Chef’s Picnic Atop Gooseberry Knob

Exceptional Evening Meals

Social Hour: 6:00pm
Dinner: 7:00pm

Join us during the evening for a social hour of hors d’oeuvres on the front porch before the dinner bell rings and invites you to settle in for a four-course meal in the Swag House. Our exceptional evening meals are influenced by the seasons and graced with our chef’s personal touch using garden-fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Local farmers and purveyors supplement the menu with delicious locally produced ingredients like mountain trout from Sunburst Trout Farms in Pisgah National Forest. Casual yet gracious, dinner at The Swag is a perfect embodiment of our authentic experience.

Thursday night is a special time at The Swag for us to honor our southern roots. Join us for a homestyle barbecue buffet including the Southern classics that you know and love.
