What to Do During Your Mountain Vacation in North Carolina

Rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation are what our The Swag Country Inn inn is all about, so you don't have to do anything if you don't want to!

That said, there are many fun and interesting things to do, both on our secluded mountain escape and in the Asheville area:

  • Expand your horizons with our guided hikes led by renowned authors and naturalists. Check out our Special Events Calendar.
  • Delight in garden fresh meals (comfort food with a twist)
  • Soak your sore hiking muscles in the outdoor hot tub
  • Relax in our redwood sauna
  • Take a romantic stroll past our pond
  • Sing songs, traditional and popular, with the help of our player piano
  • Read, eat a picnic lunch, or just plain sit and think in one of five hideaways scattered throughout the property
  • Laze in a hammock that's built for two
  • Sit on our front porch and watch the hummingbirds
  • Play badminton on a court nestled in rhododendron that's next to our pond
