The Swag

96 Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

High Country sanctuary on a 5,000-foot ridge overlooking Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The 14 distinctive rooms occupy the main building, individual cabins and an adjacent annex; many are outfitted with quilts, woodburning rock fireplaces, steam showers, whirlpool baths and scenic decks. Exposed beams, timber planking and assorted Appalachian crafts accent the central lodge’s cathedral lounge and elegantly rustic dining room where convivial family-style dinners are served. The Chestnut Lodge encompasses a library, massage therapy room, redwood sauna and racquetball court; also an outdoor hot tub, sauna, cooking school and broad porch providing glorious mountain views. Miles of woodland paths, plus the national park’s vast network of hiking trails. Closed December to end of April.
