In the last few years, Blackberry Farm has established itself as a sought-after destination (not just for foodies) in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains. Now, a new wellness center is set to further enhance the luxury hotel beyond its celebrated food and wine programs. Slated to open in June, the new Wellness Center & Spa is nestled in a meadow at the edge of Blackberry’s original property, landscaped with herb gardens and pools. Like the hotel itself, the spa is designed in a rustic-chic style with reclaimed materials.
Experts will lead the programs, which will focus on fitness, health, and a balanced, sustainable lifestyle. (No detoxes or fasting here.) Beyond the farm-inspired spa treatments, there will be steam rooms, lounges, one-on-one consultation areas, a classroom, and a juice bar. The Director of Wellnes is Amanda Anderson, who has worked previously at Red Door Spas, The Ritz-Carlton in Miami, and Golden Door at the Boulders Resort.
