Eastern Tennessee might not be top of mind as a winter destination, but, if you are up for relaxing by a roaring fire sipping a cup of steaming cocoa while solving a Stave puzzle, or a more unique experience such as a fox hunting, truffle foraging, or learning about biodynamic gardening, Blackberry Farm in Walland may be just the remedy for your winter doldrums.
Blackberry Farm as an Inn, was started more than 30 years ago by the Beall family as a way to share their magical 4,200-acre farm in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains with friends and family. Good food has always been at the heart of the visitor experience and today, Blackberry Farm has evolved into a luxurious resort in an unparalleled natural setting with gourmet cuisine and traditional activities. The property has consistently been ranked as one of the top destinations in America.
In addition to great winter rates, the 2012 BlackBerry Farm Winter Event Calendar Includes: Fox Hunting (January 7th); a gala weekend with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (January 27th-29th); a truffle hunting weekend and celebration of Lagotto Romagnolo – Italian water retriever and truffle hunting dogs (February 3rd-5th); Stave Puzzle weekend (February 17th-19th); and Biodynamic gardening weekend (February 26th – 28th).
