In 1940, Mrs. Florida Lasier of Chicago snagged her silk stockings on a wild blackberry bramble while exploring the idyllic Smoky Mountain foothills, and Blackberry Farm was born. Thirty-six years later, the Beall family invested their hearts and souls in the same romantic site that became their family home and lifelong passion. Today, one of America's most celebrated intimate luxury hotels beckons discerning guests who aspire to escape modern-day frenzy and slip into a Blackberry state of mind.
Situated on a pastoral 4,200-acre estate in the Great Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm will show you the many reasons why the 2004 Zagat Survey rated our property as the #1 Small Hotel in America.Blackberry Farm is easy to get to and hard to leave! Direct flights to Knoxville from more than 25 cities mean you can arrive at Blackberry Farm sooner than you think.
After you arrive, the natural beauty and grandeur of the Great Smoky Mountains will relieve you from the stress of the outside world as you slip into a Blackberry state of mind.
Blackberry Farm offers 62 guest accommodations, including Estate Rooms, Cottage Suites, Hill Cottages and houses, all beautifully appointed and furnished with fine antiques. Personal service and attention to detail are the defining elements of Blackberry Farm's award-winning reputation.
Blackberry Farm’s renowned cuisine is definitely rooted in what comes from our farm as well as the region. Often described as Foothills Cuisine, it wanders the line between refined and rugged, borrowing from both haute cuisine and the foods indigenous to Blackberry’s Smoky Mountain heritage. Guests have the delightful adventure of fulfilling their gourmet desires in two warmly inviting and wondrously inventive restaurants. While owner Sam Beall, a chef by training, insists he will never be the chef at Blackberry Farm, championing the culinary arts is what he loves most and has done all of his life. He understands establishing culinary renown requires more than a particular specialty or one person’s touch. It is a rare collection of artisans — the chef, the master gardener, the baker, the cheese maker, the forger, the butcher, the jam lady, the chocolatier, the restaurant manager, the sommelier — who blend their unique talents to create what our guests know as Blackberry Farm.Regardless of the season, Blackberry Farm offers countless activities and adventures to fulfill your every desire.
