Our stay of 4 nights exceeded our already high expectations. The location is beautiful in the foothills of the Smokies. The cottage rooms are very confortable. The food is fantastic. Most of all the service is the best of any place we have ever stayed and we have been to many high end resorts around the world. It is expensive... More

From the moment you make the call about reservations you relize this is no ordinary place! The service is impecable, from the front desk staff to the wait staff -- everyone is so friendly and working very hard to make your Blackberry experience a memorable one. They even tell you that whatever your question -- the aswer is YES! The... More

I was skeptical when my wife booked a trip to Tennessee in July!! Even knowing Relais & Chateaux, I was not excited about going to the Smokey Mountains for our summer trip!! Boy was I wrong!! The setting is breathtaking and an immediate calmness and peace sets in upon arrival. Short of dinner in the barn where you do see... More

It's pretty simple: this is our favorite hotel in the world. It's not as big as others, it's not as formal as others, it's not as centrally located as others. But it's better than all of them. We've returned multiple times, each time thinking maybe this time it wouldn't be as nice, and each time they surpass our expectations. The... More

From the moment we arrived, everything was absolutely perfect. The facilities are stunning, immaculately maintained, and the staff could not have been more gracious. We live in Portland, a real "foodie" city, and can be picky about eating out. Every night at Blackberry was a gourmet delight--and the portions were just right. What was particularly impressive was the staff. Despite... More

I have stayed at a number of Relais and Chateaux properties in France and Italy and I believe Blackberry equals the service and quality of accommodations that I experienced in Europe. I booked a Holly Glade cottage for 2 nights during Blackberry's "sale period," which I understand occurs every year in the spring and so long as you book during... More

Made reservation on a last minute whim, primarily because we were curious about the dinner service. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed are dinner experience. Being middle of the week on a cold Feb, there were virtually no other guest on property...perhaps 5 other parties. Dinner was interesting and the wine parings superb. I would prefer eating more regularly at... More

It is simply not possible to relate the "lousy service, lousy food" reviews to my experiences at Blackberry. I have been there with my wife on several occasions and with my children and grandchildren on one. In every instance, Blackberry has set the standard for cheerful excellence in service. In all our travels (I am 70), we have not found... More

From the time you exit your car and and introduce yourself to the front desk staff you step into another time, your cares are left behind, every need is taken care of and, if your need is absolutely nothing, then you are left to indulge in just that. Had no desire for golf cart rides, horseback expeditions or fly fishing... More

We were really looking forward to our visit. The article I saw in a magazine and the web site made Blackberry Farm look exactly like the type of place we love to visit. When we arrived, the service was bad and it went downhill from there. Below are a few of the examples I can remember. We arrived at 1pm,... More
