Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just think to yourself, “I really need a break”? You know exactly what I mean. Those weeks that inadvertently sneak up on you with those pleasant surprises known as extra work demands, a longer than usual list of things to do around the house, social commitments, or even coming down with a cold in the midst of it all.
Blackberry Farm in The Smoky Mountains of Tennessee seems to be the perfect antidote for anyone who has been feeling overloaded. This certainly is not what I would have imagined if you had asked me to describe a farm in Tennessee! Blackberry Farm combines and idyllic, serene location with chic accommodations complete with all of the luxuries you could imagine.
The farm is home to an Aveda Spa and two restaurants, a fine dining establishment housed in an 18th century Amish barn and a cozier option in the main building. There is plenty of relaxation to be had. One can hit up the spa, curl up with a book by the fireplace or in a rocking chair overlooking the hills or partake in Yoga or cooking classes. The concierge can also arrange outdoor activities like hot air ballooning, rafting, and horseback riding. A fully functioning farm, Blackberry is home to livestock, produce gardens, an orchard, and an artisanal cheese producing dairy. The rates at Blackberry Farm include a full meal plan (three meals per day and snacks from the pantry) and access to a Lexus fleet.
