This year marks the 34th season at The Swag Country Inn in Waynesville, North Carolina. Nestled 5,000 feet above everywhere, it is the perfect travel destination to find relaxation, mountain views and Southern hospitality. If you need to escape for a day or for a weekend, The Swag provides every amenity to ensure you will be able to truly unplug and unwind.
Founded in 1982 by owner Deener Matthews, The Swag was originally built as a family home for her and her husband Dan in 1971. Deener continues to manage operations at The Swag, now a private Bed and Breakfast, offering memorable getaways for local and regional visitors from late April through November.
From breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains, including views of four of North Carolina’s six highest mountain ranges, to luxurious accommodations and professional staff, The Swag Country Inn will make sure your stay is enjoyable. If you prefer hammocks or hiking trails, you will find the perfect way to enjoy doing nothing at all.
