The Swag is an all-inclusive inn, providing 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.
On selected days of the week, we host special dining events for our guests. On Wednesdays, we host a gourmet picnic for guests amidst the panoramic views of North Carolina’s mountains from Gooseberry Knob. Our Thursday night barbecue dinner is always a favorite among guests, as is our Sunday brunch.

Prepared and presented with care by The Swag staff, our healthy breakfast buffet is an enticing reason to leave your comfy beds in the morning. And, just when you’ve hiked off the last 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, fruit 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.
