My husband and I stayed at Blackberry Farm two years ago for a friend's 65th birthday. It was waaaay overpriced. Heard great things about a sister property called Dancing Bear Lodge and decided to give it a try as we were to be in the area. Staff was delightful and friendly. One bedroom cabin was plenty of room and perfect for our overnight stay. One thing they should offer is softer pillows. The only ones provided were 10 inch thick foam. Maybe I should have called and requested softer ones or just brought my own from home. Dinner at the restaurant was far better than Blackberry Farm and with cocktails and wine for two was $125. I would return just for the food. Husband has pork chop which had been recommended. Tender, juicy with perfect accompanying veggies and potatoes. I had chicken with polenta and veggies...delish! Wait staff was personable and knowledgable. Do NOT miss the best gin and tonic you will ever have! Made with Hendricks gin, Jack Rudy tonic and cucumbers. Yummy! Now make reservations and GO!
