Dining at The Swag

Our all-inclusive inn provides you with seasonally-inspired menus from our award-winning restaurant. Dine with old friends, break bread with new ones, or enjoy a quiet romantic meal for two. Enjoy made-to-order omelets in our full breakfast buffet before heading out to enjoy your day in the mountains. We’ll pack a picnic lunch for you to take along on your day’s adventure. Return to the historic Swag house each evening for a social hour of hors d’oeuvres before settling in to enjoy one of our chef’s gourmet four-course meals.

Dining at the Swag

On selected days of the week, we host special dining events for our guests. On Wednesdays, we host a gourmet picnic buffet amidst the panoramic views of North Carolina’s mountains from Gooseberry Knob. Our Thursday night barbecue feast is always a favorite among guests, as is our Sunday brunch.

Breakfast & Lunch


Prepared and presented with care by our attentive staff, our hearty breakfast buffet is an enticing reason to leave your comfy beds in the morning. And, just when you’ve hiked off the last of your morning meal, our delicious packed lunch will help you recharge for the next adventure of your day.


Our exceptional evening meals are influenced by the seasons and graced with our chef’s personal touch. Our own gardens provide fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. Local farmers and purveyors help supplement the menu with delicious, locally produced items such as mountain trout from Sunburst Trout Farms in the nearby Pisgah National Forest.

Relax and experience the fine casual dining and creative regional cuisine that is the hallmark of The Swag.

Note: The Swag does not sell alcohol. You are welcome to bring your own wine and spirits. For non-overnight guests, reservations are required for dinner, Sunday brunch, Wednesday picnics, and Gourmet Pack Lunches. Please call us at (800) 789-7672 for additional information and reservations.
