A quaint Tennessee countryside inn
On a 4,200-acre estate in the foothills of Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm is one of the South’s most celebrated country inns. Those in the know commend its exquisite location, first-rate service and delicious food — the inn produces its own cheese, eggs, honey, vegetables and fruit for its guests. The property’s two ponds and stream beckon anglers who travel here solely for the Orvis-endorsed fly fishing; other diversions include horseback riding, swimming, hiking and tennis. Epicureans savor the regionally inspired haute cuisine. Housed in a charming 1870s farmhouse, the Aveda Concept Spa offers signature treatments using local blackberries to soothe and rejuvenate the body.
