The Retreat of a Lifetime in the Smoky Mountains
by Sherra Meyers
Blackberry Farm is a hidden treasure nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Most known for its luxury farm with romantic cottages and Foothills Cuisine experiences paired with only the most selective wines available. The latest addition to the property is The Wellhouse, a place for reconnecting, discovery, recovery and even nourishment.
The Wellhouse keeps in step with its natural surroundings with appointments of earthy colors, light grained natural woods with soft and cozy furnishings overlooking the views of the mountains. The scattered art is well placed offering a light bounce of color and unique creativity border lining a gallery.
