Home to a majestic mountaintop view, The Swag Country Inn is a place of unparalleled hospitality. Located at 5,000 feet, the inn is only a few minutes from Asheville, North Carolina, offering a relaxing weekend getaway from the city.
The inn started out as Smoky Mountain lodging by Deener Matthews, the innkeeper in 1982. It was originally intended to be a family home for Deener and her husband, Dan, but it eventually became The Swag Country Inn that the couple managed when they opened for business from late April to November every year.
The Swag Country Inn offers top-notch accommodations with warm hospitality and an award-winning restaurant matched only by its service. Once there, guests will have everything they need for their stay – they will never need to go out of their way to get something – making the place a great choice to disappear from the world for a while.
The inn is located along Cataloochee Divide, one of North Carolina’s highest mountain ranges, which can be seen from the inn. To the northwest are the Great Smokies, to the southwest are the Balsams, and to the east are the Black Mountains. Just behind the inn is the Divide Trail, which has been traveled by settlers for over 200 years, and counting. All this natural history and beauty is only matched by the architecture of the inn itself, with the oldest building dating back to 1795, and with every log made of hand-hewn materials from the now rare tulip poplar trees. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.
