SMOKEY MOUNTAINS, TENNESSEE
“I got the relaxing weekend I was hoping for, my husbandgot to enjoy a ton of outdoor activities and even got me out on a trail for an afternoon of geocaching, which was much like going on a classic, beautiful treasure-hunt. The Smoky Mountains setting was stunning, and it set the perfect tone for a spellbinding getaway. Blackberry Farm is known for gourmet food, which did not disappoint!

Your particular style of relaxation, whatever it happens to be.
It’s a great spot for a romantic escape, but going with friends or bringing the whole family are also recommended!
Exploring the property via golf cart (if you prefer, a staff member will drive you in a Lexus) and winding up at the dog kennel where we met their beautiful Lagotto Romagnolo dogs trained to hunt truffles on the property.
Best time to go
All year, each season has its own benefit.
The weather is least severe in the spring and fall, but the grounds are so beautiful that I wouldn’t mind cozying up in a cottage in the winter or lounging outside mid-summer. The wine markup is pretty steep, but the cellar has over 150,000 bottles so you’ll definitely find something that’s worth it!
$745 - $5,600 depending on season and lodging (includes meals, snacks, and nonalcoholic beverages)
