Working farm and romantic hideaway in the heart of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains
A Nashville Luxury Travel Hotel of the Week Feature
Did you miss our Instagram Story this weekend? If you did, we’ll catch you up! Our very own Emily Webber visited this Virtuoso property over the weekend with her husband and friends who double as clients. Even though this is Emily’s fifth winter visiting Blackberry Farm, her enthusiasm about the property has yet to wear off; making an NLT Hotel of the Week Feature on the farm absolutely necessary!
“Have you ever experienced a place where your heart and soul feel at peace? There is no other place on earth where my husband and I can go and connect with each other and disconnect from the business of life,” explains Emily. “This past weekend, we sat by the fire and read for hours in our cottage, which we never do. We enjoyed drinks with friends around the Yallerhammer fire, met new friends and all shared stories.”
The 4,200-acre Blackberry Farm is full of beauty that can be acknowledged year round. You can explore the property on horseback, via old-fashioned carriage, by canoe and mountain bike, or on intimate walking trails. There are also quieter pastimes: a massage at The Wellhouse, reading in a hammock or fly-fishing in Hesse Creek, one of the best spots in Tennessee.
“My husband enjoyed sporting clays for an afternoon while I enjoyed the spa at Blackberry. The relaxation room is an experience you won’t want to miss!” tells Emily.

Food and wine take center stage at The Barn, where multi course menus feature the bounty of the farm’s bakery, butchery, creamery and extensive wine cellar of 160,000 bottles.
“The barn is the best place to enjoy dinner prepared by the greatest chefs in the country. The wine list is extensive but the sommelier walks you through the experience and helps you choose the perfect glass of wine," explains Emily.
When Emily returned back to the Nashville office, she summed up her weekend getaway in one sentence: “I can honestly say that the mountain escape of Blackberry Farm will restore your soul."
