day and enjoyed the views and the food. We also hiked to the top of Hemphill Bald which has spectacular views. The inn will pack you a lunch to hike or you can have it up the tree house or anywhere you like. The owners are warm and welcoming and I cannot say enought nice things about this very special and lovely inn.
