It is hard to put into words exactly what Blackberry Farm manages to accomplish on its lush 4,200-acre luxe resort in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. Sure, one can easily describe the award-winning farm-fresh dinners, the thoughtfully curated wellness activities on offer at the Wellhouse and the almost infinite list of outdoor experiences available to guests. It is the essence of the property that is difficult to describe. This tranquil mountain haven has been a peaceful respite to family, friends and guests alike for more than 80 years, and the deep tradition of Southern hospitality and care flows to every corner of the property. In recent generations, the stunning property has gracefully evolved into a luxurious resort, consistently earning accolades and critical praise from some of the most respected food, wine and luxury travel brands in the world. As one of America’s most celebrated, yet intimate luxury hotels, Blackberry Farm welcomes discerning guests seeking a reprieve from the harried pace of modern life. Blackberry Farm’s philosophy of taking cues from nature to achieve a balanced life is intended to extend long past the guest’s stay.

If you can dream it, Blackberry Farm has probably already added it to their list of activities. If they haven’t, simply ask and the staff at Blackberry Farm will do their absolute best to make your dream a reality. From Orvis-endorsed fly fishing on Hesse Creek and guided forest bathing sessions to horseback rides and unique fitness experiences with expertly trained professionals, Blackberry Farm creates a magnificent setting for guests to dive into a journey of self-discovery and transformation into a more healthy and fulfilling way of life—both on and off the property. With all this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the property continuously attracts “personalities” like Emmylou Harris, Glennon Doyle and Abby Wambach for intimate and RARE guest experiences and interactions. Rest assured that leadership at Blackberry Farm is staying up to date on COVID-related safety measures, embracing the opportunity to offer their guests once-in-a-lifetime experiences due to smaller crowds. If you’re looking for a truly unparalleled experience in renewal and rejuvenation, Blackberry Farm delivers. 

Due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions, many of Blackberry Farm’s experiences and events are filling quickly. If the dates you wish to stay are not available on the property’s website, simply contact Blackberry Farm directly to be placed on a waiting list.
