Hotel of the week
A view from the hotel’s gazebo
“The Swag will no doubt leave you utterly spellbound by its charms,” said Mary Ann Anderson in Forbes.com. Perched at 5,000 feet with “see-to-forever” views of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the mountaintop hideaway provides “the perfect antidote to modern-day stress” with its 250 acres of gardens, woodlands, and flower-filled meadows. “Ritzy meets rustic” in the 14 suites, cabins, and cottages, all of which have wood-burning fireplaces. And though the hiking options are “unreal,” guests can also opt for classes in cooking, painting, and photography.
