Ok, you have to check this site out..I am in love with it. Can't begin to afford to stay here..but it sure is tempting!!!! Looks like it is closed for the winter though since everything is blocked out..and this place uses webervations.

Oh, yeah....It is on my LIST!! I wanted to go there last year for my landmark 55th but I took that trip to join up with my dh in the UK when he was there for work. (The UK was much better. haha!)
I definitely want to go to The Swag, though.

Notice how they have a required 15% gratuity added on there. :-( Now see, that just annoys me so I would probably only pay that when they'd be more likely to get a larger tip if they didn't automatically add the gratuity.

Hadn't heard of this place before. Looks like near Waynesville.... though I didn't look at the map closely. Definitely a beautiful Rare Brick site. I can only imagine what they paid for it$$$$$

With those rates I would say they can afford it and that web site probably does a lot to bring those rates!

OK, I know I'm not that place, but you can get an inn to inn HERE for the same price, but it lasts you a WEEK!

OMG! I have been to Waynesville - never heard of the place tho. Will definitely check it out the next time I am on a job in Asheville! And you can be sure I will be dropping off my brochure and references - maybe they'll give me a tour and I can report back to you all - see if it lives up to the website pictures!
Just noticed that the rate does include 3 meals a day! Must be some mighty fine food! You never have to leave the property - I kinda like that idea!

Yick, if I'm spendiing that much per night I don't want anything "rustic" about the place I'm staying.

It may have some rustic look..but look close..it is far from being rustic.

It's just my personal taste. I don't think luxury and rustic go together...like I would love a home with the exposed field stone, etc. but if I wanted to take a luxury vacation it is going to be in NYC or some other large metro area and I would want something very sleek and modern with the same amenities this place offers. If I were going to Asheville I would rent a true rustic cabin in the middle of the woods with no other people around for 1/10th the price and enjoy the same scenery that this place offers.
It is absolutely gorgeous though, it could be a movie set!

I am so the opposite, I don't want a spa or city setting, a big river rock fireplace and views are worth a million bucks to me.

I just saw the definition on that home page of swag - in my mind a swag is a bedroll for a hobo...transient :) Thus the song featuring the Jolly Swagman (who is one who travels to find work and lives under the stars sleeping in his swag). Or of course the variety of curtain.

Swag is also the loot from a stick-up.
