Interested in Bearskin Rugs, check out this great article about The Swag Mountain Resort in North Carolina.
Another way The Swag gets guests out amid nature is by not serving lunch but packing it to-go in a picnic hamper, backpack or “brown bag.” Take it on a hike or up to Gooseberry Knob’s Adirondack chairs for two, or to a hideaway spot on property.
Evening starts with drinks and hors d’oeuvres on the lodge porch. Dinner follows in the dining room and at small tables around the two-story Great Room, its massive stone fireplace sporting a bear skin.
The main lodge, guest rooms and cabins sit amid flowerbeds, sharing mountain meadow views. A lovely gated garden holds flowers, vegetables and herbs. There’s world-class hiking trails, warm hospitality and five-star comfort in 15 luxurious, custom-designed, distinctive accommodations.
Don’t let the rough-hewn exteriors fool you.
Inside “The Woodshed,” for instance, there’s a sitting room with wood fireplace, bedroom with handmade quilt on a king-sized bed featuring a distinctive, gnarled-wood headboard. The bathroom is a playground with steam shower, large copper soaking tub and sauna. The back porch has an outdoor shower and view of the woods in the national park.
Accommodations have wood-burning fireplaces, fridge, wet bar and Bose CD player with XM satellite radio. On the property there’s racquetball, croquet, horseshoes, badminton, an outdoor hot tub and a 2,000-volume library.
The Wednesday picnic atop Gooseberry Knob is a highlight. The view from that spot of mountain peaks as far as the eye can see sets The Swag apart — way apart.

Interested in taxidermy but never knew where to start? Check out all the Taxidermy Mounts and find one that fits best in your room!! This trend is rising and creates a unique unstoppable look in any room!! Check out the article below.
For several years, taxidermy has been a rising trend.
In the late ’90s in London, a swish young crowd revived the Victorian era’s obsession with nature preserved in glass-fronted cabinets and mounted on walls.
In 2009, The New York Times talked about the use of taxidermy in trendy magazine photo spreads and hip restaurants, as well as a subculture dubbed the “New Antiquarians” who, the Times reported, “incorporate dramatic antiques (like taxidermy) into the design of their carefully assembled homes.”
But there’s nothing faddish about Morgan Mavis’ Contemporary Zoological Conservatory, operated out of the $1,250-a-month west-end apartment she shares with her partner, Christopher Bennell. It’s a modern-day, 1,000-square-foot cabinet of curiosities, an installation dedicated to preserving nature in the same loving and studious way that Victorians did, which is not to say Mavis and Bennell don’t acknowledge irony.

Ever wonder what its like to be a taxidermist? Here’s some insight into the life and times of a local taxidermist creating items like Bearskin Rugs.
For 34 years, Jeffrey Sweet has done exactly what he loves. The Saugerties native opened his self-named taxidermy studio on Route 32 after developing a boyhood interest in the ancient art of preparing, stuffing and mounting of animal skins. But ask him how it all began and he’s not entirely certain himself.
“I get that question all the time,” Sweet said. “I don’t know. I just like the wildlife. I bought my first taxidermy book when I was 8 or 9 years old.”
Sweet started as a self-taught taxidermist, though he didn’t do it professionally until completing a three-month course at the American Institute of Taxidermy in Janesville, Wisconsin.
“It was just enough time to teach you to get into trouble,” Sweet said.
Sweet has a collection of his own mounts – roughly 175 of them, including a scene with a hyena chasing a pair of baboons – but the great majority of his work is done on assignment.
“I mount trophies for hunters,” he said. “Occasionally I’ll have a piece, like if a guy is building a log cabin but doesn’t hunt, he might want a bearskin rug.”
Sweet’s taxidermy business isn’t just local, either. He’s showcased his work at his profession’s World Show and the New York State Show, often using pieces from his hunting trips around the United States and Europe as well as Africa, where he’s gone 14 times and is planning another trip for later this year. He and his wife, Ivone, also book hunting trips to Africa.

Need some ideas on caring for that dried out Bearskin Rug? Find some helpful information from this article!
1. Purchase a conditioning oil from a taxidermist or a fur retailer. Select an oil or conditioning product that is safe to use on bear skin. Buy a bottle that has more than one application, because additional applications may be necessary on an extremely dried out rug.
2. Lay the rug flat with the skin side facing up. Apply the conditioning oil according to the manufacturer’s directions and allow it to soak into the skin. Apply an additional coat if necessary to make the skin supple again.
3. Inspect the skin side of the rug for cracks or tears. Small cracks and tears must be mended to prevent them from getting bigger.
4. Thread a needle with a thread that matches the color of the fur. Sew together the skin in torn areas, being careful to keep the skin even and smooth. Tie off the thread and cut the thread when you have finished sewing.
