Smoky Mountain Luxury Resort

Blackberry Farm

The 4,200-acre Blackberry Farm is a working farm and romantic hideaway in the heart of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains. Explore the property on horseback, via old-fashioned carriage, by canoe and mountain bike or on intimate walking trails. Quieter pastimes include a massage at The Wellhouse, reading in a hammock or fly-fishing in Hesse Creek, one of the best spots in Tennessee. Food and wine take center stage at The Barn, where multicourse menus feature the bounty of the farm’s bakery, butchery, creamery and extensive wine cellar of 160,000 bottles. Be sure to take part in one of Blackberry Farm’s cooking schools’ or wine events.

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.

Beautiful location, great service, great food and wine! Off the beaten path which provides privacy/relaxation but also offers many activities to keep you busy if you are interested - you have choices. I really enjoyed the cooking demonstration and spa treatment.

Perfection in Southern Style

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. Kind and professional staff from check in to departure, food and drink without rival, and a pleasant rhythm that allows one's soul to rest. Bravo!

Awesome experience...again!

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

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.

BF was so much fun. We booked the hot stone massage, dinner at the Barn, and enjoyed exploring the property by golf cart our first evening. All the food is beyond delicious and the views halt you to be enjoyed. They have a great saison they brew on property and we loved playing with the puzzle in the Heritage Room. We'll definitely be back.

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)

Blackberry Farm is tops....the best of the best! Our stay there could not have been more perfect. They just know how to make their guests feel comfortable. The entire staff from the cute young greeters in front, the front desk, the bar attendants and the wait staff...plus the sweet and personable household staff, the shop personnel... just everyone is beyond friendly and accommodating. It's beautiful...the Barn out sight for dining and the new wine cellar spectacular. I could go on and on....it's a Smokey Mountain destination everyone should have the pleasure of visiting.

Amazing. From the moment I arrived I felt like I was at home. The service is second to none and the attention to detail was phenomenal. On the day of my departure I felt like I was leaving family behind. The property is gorgeous. There are so many places to explore and experience. The spa and wellness program were also exceptional. And the food...oh my goodness! The food was the best I have ever had! I thought this would be a once in a lifetime trip but now I am trying to figure out how quickly I can get back to Blackberry Farm!

Our stay at Blackberry Farm was excellent -- it all started with the thoughtful planning by our Virtuoso Travel Agent, Cristina Buass. Without Cristina's help we would not have had as memorable a time. Every aspect of Blackberry Farm was lovely: our cottage, the spa, the grounds and especially the amazing meals and service. Highly Recommend.

The feeling was down home yet high-end. The level of service was top-notch and I would come back again and recommend to others. Because this was my babymoon, I feel like my husband and I received an extra-special experience. In addition, the meals were all delicious and the dining experiences were so wonderful.
