When we decided to get away for our anniversary trip at the beginning of this year we landed on Blackberry Mountain in Walland, TN. Blackberry Farm has been on NIck’s wish list for awhile and it seemed like the perfect escape back in January to go for a drive, stay in a private cottage and soak up the wintery weather that we hardly ever get. I did a post about here.
So when his 40th birthday started to come around and with me being well, super pregnant, a trip back to TN sounded appealing. This time we rented one of their “mountain homes” and invited our closest friends to join us.
It was certainly a trip all of us won’t forget and we’re already planning our next trip back. With that level of service and still a plethora of activities we just didn’t get back to – the next experience will totally be different. Not to mention the food – it’s truly divine.
We loved our stone cabin, but this mountain home is on a whole other level. The craftsmanship, build quality and attention to detail is just unreal. My design heart almost couldn’t take it. I spent an afternoon photographing and staging and documenting just how special this place is. With 3 bedrooms, 5 baths and a wrap around screened porch it was ideal for our group and loved the outdoor space so much.
What we did:
- Mixology Class
- Wine/Cheese Pairing
- Mountain Biking
- Clay Shooting
- Culinary Experience
What we loved about this trip in particular: the time of year. It was the epitome of fall but with mild temps during the day, blue bird skies and cool nights that required a fire and a blanket. The leaves were insane colors of yellow, orange and red and the views at times didn’t even seem real.
Things to check out:
- Blackberry Farm Tour
- Whiskey Tasting
- New Treehouse lodging options
- Gift shop – for all their pantry items and Blackberry Farm Beer from their local brewery off property.
Tip!Before you check out, ask for lunches to-go. It’ll be the best way to hold on to your stay and they are really the best kind of lunch.
