While we may feel like we’ve had plenty of “peace and quiet” in the past year, we’d likely all agree it’s a different variety than the kind we could discover on vacation, say… at Blackberry Mountain in Tennessee. Spanning over 5000 acres in the Great Smoky Mountains, this estate combines hospitality and conservation with an experience “outfitted for adventure and designed for comfort.”

Exploring the landscape will undoubtedly be part of your experience here. Hike, bike, climb, wander! Trek and traverse the trails or get into the forest canopy on a guided rope adventure course.

You’ll get much more than a thrill-seeking adventure on the Mountain. At the heart of it all is a family and commitment “to land conservation and a passion for sharing the wonders of life.” Blackberry Farm (Blackberry Mountain's other property) opened in 1976 as a charming six-room country inn and has stayed in the family, passing proprietorship to the next generation, who continue the incredible legacy of authentic hospitality. While the estate has evolved and grown, caring for the Mountain is of utmost importance to the team at Blackberry Mountain, and every part of the operation has the health of the Mountain in mind.

Citing a dedication to celebrating “Southern hospitality, notable cuisine, and cherished experiences,” the exceptional fare at Blackberry Mountain is one of the reasons we were reminded to share this Relais & Chateaux property with you. The Mountain team not only produces their own decadent cuisine but also hosts unique wellness experts and culinary thought leaders. You can expect your mind and body to be nourished when you visit here!

As for accommodations, the Mountain holds the kind of peace and quiet we’re all seeking —a quaint cottage in the woods, a “watchman” cottage—to suit your vacation style and desires. Perfect for wandering, reflecting, learning, and enjoying.

Of course, we don’t mean to tease you as we know it may be too soon to ask you to travel here from out of the country, but put it on your list! And until it’s safe to travel, take some time to enjoy the mountains from the comforts of home with this live webcam.
