One day, I hope we can drive up one of those fence lined roads in Walland, Tennessee to the 9,000 acre estate that is Blackberry Farm. From what I have read, I know it will be my dream place to visit.
Sam Beall and his family are the current caretakers of this paradise – following in the footsteps of his parents. It has been in the Beall family for over 35 years, and they have made it into a gorgeous world to enjoy the beauty of nature and relax. How could you not relax in this kind of setting?
They have an assortment of 62 wonderful spaces in their list of accommodations, ranging from rooms in the Farmhouse, to rooms in the guesthouse, to your own little cottage. They are the perfect mix of rustic and contemporary, cozy and sophisticated – all at the same time. Just take a look at a few of these…
This one is called the Hen and Chicks room, and it is in the Farmhouse. Don’t those chocolate brown walls make that room so cozy?
Here is one of their luxurious bathrooms.
I think their cottages would be heavenly. This room is in the Singing Brook Cottage suite. (Don’t you just love that name? 🙂 )
This is the exterior of the Holly Glade Cottage. I believe it is their most isolated (i.e. private) cottage on the property.
This room is in the Farmstead Cottage. I love all those windows!blackberryfarm.com
How do you like this one? It is called the Joe Pye Cottage.
Here is the kitchen in the cottage….
and the living area.blackberryfarm.com
This porch is in the Hill Cottage. That pressed leaf print over the fireplace is just perfect there.
The farmstead cottage houses this daybed swing. I think I could live in this room.
Yes, live there. Visiting Blackberry Farm is on my bucket list, but if I were to really dream big, I would really live there. Blackberry Farm Development is now offering 25 homes and cottages for ownership at Blackberry Farm. Look at these charming rooms in some of the finished cottages.
Living there is an over-the-top daydream, but I am going to keep “visiting Blackberry Farm” on my bucket list. Hopefully, that won’t remain just a daydream, and one day I will be sitting in one of those white rocking chairs watching that mist blanket the mountains there….one day.
I’ll have more Blackberry goodness for you in my next post. Meanwhile, I’d love to know if any of you have had the pleasure of experiencing a stay at Blackberry Farm.
Until next time……
