The path that leads to The Swag is the best of life itself. Strikingly beautiful, it offers all that is essential to mankind: nature, rivers and healing mountain air. Perched almost a mile above sea level, at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — The Swag is a high-altitude retreat boasting breathtaking views of North Carolina’s highest peaks. Located near Asheville, a stay here is the ideal change of scenery to leave you feeling refreshed and renewed, especially after one of the many memorable hikes. Nestled deep in the woods, it is the epitome of a romantic getaway where the concern for the environment, remarkable array of amenities and delicious traditional cuisine only add to its rustic charm. Hosting only a few dozen guests at any one time, The Swag is a favourite of thoughtful travellers who treasure the property’s rare, restorative combination of epic natural beauty and authentic hospitality.
