“I got the relaxing weekend I was hoping for, my husband got to enjoy a ton of outdoor activities and even got me out on a trail for an afternoon of geocaching, which was much like going on a classic, beautiful treasure-hunt. The Smoky Mountains setting was stunning, and it set the perfect tone for a spellbinding getaway. Blackberry Farm is known for gourmet food, which did not disappoint!
Every meal was spectacular, and it was particularly nice to know that they source so many ingredients from the property itself, turning run-of-the-mill dishes (chicken? grits?) into home-grown culinary masterpieces served in a grand, rustic “barn.” Our room was small but impeccably decorated, with luscious linens that would’ve made getting out of bed hard to do if there weren’t so many reasons to be up and about. I was surprised to see that there were entire families visiting, and at dinner one evening three teenage brothers told us about their paintballing experience. If you go with your family, consider booking one of the cottages which looked incredible! Everything about the atmosphere is conducive to unique relaxation; the fact that even my husband was able to tear himself away from his laptop just to relax in rocking chairs overlooking The Smokies is proof that this place is something special!"
