The Barn at Blackberry Farm

Escape to one of America’s most hidden treasures, and experience what true southern hospitality is all about with a meal at The Barn at Blackberry Farm. Designed in the same country-meets-luxury style that Blackberry Farm exhibits in its rooms, the visually stunning Barn allows guests to sample regionally inspired dishes on a nightly basis.

Executive chef Cassidee Dabney uses the freshest ingredients from Blackberry Farm’s on-site heirloom garden and its house-made cheese, eggs and honey, and incorporates these ingredients into her unique Smoky Mountain “Foothills Cuisine.”

Despite its location in the rustic foothills of eastern Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, The Barn at Blackberry Farm provides a refined and unique dining experience that uses all locally grown ingredients (just a few feet away from The Barn), while still maintaining the charm of rugged mountain life.

The Design
• The red, gambrel-style 1800s culinary barn is a unique focal point on The Barn at Blackberry Farm’s pastoral estate. The restaurant opened in 2007 and was built from a dismantled 14,000-square-foot barn from Pennsylvania.

• The Harvest Dining Room is a large, wide open space covered with reclaimed barn boards and rustic exposed wood beams. A large chandelier in the center of this dining room and a floor-to-ceiling hand-crafted stone fireplace add a sense of luxury to this grand setting.

• With tables dressed in antique linens, custom-designed chairs and sterling silverware, dinner at the Four-Star Tennessee restaurant gives both a regal and rustic ambience.

• Enjoy your multi-course meal in a setting that is both comfortable and scenic, with the Great Smoky Mountains serving as its backdrop.
