Bearskin Rugs At The Swag – 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.
