Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Blackberry Farm offers a captivating atmosphere with its elegant furnishings and picturesque mountain scenery, complete with the quaintness of farm animals, although some guests note event booking issues. The luxurious rooms, while memorable, are occasionally viewed as overpriced. The hotel's amenities, including child-friendly activities and wellness options, generally receive high praise despite some considering them costly. Service at Blackberry Farm is typically regarded as top-notch, yet there have been reports of occasional lapses. Cleanliness, especially at the Carriage House, consistently impresses with its high standards. However, the hotel's pricing leads many to question its overall value.

Ours was a business and couples retreat. It was exceptional on many levels. Would highly recommend for a similar experience. Nothing to think about, everything was taken care of without exception. Recommend the farm tour. Above my expectations.

We had such an amazing time at the BlackBerry Farms. From the time we stepped into the property we were treated with smiles and like family. We loved our stay at the main house, it was so convenient to just walk down to the Dogwood for breakfast and lunch. The bar is beautiful and the drinks are awesome. I had a mezcal based drink with was amazing. Sitting outside with the view of the grounds and mountains brings one such peace and joy. The grounds are beautiful and we walked all over. The boat house and the Yallerhammer were so quaint. Wished we gad more time there and would have loved a quiet lunch at the Yallerhaller. All you can hear are the birds chirping and the stream flowing. The dinner at the Barn was beautiful orchestrated, from the time you step out of the property Lexus that drives you there to the person greeting you and till the time you leave. It flows like music. The staff is so friendly and enthusiastic. The food was amazing too! We did a yoga session at the well house and had massages too. I love both those experiences. Even though it’s expensive, I can totally see why people go back. Like another visitor said- for them there isn’t any “No” in the dictionary and everyone goes out of the way to make the experience there a memorable one! We toured the Blackberry Mountain also, with the views of snow capped smoky mountains from there, can’t wait to stay there sometime soon too!

This is such an incredibly special place ! One of my very favorite places on the planet! Stunningly beautiful, fabulous food, wonderful service - very attentive , accommodating but relaxed. We took my 26 year old son and his girlfriend for Christmas and my siblings last week - everyone shares our love of BBF!!! We have been visiting for years - this was our 29th trip and I already can’t wait for our 30th in August! Haha! I’m clearly a Blackberry addict!!!

This was our 4th visit to Blackberry Farm and probably our best. The food is always a highlight and was at an even higher standard than before, and that includes all three meals. The Farmstead Tour was outstanding, we have done it twice but the couple we were with had never been to Blackberry so we decided to do again and have to say that every guide puts their own spin on the tour and made it as enjoyable as the first time. We did a group wine tasting with Brad who is a fairly new Sommelier at Blackberry but he was terrific leading the group. We also did a guided off premises hike with Alex who was an engaging and experienced guide. This time we stayed in the Carriage House Suites, which I would highly recommend but next time I would be explicit that I prefer upstairs and not a handicapped room. To be clear, the room was fine, and the view was amazing, but I would make that request next time. Several here have commented negatively about the cost and the service charge and I'd be crazy not to agree it is beyond expensive. That said, I am not sure where else someone can get the full experience offered at Blackberry Farm, the setting, the hiking, the food, wine and service, so i am not sure what to compare the cost to. It's almost like the adage that if you have to ask what it costs, you shouldn't be there, as trying to justify the expense would just frustrate. So I guess I would conclude that if you are willing to splurge for a special get away, Blackberry Farm (and Mountain) is highly recommended.

I’ve stayed at The Farm and The Mountain multiple times over the years…I’m sad to say, the service has been going downhill quickly. What makes these destinations so incredible is the effort the team at Blackberry puts forth to ensure the guests have an incredible experience. I showed this evening, CHRISTMAS EVE, with my spouse and my dog (who I’ve traveled with several times and is a registered service animal). We were literally TURNED AWAY at the checkin and not only that, the GM was extremely disrespectful, not a bit empathetic and seemed almost happy about ruining our Christmas plans. This is extremely disappointing and uncalled for. We have treated many guests to Blackberry and I’ve got to say, I don’t think I’ll be able to overcome what just happened. Very sad.

Ridiculously expensive for the experience you receive. Yes, the staff is attentive and gracious. Yes, the food is a culinary delight and included in the price of the stay. But that in itself is not worth the expense of the stay. We stayed in an Estate King Room with no view, it was ok but certainly nothing extraordinary for the price and after the room tax + the daily service charge of $259 per night, the end experience is just not anything worth what you pay. You could stay at the Ritz Paris for less than this place. Definitely a one and done for us.

We went to both Blackberry Farm (February 2021) and Blackberry Mountain (April 2022). Both are amazing. Blackberry Farm is more focused on culinary experiences with lots of activities like hiking, and of course, amazing facilities and cabins (we stayed in Leather Britches). Blackberry Mountain was more focused on wellness and activities. We stayed in the Treehouse and enjoyed activities each morning like yoga, HIIT classes and stretching. The food at both places are great, the service is great, and the rooms are so memorable and luxurious.

well worth the money. The staff spoiled us every day and couldn't do enough for us. The meals were delicious and the free snacks and chocolates equally so. The golf cart to get around was a welcomed surprise and came in handy exploring the grounds.

The Blackberry Farm experience far exceeded our expectations. The moment we arrived until we departed four days later, they called us by name, always smiled and made us feel relaxed. The price includes room and all meals. What meals! The food was exquisite farm-to-table perfection. There is lots to choose from in the wine and spirits department. The room we chose was in the main house. It was smallish, but it was serviced at least 2x daily and always super clean and refreshed. We thought the room got a little stuffy, but we could open the windows. It sure was easy to get to breakfast in the same building (with outstanding views). We ate in most of the restaurant offerings. The food was amazing, and the service was over-the-top perfect. We thought this might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but we are going to try to do it again. This was the nicest travel experience we have had in the US.

I knew Blackberry would be luxe but I didn’t think it would be as toddler friendly as it was. My 2.5 year old loved Camp Blackberry, the babysitter, the golf carts, the property, animals and fishing. I haven’t been hungry for a few days since leaving this property. The service was exceptional, the food was really nice and the landscape in the fall was without comparison.
