Waynesville, NC US

Rating: Conde Nast Traveler. 2005. One of the top 75 hotels in the country. The Harper Collection. 2006. Best of the United States
There are certain experiences in life that cannot be duplicated. Sitting before a breath-taking view on a porch above a garden in full bloom. Walking along moss-lined trails -- underneath 20 blooming rhododendron that span overhead like a cathedral ceiling. Wrapping yourself in a hand-woven coverlet, listening to spring showers as you warm your toes and read by firelight. The Swag is a place for rest, rejuvenation, discovery, and creation. Built out of century-old hand hewn logs and located atop a 5,000 foot mountain, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just a step beyond our backyard. With wonderful panoramic views, we are located just outside of Waynesville, North Carolina about 50 minutes west of Asheville.
