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. Attention to every detail, impeccable service and outstanding cuisine have helped Blackberry Farm earn its pedigree as one of the most celebrated small luxury resorts in the world. While we are honored to receive such recognition from the world's leading authorities on travel and leisure destinations, we take even greater pride in our number one ranking by our guests in many readers' choice awards. Housed in a charming 1870s farmhouse, the Aveda Concept Spa offers signature treatments using local blackberries to soothe and rejuvenate the body. All services at the Blackberry’s 1870s farmhouse spa begin with 15 minutes of Shiatsu massage to help you limber up and relax. Then, you can enjoy a customized Aveda facial to suit your skin type, followed by your choice of treatments such as the Red Earth Revival using purifying red clay right from the farm property and a full-body application of jojoba oil blended with lavender and rosemary. Finish off with hydrotherapy in the state-of-the-art Vichy Shower before settling in to any one of the guest rooms peppered with antiques, although consider one of the cottages, which come with golf carts and blissfulness!
