Sunrise at The Swag: Bed and Breakfast

Fall has finally arrived in the south, and when it’s here it’s impossible not to admire the breathtaking red, orange, and yellow palette of North Carolina’s beautiful Smoky Mountains. Nestled in the midst of the scenic views and picturesque mountainous town of Waynesville, North Carolina, sits a luxurious resort called The Swag: Bed and Breakfast. The popular destination is famous for its ability to bring their guests closer to nature.

The Swag is an expansive private resort located just 50 miles from Asheville, and within close proximity to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the renowned Biltmore House. The Swag is the perfect place to spend time with family, friends, and other loved ones away from the fast-pace of urban life.

Their all-inclusive rates feature beautiful scenery, wondrous landscapes, plenty of hiking trails, and gourmet meals at their award-winning restaurant, specially prepared by top chefs. In addition, The Swag boasts remarkable guest rooms. Inspired by the photographic beauty of the Smoky Mountains, the interior of each lodge is uniquely decorated with handmade quilts, vintage antiques, original artwork, and woven rugs. Most rooms even offer private balconies, steam showers, and wood-burning fireplaces.  If your vacation is a romantic getaway, their couples’ rooms include whirlpool tubs, Jacuzzis, outdoor soaking tubs, and showers on their private balconies.

You can include additional private packages that include charcuterie and cheese platters and chocolate-covered strawberries, or packages that provide the opportunity for art tours and tickets to explore the Biltmore Estate.

If you love a good time, you will definitely appreciate the fact that The Swag is located only twenty miles away from Harrah’s Cherokee Casino. You can spend your day surrounded by the excitement of winning it big and enjoying the social life, and then return back to the peacefulness and comfort of The Swag: Bed and Breakfast to rest the night away. For hiking fans, there are stunning hiking trails adjoining the resort, ranging from light strolls for simple sightseeing to strenuous climbs for the more hardcore hikers.

The best part of it all? As a guest, you will be surrounded by greenery, foliage, and lush forests, a luxury only nature can provide. To have the full North Carolina experience, fly fishing is an activity that you should put on your “to-do list” when you visit the Tar Heel state. Fortunately, there are many fishing attractions in Waynesville near The Swag, and you can also go fly fishing in the rivers of Blue Ridge Parkway, Tuckaseegee, or Pigeon Forge. Many fly fishing tours are even guided, providing you with the best professionals to teach you how to do the task safely and efficiently.

With The Swag located so close to Asheville, guests can take the opportunity to take a day-trip to explore the downtown area and experience the mountain town’s diverse culture and majestic architecture. From watching street performers to visiting the various restaurants and shops throughout town, Asheville is a lively and entertaining city.

The amount of activities to do around the Waynesville and Asheville area is endless, and no two trips are the same. The Swag: Bed and Breakfast is the ideal place to book one of the best vacations you will ever have.
