Sometimes 5 star reviews are boring. I would give this one ten stars if able.
This was our first stay at Blackberry, and it will not be our last. In short, it was fabulous. The setting is beautiful, the cottage was great, and the the staff were amazing. Blackberry is an wonderful place to escape and just relax. You pull up to registration, leave your keys at the desk, and enjoy. They take care of the rest.
The food - unbelievable, but that is an understatement. Breakfast and lunch are served in the original owner's house that looks over a beautiful valley. Food great. Staff wonderful, very attentive. The evening meal is served in a barn, from a kitchen that is open to all. In the center of the barn is a fireplace that contained a roaring fire, which added to the ambiance. You are handed a 211 page wine list with a selection of 8,000 wines. Incredible! My wife and I ordered the Winter Tasting menu which came with a wine pairing, each of which was spot on. While she is the foodie we were both in Heaven from the first bite. And with each dish the staff explained what was being served and why the particular wine was chosen to accompany the dish. Awesome.
If you get a chance ask to see the wine cellar. You will not be disappointed!
I would go back tomorrow even though it is a nine hour drive for us!
