Blackberry Farm is an elegant, intimate resort nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The property, a member of the Relais & Chateaux hotel group, is located about 30 minutes' drive from Knoxville, Tennessee, and 10 minutes from the stunning scenery of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. True to its history as a 1930s country house, Blackberry Farm has 69 guest rooms and a staff-to-guest ratio that ensures a highly personalized vacation experience. This rustic ambience extends to the Wellhouse Spa, which exemplifies contemporary spa luxury within a restored 19th-century barn structure.
The 4,200-acre pastoral estate, which includes access to an additional 5,000 acres of private wilderness, offers an abundance of options for recreation and relaxation, from outdoor adventure to gourmet “foothills cuisine.”

Spa services at the 12,663-square-foot Wellhouse draw inspiration from the farm, underscoring natural elements like indigenous flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables from the foothills. The signature Smoky Mountain Mist Skin Glow includes an aromatic scrub of brown sugar, acai berry, and essential oils, a steam bath, and a full-body massage with body butter. Among the massage modalities offered is the locally inspired Hesse Creek Stone Massage, which incorporates cool stones from the region. A variety of treatments are tailored to men and children, and select packages embrace the changing seasons.

The Wellhouse has nine treatment rooms, accompanied by four pedicure and two manicure chairs and two hairstyling stations. Eye-pleasing touches such as handcrafted cabinetry and rustic stone and wood accents lend themselves to the surrounding Smoky Mountain and farm setting, while natural light floods in from oversized windows in the salon, lounge, and retail space.

Facilities & Amenities

Blackberry Farm provides a number of ways for guests to explore the rugged foothills, rushing water, and nature trails present on its grounds. Novices and experienced equestrians alike can enjoy guided horseback rides through scenic backcountry, and over three miles of paved pathways are available to outdoor enthusiasts; miles of additional trails wind throughout the 9,200 acres of wooded mountains. Two ponds and a stream invite visitors to try their hand at Orvis-endorsed fly fishing.

As well, the resort has two hillside tennis courts open for morning or afternoon play; a saltwater swimming pool; and a Precor-equipped fitness facility. Younger guests are catered to as well: Camp Blackberry accommodates children ages five to 10, while custom Mountain Adventures are popular with teens. Perhaps equally as inviting as these options is the opportunity to spend an afternoon reading or relaxing in a rocking chair on a verandah overlooking Blackberry Farm's pastoral beauty.

Blackberry Farm Facilities & Amenities

Rooms & Dining

Blackberry Farm's 69 guest rooms feature period antiques and feather beds. Guests may choose to stay in the Guest House, the Main House, or one of the many cottage accommodations; large groups can reserve the three-bedroom homes or the five-bedroom Garden House, all of which contain common areas and fully equipped kitchens. Other pleasing amenities comprise wood-burning fireplaces, oversized soaking tubs, and private patios with rocking chairs.

Two on-site restaurants—The Barn at Blackberry Farm and The Main House at Blackberry Farm—serve “foothills cuisine,” an elegant approach to Southern favorites that showcases the seasonal produce and gastronomic practices of the bountiful region. Locally harvested ingredients are incorporated into dishes such as pecan butter and spiced maple syrup griddlecakes, springer mountain chicken, and roasted Carolina shrimp. Additionally, the resort’s Food and Wine events allow epicureans to mingle with culinary icons like Alain Ducasse.
