Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 17, 2014

To come here for the food alone would be worth the trip. The farm to table, innovative cuisine, truly made the meals exceptional. We went with a multiple couples, and had an amazing time. There were a variety of activities to choose from, although many were very expensive, they all exceeded our expectations. The hiking trails were plentiful. The new spa was beautiful and serene. All around, the staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. The farm is a short ride from the Knoxville airport although you feel as if you are very far from any major city.

Room Tip: Stayed in the main house in the Lady Slipper room. The view was facing the woods. Nicely appointed...

From the moment we arrived at Blackberry Farm, relaxation was immediate! Our check-in was painless & even though we arrived 30 minutes past scheduled lunch at the main house, the staff was extremely accommodating in providing a fabulous Sunday brunch! The new Wellness center was extraordinary - must get a mani/pedi from Joy (10 days later & still looks new!). Facial & body wrap with massage were phenomenal - very private and relaxing atmosphere! Paddle boarding was more fun than I can describe - fly fishing on property and on a drift boat for my husband was enjoyed! Staff for all activities are more than knowledgable! We stayed in the Wild Turkey cottage - a part of the Holly Glade area -and loved it! The food was outstanding for each & every meal - including the "box lunches"! The charm & quality of BF is something that cannot be described but needs to be experienced!

Room Tip: Holly Glade cottages are closest to the main house where breakfast & lunch is served - walking d...

Walland, Tennessee is about the last place we expected to find anything decent, let alone of the extraordinary quality and charm of Blackberry Farm. It is not in the middle of nothing, it is, in fact, about 100 miles east of the middle of nothing, but as the Michelin people say - worth the trip. The food is astonishingly good, the accommodations excellent, the staff superb, the place, stunningly beautiful. It is as though someone plucked Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons from Oxfordshire and plopped it into the middle of Tennessee. Amazing.

Room Tip: We booked a private cottage. Highly recommended.

Service equal to Four Seasons in a farm setting. The on property restaurant is destination worthy alone. Amazing meals can be had here. They also have an extensive spirits list. Fun activities abound. Expensive, but that's to be expected from a world class establishment.

My husband and I stayed at Blackberry Farm for four nights (through a great AmEx deal the farm offers--buy three nights and get a complimentary fourth). I wished we could've streched our stay. We were looking for a place to relax after a very harsh winter, and Blackberry Farm did not disappoint. From the accommodations, to the other-worldly dinners, to the first-in-class service, this was an experience we are not soon to forget. How wonderful to be greeted and served every day by staff who are so happy to help you? (Where else can we find this? Sign us up!) Blackberry Farm offers several activities. We participated in a canoeing excursion guided by good-natured Dusty, who should write a book about the history of the area--he was very entertaining and knowledgeable. At night we had dinner in The Barn, a very large barn on the property that was relocated from Lancaster, PA, and converted into a restaurant. The menu options changed every night we were there, and while we are normally not adventurous eaters, it prompted us to try new things as every dish was incredible. The farm also has 160,000 bottles of wine on site and its sommalier recently received the James Beard Award. Blackberry Farm offers so many things--there's something for everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in an estate room in the Guest House. The Guest House is generally quieter than the other...

My wife and I came up for a two night stay this winter. We thought going in it maybe an overhyped place, but we were wrong. The accommodations and food were amazing. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with fireplaces. My wife went to the spa and had a great experience. The food is on par with the best restaurants in Napa/Yountville. Since we are down the road in Nashville, we are planning our second trip next year.

We have stayed at Blackberry Farm on multiple occasions, trying to get there at least once a year. Yes, it's expensive.....and worth every penny. I immediately hit a relaxed state as soon as I see the white fence at the entrance and hear the bluegrass music always playing when I check into my room. The food is out of this world and there is a perfect mix of many things to do or nothing at all. Looking forward to going back so I can check out the new spa.
