The customer service at Blackberry Farm is truly amazing. We were never left wanting for anything at all. Between the wonderful greeting we received upon arrival to the farm to the fire waiting for us in our cottage at night, the staff went over and beyond to make the experience something special. The food was exquisite. Every meal, all day long, we could literally sit at a table from breakfast until lunch and be catered to our every need. We loved the cottage and the Blackberry Bluegrass music playing on our radio our entire stay. It was a wonderful place and I hope we go back at some point and experience every season at Blackberry Farm.

Amazing!! First class 100%

We had the best time on our recent trip to Blackberry Farm for five days. We stayed in a cottage and had our own golf cart. When it was raining we just called the front desk and they sent a Black Lexus SUV to pick us up with in minutes. The personal care and attention was out of this world. Our only small issue was when dining each night in the barn it would take up to three hours to from start to finish. We did have a large group but others I talked to not in our group felt the same. The wait staff always were polite and attentive although food was a little slow to come out. But presentation, quality and farm to table meals were the best. The brand new spa was beautiful. The best were the hanging beds in the tranquility room. First class service, accommodations and food. So perfect for a romantic getaway.

We have lived in the North and the South and travelled all over the world. Some things are universally, and Blackberry Farm has polished them to perfection.

We have booked several vacations with Karen and have been impressed by her level of professionalism and expertise with each of the trips that we have taken. The recent trip to Blackberry Farm was no exception. We are frequent visitors to the Farm and always have a warm reception upon arrival and during the entire stay. This trip was a bit somber with a death of the Farm's proprietor. However, Karen communicated with us prior to the trip to ensure us that our stay would be handled in a professional manner. And, of course, she was right! Thank you, Karen, and your team for another wonderful experience. Now, I'm planning where to go next!!

Great get-away destination

By: MB

Reviewed on: 14 Nov 2016

Blackberry Farm is the perfect choice for a 2-3 night get-away. The setting is breathtaking and the staff take care of every detail so you can relax and enjoy Mother Nature. The 12 acres of hiking trails are a must while you are there, as it allows you to explore the grounds that make BF so special. The culinary team delivers on the "Farm to Table" concept at every meal with most ingredients being sourced directly from the Farm (or locally). Highly recommend the Cooking Demonstration as a way to learn more about cooking at the Farm. This is truly a great place to get away from it all, unplug and enjoy time outdoors in an unbelievably picturesque setting!

Wine Weekend

Reviewed on: 15 May 2017

Blackberry Farm is the greatest de-stresser I know of. The pace is a gentle Southern style. The attention to detail is amazing. All activities are either onsite or you are chauffeured there in one of the hotel's vehicles. We generally stay in Guest House but it was booked so we ended in Holly Glade Cottage. Not my first choice as it was in a glade; hence no view of the Smoky Mountains. The organizational skills are amazing. Our event plans changed due to rainy weather but they adapted as though it were already planned that way.

This was our second stay at Blackberry Farm and it was even better than our first. The staff were incredibly accommodating to our 11 month old daughter (especially Rebecca and Melody at the Dogwood, Mike at the garden, and Matt at the front desk). We loved hiking in nearby Great Smoky Mountain National Park, cruising around the property on a golf cart, and playing at the family pool. We received a tour of the wine cellar from one of their somms, Jonathan, which really made our date night to the Barn special. I would visit more frequently if it wasn't for the cost and high service fees (I also don't like that they add a service fee to every activity, including bike rentals - where for multiple days there wasn't any real "service" to speak of - and babysitting, because I didn't realize and had already tipped the babysitter)

The perfect destination to celebrate our anniversary and enjoy some time away from the kids. We enjoyed numerous activities including shopping, biking, hiking, swimming, and just relaxing at the spa. The best part, of course, was the food. Blackberry Farm is a serious food destination. Each meal was better than the previous one. It was impressive how much the menu changed from day to day (and not just the dinner menu). The other best part of Blackberry Farm is the staff. They are extremely friendly and proactive in being helpful. It's five diamond service, but without being stuffy or pretentious. Finally, our suite was amazing. A beautifully renovated old stable with modern conveniences. Charming and cozy, but practical and efficient.

What a special place! I’d heard wonderful things about Blackberry Farm and I arrived with high expectations. What a pleasure it was to find it as fabulous as described. There is a distinct charm and easy going elegance. Every staff member we met seemed to share a passion for the property and a passion for pleasing guests. Dinners in the Barn were superb. You can count on attentive and friendly service as well as a unique and delicious menu. Take advantage of the activities. A farmstead tour is a great way to become acquainted with the area and the impressive people who care for it. The hiking trails are beautiful. We also enjoyed a private wine tasting. It’s a perfect place to enjoy natural beauty with the comfort of great service.

You could easily stay in your spacious private suite nestled in the woods sitting by the wood-burning fireplace, watching a football game on TV, munching on homemade pimento cheese on artisan crackers, and never feel the need to leave. Or you could hike through the woods of the Great Smoky Mountains in pure solitude, take a dip in the pool, have a massage, then enjoy an amazing dinner at the main house. Or you could ride bikes in the morning, shoot skeet in the afternoon, and have a private dinner party literally outside in the garden among the tomato plants, cornstalks, basil, and artichokes while a bluegrass combo is softly playing music. There is no end to what you can do, but the common denominator for all Blackberry Farm guests is that you get to dine on the most wonderfully prepared selections. The meals at Blackberry Farm will not disappoint, I promise, and the staff bends over backwards to be polite and accommodating. Do yourself a favor and go see it for yourself.
