Went for the Sunday brunch and stayed for the day. Incredible dishes, amazing views, interesting activities. You can sit and take in the views from multiple locations or hike for the views in opposite directions. All together it makes for a wonderful experience.

Our 37th anniversary was very special so we went to The Swag for dinner. It was awesome. Beautiful place, very nice people. Enjoyed snacks outside at 6 pm and then had a delicious dinner inside. Views are spectacular and around a mile high altitude. The owners were special and gave us a card and a gift at dinner. We loved... More

There is just no place like The Swag. It is like coming home in the best possible way. We come here to escape the big city and find cooler temperatures at the nearly 5000' elevation. Everything here is wonderful; the incredible hospitality, the food, the setting, the access to the Smoky Mountain National Park, beautiful hiking trails, the amenities, the... More

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at The Swag in early September. We are from Middle Tennessee and the temperatures were extremely hot when we left home and although it did get warm during the day at The Swag, the morning and evening temperatures were very moderate and pleasant. The service here is exceptional. Your every need will be met.... More

Just got back from 3 days at The Swag... our first visit but not the last. It is a quaint B&B with un believable views. The hiking is great and you won't find better food anywhere. Their cinnamon rolls for breakfast are the best I've ever tasted. It is a perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday. I don't... More

We were in the Matthew Suite, which we really enjoyed the privacy and quiet. I have nothing to complain about and only complements. What was particularly was the quality of the guests that choose to stay there. They were all interesting, friendly, educated and made you feel like you had instant friends. We sat at brunch with four people that... More

This place was amazing! The service was excellent, the food was delicious, the grounds are beautiful, the scenery is spectacular. Everything about The Swag is done with impeccable attention to detail, from the complimentary hiking stick to the chocolate on your pillow at night to the turn down service to the room decor. The food is delicious. We never had... More

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at The Swag and could not have been more pleased! The scenery was breathtaking, the food was excellent and plentiful, the accommodations were amazing, and the staff was attentive, helpful, thorough, and made us feel like family. It's "the little things" that separate The Swag from other places; their attention to detail,... More

My wife and I have independently selected The Swag as our favorite place in the world. The food, facilities and service are unsurpassed. The Swag shares a property line with the Smoky Mountains National Park which makes for some great hiking. Need I say more?

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
