Time at The Swag with Kathy and Doug Peters

Event leader on beautiful hikeAt The Swag, we are very fortunate to have Kathy and Doug Peters serve as Experts-in-Residence, where they lead beautiful hikes and share wonderful music.

Every morning after breakfast, Doug and Kathy lead hikes with interested guests on one of the beautiful trails on The Swag’s 250-acre property or in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which is 10 yards from the door of The Swag House.

Twenty guests joined the Peters on the first day of the season to hike to Taylor’s Turnaround and the Ferguson Cabin.  Sunday included a sunrise hike where nearly a dozen guests made the pre-dawn trek to Gooseberry Knob for one of the most beautiful sunrises you can imagine… and they were all back in time for The Swag’s Sunday Brunch.

Each evening, after everyone enjoyed their dinner and dessert from our award-winning restaurant, we would gather around the fireplace in the Swag House to hear Doug share songs that he has written over the years, many of which were inspired by his frequent visits to The Swag.

We are grateful to the Experts-in-Residence, like Doug and Kathy, who are willing to “pause” normal life and come help lead beautiful hikes, share wonderful music, and lead other activities for our guests!  Come visit The Swag with the Peters.  Book today!
