To get to Blackberry Mountain, you’ll drive three miles up a dirt road that weaves through the Great Smoky Mountains.
It’s the perfect introduction to this Relais & Chateaux wellness resort’s MO: to help guests find bliss via a complete immersion in nature. The resort offers meditation, hourly fitness classes, pottery classes, sound bathing, aerial yoga and endless trails. Food is farmed or foraged from the property, but don’t expect to pair the dishes with kombucha or kale juice: there’s an epic wine cellar on-site. Sounds just right, doesn’t it?
