Over 240 years old, Swayback Cabin was constructed in Tennessee & transported to its current location in the 1920's.

Swayback features a rough-hewn timber exterior & private stone patio graced by rustic carriage lamps. Its wood burning fireplace & cozy, romantic interior offer a glimpse into a bygone era, but Swayback has been recently renovated & offers contemporary comforts including a modern bathroom & TV with VCR/DVD. .

Although our stay was short we totally enjoyed our stay. The staff was warm and welcoming . Conversations were caring, informative and gracious. The dinning experience was fantastic. We searched the area to get the delicious pickled asparagus to bring home with us just to remind of of our dining experience. We just want to say thank you to the staff for making us feel like we were at our home away from home.

The 1906 Pine Crest Inn & Restaurant was wonderful. It is set up like an Ivy League campus with a central dining area. If you love cats the 1906 Pine Crest Inn has a special treat for you. Bring kitty snacks. All of the staff members were very kind and attentive to our needs especially when it came to vegetarian dining. Make sure you call ahead and double check your room/cabin. We had to switch cabins but it was a wonderful upgrade. Take advantage of the Twain Cottage if it is available. You will adore it. Tryon is a beautiful village style city. Check out the cinema. I’m not suggesting that you see a movie but it is very classic. There are good restaurants and shops. We traveled between Tryon and Asheville and it was a very easy drive. Make sure you find the Chocolate shop if you make it to Asheville.

Nice B&B. No electrical plugs except in bath. Sorta pricey for an 90% empty. If you stay bring a bottle of wine, there are rocking chairs on the porch.

The staff at the Pine Crest Inn was very attentive and friendly. The room and grounds were beautiful. The food at their restaraunt was delicious, though the portions were a little small for the price. We had a wonderful stay!

We stayed at the Pine Crest just one night this past weekend... but we wished we had stayed even more... this was one stop in a 5 night romantic getaway thru NC for us. From the moment we arrived, we felt nurtured and cared for. Maddy delightfully checked us in and we were very pleased with our room in the Oak cottage. Every attention to detail was attended to, and everyone on the staff seemed interested in our happiness. We spend a couple of hours in the bar and Jeffry helped us pick two great bottles of wine from their extensive collection. Dinner was thoughtful and well-prepared, although we would have liked more seafood options. The grounds are absolutely stunning... we enjoyed a cocktail in the gazebo and enjoyed walking the extensive grounds. Although we were in the area for only two days, we loved our visit at the local wineries & Biltmore Estate in Asheville, and will definitely be back soon! Thanks to everyone for making our stay so enjoyable!!
